Re: Where Can I purchase a bose companion 5 control pod?
Its hard to find something for bose companion 5 (you can for 3, but not for 5). The best you can do is, to contact some vendor (who sells bose companion 5) and ask if he can help. check on ebay/amazon for sellers. Here is one:

check your wiring connections, sounds like you may have intermittent connection somewhere, and this is the most likely culprit. be certain that all connections are solid. multi pin plugs are notorious for having one bad pin.
Does not seem very complex. I think it is because of the broken fuse. Simply Open the back part of Bose companion 5. The Circuit board attached to the back part is basically for the Audio output socket, Control pod Connector and Power supply connector. on the Left hand side of the board you will find a fuse soldered with the board. most probably that fuse is broken. replace the fuse if broken or just connect both end of the fuse with thin wire (temporary) to check. Hope it helps.

I had the same problem right out of the gate, the volume dial on my control pod for my Companion 5 wasn't working, however, the touch pad and LED worked. I called Bose customer service and was instructed to:
First, unplug the power directly at the back of the woofer while the unit was on;
Next, I was instructed to unplug the control pod, visually inspect for any damage/defect;
Finally, re-seat the control pod on the back of the woofer and then lastly plug the power cable back into the woofer.
Try changing the plug on the control pod, those plugs are fairly weak and prone to breakage. Does there appear to be any strain at all on the plug itself? if so then that is where I would start. If you have a series 2 then I can help you, or if you can find out if the 2 control pods are the same, that would be fine too, but I have a series 2 system companion 3 and if needed I will cut my cable to trace the wiring and then replace your plug for you. my cost for this would be $40, that includes return shipping with priority mail.
