I have a 1999 E46 (328i sedan) and the radio will not work. I checked the fuse and it was blown (#41). I replaced it with another 30 amp fuse and as soon as I plug it in, it blows. I then took the front wood trim panels off and removed the radio fro the dash and completely unplugged it from the harness and everything. Tried another fuse and it blows immediately when you plug the new fuse in...and this is with the radio still unplugged.
I wanted to see if the radio was causing it, and I guess it is not.
Does anyone have any ideas? Everything else in the car seems to be working fine.
Anyone think I can run seperate power to the radio and get it to work, as a work around?
Thanks for any advice you can offer!
