Question Lady In Need Of Some Help..

Hi boys and girls, my name is Nicole Smith, i live in Miami Florida, i have a BMW 328i 1999 E46 Sedan, for 8 years now, i love my baby sedan, black, beautiful, there seems to be a problem though, today i went to visit my sister, i was listen to the radio fine, then i stopped at my sister house, and turned of the car. 20 mints, later i turned on the car, but no audio came out of the radio.

i have the factory BMW Business radio, everything is fine on the radio, i can see the names, of the tracks, the time, and the AM and FM stations, but there is no noise, coming out of it. maybe i was wondering, if a fuse blows out, can that make it not have sounds..? or maybe did my cousin put it on mute, when i was parking.


everyone is welcomed to help..

P.S

i would go to a dealer, but here in Miami Florida, the dealers just want to rip people off, so i have done a couple of things to my car, like change the headlight, fog lights, and other stuff. its easy as long as someone can explain me how to do it. im a smart girl.

how do i un mute the radio or if there is a way and how to reset the radio.

thanks in advanced.


P.S.S

I've heard some people take out the battery in the trunk, out and disconnect it, for like 5 to 10 mints, what does this do to the car,? does this reset the radio, or what.what is the point of taking out the battery for 5 mints. . thanks

Hi i checked, fuse 7, and fuse 41 this morning.. they where ok, nothing burned or broken on the inside... then when i was looking with a flashlight, at all the other fuses, fuse #27 witch is a 10 amp fuse.. was kind of broken on the outside, but i did not want to take it out, because it seems to be working just fine.. when i checked the manual it says that its for the reversing lights, so when i hit reverse everything is working fine..ill just change that fuse tomorrow because its not that important..


so here is my problem, as i explained in my first post, the radio, turn on , and i can see all the text perfectly... i can change the AM and FM stations, the CD , tracks, but there is no audio... so whats my next step....

There could be a stereo isolated inline fuse, between the amplifier and the speakers, or similar connection issue.
