Hey guys, I dont know what is going on. I thought I read somewhere that you could calibrate the equilizer for the audio system by pushing the Audio button that is on the dash. Well it seems that no matter what, this button isnt working. Is there anything special that I need to do to get to the audio options? I dont have a CD changer in my car where there are hook-ups, but I wouldnt imagine this would have any effect on the audio options button. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

Seth

I have a 97 528i

If you press and hold the M button it will reset your stereo to middle that's all.

Well... there are more options with the premium audio... and if you dont have a cd changer, I dont think you have premium sound, so all the audio button will do is talk you from the computer / clock screen back to the audio screen.

Well my car has the hook-ups for the cd changer, but I dont know if it originally came with it or not. What else comes with the Premium Sound equipment? Thanks for the quick responses.

Try pressing the DSP button...then press either MEM 1 or MEM 2...then hit the EQU button...then you can adjust from 5K all the way up to 200K or something like that. The AUDIO button gets you back to the radio display, rather than getting you into the actual audio adjustments.

the audio button and the dsp is on the same bar (button)... Sounds like you do not have the premium sound (DSP) based on your description.

The switch button should read:
AUDIO DSP

If you only see the word AUDIO on the button, it means you have no premium sound.
