Hey guys,

I have a 2003 540i with Navigation.. 6 cd changer, tape, etc... anyway, my sound is not working. I can change the cd's, tracks, radio station but no sound.

Here's what I noticed.

1. Sound working fine.
2. Turned off car, 1 hour later turned the car on... sound not working.
3. Turned the radio off (orange light off) and back on, it worked for the remainder of the day
4. Turned the car off several times.
5. It worked before i turned the car off,
6. Went to drive home several hours later, and it never worked.

Now it just doesn't work, the sound just doesn't want to come out. Any idea what is wrong? What I can do? I am new to the car, I might have done something wrong?

Please let me know.

Thank you.

Sounds like you have a short inside the radio... or the hook up from the radio to the speakers is loose... The car should still be under warranty!!! if not let me know, I'll hook you up with customer relations at BMW!! THEY'RE GREAT AT SOLVING THIS TYPE OF PROBLEMS

Could be a fuse problem running the amp in the trunk but like LOS said it is probably a short in the radio or the speaker wiring.
