-pimpin328is- is an unknown quantity at this point
OK, i drive a 96 328is, and my FM radio doesn't work. All i get is static. When i bought the car everything worked fine, but a few months later only the FM radio went out. Everything else still works, AM radio, tape player, weather channel, and it still controls the cd changer. Does anyone know how i could fix this, preferably one my own because its not worth paying who knows how much just to listen to FM radio.

Your FM antenna is probably dead, or the connection severed. Take off the trim by the rear glass on the driver side. Thats where the antenna is. Check for any loose wires.

I checked my anntena amplipier thingy and everying looked ok....

so i took my brothers radio from his e36 and put it in my car... the FM worked with his radio, so my radio itself must be broke.

ive heard of ppl fixing their climate control modules on there own, so i was wondering if there is anything i can do on my own to fix my radio

Its really not worth repairing a factory CD. I know brien is looking to get rid of a sony HU. Don't know what he wants for it though, but you may be able to get that off of him fairly cheap.
