I have a 1997 318ti, 1.9L M44, 5 speed w/ 10 speaker (non HK) stereo. I just recently installed a new Kenwood head unit. Due to limited parts available i did not use an adaptor harness I just cut and spliced. Anyways, everything works fine except when the car starts moving. When im stopped the radio plays. When i go the radio shuts off. Im stumped. Any help is greatly appreciated. It doesnt matter whether or not the car is in gear.
The folks at BMW are very thoughtful. They know the great sound from your new HU will distract you from driving and will only let you listen when stopped
Your first mistake is hot wire your car. I did hot wire to others but not on a BMW. I think you disconnect all cables except for speakers and check on the 3 main power cables: red, yellow, and black for constant power, power from ignition, and ground. Hope this help.
