Look, here's the deal, Doug has spent countless of hours helping all of our members here resolve complicated issues with their beast. Precious hours he could be spending with his family and friends instead but chose to be here to help our members.

All we are asking is to kindly use a little common sense.

We have no idea why or how this reset procedure works. All we know based on experience from other members is - it works.

So all we are saying is - there is nothing complicated or dangerous about the reset procedure. Instead of posting more questions - just try the reset procedures first yourself and see if it works for you too.

If it doesnt work - then we got that one out of the way and there will be plenty of very helpful people here like Doug that would try to assist you on what your next step should be.

I hope you understand.

Not sure why you would be confused, you seem pretty smart in your other posts...

I realize how little time it will take to reset, been working on cars my whole life. I'm looking for a little knowledge on this subject if that's ok with you.

I have no second concern, I was referring to the 2nd issue stated in the original post, thought that was pretty clear.

Lunker325, we appreciate new members, they keep the board buzzing along. Occasionally though you will encounter a "grumpy old man" (GDay Doug! lol), please don't take offense. Give the fix a go.
Trust me, if it was a complicated area there would be a mountain of support from knowledgable members.

Yeah, my bad - not sure why I didn't understand that you were referencing a 4.5 year old post and not the your own from 2 days ago.

As indicated in the original post, resetting the system will address both issues - usually. If you actually have a dead amplifier it clearly will not.

Can't believe I'm logging in for this, but it worked! After a day where I had my brakes replaced, bedded them, and toggled the ignition a couple times trying to get my bluetooth to pair with my new phone, my radio died. Not sure exactly when (because I had the volume all the way down listening for any problems with the brakes), but needless to say, I thought I was screwed. This method worked like a charm. Million thanks!

Very helpful. Thanks - I've never had this problem - but an owner I know did - I forwarded him this link.

I can't believe I JUST NOW come across this thread. I've been in the process of ordering a complete new aftermarket audio system, and removing my M-audio/ DSP system ... entirely. Oh well, the new audio system will be a nice project. Still, had I known ... no way would I have started this long project. I will be selling my audio soon ( which will include a dvd player and I-Pod adapter. Just need to get the wiring diagram so I can remove the ring cords, cables, and attachments. I suppose I'll start looking on the search thread right now.

The wiring diagram for all the wires and connections running to the trunk. I'm not sure yet if the wires going to all of the stereo, speakers, DSL, Navigation, etc... are connected in anyway to any other components of the car. Plus I would like to send whom ever I sell the system to everything that's included. After giving it some thought, I figured if I'm pulling everything from the trunk, the head unit, and all the speakers, might as well include all the wiring, harnesses, and pods for the speakers. That way I can keep all together as a all included package. I guess my next search will be to find out what to do about the fuses that were dedicated for the stereo. If they share fuses with other components of the car and are absent will that be ok for the other components? And what will it do if that's the case? Send more power to the remaining components? Not affect it at all? And could I use the fuses for my next sound system? I'm not an electrical wiz at all. And this is one of the most confusing cars I've ever owned as far as working on it myself. Honestly I want to rid the car of as many of it's electrical problems as possible. From the strange light flickering and staying on problems, to the alarm going off for no reason, to the sound cutting off after 15 minutes (which use to be would turn off when the rpm was under 2000) and so on and so on.... I could live without all that. I feel it takes away from the great performance and character of the car.

Forget it. No, really, forget it.

While it is possible for you to pull the harness and provide it to someone, you'll need to disassemble the entire car to do so since it runs from the rear left corner across the back, up the sides, down the middle, and across the front. In other words, it covers the entire interior of the car.

No one except a BMW owner is going to be able to make use of the components you have, and even then, it will only be someone who has the same basic setup - e.g. an IBus vehicle that is pre-wired for, or already has, navigation, etc. Anyone else will find that your components cannot talk to their vehicle either because a) they don't have IBus on their vehicle, or b) the components are ever so slightly different and do not physically fit.

Even still, there will be plenty of eager buyers for your components as our cars are getting older and the components periodically fail.

ps. Speakers probably aren't worth selling, but give it a try anyway

I wish you the best on your project.

If you mentioned that you are an electrical or electronics engineer, or a car stereo guru, or some electronic wiz, then I think your just may be able to pull off your project.

But you mentioned you are not an electronic wiz at all so I think you will encounter some problems along the way in accomplishing your goal of removing all the unnecessary wiring to get rid of all the inherent electrical gremlins on our car.

Again, I wish you the best. Kindly keep us posted.

Good luck.
