Thread: Radio Problem

    Angry Radio Problem

    This morning I changed the FM Station and none of the Radio Controls would work, except the Volume Control. It won't even shut off. I restarted the Car and no change.
    Any Ideas?
    I still LUV MY Z8!

    Hi Joe,My radio went out a few years back, and it was replaced. More recently others spoke about repair shops in Germany and in Florida that may be an alternative solution. http://www.bmwz8.us/forum/stereo-phone-navigation-radar-detectors/radio-dead-4534.html

    I still love my Z8 too!

    I do too, now that I am "of a certain age". I guess it is true of cars also.

    There is a certain joyous frustration to living with a Z8. Like cats.

    First thing you should do is check the fuses, one in glovebox, 2nd in fuse panel where the nav unit is. Take both fuses out (I can't remember the numbers but there is a diagram) and coat the contact points lightly with dielectric grease, then replace. I had sent my radio to Germany and it worked when I got it back, then stopped, now works again after doing the fuses. That's what 18 years of oxidation will do!
