I just bought the DICE silverline for my 04 Z4, and I have located the 3 pin plug, but not the 6 pin one. Any ideas on where it might be?

If you're still looking for the answer to this one, the six pin plug is attached to the same wire as the 3 pin. It's taped underneath the center console and is a bit harder to get at. If you remove the torque head screws from within the center console it will give you the extra wiggle room needed to gently work the harness out.
If you've already solved this one, then do you happen to know how the heck to thread the cable through the console grommet? I've tried hangers and such but it's just too darn tight down there. I'm pretty close to just grabbing my drill...
#18 of 24 Rear speakers not working
May 17, 2008 (7:26 pm)
I've noticed that my Z4 rear speakers don't work... This car is supposed to have about 10 active speakers but when I adjust the fader to the 'rear', nothing comes out. Hence does anyone know how I can check the wiring? I've read there's an access port via the trunk, would I be so lucky as to find a loose harness there? I don't want to bring it to the dealer at $200/hr to find it! I'm assuming there's not another radio 'setting' that would turn them off? Thanks everyone.

I'm planning to buy a used Z4 (probably '04 or '05). Did these years have an MP3 jack in the car?

Did you get an answer to your question and get your rear speakers working? I have a problem and not receiving any audio from the radio or CD.This problem just appeared out of nowhere. The only thing done was the clock was reset the day before. I have checked all the fuses and they are good. Any suggestions?

i have a 03 z4 with the nav, I am trying to install the dice silverline with the dsp adapter. the store that is selling me this unit said thats all i should need. except the fact that they will like to know what type of cable I have. I have looked into this and found a 6 pin cable with 3 wires attached to it. how do I know if its coaxial or regular cable, and any suggestion about this whole unit. any recommendation as per unit and installation of the dice unit.
#22 of 24 04 Z4 Satellite Equiped. How can I confirm?
Jul 27, 2009 (7:04 pm)
I have a 2004 z4 3.0 loaded (except nav). How can I tell if the car's radio is satellite equipped (i don't have the original window sticker)? When I push the mode button it jumps to CD mode. It doesn't mention Satellite. If it has Satellite, would that come up as an option when the mode button is pushed?
#23 of 24 CD is stuck in CD player. Help!
Dec 30, 2009 (6:01 pm)
I just bought a 2004 3.0. Does not have a changer.
A CD is stuck in the dash CD player. The CD will play and the radio works. But, when I press the eject button, the radio goes on and the CD remains inside the player.
Any ideas on how to get it out?
I tried disconnecting and reconnecting the battery, but still no luck. I managed to grab hold of the CD with a small surgical clamp, but it won't budge.
