On many radios, the case is the ground, and you need to firmly bolt the support bracket to the radio and the car chassis. It will likely get a ground through the antenna connection, but the ground from an old whip antenna (that bolted to the chassis) may not exist on yours. So, you may only have a really low current capability without a good ground. Now, some have a separate ground wire in the harness, and the chassis is a secondary path. That often just goes to an eyelet that gets bolted to the chassis. You'd have to make sure that wasn't bolted to plastic or something that was isolated from vehicle ground.

#12 of 16 Radio Security Code and how to enter...
Aug 06, 2010 (7:20 am)
I had work done on my 2000 528i. Since then, my stereo will not recognize my CD player. I bought the car new/used and do not have the security code. I do have the serial number for the radio but need the 5 digit security code.
Also, after I do get that.... How do I put the code in?

I have a 2010 528 and I inadvertently put some music on my cars hard drive and now it seems that is the default music. Most of the time when I start my car it is playing that music despite the fact that I was either playing my music on my attached Apple Nano or some other music selection. I want to know how to get all that music off the cars hard drive.
#16 of 16 2006 GPS/Navigation not working HELP
Nov 24, 2010 (4:06 pm)
I have a 2006 550i which is still under the CPO warranty. last week the navigation screen stopped working (no navigation, radio etc.) oddly enough my cell phone still showed the blue tooth was engaged. I took to the dealer and he advised me the diagnostic tool was not communicating with the i drive. They did a " soft" reset which they said did not work. I was then advised that they would need to due a software upgrade for $500 (they said not covered by CPO) to see if that fixes the problem. They said if this did not work, they would have to install a new CMC $2100+500 already spent, to possible fix the problem. Mdoes anybody know what the problem is (they dont) yet they claim it not covered under the CPO!! Am i getting the run around? BTW i love the car.
