Guys

The radio when tuned to any of the normal FM stations intermittently drops out. The radio cuts off for sometimes a few seconds or minutes. It can usually be restarted by switching off and on again whilst driving otherwise switch off for extended period and then back on again later. Sometimes it switches off just a few minutes into a journey other times much longer but it does drive me mad!!

I have checked the connections behind the rear window NS panel and they seem OK. Could it be the dashboard connectors behind the instrument panel or is it likely to be a bit more serious?

Any ideas??

Cheers

John

Is it the factory BMW HU?

Are you saying hte HU goes dead or you loose reception?

Can you retune to another station?

Have you checked the connections round the back of the tuner? (Might be in the boot depending on which HU you have).

Sounds like dry joints in the radio module, common problem especially with older Nav systems but also with Business radios. You'll need to reflow the joints or replace the radio if that is the problem.
