Please help. Im near brackley. My 05 bmw e60 535d audio keeps cutting off every few seconds/minutes. Either fm radio,cd or aux. The whole audio is cut. Ive read thru many forums and some say its dvd player, some say the idrive itself. Please help

I had a similar issue on my e60 a few years ago. However my Idrive was cutting out completely. Spoke to bmw and was told it was idrive failure, new idrive required £2200 fitted. I wasn't going to spend 2k on a an new idrive!! After many hours of searching I came across a solution on honest John. It turned out to be an earth pin in the connector for the power supply to the idrive. I Stripped out the dash and idrive, long and behold the earth pin was blackened, bought a bag of gold plated pins for a few quid off the internet, couple hours work from start to finish and be problem was solved. Not sure if it's the reason your experiencing but may be of help. Could be a connector issue like mine was.
