this is not strange at all, the problem is the symptom of a defective antenna or the antenna ground to the chassis sheet metal of the car, also the coax to the radio can be defective.

your radio is shot, and the cd and tape player still works. You have to buy a new radio if you want to listen to a radio.

Sat nav and radio not working


Good Afternoon Michael

Sounds most likely to be an antenna issue. Most everything going into the radio needs an antenna to be picked up. Sometimes, a station or two might still be heard above the static if they are local and fairly strong signals.

If you can get normal sound from other inputs, like MP3 players or CDs, then the amp and output parts of the unit are fine, and it's an issue of getting an input signal to use.

If you have the tools, pull the stereo head unit from the dash and make sure the antenna input cable(s) are firmly in place. Likewise, depending on location, you can likely get to the base of the external antenna, where the other end of the cable plugs in, and make sure it's in snugly.

lacking the tools - you can talk to your dealer or a local car audio place. They'll likely have the tools, and a check for antenna cable connection would not likely be too expensive or time-intensive.

Good Luck!

My uconnect in my 2008 Jeep wrangler have the time works sometimes it won't come on or you can use the touch screen to change radio stations. Help????


i cant understand your post. "have time" and (it wont come on) and
or you can use touch, << did you mean Can't ?)
tell that which works and does not. (
media center 730n? this failing
with Navigation?

get it serviced,?
this is what we call the magic features, Uconnect.
(window dressing bad?)
DIY ? what are you asking?
Help to do WHAT.?

or check fuses.
is car battery charged to 12.6vdc rested???? or at below 11v.?
does car run and drive? perfectly,

in the shop, they checks fuse, and battery voltage.
then they scan the PCM for errors, if they have errors the fix
that first. like bad comms to u connect/nav, radio , ,etc.
then work up to the actual head. finally replacing it.

these are fancy , complex to the max , high end options.
and when they bust are expensive to fix. '

my guess is you have this system.?
AM/FM (1-CD/DVD/MP3), full map navigation (6.5" integrated touch screen display), 1-disc data drive,
integral satellite & input jacks (RER)

"These radio receivers can only be serviced by an authorized radio repair station. See the latest Warranty Policies
for a current listing of authorized radio repair stations"
this means very special tools are needed to fix the unit
and access to special software updates in the unit.
go to the dealer an get just that.

Thats a very unprofessional attitude from a BMW dealer.The least they could have done was to try on your X3 a radio from another X3 and that way eliminate or not,if it your radio is faulty.I work at a Bmw dealer and thats the thing we would do.An issue like yours would not come up on the computer!If they checked all the aerial wiring from the radio to aerial and its ok,then its a faulty radio FM tuner.
Is your car still under warranty.Either way report the dealer to Bmw NA.

2008 Nissan Altima radio (AM/FM/CD) does not respond to buttons except on/off volume. It was playing an FM station (cant't tune/scan) and now plays a CD that won't eject.


2008 Altima radio-the sound just quit working. Everything else seems to be OK. I can change the radio stations, but no sound. Is there a fuse that could be bad?

I would look for a ground that is inadequate.
If any part of this is operating essentially without shielding due to a bad ground, then cell towers, a radio or TV station transmitter, CBs, land mobile radio, amateur radio - any of these can inject enough signal to drive modern electronics completely bananas.
The onboard electronics used for just about everything that is remotely controlled by switches generates a ton of digital garbage and can interfere with anything.

The kind of problem you are experiencing started when we stopped using vacuum tubes 50 years ago operating at high voltages and started using semiconductors that use much lower voltages.

A tech with a common multimeter should be able to locate the missing ground connection without too much trouble.
