E46 - Can't get the radio to work

Post by LiamE36 » 18 Jul 2017, 21:38

So picked up a nice 46 at the weekend.

It has the standard double din TV/Sat Nav head unit.
The problem I'm having with it is that I cannot get it to operate how it should.
I can get through the on board computer fine, that all seems to work.
The only way I can get any audio is by putting the headunit into service mode
and then using the next track/station change button to scroll along to a point where
the radio pops up and I can then select pre-set stations, but still unable to find stations etc.

That's basically the best way I can put it into words on a screen.
Rather hoping there's a headunit guru out there that knows a thing or two about them.

I was planning to get hold of "vasilis" over on E36coupe but for some reason it won't let me log in.
So if anyone knows him or can get hold of him send him this way, seems to know his shit when it
Comes to audio/electrical business.

Cheers.
