  3. Audio aux greyed out on idrive

    I had my car looked st today by a BMW Indy and he told me that there are no faults with any of the modules in the boot and the ccc idrive has power going to the USB hub but from USB hub to socket under armrest there must be a fault because everything seems ok until the USB plug under the armrest?? ive replaced the socket under the armrest too. so it's a case of chasing wires back to the hub !!! nit sure I can arsed tearing the car to pieces I may just get rid of the cd changer in the glovebox and replace it with some sort of iPod/iPhone connectivity unit. but not sure what yet

    What cable the USB or the jack lead ? The round plug goes the the usb hub in the boot I think where would the square plug go ?
  5. Audio aux greyed out on idrive

    So I've now replaced the USB plug under the armrest and the audio aux is still grey, ive tried 3.5mm jack plug to phone not sound comes out. checked with BMW the car has the USB audio Interface so in theory should work and shouldn't need activating what else can it be

    I just done the vin decoder thing online with my chassis number see pic it's got option s6fl i would have thought it would be active as it's not a retrofit ??

  9. Audio aux greyed out on idrive

    I'm not sure what format the USB stick was I can select the audio /aux at all even when I have no cd in the head unit and no cd in the cd changer I can still select the icon on the idrive because it's white my audio aux is grey. my dads 635d lci has the audio aux in white even when nothing is plugged in. ive added a pic of what I mean

    Hi guys, I haven't posted for a while I now have a e60 535d msport 2008 which I love but the only thing that doesn't work is the USB/ jack plug ? The icon on the idrive is greyed out unlike the CD,FM,AM icons which are a solid white. ive plugged my phone charger into the USB port under the armrest and it doesn't charge my phone at all. the car is equip with the 6fl option form the factory USB/audio interface ive also made sure the user is actually plugged in which it is. the car also has logic7. ive replaced the USB hub like for like part numbers etc. i really don't wanna spend fortunes just changing parts randomly. any suggestions guys ???

  13. 525i auto touring dsc light & yellow exclamation light ?

    No it's not the one with the cog around it it's the parking brake light but yellow, since it came on yesterday then went off when I switched the ignition off it hasn't come back on again ??
  14. Hi guys I've recently bought a 525i auto touring with 140,000 miles fbmwsh and it drives superbly until today ! Whilst out on the motorway doing 80mph out of nowhere the yellow dsc light and yellow exclamation light came on and the car felt like it stuttered when I put my foot down on the throttle and felt a lilttle hesitant. When I slowed down off the motorway and driving at normal speeds the car didn't seem happy in the gear it was in and the throttle felt dead then all of a sudden it changes down a gear and pulls ok again I then pulled over switched the car off for a few mins and switched in back on and the lights are off ??? The car still doesn't seem happy in what gear it's in at say 35-40 mph the throttle feels dead then it changes down a gear and pulls ok again Anyone got any thoughts ?

    Hi I've recently purchased an e39 525ia touring and love it !!! I had an e39 530d 6 years ago and really missed it so after a lot of searching I came back to probably one of the finest cars made imo Paul
