    Radio switches off every 25-30 mins

    Great, thanks for the info. My initial thoughts too were the ignition switch, so I replaced it with an OE new one. Can you help with what the (30) in pin 15 and (R) in pin 16 means? I assume that pin 15 is the main feed and pin 16 the acc feed? Still I will get the AVO out and do some more investigation.

    I wonder if anyone has a pin wiring diagram of the flat pin socket for the radio. I could then do a bit more investigation work to see whether it’s the head unit or the car that is at fault.

    New ignition switch fitted, to try and isolate the fault. No success. Wiring into the unit looks fine with no sign of being molested.

    Thanks for the input, I has considered thermal runaway but the unit switched back on immediately. I would be quite happy to go aftermarket except the unit is a very strange shape and AFAIK there is no plug and play option to fit straight in.

    Possibly but with two different head units?

    Radio switches off every 25-30 mins

    Problem still happening, approx 20 mins the radio switches itself off. So far have tried new headunit, new ignition switch. Logically it’s a power supply problem, as the power seems to cut off as if the car was going to sleep, so are there two feeds to the HU? One from the ignition and one from the CCU Perhaps I hate electrical problems

    What did you do to your E39 today ?

    88000 its a 53 plate 525 touring. I am a believer in the "if it aint busted dont fix it" school. BMW say filled for life. I assume they and ZF know what they are talking about but it begs the question what do they mean by Life? Years, miles or a combination? Wiser heads than mine say change it to prolong the Life of the GB which also seems reasonable. As this one is a keeper it is a good idea to prolong the life so it was an easy decision. Trouble is there are so many GB "experts" in the trade that choosing the right place for the work is not easy. Fortunately the forum has come up with a couple of recommendations. Time will tell.

    Got the gearbox fluid and filter changed. The stuff that came out was not nice! “Sealed for life” Mmmmm I don’t think so.
