What happened to my car???

2005 E46 M3 w/ factory nav

Got in the car this morning and started driving and noticed the radio wasn't on. Weird. I never turn it off. Tried turning it on and it wouldn't come on. Checked the volume. Nothing. None of the radio buttons are working. Mode, AM/FM, Info, station presets, etc.

Also, the nav voice isn't working.

Interestingly enough, the blue tooth voice assist is working, so I know the speakers are ok.

What the hell?

Did I blow the radio computer or something?

Check your fuses.

Thanks. Will take a look at lunch time. Saw on another forum you need to pull fuses 7 & 41 for a few minutes to reset things. If that doesn't fix it, the radio is blown?

7 & 41 control the nav, radio, and the monitor. More than likely one or both are blown. If not, yes, you can pull them to try a reset.

Pulled my fuses... they were both good. Stuck them back in after a few and the radio started working. PHEW. Replacing the radio is probably $1000 + a week of drama with the dealer. Thanks for the help.
