My radio and navigation just shows black screen won't come on can you advise

Asked by Dec 05, 2015 at 08:40 PM about the 2008 BMW X5

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

1 Answer


Sometimes the vehicles act funny in the cold (my Infiniti navi did) or could be a fuse. You can disconnect the battery (be careful) and it will reset your electrical system. If that does not work you will have to take it in to the dealer and update your software or the dreaded $$$ replace components.
