E46 M3 radio doesnt work

Hello, as i was driving this morning I wanted to change my radio station but soon realized that none of my radio buttons were responsive, but the radio was running. So at a red light i turned off and then on my engine. Then I was able to turn off my radio, but could not turn it on again!! NONE of my radio buttons work.
Would someone please be able to shine light as to why this is and a possible fix?

My car 2004 BMW M3 - 71000kms
Its OEM radio/GPS

Similar thing happened to me once. Turned out to be a loose/bad battery connection in the trunk.

Yup, that's what I stated.

I removed the connector wire and reconnected it. Worked perfectly since.

Didnt get a chance to reply on the thread... It turned out to be a loose fuse. And after it was taken out then put back in, it worked perfectly.

Thanks for your help
