I post this in audio/video forum but I guess not much traffic there. Here is my post:
I have a 2006 X3. When I play CD on my CD player, it only works first couple of minutes when I start the vehicle. After several minutes (sometimes maybe longer), it will make a noise sounds like drum and overwhelm my music. At first, I thought I need to clean it so I bought cleaning disc but it didn't help. I tried several different type of cleaning discs but none solved my problem. It only happens when I play CDs. Radio is fine.
Anyone experienced similar issues before? Any solution?
I also went to Futureshop and purchased aftermarket CD player, but when they did the installation, the technician told me they couldn't find a harness worked my vehicle. He said the only solution is to install another amp or something. However, I am not sure that's the case.
The other option I have is to install iPod integration so I don't need to fix my CD player.
Any suggestions what I should do? Many many thanks!
