Radio plays through speakers but not headset
While on a trip last week, my radio/intercom experienced a strange failure mode. From what I have researched thus far in the archives, I will first try the "hard radio reset"procedure (battery disconnect), but I am curious as to whether anyone else has seen this failure mode. I did not find my particular mode in the archives thus far.
Basically, I was listening to an iPOD plugged into the AUX jack through my BMW headsets. The music suddenly stopped working. I switched back to the FM radio and it played fine through the headsets. After the next fuel stop, even the radio would not play. I then started experimentingand found that the radio would play through the speakers, but not the helmet headsets. I didn't try the iPOD as I had disconnected it at that point thinking maybe it was part of the problem.
Has anyone had their system fail this way where the music plays only through the speakers? The strange part is that the intercom still worked and I could still hear both the CB and the GPS through the headsets. It is ONLY the radio and AUX input that won't come through the headsets. Strange.
I am hoping the hard reset works as my warranty expired at the end of June. Figures...
