Amp blown? (No audio)

Post by duckson » Tue Feb 12, 2019 7:21 am

No audio problem (got HK, it’s an M2 nearly 1 yr old).....got in the car this morning and I’m getting no audio at all from the radio or online entertainment (Deezer) or anything else for that matter. It was fine last night when I locked the car up.
Assume the amp has blown or something, anyone else had the same symptoms? Note I didn’t get a load noise over the speakers or anything similar other than silence!

(I’ll try it at lunch when it’s been off for a while but have tried a quick on/off of the car to see if it came to life).

Check fuses before assuming the amps blown?
E87 118d, stock, plus PDC control unit drain, Parrot, debadged, Mothercare baby shades (but no babies), and occassionally a good layer of wax. Instantly forgettable, and thats the way I like it.

Gone (East), but apparently not forgotten.

Mine did this once, although it was only half the speakers (driver's side). I quickly turned it off and on again at some traffic lights, no change.

Half an hour break at motorway services (car fully hibernates) and it was back to normal. A 'computer says no' moment, fingers crossed yours will be the same.

Checked it at lunch after 5 hours of it locked up, still the same.....looks like a trip to the dealer is required.

Which fuse is it, anyone know?

I’d recommend opening your fuse box and checking the continuity of all fuses that are visible, they will be blade fuses with test points. You could get lucky and find one that has blown. Providing you have a multimeter of course.

If you don’t, not to worry, your car is 1 year old - get it to the dealers!

M2 with HK, should be F122 according to this

This might help locate it.

If you dont have a multimeter to test it, look very carefully. Fuses can break and to the naked eye the break is almost invisible.

If a fuse has blown take the car to the dealers as it’s blown for a reason.
