ipod kit installed now no audio

ok so i did the install on my ipod retro fit kit from bmw, now i havent got the radio re flashed or programmed...i have an appointment on Thursday to get it done.

now idk if it is because of that but now i have no audio on anything, no radio aux or cd. i can see it playing the disk and radio stations playing just no sound at all! i checked the wires and nothing. i have a non idrive radio. any help would be great just not sure if it will be fixed when it gets flashed.

It sounds like the MOST bus not making a complete optical path somewhere. Even without coding, the new hardware should complete the MOST loop. Check your fiber connections. Make sure there are no tight bends in the lines you added/modified.

ok so checked the cables with a flash light and the light went through the cable to the other side, from the one side thats on the radio harness, the light comes to the number 2 port on the other end that plugs into the module it self. im not sure if thats the right spot for it to come out to. so i dont think its bent or whatever still no sound im lost on what to do.

Uh, if you lost audio and Bluetooth, you have broken the MOST ring. That means that somewhere the loop is disconnected, not necessarily that you broke a cable. Recheck the instructions on optical cable reassignments.

ok, the only part i havent rechecked is the funky clip that connects the to fiberoptics together, the one that was in the radio to the one that goes to the module thanks for the help!!

Glad you got it fixed before taking it to the dealer; they'd have charged a fortune to find and fix it. I knew it had to be the MOST bus.
