make sure power antenna wire is connected in the harness. this is almost always the culprit, since the antenna amp needs power.

So I looked up your model on Crutchfield, and it says it doesn't fit my E90.

Closest model I could find was the AVH-X4600BT, and it recommends installing a
Metra 40-EU10 adapter
as an antenna adapter for the unit.

Going to guess you never got some sort of antenna adapter?
