the screen on my e90 radio went wrong so I got a replacement radio from ebay the part number was the same but different serial number the radio seems to work except it has no sound and does not recognise the multy changer. can the radio be sinked to the car or have I got to get exact radio
The audio components on this car require programming so you need to have it programmed

If it still does not work it is defective, but it should after being programmed.

Programming requires specialist equipment so this will need to be done by a garage with such equipment
