The radio in my 2009 Mini Cooper S just suddenly died. Working great on the drive to a store, on restarting the car the radio was dead. So too were the seat belt chimes, the display on the central speedometer (including the indication lights & some other internal features like the mood lighting).
This seems to be a common problem with few if any solutions other than replacing the head unit which is a pricey affair through the dealer.
My questions are:
1 – is it just a case of broken wiring somewhere & therefore no power getting to the unit? If so what to check?
2 – can I replace the head unit with a used one from a similar aged Mini & if so will it need reprogramming?
3 – will replacing it with an aftermarket stereo actually work?
