There is confusing and conflicting information on this Bose Audio system, both from the dealer$hip and on the internet. See our Videos on the stereo and Audio Finisher problems for help.

Common Stereo and Audio Finisher Problems
AC and stereo controls do not respond, steering wheel controls may work. Stereo does not power on or no display. Current draw causing dead battery. Repair rate includes attending to all these problems and others while stereo is in shop, $250.

Add Direct Audio Input, for iPod and other audio devices, $100.

CD Changer problems, jammed, will not eject or accept CD's, or CD error code FO, repair of CD changer and all above problems, $450.

Troubleshooting Current Draw, dealership may $ay "BCM", however pull "Radio" fuse under hood at battery to test over night. If battery is good, send stereo for repair.
