BMW X3 Owners Manual: Radio ready state

Activate radio-ready state:

  • When the engine is running: press the Start/Stop button.

Some electronic systems/power consumers remain ready for operation.

The radio-ready state switches off automatically:

  • After approx. 8 minutes.
  • When the vehicle is locked using the central locking system.
  • Shortly before the battery is discharged completely, so that the engine can still be started.

The radio-ready state remains active if, e.g., the ignition is automatically switched off for the following reasons:

  • Opening or closing the driver's door.
  • Unfastening of the driver's safety belt.
  • When automatically switching from low beams to parking lights.

If the engine is switched off and the ignition is switched on, the system automatically switches to the radio-ready state if the lights are turned off or, if correspondingly equipped, the daytime running lights are activated.
