Product Research

Features

Overview: The AXXESS BMRC-01 interface is designed to allow you to replace the OEM radio with an aftermarket head unit in non-amplified BMW/Mini vehicles or BMW/Mini vehicles that have the OEM amplifier bypassed. The BMRC-01 will retain all warning chimes (via built-in speaker) which are lost when the OEM radio is removed. It also provides a 10A/12V switched accessory wire for proper radio operation, and the R.A.P. (Retained Accessory Power) feature will be retained. In addition, the BMRC-01 provides navigation outputs (VSS, Parking Brake, and Reverse) to help ease the installation process.

Compatibility: The Axxess BMRC-01 is compatible with the following 2006-up BMW & Mini vehicles (as of 4/24/2015).

Make Model Year
BMW 1-Series 2008-up
3-Series 2006-up
Mini Cooper 2007-up
Clubman 2008-up
Note: Please consult Crutchfield's Outfit My Car to see if your vehicle is compatible and what additional accessories will be needed.

Q
I installed this axxess bmrc-01 wiring harness in a 2009 mini cooper. Following the installation instructions, the radio works but only shuts off by the power button on the radio it does not turn on and off with the car. Also, the chime is not working. Any ideas?

Check your connections. The only turning off with the power button makes me think maybe the yellow (battery/constant) and red (ignition power) might be switched. Make sure there is also no loose wires. I also had a problem with mine with the blue wires from the manual were wrong. Once I called crutchfield the tech explained and I got it connected to the right wire.

Sounds like it may not be connected right or you have a bad unit. Double check the power and verify that you have a switched input and not a constant 12v. It is weird the unit is not making any chimes. Again with the connections and verify it works before pushing everything inside if you can.

The yellow wire that goes directly to the battery is only hooked to the yellow on the deck correct and not the red wire also? Is this a factory hifi 10 speaker or the std 6 speaker system?

Q
Does this kit also retain the stock radio controls on the steering wheel ?
[ Franco  May 07, 2014 ]
1 answer
A
This harness does not make the connections to retail steering wheel controls. The ability to retain steering wheel controls with aftermarket receivers will be determined by the receiver you are using and the vehicle you have. For full information on this type of integration (including the parts you will need) please contact an Advisor by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat.
