Can you reboot the sound system?

Is it possible to reboot the media system (radio, Bluetooth, everything) on a Cooper S Hardtop 2015? Mine froze and turning off the car didn't seem to do anything.

I had two codes after my turbo pipe blew off the i/cooler stub on my 2012 N18 MCS and it went into limp-home mode. The mixture one cleared easily enough but I was left with a MINI-specific code that it seemed only the dealer was authorised to clear.

Resigned to a dealer diagnosis cost I tried disconnecting my battery for 5 mins and it cleared!

I think I might have 'lost' the time and some of the speedo defaults, but they were easy enough to retrieve...

Worth a try?

Hi I'm a new forum member and I have a 15 plate mini cooper D. The central display has stopped working and I managed to find a german car specialist to do the diagnostic for less than half the price of a mini garage. Result is it needs a new Head Unit. Car is not yet 4 years old and less than a year out of warranty. Cost to fix is over 1000. trying to find if there are any others who have had this problem and if BMW have covered it. Clearly a manufacturing fault and very poor electronics being used in a very expensive small car!

Just wondering if you managed to get yours working again. Mine is stuck in a never ending loop of switching off and trying to re-boot itself.
