Q: Radio sometimes quits and says disabled on 2000 BMW 323i

Rookie cbe0621eac06868b3efe0d8d1d3611e23c60d3114864ea2ec19a68cfbd3eebab
Hi thanks in advance. My radio quit today then did work later, It says "disabled", no info in the owners manual at all. The controls on the steering wheel also did lock up before it went dead. When it did start working after sitting a couple of hours all was fine then same thing happened. If radio is shot would it be better to get an aftermarket one or repair it?

If the radio looses power it can do this or the radio could be failing. Google car stereo repair and call several companies that repair original equipment and see if they see a pattern failure.
