PROFESSIONAL BMW E60 E63 E64 E90 E92 E93 E91 E61 E87 E70 AND OTHERS CCC NAVIGATION PROFESSIONAL UNIT REPAIR SERVICE IN USA! YES, PROBABLY THE ONLY ONE FOR NOW.

 
ANY BMW CCC REPAIR SERVICE 2004-2008
In this post we are going to talk about very common issue with BMW CCC (CAR COMMUNICATION COMPUTER) NAVIGATION UNIT, these units were installed on all BMW cars starting from 2004 with E65 E66 RR exception (they use different network). Back in 2004 it was one of the most advanced units for those days and even now its got some impressive features:
  • Now CCC unit has 5 modules built in (CAPL, CHOST, ASK, CTUNER, MOST GATEWAY)
  • Easier to diagnose since 5 modules in one, unlike e65 where all separated
  • DVD navigation USA&CANADA fits on one disc only!
  • Supports MOST and CAN bus networks
  • Supports MP3 for both slots with folder trees etc. (early models need to be updated)
  • Now CCC unit is a MOST gateway, unlike E65 (CID)
  • Has new faster (for those days) processor 6417751R and HD64404BT chip set
  • Supports tons of new options you can code in NCS
  • More reliable compared to MK3 MK4 older units
  • Its a real laptop inside with memory, CPU and even RAM can be removed similar to your laptop
  • part numbers, there might be different from ones listed here, but it does not matter since we repair them all: 6953773 6962545 6962545  6953774 9117564 6974914 6962545 9170703
These units are always located in the front dash and have 2 slots (CD&DVD), if you have only one slot it means you have newer generation navigation unit called CIC or CAR INFOTAINMENT COMPUTER So what's wrong with them??? You can check any forum or simply type “BMW ccc failure” in Google, and you will find lots of posts. Unfortunately they fail usually after 3-5 years probably, because either some chips were defective or because their lifespan is short. Standard symptoms include:
  • Restarting rebooting all the time

  • BMW logo stuck flickering

  • Nothing on the screen and an running all the time draining battery (ppl remove fuse to solve battery drain)

  • No sound, cutting on and off

  • No communication with INPA or ISTA internal faults etc.

  • IDRIVE spins freely, no control over CCC navi unit.

There were 2 generations of CCC units installed:

  • 2004-2006 first generation E60 E63/64 E90/92/93 E87

  • 2007-2009 second generation E60/63/64/61/89/90/91/92/93/70/71

They do have major difference in lots of aspects, but still its the same unit. 2nd generation Major differences:

  • 2nd generation units have more buttons (6 stations, FM/AM, tracks etc)

  • FASTER CPU is a huge step forward, now they use closed project custom CPU with RAM inboard, looks impressive at least, but if it goes bad, its not easy to find them.

  • Supports newer DVD and CD drive

  • Boots faster

  • Better, nicer interface

  • Overall more reliable

  • Supports a little more RAM

GOOD NEWS WE WERE ABLE TO FIND MAJOR PROBLEMS WITH ALL THESE UNITS AND WERE ABLE TO SUCCESFULLY RECOVER 100+ UNITS STARTING THIS 2017 YEAR ONLY.

ITS NOT A DIY SOLUTION, AND WE USE VERY EXPENSIVE EQUIPMENT TO WORK ON THESE UNITS. SO FAR WE ARE THE ONLY ONES IN USA WHO DO IT RIGHT AND PROVIDE REAL 1 YEAR WARRANTY AND WE DO NOT CHARGE MUCH. THERE IS A SANTA MONICA COMPANY, WHICH OFFERS THESE REPAIRS ALL OVER THE PLACE, BUT I CAN TELL THEY ARE NOT PROFESSIONAL AND OFFER REPAIRS ONLY FOR 2007+ UNITS (it is easier to recover them, but If you don't eliminate design flaw it will for sure happen again soon) AND PROVIDE 3 MONTHS WARRANTY, BECAUSE THEY PROBABLY DON'T KNOW MAJOR ISSUES WITH THEM AND SCARED TO PROVDE WARRANTY. IN FACT WE SENT QUITE A FEW PEOPLE TO THEM BACK IN 2015-2016, BECAUSE WE DIDN'T HAVE ALLTHE EQUIPMENT AND PARTS. FUNNY THING THEY COULD NOT REPAIR EVEN A SINGLE UNIT OFF 2004-2006 BMW!!! UNLIKE OTHERS, WE CAN RECOVER ALMOST EVERY UNIT IF NOBODY TRIED TO FIX IT BEFORE! AND HERE IS WHY IT MAKES SENSE TO GET IT REPAIRED:

  • WE ONLY CHARGE 395$ SHIPPED, 4 TIMES CHEAPER VS DEALER PRICE

  • WE INSTALL NEW PARTS, EVENTHOUGH SOMETIMES YOU CAN REUSE OLD CHIPS

  • WE REALLY LIKE WHAT WE ARE DOING AND WE LOVE ELECTRONICS

  • WE PROVIDE ONE YEAR WARRANTY!

  • WE UPDATE ENTIRE CCC UNIT (4HRS EACH UNIT) WITH LATEST FIRMWARE

  • WE ENCODE YOUR UNIT SO ITS PLUG AND PLAY (AFTRE REPAIR THIS UNIT IS LIKE BRAND NEW AND NEEDS CODING)

  • WE TEST ALL FUNCTIONS DVD, CD, BUTTONS ETC AND LET YOU KNOW IF YOU NEED ADDITIONAL REPAIRS ON THEM. REPAIR PRICE IS ONLY FOR THE MAINBOARD

  • WE ENABLE AUX ON INPUT 2004-2006 E60/63/64 AND WE CAN ALSO INSTALL BLUETOOTH MODULE INSIDE, SO YOU CAN STREAM MUSIC WIRESSLY USING AUX INPUT WITH BT. UNLIKE OTHERS OFFER, THIS BT MODULE WILL SHUTDOWN AFTER MOSTGW WENT TO SLEEP MODE AND IT IS INSIDE SO NO WIRES NO MESS. (160$ FEATURE)

  • MOST LIKELY IT SHOULD LAST LIKE BRAND NEW UNIT, BUT EVEN BMW DEALER SELLS THEM FOR 1200-1500$ INSTALLED AND DON;T FORGET THEY ARE REFURBISHED ONES, NOT NEW.

  • WE PROVIDE SUPPORT ON TROUBESHOOTING AND OTHER THINGS RELATED TO CCC, MOST ISSUES.

  • THERE IS NO MANY PLACES IN USA IF ANY WHO DO THEM RIGHT AND PROVIDE SIMILAR PRICE RANGE.

  • ITS 1000% BETTER THAN USED MODULE FOUND ONLINE OR JUNK YARDS, BECAUSE WE REPAIR COMMON ISSSUES AND PROVIDE WARRANTY, THEN WE CODE THEM TO YOUR CAR AND UPDATE FORMWARE. IF YOU BUY USED MODULE OFF JUNK YARD WITHOUT CODING, IT WILL NOT WORK CORRECTLY AND THROW ERRORS, DEALER CAN CHARGE UP TO 500$ JUST TO CODE IT!!! AND MOST IMPORTANT YOU NEVER KNOW HOW LONG USED MODULE WILL LAST...

  • WE ARE PROFESSIONALS WITH MECHANICAL ENGINEER AND COMPUTER SCIENCE DEGREES, YOU CAN SEE WE DEVELOP CUSTOM CODE AND BUILD OUR UNIQUE MODULES, LIKE REMOTESTART FOR E65/66/RR PHANTOM. NOBODY ELSE INTHE WORLD CAN OFFER ANYTHING LIKE THIS

SO HOW DOES IT WORK???

  • Remove your CCC OR CIC unit, its easy, check pics below, some crazy greedy shops charge 200-300$ just to remove 6 screws.

  • Good idea to remove front plate and rear fan, simply twist it counterclockwise

  • write down your name and phone umber on the unit itself and check if sticker matches your last 7 digits of the VIN, IT IS VERY IMPORTANT STEP, BECA USE WE HAVE TO CODE IT BASED ON THESE NUMBERS!!!!

  • Pack in the box, make sure to protect front face plate (180$ part from BMW)
