1999 BMW Z3 radio code

I removed my battery and when I replaced it the radio was locked. I got a code from the dealer but I can't get it to work..neither can the dealer.
My car came from the US. Would the dealer there have a different code than here in Canada?
What else can I try?

I have same problem need to get the serial number off of the back of the radio and the vin# and give that info to the dealer and he will have the code. If code still does not work ask for a different code since they installed radios from different manufacturers.

SOURCE: BMW Z3 WRONG UNLOCK RADIO CODE HOW TO GET THE RIGHT ONE

If the radio is displaying code wait, or wait, then the ignition and radio must remain on for 1hour. I would contact a dealer within the USA and provide them with your radio serial number. The serial number can be displayed in the radio by pressing and holding down the "M" button while turning on the ignition.

Yes. If it was bought in the US, it was coded for the US, so have a US dealer provide the code.

Had to replace battery now radio is asking for code


The correct radio SERIAL NUMBER is required for a code

First remove the radio from the dashboard.

Removal Info here

www.fitaudio.com

Then post the radio make+model plus all the letters+numbers on any labels,barcodes and a 14 character Serial Number stamped in the metal casing.

This information can then be used to see if a code can be calculated

Getting the code to unlock the radio requires access to the factory data base, that is restricted and we do not have permission. You will need to contact the dealer for help with this. The original owner was given this code.

I had the battery in my 1999 bmw 323i changed. I entered the wrong radio code, and it says"code wait" since yesterday. How do I rest this to enter the code again?


ive had the same problem on my 1998 Bmw 323i when i took my battery cable off what you have to do is leave your key in the ignition position 1 so the radio is on and says code wait. you have to leave the key in the ignition in that position for about 30- 1 hour long then it should reset back to where you enter your radio code. you only have about 3 trys to get the code right then it will say code wait again. you need to find out what your radio code is. my radio code was 46661 but we could have different radios. you can either bring your car to the dealer or just take out your radio and get the serieal number off of it which is what i did and i typed bmw radio code in online hope this helps !!

I just purchased a 1996 BMW Z3 Roadster for my wife for our anniversary. The radio is locked, I have gone to the local BMW dealer now three times and they still can not help me. The original radio unlock...


Normally the dealer just needs to know the serial and it will give you the code in less than a minute. If the code they gave you doesn't work then the radio unit  has been modified and the only ones that know what was modified  are the ones that did it.
Just bite the bullet and get a new radio - one with an iPod hookup , your wife will appreciate that.

I disconnected my battery and now the radio will


Call the manufacturer of the stereo (most BMW have Alpine). You may need to remove the faceplate to get the model and serial#'s and will also need your VIN # to confirm the stereo is still with the car. Explain your situation and they should provide you with a code to reset your stereo. Best of luck.
