Question about 1994 BMW 3 Series
All of a sudden the radio stopped working! does not power although it reflects the bluetooth phone book even though bluetooth does not work either! Is it locked or something is wrong with the radio?

You are smelling burning antifreeze. likely a head gasket but only testing will determine that for sure...Do not drive it. get it to a shop or more damage is likely.

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.

Go back to the dealer that told you the wrong number ! I have one and I am currently living in the Middle East but the car was brought from Europe... they have access and can track it down... Tell them that is the wrong code and not acceptable service...I asked to speak to a service mgr and they got it to me.. are you going to have your car serviced there ?? That's the point of paying for dealership service... so they can supply GOOD service and getting you the proper code counts...

if the problem is with the knob being lose inside the radio, it can be repaired. I have been able to successfully repair every one that came into my dealership. most dealers will not attempt a repair. another alternative is to call a reputable audio installer/retailer and see if they will repair it.

In first instance try to disconnect the unit from the mains and reconnect 15-20secs later 8 times out of 10 it helps. otherwise you might need to reprogram the unit processor which is more complicated and requires knowledge and understanding of electronic principles, assembler, also some devices to perform the task.
Otherwise I'm not sure about exact model of your ECU (computer) but in some cases it also gives the access to reprogrammable radio unit, so in this case laptop, one simple program (u can find it as free downloadable .exe file) and special diagnostics cable wuold sort everything out. But as I said not all ECUs offers such an option. And if you'll go for this step you need some knowledge about electronics and soldering as you'll have to build the cable I mentioned, as tu purchase one would be quite painfull for your vallet.
Hope it helped although if you need any further information just drop a line here.
