Hello!
To unlock the radio you will need to inform your local B.M.W. Agent/Dealer of the Registration details i.e. V.I.N./Chassis number ownership Log Book/Title they will be able to supply you with the necessary code for your radio to work. Have you looked through the booklets/service history if available in the Glove box maybe written down there?
Good Luck!

What is the unlock code for a 1996 BMW 328i radio


If you cannot find the code written on something in the glove box, you will have to remove the radio. Once removed, you will need the serial number off of the radio chassis. You can call BMW with this number and they will give you the code.

Hope this helps!

see this technique and fix it. God bless you
Instructions
  1. With the Unlock Code
    • 1 Locate the anti-theft/unlock code. Most cars have a special anti-theft radio card that is included with the owners manual packet containing the unlock code and serial number. Some cars also have the code in the car manual or inside the glove compartment. You will need this code in order to unlock your car radio.
    • 2 Turn the car's ignition switch to the "on" position. This turns on your car's electrical system and powers up the radio. The word "CODE" will display on the screen. Note: depending on the manufacturer some radios will display either "ENTER" or "LOC" on the screen instead.


    • 3 Enter the anti-theft/unlock radio code. Press the "Tune" button on your stereo. It will change the screen from "CODE" to blank. Press the button to scroll through the available numbers. When you reach the correct number press the button once and hold it down for a few seconds. The number will appear on the display and you can now repeat the process to input the second number, third number etc., until all of the numbers are in. If you entered the code correctly the car stereo will unlock and instantly become functional. Depending on your car manufacturer, if you enter the code incorrectly you will not be able to re-enter it again from 1 to 24 hours.
    Without the Unlock Code
    • 4 Call your car manufacturer directly. Your car manufacturer's phone number is in your owner's manual. Ask to be connected to the support department. Tell them you need to reactivate you car stereo and you will be asked for proof of ownership. They will need your car's VIN number, the account number from your bill of sale and a form of personally identifiable information like your driver's license. You may need to fax this information. Once everything checks out the manufacturer will give you the code.
    • 5 Enter the code and unlock your stereo. Use the code you received from the manufacturer to unlock and and activate your car stereo.
    • 6 Go to a car dealership. Take your car to its manufacturer dealership to get the stereo unlocked. For example, if your car is a Honda go to a Honda dealership. Once you have proven that you are the owner of the car, the dealership will be able to retrieve the code from the manufacturer and activate the radio for you.

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.

Dear Madam or Sir,

the unlock code can only be recovered by the BMW Dealer, it´s saved in the BMW databases. The dealer only needs to know the vehicle identification number of your car.

I have a 1994 BMW I havethe code for the radio but I can't unlock


I recently had my starter motor replaced. When I got in to drive my car the radio was showing "CODE" I have the code for my radio serial number (if you don't then you will need to get the serial number from the back of your radio unit and call your local BMW dealer, they have a database that they can look up for the correct code). Nothing was working and the unit kept beeping at me! I was trying everything and nothing was working. I since found out that the unit had "locked" me out! I rang the dealership, they said to leave the car in ignition with the radio on for exactly 1 hour (this resets it) then put in the code. Voila! It worked!

I need the unlock code to the radio.


Find the 5 digit radio code or remove the radio to get the serial number. A Honda dealership can get you the code if you have the serial number.Or they can get both.

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.
