Hello There

That normally happens when you enter the wrong code too many times. when you get the wait on the screen, that normally means you need to wait for a certain amout of time with the radio turned on and then it will come up asking for a code, each time you enter the wrong code after this will mean longer and longer wait times.


Hope this helps.

If my answer has helped you, please rayte me on Fixya.

BMW 325 i 1999 ''code wait'' in the radio


It normally says CODEWAIT because wrong codes have been entered previously.

The usual solution is to LEAVE SWITCHED ON....UNDISTURBED for as long as it takes to automatically reset itself.

This can sometimes be many hours as the waiting time doubles after each wrong code.However, normally , it is only an hour or two.

My battery died in my 735i, 1988 bmw. my radio stopped working. it shows 'code' on the radio. my code is 1545. i input it but nothing happens. what is the correct sequence to get it working?


If the wrong code was entered too many times the system locks itself out and you must wait approximately 30 minutes before you attempt to input the code. It is important that in this time that the radio is on, and that you don't attempt to enter the code. If this doesn't work I would verify that you actually have the correct code. The code is not written anywhere on the radio as it comes from the factory, however there is a serial number on the back of the radio that allows the dealership to retrieve it easily.

I need the code for my bmw 318 1996 radio model bmw business rds philips, of serial no PH7850V1179563


Call BMW they have the code. Supply them with the serial number.

Don't enter the code until it is the correct one.

Enter the wrong code and you have to wait 1.5 hrs with the key on acc to try again.

What is the stereo code for a BMW 325i '94? someone help plzzzz


pull the radio, write down the serial #, call BMW and it will be a 4 digit code.

Dont enter the wrong one....you will then have to wait 1.5 hrs with the key on ACC and radio hooked up for the wrong code to clear to be able to enter in the correct code.

They figure radio thieves just dont have 1.5 hrs to hang around.

Input radio code into BMW 318i E30


Take the radio out. copy down the serial number. Call bmw dealer and they will give you the code.

If you've tried to enter the code once,and put in the wrong code there is a 90 minute to 3 hour wait to try again. the key has to be on Accessory for this amount of time to enter it in again.

It is a 4 digit code. after you see the display of the radio readout "code" enter the 4 numbers in and bingo...........tunes again.

I pressed the wrong code for my radio (business cd radio)


1. You have to have the code for the radio which varies by serial # of BMW. I got this code by calling my BMW dealer here in town. They were very nice and gave it to me for free.

2. When you enter the code wrong 3 times (I think) the radio goes into "sleep mode" for 2 or 3 hours of operation. In this sleep mode the radio will not let you enter the code from 1 above.

3. After waiting just enter the code and all will be well.

I have an early e46 with the cassette player in the front and the cd changer in the boot. Can I swap the head unit for one with a cd player in it, and do I need anything else ? Thanks


You can replace the old radio and cassette player with a new modern aftermarket dvd player gps navigation unit like this.
Car DVD BMW E46 Navigation System E46 DVD GPS Navi

It's with more features except navigation system, USB, iPod, AUX, SD, DVD player, rear view camera video input, and it's touch screen, easy operation.

Mk4 head unit not working


Hello There.

Thats an interesting one. My first suggestion would be to look at the DVD navigation unit in the trunk, does it have any sign of life, i.e will it eject the map dvd is there a blinking redlight etc, if there is nothing then thats most likely your problem if there life in it then I would suggest having a closer look at all the connections in the trunk. You need to remove the side cover in the trunk and check the connections.
If the above doesn't help, my guess would be your head unit has the fault.
The cheapest way to get this repaired is by process of elimination. If you think the DVD unit in the trunk is faulty I would buy one from ebay if you find this doesn't solve your problem you can always resell it on ebay without losing money and the same with your head unit.
Hope this helps. Good Luck.

If my answer has helped you, please rate me on Fixya.

Many Thanks.
