actually your radio has an antitheft system to prevent thefts to use it, but most of the times the previous owner will know the code or he might wrote it down at the owners manual,
or you can try to contact the dealer some times they will be nice and just give you the code, but you nned to be ready with the vin number of the car, and the serial number on the radio in order to get the code from the dealer, but if you have a friend or relative with auto repair, they wiil call the dealer, in most cases they have very good erlation with auto dealer.

yep just ring or pop into any bmw dealer with the full chassis/vin number & if the car is in your name they should be able to give to you.

You might want to suspect a stereo amplifier. Does your car have DSP? In any case, look in the trunk on the left hand side. You will find your radio amplifier back there. It will have about a 3in connector with a bunch of twisted pair wiring. Remove the connector and make sure there is no water contamination. All sound processing takes place in the amp.

I had the same problem. disconnect the battery cables. then reconnect them. this will reset the cd player and it should relaese all your cd player problems.
this happened twice to me and the above worked fine both times.

There is a panel on the passengers side of the car, I pulled the fuse used for OnStar because I dont use it. I didn see any labling on mine but it was the fuse located second from the top on the left side, but you have to be looking at it side ways because of the way the fuse box is orientated.
And then put it in the socket all the way to the right second from the bottom, again looking at it sideways. NOTE: My car is a 2006 Malibu LT
