SOURCE: 1997 bmw 328i radio code

It will be with your owners documentation packet that includes the operating manual on a card in the radio guide booklet ( I just leave one in the glove compartment. The bimmer comes with two plastic cards displaying the radio unlock code for your radio. If you don't have or can't find the code in the radio booklet/packet, then you can get the code with your VIN (vehicle identification number) through a BMW dealership or a BMW Technician with access to the list. There are even Members of BMW forums that will provide your code via the VIN, but either way this will only work for the original radio (hopefully yours hasn't been replaced).
I bought a replacement radio for my 750 and I wrote the code down in several locations and I suggest you do the same when you get yours, as it's no fun guessing at it as you get three tries and have to leave the radio sit without power for over an hour before it will let you enter another code again and there are 1.000 possible codes.
Good luck.

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.

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

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...

SOURCE: 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.

I can not get power on for my 2004 M3 radio.


Does it happen to say "CODE" ? Was battery recently disconnected or go dead? Ot's your theft deterrent radio and needs code to be unlocked. Check owners manual for small credit card size card, that has you code and enter it into your radio. If you don't have code, you're going to have to either have BMW or yourself pull radio and provide BMW the serial # off of radio.

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.

Radio unlock code


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.

Radio no audio 1990 bmw 535i


What happens if you turn the VOLUME to MAXIMUM?

If still no sound , then suspect problem with the speaker , connections or wiring

If loud hissing etc. then speakers appear OK so suspect a radio fault

My radio displays a 4 didit code and wont allow me to do anything its an old land rover dicovery with the original radio!


Hi there,
I think its fairly standard across all Land Rovers. First of all you need a code. This was supplied on a credit card sized piece of card with the original vehicle. I'l assume its not to hand... Typically, you can source the code (which is specific to your serial number / radio) from a supplier such as this on eBay: http://cgi.ebay.com/Landrover-Radio-Code-Decode-Service-4775-Navigation-/380181370976?cmd=ViewItem&pt=UK_Audio_TV_Electronics_In_Car_Entertainment_GPS_In_Car_Audio_Players_PP&hash=item5884935860 Code in hand, you are ready to enter it and unlock the radio. You only actually need numbered button <1> and the two seek buttons that look like <| and >| .
-------------
When you turn the radio on, you should see it request <CODE>

Press preset button <1>. This should identify character 1 of the code.

Use one of the two tuning buttons (Seek up , or seek down - the ones with arrows going into lines) to move to the right number (0-9).

Press preset button <1> again to lock digit 1 and move onto code digit 2.

Repeat twiddling the upseek and downseek. Press button 1 etc .... until all four codes have been entered.

When you press <1> for the final time, if the code is correct, you'll get a two tone beep to confirm and the radio is unlocked.

If incorrect, you are progressively locked out (in doubling time periods).

Hope this helps.

you'll need to take your VIN and the radio serial number (located on the back of the radio) and maybe even one of the master keys to a BMW dealer and they will look it up for you.

Unlock radio code


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!
