Question about 2001 BMW Z3

I have a 2001 BMW Z3. The battery went dead last

I have a 2001 BMW Z3. The battery went dead last winter so I charged it up. Didn't drive it so it went dead again. Now the radio doesn't work. i have the correct radio code, but the radio won't even come on to ask for the code. I thought maybe I blew a fuse. Does anyone know where the fuse box is for the radio? Or does anyone have a better solution?

Most new BMW's the fuse block is located behind the glove box. There should be a pair of twist plastic fastners at the back of the glove box, twist and remove the plate and you should find the fuse box and fuse locater list.

I have a 2000 BMW Z3 that has sat for about a year. I started it periodically and it always started right up. I went to start it one time and the battery was dead. I charged the battery and tried again....

I think that if the battery went completely flat the vehicle may have lost the security code, or the same can have happened if you did not follow the boost charge instructions when starting. If that has happened you'll need to have the unit re-encoded by a dealer. Keep in mind that starting a vehicle periodically is good but if you don't run it as well the battery will become exhausted and finally fail. The start up of any engine drains more power from the battery than any other operation. You need to start it and give it a run.

    Positive battery cable

    You must make sure the connection is clean and tight. Chip away any corrosion, which can sometimes be hard and crusty. Make sure the cable is not frayed or a significant amount of individual strands of copper broken at the terminal connector.

    Make sure your alternator is working and you are not running your car on the battery. Measure the voltage while the car is running, it should be around 14 volts.
