You will have to get the security code for that wireless and insert it before the wireless will operate. When you removed the battery the system thought the radio was being stolen and activated the anti-theft system in the radio.

I have a 1995 BMW 525I and battery died and i forgot my radio code


You have to pull the radio and get the serial number. The dealer can look up the code given the radio serial number. If they want to charge you for this service, find another dealer.

Radio won't play


You have had a loss of power to the radio (such as when the car battery is changed), or the radio has been replaced or disconnected from the car's wiring harness. This is a theft deterrent because the stolen radio is useless to someone without the activation code. This code can be obtained from a dealer or it is found on a small plastic card that is part of the original owner's materials. Number is usually 5 digits. When you turn on the radio and the readout says 'CODE ', enter the number by using the numbered station selection buttons (which are numbered 1-2-3-4-5-6). If the radio beeps when you are entering the number, start over. If it keeps beeping, you have the wrong code number (which might be the case if the radio has been replaced). Note: The 'CODE' button located on the small computer face to the right of the radio (with the date, mileage, temperature, etc) has NOTHING to do with the process or the radio 'CODE'.

Need code for radio 95 bmw 525i


If you do not have the code written in your owners manual or on some other piece of material you got with the purchase of your car then the only way to get the code is to remove the radio, check the serial number and call BMW with that serial number. Good luck!
