Did you buy it from a dealer? or off of someone? if you bought it from a dealer, call them and give them the vin, and your name tell them you need the security code for the radio and they will normally give it to you, some might have you come there just so they can make sure it is you and not just someone calling with your info... if you bought it from someone, and have their info to transfer the title, contact them and ask them if they have the code cause normally they will.... if not then do the same as listed in the begining... cause most dealerships will have it on file..... or in the computer system... or have a generic code to get teh radio working....

Had to replace battery now radio is asking for code


The correct radio SERIAL NUMBER is required for a code

First remove the radio from the dashboard.

Removal Info here

www.fitaudio.com

Then post the radio make+model plus all the letters+numbers on any labels,barcodes and a 14 character Serial Number stamped in the metal casing.

This information can then be used to see if a code can be calculated

Just bought 1995 Lexus from someone who was NOT the original owner, they replaced the battery and the radio stopped working..they took to a mechanic and he said the code needed to be reset. How do I find...


First thing to do is look carefully in the owners manual. A good mechanic [or owner] will write the code in either the main manual or the manual for the radio. If there is no code available, go to any Lexus dealer's parts department. Be SURE to bring your auto registration with you [to prove you own the car] The parts guy will be able to look up your radio code using the VIN [vehicle identification number] listed on your registration. Usually, there is no charge for that.
Your owners manual will spell out the procedure for entering the security code [usually 4 or 5 numbers] to get the radio working again.

I disconnected my battery and now the radio will


Call the manufacturer of the stereo (most BMW have Alpine). You may need to remove the faceplate to get the model and serial#'s and will also need your VIN # to confirm the stereo is still with the car. Explain your situation and they should provide you with a code to reset your stereo. Best of luck.

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


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.

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.

BMW Z3 can timeout instr2, instr3 instrument cluster not working


You need to perform a static discharge on the vehicle. Remove both cables from the battery and touch the two cable ends together(you may need a jumper wire) for a few minutes. Reconnect the cables to the battery and check it out.
