Question about 2001 BMW Z3

1 Answer

I disconnected my battery and now the radio will

I replaced the battery in my 1999 Z3 and now the radio will not accept the radio code. I couldn't find the code and the one I am using was provided by my dealer. The dealer's only fix is to remove the radio, send it out for repair and charge me $400.

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.

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

How to reset brake light after changing pads.


Hi Peters6709,
Sorry to tell you, but you need to replace the pad-wear sensors as well. They are the little trapezoid pieces that hang inside the tops of the inside pads. They should run about $10 each. Once replaced, disconnect the battery completely for about 10 minutes, if you have a stock radio keep the code handy.

Next time check the pads every 10-12K miles. I have been running the SAME pad wear sensors on my Z3 for the past 2 pad changes now after making the same mistake the first time.

Best of luck!

Check Engine light on 1998 BMW Z3 roadster


yes the light is because of the gas cap being gone (sets code in evaporative emissions system), replace the gas cap, disconnect the battery for five minutes and that will turn of/reset the light, make sure u have the radio code before u do this, if u don't u will have no radio after the battery is disconnected..

Bmw z3 1999 how to enter my code


Enter the 5-digit Radio Code using the radios station preset buttons. After entering the fifth digit press the > button and the radio will activate. Any presets you had before the power loss will return. Apparently a capacitor in the radio holds that information
