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.

The problem is that your roof(SOFT TOP) lid isnt closing properly. If you open the roof lid you see there is a button on one of the latches that tells the car that the roof is securely closed if your roof lid is not secure the trunk wont open. To test this press down on the roof lid and the try to open the trunk.

Starter - Removal & Installation

The starter motor on some models is very difficult to see from the top of engine compartment as it is covered by the intake manifold. On these models, without removing the intake manifold, the starter motor must be removed from underneath the vehicle. Because the starter motor mounting bolts are not easy to access, a long extension with a universal joint mounted on a proper sized socket could be used. A three foot transmission extension is commercially available from tool vendors that has a 3 / 8 inch drive of the driven end and 1 / 2 inch drive on the drive end. If used with a non-binding impact universal joint and a proper fitting impact socket, the starter motor fasteners can be removed from underneath the vehicle.
Once the starter motor fasteners are removed, the starter motor may have to be moved side-to-side several times to loosen the dowel pin if it has corroded in place.

NOTE When the battery is disconnected, the radio code, on-board computer and clock settings will be lost. The radio code should be obtained before disconnecting the battery or radio. Once the battery has been reconnected, the radio will not function unless the code is keyed in.
Starter motor electrical terminal fastener torque specifications for all models:
M5 terminal fasteners: 44 inch lbs. (5 Nm)
M6 terminal fasteners: 53 inch lbs. (6 Nm)
M8 terminal fasteners: 115 inch lbs. (13 Nm)

Hex head bolts: 36 ft. lbs. (49 Nm)

  10. Remove the starter motor mounting fasteners at the transmission bell housing, then remove the two mounting nuts at the L-shaped mounting bracket.

SOURCE: How do you reset the motor and anything else?I

Happens alot. If you or someone pulls the interesting red strap under the rear seat, you have to do a reset. You have a small shot at just re-engaging the motors but will probably have to do a full reset. Take the back seat out and push lever back into the correct position. If you have a semi auto top (have to manually unlock top where it meets the windshield), lift the top back until you can pull up the back of the top to access tonnau cover. If it is a fully auto top, you have to pull out the cover at the very front of the headliner to access manual crank port. There should be a small allen wrench in the trunk tool box. You have to crank and crank and crank until the top is slightly open. You can then lift the back of the top to access tonneau cover. Both top types are the same from here on. Lift up on the tonneau cover and stow the top. Have a friend (or a heavy tool box) push down on the front part of the cover on the passenger side. You will hear a click. This will allow you to open the trunk. There are two motors located in the driver side rear quarter panel. You have to take out the covers hiding them. One motor is sort of in a horizontal placement under the pan where the top is stowed. Push up on this to re-engage. Other motor is in a vertivle orientation and at the driver side rear quater panel. You have to sort of grab the motor with both hands and pull it back into engangement with a gripping motion. Close the trunk. Push the switch to close the top (forward) and hold it down. Insert the key and turn it two clicks (accessory). After about 10 - 15 seconds you will hear the tonneau cover close and then open and the top closes. Let it cycle through and you are done. Hope that helps!

1997 bmw 328i dash lights all lit up at once and after several minutes they faded, and eventually the headlights and dashboard lights dimmed.


Alternator. Have it tested with a voltmeter while on the car and running. Or take it off and have it tested. The current to run the car and the accessories is from the alternator when the engine is running. The battery light coming on alerts you that the alternator is not doing its job.

MIL light not operating a 1997 BMW 328i.


you will need to get it hooked up to a OBD code reader to see what is going on, if no faults show then it sounds like the MIL has blown or been disabled , it has been known that some have been known to drill a fine hole in the dash to bust the bulb to hide a fault, if no fault the the bulb had gone which means a new dash on most cars as the bulb is mounted in the curcuit of the dash panel, you can get a obdcode reader form ebay for a few dollars, make sure it reads BMW , easy to use and reads the VIN numbers to make sure car is the one it it ment to be

I have a 1997 BMW 328i sedan. I replaced everything in the A/C from the firewall forward. The upper vents in the car blow cold, 45 degrees in the vent. However, I am getting hot air coming out from under...


There's nothing special from BMW it will be one of the airtake valves not shut properly, or stuck in open position. Follow the hot air and try to access the source to identify the actual problem

If you'll need something more detai, just drop me a line

Good luck

If you're talking about the Anti-Theft Security code for your radio, I'm fairly sure that only a BMW Dealership would be able to retrieve and reset the radio.

You could also try disconnecting the battery terminals for 10-20 minutes, and see if it resets.
