Hello there,

You should be able to find the radio code in the manual and enter into the radio... It's a little blue and white card.

If your manual does not have this information / card you will have to contact the deal to get it resolved. They can check with the factory based on your VIN number and get the radio code. This is a security feature on the radio that usually ends up causing more problems then it solves.

Thanks for your time, sorry to hear about your troubles.

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

1998 bmw z3...put a new battery in..asked for code..managed to obtain code but cant turn the volume up..seems muted yet shows the radio stations (display is very faint)


I hate to say this, but I doubt the radio or battery has much to do with it.
This is just a wild guess, but I would suggest you get a voltmeter and check the alternator output.
It should be 12.5 at idle, but over 13.5 when reved up.
If the radio is weak output, it seems to me it is getting less then 12 volts input, or else it had blown internals.
Another possibility is that a door speaker wire may be shorting and draining radio power.
Hard to guess.

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.

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..
