You can contact your dealer and give them the serial number to the stereo and they will give you a code to unlock the player.

When you take power away from this equipment it activates the anti-theft "feature". To get them back working you need to enter a security code. Your user manual will include the procedure for this. If you don't have any paperwork with the code then you'll have to call the dealer or BMW and they can look it up for you.

By removing the battery, you have triggered the radio security system. You or someone must have entered a security theft code into the radio at some point. If you know what the code is, use your owners manual to unlock the security feature. If you do not know what the code is, go to your local dealer and they can unlock it for you using a factory generic security code.
Good luck, let me know.
Regards,

2001 BMW X5 radio works intermittently


Most sat nav/radio issues are caused by a flat battery! The most simple solution to try is th switch the vehicle off, go to the fuse box on the right hand panel of the boot (as your facing boot) remove fuse 24 (5 amp) for 5 minutes then replace and start vehicle as normal! This will reset the nav/stereo system! Rich B

My radio stopped working on my e46


Just reset the power and programming to it to fix the issue. Remove the red lead from your battery then reinstall it a few seconds later. You will notice that the radio works again! If not, your radio fuse is blown.
