Question about 1997 BMW 328
Just recently acquired a BMW. It's a 1997 328i and I LOVE IT Problem is that the radio isn't working. I did some research and found out that I need a radio code to enter into the radio so I called BMW got got a code from them. Now whenever I turn the car on, everything is brightly lit but the radio screen has "Phone" in a very dimmed light. I read that I need to be in radio mode in order to insert the code but I can't get into radio mode or whatnot. It always has the word "Phone" in a very dim tone and I can't change it. Any ideas?

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.

yep just ring or pop into any bmw dealer with the full chassis/vin number & if the car is in your name they should be able to give to you.

Take your radio out (Using an Allen wrench) there are 2 little doors on either side of your radio. Back out the recessed allen head screws till it stops and withdraw the radio out. Disconnect the radio wiring(no need to worry they only fit one way) take the radio to the dealer with your Reg. or title and ask the service advisor for the code. (they might try to charge you for the code. But just complain and say" that you have had many bmw and you've been comming to the dealer for parts for years now and it that how you treat me"!) that should get you the code (If you are a woman then wear something tight & Skimpy) same effect. put the radio back in and input the code...
You should be good to go.
