A radio code is required to activate the radio on your car after your battery has died or your radio has lost power. If you attempt to enter the wrong code multiple times the system will lock you out for a set amount of time. The code can be retrieved by going to your local dealership where they will remove your radio with a special tool and retrieve the serial number from the back of the radio. This process is fairly quick and does NOT require leaving your car there. Your radio will have to be on for approximately 30 minutes before you can enter the proper code.

I have a 1999 bmw 323I I bought a transmission.thinking that it was the transmission cause it doesnt drive or revorce.they put in the transmission and still doing the same thing.what could it be!!


Could be the shifter cable broken, bad wiring,bad computer, or(If you bought a used on) could be a bad transmission. Unlikely both transmissions would have the exact same problem though.

I had the battery in my 1999 bmw 323i changed. I entered the wrong radio code, and it says"code wait" since yesterday. How do I rest this to enter the code again?


ive had the same problem on my 1998 Bmw 323i when i took my battery cable off what you have to do is leave your key in the ignition position 1 so the radio is on and says code wait. you have to leave the key in the ignition in that position for about 30- 1 hour long then it should reset back to where you enter your radio code. you only have about 3 trys to get the code right then it will say code wait again. you need to find out what your radio code is. my radio code was 46661 but we could have different radios. you can either bring your car to the dealer or just take out your radio and get the serieal number off of it which is what i did and i typed bmw radio code in online hope this helps !!

I have a 1999 323i bmw and the convertable top doesnt work the light is blinking and i dont know how to check if the motors work what wires do i hook it up to and how can i test everything else


i had the same problem with my 1998 bmw 323i and right under the back drivers seat there is an emergency convertible top lever with a orange tip on it. i removed my back seat to make it easier. when you pull that lever, you will hear a bang sound. that is the sound of the motors disengaging.(there are 3 top motors in the trunk by the left side panel when you remove it) you will then have full access of movement to either put the top up or down. But before you do any of this, i Really suggest you watch this youtube video. if this link doesnt work, you can go to youtube.com and type in bmw convertible top motor stuck and click on the first link BMW DIY #3 E36 Top Repair. I suggest watching the whole video first before attempting or if you want, you can have a mechanic do it! hope this helps
