Question about 1992 BMW 5 Series

1 Answer

I am unable to get my BMW BAVARIA C REVERSE RDS radio to operate. While in storage my 1992 520i lost battery power and once it was recharged all systems worked except the radio (the car has been working perfectly except the radio for seven days). The radio worked perfectly when it went into storage. When you apply power, turn the radio button on, the word "code" does not appear. There does not appear to be any power applied to the radio. I have confirmed that the 15 amp fuse is good. Any ideas out there? Chris

    My problem is that the word "code" does not appear. I am unable to apply the code number, which I have.

    There appears to be a power problem. I have checked the fuse box and the fuse for the radio is good.

    oops my bad on the lack of code appearing and no power. I don't know which wire is the power to the radio, brown is always ground though. My guess with other accessories is that it would be black that is carrying the 12v to the radio. unplug and replug the radio connector.

You need to have the anti-theft code put in to make the radio work, this happens when the battery power is lost. Call the dealer or go to www.radio-codes.com

Margaret, this is free public forum , demands don't play here (free)
and you double posted. why do that.? if you wish to elaborate
try posting below 1st post, as an add.
and for better help? why not post to a BMW forum. (faster)
and no car year, posted or car options listed.

Radio year, model and Car Cell phone options.

no matter.......
the first check on all electronics, is the fuse
most radios have 3 power sources, (to make all features work)
and fuses are on all 3.
have you tried all sources, AM/FM CD, MP3 USB (if opted) .
are all modes dead?
the next check is to try all buttons on the radio. ?
is there a mute button? if car has 4 speaker try the fader lever.
front to rear. left to right , still dead.?
cycle modes. radio, cassette, CD 6 pack , what ever, but do cycle them all as older cars the mode switch can stick.

The RDS is radio station text messages. for song titles.
including time, station identification and programme information.
if this part really works, the RDS part this means the radio is working, but the power amp is dead or muted.
try balance and fader.
many radios (1000s) have fuses in the radio for the speaker amp
that can blow. (shorted speaker wires a prime reason)
or some have in line fuse. and others are in the cars fuse box
which varies by maker or model year.

ok , im looking at the stock radio on level C stock 1991 radio
and even back when (stock to me) the is RADIO muting
so if your car has Cell phone muting bingo that.
and a fuse at rear of radio, (unstated purpose)
guessing,id say there is lamp that glows, CELL mute?


conclusion, no car year stated, or year radio of not origional.

My 2001 bmw 325i doesn't have power no light no radio and the interior lights are all off


Sounds like you have a dead battery. Try recharging the battery or get someone with jumper cables to give you a jump. If your battery dies again after driving for at least an hour you likely need a new battery. If the battery in the car is the original, it's time to replace it anyway.

Need master code for radio in a 2000 ml320


Hi,

Regretfully due to reasons of theft or piracy we do not pass the radio codes here at FixYa. If you contact your local Mercedes-Benz dealer they will give you the 5 digit code. (You must have your registration and know the complete serial number of the radio)

Need unlock code for grundig bmw bavaria rds s/n 610016a1380610


As far as I know, you have to go to the dealer so they can see you actually own the vehicle and radio. They will pull the radio out to get the serial number and then enter that into their computer which will spit out the radio code. If they like you, you might not be charged.

PS: Of course you can't just ask for a code on a forum like this. That would invalidate the whole purpose of having codes in the first place! The radio in question might be stolen.
