If it is a stock radio then it may be from a different car. You will need to take the radio out or take the car to the dealer to get the code. I would just go and buy a new one and upgrade to a CD with MP3 capabilities. BMW troubleshooting fees are generally $60. Buy a new one.

Changed the battery. Type:Blaupunkt 520 No.92057951 U1E Bp8385#1712802

Good afternoon Nicole.

You don't have a specific question posted, but from the context, I'll guess that you changed your car battery and now your Blaupunkt stereo won't turn on and needs a code entered. You can look at a forum discussion here ( ) that will step you through how to enter the code. This assumes you have the code card that should have come with the stereo (or the car if it's original to the car). Also note when the instructions talk about pressing the buttons, that it seems like it's pressing the button one more time than the number you want. That's because the first number to come up is Zero, so a 'One' will need two pushes on the button to toggle 'Zero' and then 'One' (I had the same setup in a stereo for my old Saab.)

If you don't have the card, don't just type in numbers at random. These stereos will lock you out after a certain number of failed attempts, and go into really long lockdowns if you wait out the first period. This will mean going to a dealer, where, likely as not, they'll hem and haw about how it's not working for them either, and you'll need to buy a replacement Blaupunkt.

Hope this helps, and good luck. If it does help, tagging the post as helpful would also be appreciated :-)

Hi I've lost the code for my blaupunkt cd player

The GM dealer will calculate the code for you in two ticks. If it's aftermarket take it to a Blaupunkt dealer.

I need radio code for blaupunkt

I have this decode sodtware I perchased for my business but have never used it for the Blaupunkt radio so am not sure if I did it correct. It ask me to enter a 10 digit serial and the only number you had with 10 was the one starting with "76" so I used that one. It gave me a code of 3501 and it also had the option that if the code had to start with a 1 or 0 it gave me a code of 1501. This software has yet to fail me on Ford radio's and I hope it works for you.....Curious so leave a comment and let me know. Also if there are other 10 digit numbers and the code didn't, I'll try any other numbers. This was also just for a standard Blaupunkt or for a BMW. It did have other options for other vehicles.

Send m please code no car,chevrolet,blaupunkt no.92114184,23.8.2003

Blaupunkt most of the time unless it is a very new model only has 10 digits in the serial number. In the software I use for getting codes I used the first 10 (didn't use th 8 2003) and it gave me a code of 7801. This software is not full proof but has gotten me out of a few jams. I hope it helps you. It's worth a try anyway....Good luck.

I have a 1988 735i I had gotten the code from a dealer but it still wont unlock the radio . I need help please . Ft Worth

If the radio displays code or wait, then you have to make sure the ignition stays on for 1 hour before trying to enter the code. It is also possible the dealer gave you the wrong code. BMW had 3 different makers of radios back then. Blaupunkt, Pioneer, and Alpine. Make sure they checked which maker of your radio was.
