That is common among most car lines. The code should be in your owners packet, if it is not there, you may have to call the dealership with your VIN number to get the code.

Bmw 735 li e65 change battery and i get many problem no value to set clock radio not working cd also i disconnect the battery still the same problem


When you disconnect your battery and then reconnect it again, it disables the radio. This is an anti-theft protection for your car radio.
The enable your radio the activation code is in your vehicle owner's manual. If you do not have this code you need to go to your BMW service centre and get them to enter this code for you.

I just bought 5401 bmw 1995,the radio is showing code which i don't know and the manual did not come with it


That means that the battery has been disconnected. You will need to pull the radio out of the dash far enough to read the serial number. Then ask a service writer at the dealer to look up the code to unlock the radio. You punch in the code using the number buttons on the radio.

Check Engine light on 1998 BMW Z3 roadster


yes the light is because of the gas cap being gone (sets code in evaporative emissions system), replace the gas cap, disconnect the battery for five minutes and that will turn of/reset the light, make sure u have the radio code before u do this, if u don't u will have no radio after the battery is disconnected..

Code for head unit


Hello There

That normally happens when you enter the wrong code too many times. when you get the wait on the screen, that normally means you need to wait for a certain amout of time with the radio turned on and then it will come up asking for a code, each time you enter the wrong code after this will mean longer and longer wait times.


Hope this helps.

If my answer has helped you, please rayte me on Fixya.

Many Thanks

Need code for radio 95 bmw 525i


If you do not have the code written in your owners manual or on some other piece of material you got with the purchase of your car then the only way to get the code is to remove the radio, check the serial number and call BMW with that serial number. Good luck!

There is a code consisting of four (4) characters that you may have to check in the radio manual of your car or, bring your car to the nearest BMW dealer and they shall help you, as far as I know you may just bring the immobilized car key then they can find the radio code for you in their database (provided the radio has never been changed)...
