You must unplug the wiring harness from the back of the radio, wait an hour, and plug it back in

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.

RDS reception with BMW Business radio


Well i remember the M25 being built so i wouldnt know about radio reception ,but i do remember radio london and caroline.Now i would imagine that this sort of auto reset of tuning reception is controled by a micro chip and this chip is now not working as it should so if you want it to work then its most likely cheaper to install a new radio.Or just use long wave for radio 4.

I need the code for my bmw 318 1996 radio model bmw business rds philips, of serial no PH7850V1179563


Call BMW they have the code. Supply them with the serial number.

Don't enter the code until it is the correct one.

Enter the wrong code and you have to wait 1.5 hrs with the key on acc to try again.

Bmw z3 1999 how to enter my code


Enter the 5-digit Radio Code using the radios station preset buttons. After entering the fifth digit press the > button and the radio will activate. Any presets you had before the power loss will return. Apparently a capacitor in the radio holds that information

Hello There.

The wait means you need to wait with the radio on for a certain amount of time, depending on how many times the wrong code was entered.

To get your unlocking code there are many websites that offer an unlocking service for a few £/$ . here is one that I found>
