You must leave the key in the ignition for one hour before the CODE WAIT is replaced with CODE... then enter the correct code and you are away.

Inputted incorrect radio code and now the digital display says code waiting. I now have the correct radio code - now what do I do?


may have to power it down---such as remove all power from the radio, wait a while and try again. If that doesn't work, I've heard that you have to wait up to six hours with the power ON and then retry. On the 318i the wait is about 90 min.

Replaced the battery in my 2001 BMW Z3 and radio won't allow me to enter the four digit code to reactivate it. Just keeps showing "code wait". Any ideas?


You entered the wrong code and there is a limit to the number of tries. I believe you must wait an hour for your next attempt.

I pressed the wrong code for my radio (business cd radio)


1. You have to have the code for the radio which varies by serial # of BMW. I got this code by calling my BMW dealer here in town. They were very nice and gave it to me for free.

2. When you enter the code wrong 3 times (I think) the radio goes into "sleep mode" for 2 or 3 hours of operation. In this sleep mode the radio will not let you enter the code from 1 above.

3. After waiting just enter the code and all will be well.

I have a 2001 BMW Z3. The battery went dead last


most new BMW's the fuse block is located behind the glove box. There should be a pair of twist plastic fastners at the back of the glove box, twist and remove the plate and you should find the fuse box and fuse locater list.

BMW Z3 WRONG UNLOCK RADIO CODE HOW TO GET THE RIGHT ONE


If the radio is displaying code wait, or wait, then the ignition and radio must remain on for 1hour. I would contact a dealer within the USA and provide them with your radio serial number. The serial number can be displayed in the radio by pressing and holding down the "M" button while turning on the ignition.

Yes. If it was bought in the US, it was coded for the US, so have a US dealer provide the code.
