To find the code you have to go back to where you bought the car, Bmw dealership or a autoshop. I went to a autoshop and got mine after my battery died. Some may charge some me not.

YOu have a blown fuse. The OEM radio has an error code and basic power supply that gives you an error response. Check your fuses and make sure that the main fuses and fuses for the radio and console unit are good. If it's an aftermarket unit it may be a bad cmos battery that needs to be replaced.

What is procedure to reset radio after new battery has been fitted to BMW 318i 2004 mod

When you turn on your CAR, the radio will say CODE... Enter your 4 digit number and your radio will start working.

If you do not have the Code, look in your Owners Manual for the Card.

If the Card is not there, slide the Radio out and get the Serial Number and call the BMW Dealership for the Code..

Reset car radio in BMW 318i

you will have to take the car to the dealer. upon showing proof of ownership they can retrieve the code. if you know the dealer that sold the car new they may have it on file. if not they will have to remove the radio and use the serial number off it to go onto their computer database to get it. I think its really silly to have security codes on factory radios.
