Look in the handbook for the radio,it should tell you how to put the code in.most radios accept the code via the preset tuning buttons,ie first number is number one and so on then press number five to lock it in ,but some radios you press number one for first nunber then when its entered via tuner up and down press one again and enter second number.then am/fm button to lock but some use the tape player play knob ,really is confusing trust me on this .Change a customers battery and then find they dont have code number,also often happens is that change battery and dammed factory immobiliser cuts in...Who would be a mechanic?? any rich widows out their ??

The 95 BMW 525i I bought has a code problem everytime I turn my radio on. The Battery was disconnected when the dude quit driving it for a month or so.


These older BMW radios may use a different type of code system and will require further advice.

My car radio does not turn on after changing battery


Does it require a code?

If you do not have it then read below

=================================================

First make sure that the code has not been noted somewhere within the car (underneath the ash tray, glove box , rear of sun visor etc)
 
 
To see if your code is available here  for free then the radio will have to be removed from the dashboard (and if you are lucky, someone may have written the code on the casing ) .
 
If not then POST A NEW  QUESTION
 
quoting the radio MAKE+MODEL plus ALL the LETTERS+NUMBERS on ANY LABELS ,BARCODES or STAMPED IN THE METAL CASING
 
Also quote the MAKE of CAR
 
note: Unfortunately not all radios can be decoded using the Serial Number
 
Otherwise try your Main Dealer ...........or take it into a Decode Service who will plug in a laptop to read/recode the memory chip (EEPROM). This takes a few minutes and shouldn`t be too expensive

If you require your code to be checked then the radio will have to be removed from the car in order to find the SERIAL NUMBER, usually found on a label on the casing....and it should begin with M****** or V or L or C
Then POST A NEW QUESTION 

quoting this Serial Number and your code will be calculated for you.

==============================================

Here is a video showing how to remove your radio from the dashboard. A pair of extractors are required (available from Ebay , Halfords ) but these can be made from 2 pieces of bent, wire coat-hanger or 4 small drills(using the blunt end) or 4 small Allen Keys or 4 small screwdrivers or 4 nails or even 4 darts.

An assistant is useful to pull the radio out whilst you are releasing the 4 securing clips
