    Radio lock out codes are security related to discourage theft, so they are not published on the internet, if they were what would be the point?? any thief could get the code after stealing your radio. Contact the dealer for instructions and what info u need to get your cars unique radio code. How do I know this isn?t a stolen radio? The dealer will require the serial number off the radio and proof of ownership of the car it came from.

This radio can be decoded via radio serial, no need to apply to dealers and supply car VIN numbers and proove ownership, no chip EEPROM readings...

You can order Alpine BMW radio codes online here, codes are calculated from radio serial numbers

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 ANOTHER 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 

If not then 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

You will need to contact your local BMW Dealership to retrieve the Radio Code. This is free as long as you can prove you are the owner of the Vehicle.

I disconnected my battery and now the radio will


Call the manufacturer of the stereo (most BMW have Alpine). You may need to remove the faceplate to get the model and serial#'s and will also need your VIN # to confirm the stereo is still with the car. Explain your situation and they should provide you with a code to reset your stereo. Best of luck.
