This code will only be available from your Main Rover Dealer or using a Radio Decoding Service.

It will NOT be available for free from anywhere on the Internet as it is not in any available Philips database

In need of my acura radio code. Bought my car RSX used. When I had to get my car jumped, the radio went to ''code''. After researching on line, I found out how to get my seriel # and the previous owner...

The dealer can help you. No one here is going to give you a code for a possibly stolen radio and the dealer will not do it over the phone. That is my experience with BMW. They need to make sure you actually own the radio or the whole security scheme is invalid.

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.

Press preset [ 1 ] repeatedly for the first digit

Followed by pressing the ' > ' rocker key.

Code for radio 1995 bmw 5 series

You need to pull the radio out and get the seriel number off of the radio itself. They were not very reliable to begin with and most had been replaced over the years under warranty. That's why you pull the number from the radio and not the car. You can then take proof of car ownership (insurance card, title, etc) to your local dealer and they can get it for you.

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>

Hope this helps.

If my answer has helped you, please rayte me on Fixya.

Many Thanks
