I have bmw 525i 1989 Model I lost the manual and i can't open my Radio and so i need the Radio Code for my bmw car Please help me could someone gave the code or where it will be downloaded in internet?

If this is the origianal radio that came with the car, go to your local BMW dealer with proof of ownership and they will help you for a small fee. You can also go on line and with the details of the radio make and serial number taken of the lable on the radio, the same info can be obtained again for a small fee. Type in "car radio security code" in your search engine. Personally I would go to your dealer.

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.

I have a 1988 735i I had gotten the code from a dealer but it still wont unlock the radio . I need help please . Ft Worth

If the radio displays code or wait, then you have to make sure the ignition stays on for 1 hour before trying to enter the code. It is also possible the dealer gave you the wrong code. BMW had 3 different makers of radios back then. Blaupunkt, Pioneer, and Alpine. Make sure they checked which maker of your radio was.

Radio code for 1992 bmw 325is

I have a 1987 BMW 325iC. The radio code was in a radio manual. It says right in the manual that if you don't write the code down, the radio is worthless without it. My battery died and I had to put the code into the radio. It started working again. That is why I wrote the code down everywhere I could think. I am going to engrave it into the front of the radio.
If you don't have the 5 digit number anywhere around the car, or in it's paperwork, you are SOL!
