    I called the 800 BM number as you suggested and the girl took all my information and finally said, she did not have the code numbers to give to me and suggested I call my local BMW dealer and/or take the car to them to correct the problem. The closest dealer is 40--50 miles in either direction. surely someone can tell me which numbers i need to submit in order to obtain the code numbers. Which are 5 digits. .Dealers will not talk to you unless you make an appt. and expect to pay big $$$

Hi, you will need both the vin and serial number of the radio t get the code, Write them down.

Locate your VIN number at the base of the front window, driver side. If you can't read your VIN off the window, you will have it on your proof of insurance and title as well. Write it down.
Locate your manufacture's toll free Customer Service number and call them. I called Mitsubishi at 1-888-MITSU2009 to get my code and they were very helpful and easy to work with. Some other manufacture's 800 numbers include:
Acura 1-800-382-2238, Audi 1-800-367-2837, BMW 1-800-831-1117, GMC 1-800-462-8782, Honda 1-800-999-1009, Isuzu 1-800-255-6727, Mazda 1-800-222-5500, Nissan 1-800-647-7263, Saab 1-800-582-7222, Saturn 1-800-553-6000, Toyota 1-800-311-4331, Volvo 1-800-458-1552.

Hello
At Fixya.com we have no access to the secure data base at the BMW owner data storage server to supply the radio security code. Your radio's security code is stored in a factory data base and is unique to the VIN of the car and radio serial number, you can either ask the local BMW dealer to look the code up for you on the factory conmputer link that all BMW dealers have or you can use one of the on-line services such as the one below, before you pay for the service on-line call your local dealer and ask if they will look up the radio code for you free of charge. One last note, if you are the original owner of the car you were given this radio security code with the new car paperwork, it wouild have been on a small card like a credit card.
Here is one of the on-line radio code suppliers that claim they can get your radio security code for you.

    As you most likely found out the dealer was the only one that could help get the code, we told you right away. I think the ratings you gave were based on an emotional response not the facts of the problem. Thanks

Getting the code to unlock the radio requires access to the factory data base, that is restricted and we do not have permission. You will need to contact the dealer for help with this. The original owner was given this code.

Replaced the battery in my 2001 BMW Z3 and radio won't allow me to enter the four digit code to reactivate it. Just keeps showing "code wait". Any ideas?


You entered the wrong code and there is a limit to the number of tries. I believe you must wait an hour for your next attempt.

I just purchased a 1996 BMW Z3 Roadster for my wife for our anniversary. The radio is locked, I have gone to the local BMW dealer now three times and they still can not help me. The original radio unlock...


Normally the dealer just needs to know the serial and it will give you the code in less than a minute. If the code they gave you doesn't work then the radio unit  has been modified and the only ones that know what was modified  are the ones that did it.
Just bite the bullet and get a new radio - one with an iPod hookup , your wife will appreciate that.

Check Engine light on 1998 BMW Z3 roadster


yes the light is because of the gas cap being gone (sets code in evaporative emissions system), replace the gas cap, disconnect the battery for five minutes and that will turn of/reset the light, make sure u have the radio code before u do this, if u don't u will have no radio after the battery is disconnected..

Radio code


Hello, The only way I know of to get a radio code is from BMW itself. If you call your nearest BMW dealer and supply them with all the info they need, they can get it from BMW. You may be required to make available your registration and ID for them to process this.
I hope this helps.
