Inputted incorrect radio code and now the digital display says code waiting. I now have the correct radio code - now what do I do?


may have to power it down---such as remove all power from the radio, wait a while and try again. If that doesn't work, I've heard that you have to wait up to six hours with the power ON and then retry. On the 318i the wait is about 90 min.

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.

Cant get the word code off my radio in car so i can put the code in


Hi,

This happens when you have made several incorrect code entries and the radio will make you wait for a longer period each time a wrong entry is made before you can enter another code.

The resolution is as follows;

1) You must have 0000 showing on the display before the radio will accept the code.

If CODE or ERROR is on the display you must leave the radio switched on with the key turned to the first point in the ignition that activates the radio until the display changes to 0000.

This can take over an hour depending on how many wrong code entries have been made.

2) When you get 0000 on the display, use the steering stalk and not the radio to enter the code. Turn the thumbwheel until the number changes on the display. Accept each one by pressing the satellite button on the bottom of the stalk.

3) When all four numbers are entered on the display you must press and hold the button on bottom of the stalk until you hear a confirmation beep. This may take up to 10 seconds.

4) Enjoy your sounds!

Please leave a vote for the solution if it helps. Thanks.

1998 bmw z3...put a new battery in..asked for code..managed to obtain code but cant turn the volume up..seems muted yet shows the radio stations (display is very faint)


I hate to say this, but I doubt the radio or battery has much to do with it.
This is just a wild guess, but I would suggest you get a voltmeter and check the alternator output.
It should be 12.5 at idle, but over 13.5 when reved up.
If the radio is weak output, it seems to me it is getting less then 12 volts input, or else it had blown internals.
Another possibility is that a door speaker wire may be shorting and draining radio power.
Hard to guess.

My s70 1198 volvo's radio says off what do i do??


You have to put the battery on a charger and leave the key turned to the accessory position, meaning the car is not running but the radio still displays off. You will have to wait approximately 50 minutes to 2 hours till the word "code" is displayed.Once that has occured, you can put in your code and it will work. Or you can drive around for that length of time until it says code and you will input the correct code and you radio will work. I did this on a long trip.

BMW Z3 WRONG UNLOCK RADIO CODE HOW TO GET THE RIGHT ONE


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.
