I had someone change the radio in my 1998 camry and it did work. My battery went dead, dead and once I replaced battery the radio now doesn't work. Why>


Car radios have security codes to prevent them from being stolen. If they lose power, such as when replacing the battery, they lock out. This makes them worthless to anyone trying to steal them. You need to have the unlock code to reactivate the radio. It is provided with the vehicle at purchase, or by the retailer when selling replacements

The original radio and wipers of 1998 BMW 3181just went off.


Check your fuses. If moisture or a power surge happen recently it's pretty common. NOTE have your radio code handy, you'll need that to get radio up and running.

Car battery went dead and need to find out how to enter code for 1989 BMW car stereo


go to your dealership and give them the make, model, and year of your car. next give the the serial number of the radio( should be in the glove box on a label. explain to the the problem, and they should be able to look up the 5 digit code for you(most dealerships do this for free). when you go to enter the code, the radio must be powered up for one hour before entering the code(in case of theft). I hope this helps you

Batteryis dead


Need more info - How old is battery? can you jump start? etc. If you can jump start it, take it to a local parts store like Autozone, Advance, etc and have them test your charging system and battery. Note if battery went dead, you're going to need your code to re-activate your factory radio.

I have a 2001 daewoo lanos and the battery went dead and now the radio is saying it needs a code to work. do you know that code or how to find it?


This code should be in the glovebox on a small card the size of a credit card. if the code is not found you will need to remove the radio and get the serial # off the radio then go to dealer with the reg and id to prve ownership and they will give it to you, hope this helps.

One of two things has happened

Because your battery went flat and you then created a short circuit the radio may be locked out and need a start code which should be in your manual

Worse case is that by applying a reverse polarity to the radio you have blown the protection diodes up inside it, if so it is a back to the maker job

I have a 2001 BMW Z3. The battery went dead last


most new BMW's the fuse block is located behind the glove box. There should be a pair of twist plastic fastners at the back of the glove box, twist and remove the plate and you should find the fuse box and fuse locater list.

Check the battery with a voltmeter. If it drops below 11v while the key is on or you are trying to start it the battery is faulty. You can also try connecting jumper cables (I would do so without the donor vehicle running), if the instruments & lights work while cables are connected your battery is the problem.
