anti theft please help

alright so i own a 1994 bmw 3 series,325i.A buddy of mine was hooking up an aftermarket head unit but didnt finish the job its halfway hooked up.But now my car wont start and someone told me before exchanging head units you have to enter a code in the original head unit to avoid anti theft which i think my car is in now. If anyone knows anything that might help it would be greatly appreciated

Welcome to Bimmerfest! I've moved your question to the E36 3 series forum, you'll get more help in here.

Good luck,
Tim

if by "head unit" you mean a BMW radio, the code only disables the radio.

My wild guesses from a great distance are a fuse blew during installation because the battery was connected, or the WIP has broken a connection or blown a fuse.

Pictures and more information might help.
