    Hi all, New member but also a member on E46fanatics. I disconnected the negative terminal (only neg) on my 2000 BMW 330ci E46 (5 speed auto) today for around 20-30 mins. When I re-connected it, I noticed that the radio doesn't work at all. I have BMW option 602 On-Board monitor. So I have a...

    I took my 2001 Z3 to BMW dealership who said they cannot find the code and I was better off just changing it out with a new stereo!! I don't want to change it so I'm reaching out to my fellow BMW enthusiasts to hopefully be able to help me out. Any help with a code would greatly be appreciated...

    I am in desperate need of help. I have the radio lock out code problem. I've done all the research and know what to do, the only issue is my code isn't working. I even spoke with my friend who's a tech at BMW and he found the same code. All I can think of is the speaker says Harmon kardon, and I...

    I am a first time BMW owner and before I know what I was doing, I disconnected the battery to clean the terminals. I got the info on getting a S/N off the radio display here but I have run into an issue. The dealership does not have the right code (they gave me an incorrect code and I got the...

    I just bought a 94 325i and the radio was locked. The serial number off the back is F40310866b. If anyone can help with unlock code otherwise I'll have to go to the dealership Monday but I'd like to make sure all the speakers work as well as listen to music this weekend.

    My alternator died and so did the battery. It's all fixed now, but my clock is set in european settings (Km, liters, milatary time, etc.). How do i get it back to USA settings? Also, I'm having problems entering the radio code. I obtained the code from a dealership, but it hasn't worked yet...
  8. E39 (1997 - 2003)
    I have a 2003 e39. I just read something that said "before you disconnect the battery, make note of the RADIO CODE". What is the radio code and why do I need to make note of it? How do I determine what it is? Much Thanks!!!

    The battery on my '87 went completely dead and the radio now needs a code to re-boot. While I have most of the original paperwork, I don't have the code. To acquire the code, the dealer says I need to 1. Bring the car in so they can pull the radio for the SN, or 2. Pull the radio and get the...

    Hello Festers, I have talked with BMW of North America & 3-dealers, one of which sold the vehicle new. None were able to locate a code from their data base with the serial number stamped on the radio, or from the paper tag attached with the MDL Number & P-No. Here are the numbers. It would...

    I recently bought a 318i at an auction. It took me a while to figure out how to get the unlock code, but here is how to do it. 1. Get in car, turn key on. PRESS the button that is labled 'm' for 5 seconds. 2. Your radio serial number will be displayed. 3. Call your local dealer. Give him that...

    Hello Everyone, This a continuation of an earlier thread. My radio serial # X2348235, code = 63145 (as given to me from two different BMW dealers). I enter the code but it still does not work. However, if I set the "Area" from USA to Japan I can get some functionality out of it. I can...

    Hello Everyone, I am new here and I hope that I am doing this right? I needed to replace my battery in my 2000 Mcoupe and then I've noticed that I now needed to enter my radio code. I found the serial number by holding the "M" button for a few seconds and I then gave the serial number to a...
