Hi Cag. You can call your local BMW dealer and ask for the parts department. Alpine,and Blaupunkt,were the most common radio makers. The parts guys have a software program they can enter your radio serial number and retrieve a code.

actually your radio has an antitheft system to prevent thefts to use it, but most of the times the previous owner will know the code or he might wrote it down at the owners manual,
or you can try to contact the dealer some times they will be nice and just give you the code, but you nned to be ready with the vin number of the car, and the serial number on the radio in order to get the code from the dealer, but if you have a friend or relative with auto repair, they wiil call the dealer, in most cases they have very good erlation with auto dealer.

SOURCE: Lock code for radio cassette

After failing to enter the correct code in 3 successive tries, you must leave the key in the "ignition on" position with the radio on. This will allow you 3 more tries to reset the 5 digit code.
If you enter an erroneous digit, you must complete the 5 digit code, even though it is wrong. You have 2 more attempts to enter the correct code.

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

Yes. If it was bought in the US, it was coded for the US, so have a US dealer provide the code.

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.

I have a 1984 BMW 528e and the radio, brake lights, power windows and speedometer stopped working


Check all your fuses, they come loose and get corroded on these cars often. Give them all a good wiggle to get rid of any oxidation and be sure they aren't blown. If it's not that, check your wiring harnesses.

That sounds like a loose fuse. Check your fuse panel and verify everything is snug. If it all looks good, it could be a bad fuse. Find the fuse that controls the dash lights and replace it. If it's still bad you must have a loose wire somewhere.

My battery died in my 735i, 1988 bmw. my radio stopped working. it shows 'code' on the radio. my code is 1545. i input it but nothing happens. what is the correct sequence to get it working?


If the wrong code was entered too many times the system locks itself out and you must wait approximately 30 minutes before you attempt to input the code. It is important that in this time that the radio is on, and that you don't attempt to enter the code. If this doesn't work I would verify that you actually have the correct code. The code is not written anywhere on the radio as it comes from the factory, however there is a serial number on the back of the radio that allows the dealership to retrieve it easily.

How to find fuel pump relay on 1985 bmw 318i


I have a 1985 bmw 528e 5 series. It won't start and we think it has something to do with the fuel injector. Is there a relay for that or a fuse that would stop that from working? We get gas to the injectors but none going past.

1987 528e power window problem


We're going to make a couple of assumptions before continuing:
* The fuse for the windows has been checked and is OK.
* All windows stopped working at the same time and we can assume that both switches or both window motors are not faulty.
The first thing you want to do is test to see if the circuit-breaker switch is faulty which is usually down to the left by the kick panel (see photo below). Pull/pry the switch out of the panel and remove the harness plug. The plug should have just two wires in it (if not, do not perform this test, contact us for more info). Use a jumper wire to connect the two contacts in the harness plug (effectively jumpering the two wires together and mimicking the switch being closed). If the windows now work, the circuit-breaker switch is faulty and needs to be replaced. If the windows do not work, check or replace the power window relay (in the fuse-box - see photo below), If the windows still do not work, further diagnostics will need to be performed, using the vehicle wiring diagrams.

Need to know how to program the code in to my 1993 bmw 740 I


The BMW anti-theft radio circuitry is designed to essentially render your radio unsalable if it is stolen. If the radio is subsequently electrically reconnected, it will not operate until a five-digit security code assigned to your radio is entered. The anti-theft features and operation are as follows:

  1. After the ignition key is removed, the red "anti-theft" LED will continuously flash, drawing attention to this feature.
  2. Should anyone, such as a thief, touch any push-button on the radio after the key is removed, the anti-theft inscription will flash and a warning tone will sound for 5 minutes or until the ignition is turned ON .
  3. Should the voltage supply to the radio drop below 5 volts due to a dead battery, electrical repairs, or radio removal (such as theft), the radio will not function when voltage is restored. The word "code" will show in the display only.
  4. The proper 5-digit code shown on the TWO CARDS SUPPLIED TO YOU must then be entered (using the proper number radio push-button selectors in the bottom row) when the radio is on and the display shows "code". If the correct code is not entered in three successive tries , the radio will not accept entry until the radio has been left on for one hour with the ignition ON . IMPORTANT: When entering 5-digit code number, be sure to complete sequence number of that 5-digit code. For example: Code No. sequence is 43215 and you mistakenly enter 42 instead of 3, continue the code number sequence of 215 to complete that entry. The radio will not operate and "code" will reappear in the display. Re-enter the correct number sequence of 43215 and operation of the radio will continue. The likelihood of guessing the correct code is extremely remote. The radio is, therefore, unsalable to a thief. NOTE: If an audible beep is heard while entering the 5-digit code, STOP immediately ! Begin entering the code again, starting with the first number of the 5-digit code.
  5. The code card should be placed in your wallet, or with the vehicle title papers for security as deemed necessary by your individual needs.
  6. Should radio or electrical repairs become necessary, please give the repairing facility the radio code number. If you do not, only authorized BMW dealer personnel can obtain the code from BMW.
  7. Should you lose your code cards, contact the nearest BMW dealer who will then obtain your code from BMW. You may be charged for removal of the radio to ascertain the radio chassis number.
  8. WARNING: FOR YOUR PROTECTION, CODES WILL NOT BE GIVEN OUT TO ANYONE UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES OTHER THAN AUTHORIZED BMW DEALER PERSONNEL AFTER PROOF OF VEHICLE OWNERSHIP AND PROPER IDENTIFICATION IS ESTABLISHED.
  9. Install the 2 enclosed warning decals in accordance with motor vehicle regulations.

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.
