SOURCE: Unlock radio code

Hello!
To unlock the radio you will need to inform your local B.M.W. Agent/Dealer of the Registration details i.e. V.I.N./Chassis number ownership Log Book/Title they will be able to supply you with the necessary code for your radio to work. Have you looked through the booklets/service history if available in the Glove box maybe written down there?
Good Luck!

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: need the unlocked code for my radio in my 1994 bmw 540i

you'll need to take your VIN and the radio serial number (located on the back of the radio) and maybe even one of the master keys to a BMW dealer and they will look it up for you.

The only way to obtain a code is to call BMW with the serial number which is located on a stick at the back of the radio

What is the radio unlock code for a 1996 BMW 328i?


If you cannot find the code written on something in the glove box, you will have to remove the radio. Once removed, you will need the serial number off of the radio chassis. You can call BMW with this number and they will give you the code.

Hope this helps!

Getting the code to unlock the radio requires access to the factory data base, that is restricted and we do not have permission. You will need to contact the dealer for help with this. The original owner was given this code.

I just purchased a 1996 BMW Z3 Roadster for my wife for our anniversary. The radio is locked, I have gone to the local BMW dealer now three times and they still can not help me. The original radio unlock...


Normally the dealer just needs to know the serial and it will give you the code in less than a minute. If the code they gave you doesn't work then the radio unit  has been modified and the only ones that know what was modified  are the ones that did it.
Just bite the bullet and get a new radio - one with an iPod hookup , your wife will appreciate that.

Radio unlock code


Dear Madam or Sir,

the unlock code can only be recovered by the BMW Dealer, it´s saved in the BMW databases. The dealer only needs to know the vehicle identification number of your car.

Hello There.

The wait means you need to wait with the radio on for a certain amount of time, depending on how many times the wrong code was entered.

To get your unlocking code there are many websites that offer an unlocking service for a few £/$ . here is one that I found>
