code comes up on the screen on radio because i took battery out of car. so what is the trick to inputting the code so the radio will work. yes i have the code and i tried to put in and the last digit it would beep i did it three times got nothing .
Normally you just punch in the code, however if its the wrong code, or the radio has been replaced at sometime and the code you have is wrong, theres only one way, thats down the dealers, who will pull the radio as on the back is the security code and the radio also is protected via the alarm system. If you go down the dealers take proof of ownership, If however I find out anything else I will get bak to you.

I stepped in a plate of Pasta the other day - now I have to worry about my Carbonara footprint!
mine did the same thing. It would beep when I was in the middle of punching in the code and manual stated to stop, wait and re enter. I finally just drove the car for about an hour or so and re entered the code and it finally took. hope this helps.
hi ..I have the same problem with my 735il...but you know I have never heard the sound of a falling leaf hitting the windshield befor...I kinda like my bemmer a little more because of the wonderfull lack of noise ...the dealer here in victoria was no help...but I was warned that would happen....
well I went for a drive and tried the code and it took !! now the radio works it was the code the dealer had and the same I found in the owners manuel..so the next problem is how to get the intierior lites to come on with the door opening..none of the lites come on except the overhead lites.what switch do I need to turn or is there a setting with the dash computer?...any ideas?
