you have the wrong code, where did you get the code from? if you got ir from the dealer and it doesnt work then the radio is prolly shot, they arent the best made radios and most of them quit at some point

lady I bought the car from says she left lights on and the radio came up reading code. She said not first time she has done it. The code was on a piece of paper she gave me. She said it worked but she left lights on and viola no more radio. GO Figure........

Ok thank you. I called a salvage yard and they said they have a BMW radio for 50 bucks, but you have to call the BMW dealership to get the code. Code schmode, tired of hearing that word. I think maybe I might put in an aftermarket cd player rather than F**K with the code BS.
