Odd Radio Code Trouble
So here's the usual scenario: we replaced the battery, and now the stock BMW Business Stereo displays "CODE -----", a loving prompt to input the 5-digit security code.
We bought the BMW used and it came with very complete documentation, including two copies of the "Anti Theft Radio Security Card" and a "BMW Radiopass" for the CD changer that now doesn't work. So we tried the code listed on the Anti-Theft cards, but here's the rub: it doesn't work. Tried it several times until it went into "CODE WAIT," waited an hour, tried it again, and it still doesn't work.
Am I going to have to pay the bloodsucking dealership $50 for them to "figure out" my code for me, or can I do it myself somehow? Or is the lack of correspondence between the given code and the radio's code mean a problem that'll cost even more? Cheers!
