The radio needs the security code to work. New stereos are easily installed.

Obviously only car and radio owner can have access to the code... If you bought the car, proof of ownership at a dealer may help you get access to the code.

I solved the prob with the radio.Previous owner had correct code..Turns out that bmw locks you out of the radio after 3 trys if you are entering the wrong code...What you have to do is let the car sit for min. of 1 hour with the radio on..This resets the radio and unlocks it.Enter the correct code and walah...Instant music..Thanks..
