I dont have the radio manual. The previous owner had a code he wrote down in the maual but entering it does not work, unless there's a special way to enter it?
Otherwise, I'll call the stealership with the VIN to see if they will give it to me.
^Yes sir witeshark, it sure does. 1) Wait for radio to prompt you for the code, 2)Enter the numbers slowly, **If the radio starts to beep before you have entered all the numbers stop, wait and try again. Check other threads in this forum regarding radio codes, I know there is a couple in the 7 series forum. If you have been "booted" out by entering the code too many times you may have to try turning you ignition to "on" and let it sit one hour then retry.

I just purchased a 92 525, apparently the radio needs a code input. Can someone tell me where I find the code needed for my radio?
If you can pull the radio and post the serial number, for some of the stereo brands BMW used an online lookup can be done. For other brands, you'll be visiting the dealer.
Unless your stereo has a way for putting the serial number up on the display, someone will have to pull the unit to find it. There's also the chance that your code is correct but the electronics inside the radio is messed up.
