Z£M Roadster 1999 Radio Code

Post by Rocketman » Sun 02 Jun, 2019 09:49

Returned from a period abroad. Car has been on a CTEK during that time so battery should be fine. Started car and radio (Blaupunkt Business CD RDS) is asking for Code. Front of service record book has hand written tells me Code is 8142. My first question, how do I physically enter the code? I know how to enter the 4 digits but which button do i use to enter the selected code? I am also periodically getting 'Code Wait'.

Hi

You say it's a Blaupunkt Business CD RDS. Didn't they make the BMW Business range?

Anyway, for the BMW Business CD you enter the code using the number buttons.

8142
Press button 1 8 times
Press button 2 once
Press button 3 4 times
Press button 4 twice

3 incorrect entries and you have to wait an hour for another go.

Hope it works. Good luck.
Mark

Turfarlian, thanks. Its strange. The radio is now coming up with 'Code Wait' and doesn't let me change anything by using the button keys. I have also found a Radio Pass BMW card that states the code is 9479 (Europe) which i do seem to recognise from years ago. Anyway at the moment I have no access to the buttons. Regards Rocketman

One hour to wait then have another go with your other code.
Good luck

Don't appear to have access to use the buttons to enter the code.

Copied from my manual for the BMW Business CD....

"After three incorrect entries the word WAIT appears in the display.
No further numbers can be entered for the next hour.
The radio must not be switched off during this time.

If the power supply is interrupted during this waiting time, the waiting time is extended by a further hour when reconnected."

Tufarlian, thanks for all your advice.

Eventually got a chance to let the car sit there with radio on for an hour and great news, alternate radio Code entered and now working. Thanks again.
