After installing a new battery in a 89 BMW 325i, the radio reads "Code". and will not turn on. Does anyone know how to fix this.

Yep, almost all late models do this. The code for mine is in a separate folder and I also wrote it on the back page of the owner's manual. If the manual is still with the car, lots of people write it in.

off to the dealer? Ill do without the radio before I pay some guy to put in a "secret code". What a way to get your money.

Ill look for it hopefully ill find it.

Thanks

Write the VIN down on a piece of paper, drive the car to the dealer, go to the parts dept & ask the guy to get the code for you. He'll probably want to be sure that it's your car, that's why you take it to the dealer. It's usually a no cost deal. Call & ask first. :rolleyes:
