The BMW dealer people told me to turn the radio on and keep power on for 1 hour and 15 minutes before entering the code. That evening I was stuck in traffic commuting back home and I left my engine running while I call home from a phone booth. Before I reached home the wait has passed and I keyed in the five digit. No more beeps. The radio started working:)

I just received the code from BMW Canada (they had to get it
from BMW USA - as its a USA car).

After turning the radio on with the key on and waiting for just over 1 hour, imputting the code just gets me the beep
after entering the 5th number.

This happened to anyone else? Any suggestions?
