How do you enter a BMW radio code?

After having my battery changed a couple of days ago, I haven’t been able to get the radio in my BMW to work. I heard something about putting in a radio code to fix it but I don’t know anything about that sort of thing. How can I enter a BMW radio code to get my radio working again?

I’m sorry to hear that you’ve been having problems with your radio. Luckily, this is a common issue after getting your battery changed.
To enter a BMW radio code, follow these instructions:
  1. Find the radio code in your owner’s manual. It is usually located on the front or back of the manual on a small white sticker.
  2. Turn your car on and press the radio’s power button.
  3. Use the numbered station buttons to enter the radio code.
  4. Press and hold the volume button to complete the process.
Now that your radio is up and running again, you can drive around to the sound of your favorite stations. However, before you hit the road, you may want to check out the
