Quickly Unlock and Reset the REGION Code of your BMW Business CD CD53 Radio
This video demonstrates how to reset, code the REGION and calibrate the PLAYBACK features of your BMW Business CD Radio. The unit I'm resetting is a Feb 2006 Alpine BMW Business CD53 Radio BMW Parts Number 65 12 6 961 215 that has MP3, HD Radio, Sirius Satellite Radio, and iPod Data/Auxillary Capabilities. This unit was ordered online but came set for another region. If your radio came like this unit did you will need to follow the steps in this video to unlock, reset and code your radio to your region. You can also see hidden information (like the production date and SV number) on the radio as well as set your antenna sensitivity and play around with your DSP settings.
This will work for all year BMW Business CD53 and CD radios found on the 3 series and X3 vehicles as well as other BMW vehicles.
There have been a number of posts on the Service Mode settings. Here is a summary of what I have seen:
AREA - self explanatory (EUR,USA, JAP, etc)
AF - Alternate frequency feature which automatically finds and can switch to a stronger station with same programming. (off, Auto, Autonopi, Man. Not used in USA broadcasts) see:http://www.bimmerfest.com/forums/sho...19&postcount=6
SN - serial number
SV - firmware version and date in week-year format
RI - Supposedly revision index, but never seen specifics on it.
GAL - speed dependent volume sensitivity
AM or FM - Displays current frequency and Field strength for signal
DSP 0 V 15 - Identifies presence of DSP (0/1, 0 for E46) and current output volume setting
TP-V Volume offset for traffic alert programming (Not used in USA Area) see: http://www.bimmerfest.com/forums/sho...50&postcount=2

it to be 100% factory you'll need a climate control trim piece available

worked quit well. e46 is the only model that uses the OEM part and it's

How To Recharge Your BMW 3 Series AC System BMW E46 1998 - 2006
Recharging The A/c System
CAUTION: The high side of the A/C system is under considerable pressure. If
a can of refrigerant is connected to the high side service fitting, it may
explode! The system must therefore be recharged by using the low side
service fitting only. If you are not sure which fittings are which, do not
attempt to recharge your air conditioner yourself. Wear eye protection and
avoid direct contact with the refrigerant as it can cause frostbite on bare
The basic recharging procedure goes as follows:
1. Identify the low side service fitting.
2. Determine the type of refrigerant required by the system. On most 1993
and older vehicles, this would be R12. On most 1994 and newer vehicles, it
would be R134a.
CAUTION: R12 and R134a refrigerants are incompatible and must not be
intermixed. Use the type of refrigerant required for your A/C system only.
On most 1993 and newer vehicles, there's an identification decal or sticker
that tells what kind of refrigerant is required. Also, the size and design
of R134a and R12 service fittings are different to avoid
3. Connect a can of refrigerant to a gauge set or recharging hose and valve
set. Follow the equipment supplier's directions for making the connections.
4. Open the valve momentarily on the gauge set or hose to blow all air out
of the line (this is necessary to keep from introducing air and moisture
into your A/C system).
5. Connect the gauge set or hose to the low side A/C service fitting on the
vehicle. This is usually located near the receiver/drier or accumulator, or
suction side of the compressor.
6. CAUTION: Make sure the can of refrigerant is held in the upright
position so only vapor enters the line. Do not tip the can sideways or
upside down as doing so will allow liquid to enter the low pressure side of
the A/C system (This may cause damage to the A/C compressor). Also, never
heat the can to make it empty faster as doing so may cause the can to
7. Start the engine and turn the A/C system on high. The compressor should
be engaged or cycling on and off (it may be necessary to jump the
compressor clutch directly to the battery if the system is extremely low on
refrigerant to keep it engaged). Compressor suction will pull refrigerant
vapor into the system and slowly empty the can. This can take up to 10
minutes or more, so don't be anxious.
8. When the can is empty, disconnect the charging hose from the service
fitting. Use care when disconnecting the "empty" can from the gauge set or
charging hose as it may contain some residual refrigerant.
9. Add additional cans of refrigerant as needed until the system is
CAUTION: The most common mistake made by do-it-yourselfers is overcharging.
Too much refrigerant can reduce cooling efficiency just the same as too
little refrigerant. To work properly, the A/C system needs just the right
amount. Always refer to the system capacity specs in a shop manual or other
source to determine how much refrigerant is required. System capacities are
specified in ounces. One can of refrigerant equals about 14 oz. Usually
three to four cans is enough to fully recharge a typical passenger car A/C
system that was empty. If the system is low, one or two cans of refrigerant
are usually all that's required.
