Alarm PIN Code

Greetings All-
I was just reading through the alarm supplement of the owners manual (only took me 2 years to get around to reading that) and noticed they talk about a personal PIN code that should be on a card that came with the bike. Well, the previous owner did not give me any such card! There is a sticker (mostly worn out) on one of the key fobs that looks like the stickers they show in the manual. The number on it looks like J1K followed by a 5 digit number. Is this the format of the PIN, and is the last 5 digits my code?

Thanks,
-Scott

Re: Alarm PIN Code

I think you may be talking about the "Radiopass BMW" which is a small card that has Model, Serial No. and "safety-Nr." on it?

Anyway, it does not match up to my VIN at all.

Sorry, I guess I'm not much help... what page in the supplemental manual are you reading from? I'll take a look at mine.

Page 27, registering new control units, and page 16, deactivating the alarm without remote control unit. I have 3 "Radiopass" cards, but all three have different numbers, and they are really long (12 digits and 2 letters). Don't have a clue what those are for. Page 6 shows the card I don't have.

I have been getting along fine without the code, but the two sections in the manual referenced above might come in handy at some point!

Re: Alarm PIN Code

The alarm code would have been on a white plastic credit card. It would have been in a small manila envelope in the radio compartment. If you don't have it I'm sure it would be available from your local dealer. I'm sure for a "nominal fee" they could order you a new card. If you are lucky maybe they could just look it up using your vin # and let you know what it is. Keep it in your phone, PDA, whatever. I've got it in both places and keep the card with my title, in my safe. FYI my code is just 5 numerals.

Re: Alarm PIN Code

The code for my 2005 K1200LT is also 5 numbers. BMW will get the code for you given the engine and frame number & probably something verbal or written the shows that you own the bike.

Re: Alarm PIN Code

Scott,

My 05 had some kind of recall and they had to replace the alarm module. I got the credit card (with the alarm code) and used it to program a new FOB.

The dealer also attached a slim (maybe 1/4" by 1.0") strip with 5 numbers on it to the inside of my side luggage. Mine was on the door itself near the bottom. He told me if I lost the card, the dealer could cross reference the number on the luggage to the real number.

See if you have a decal like this and your dealer may be able to cross it.

Only if the radio is the original. Since scurrie has three radiopass cards, his LT is probably on the third radio. When my third radio was installed (under warranty) I forgot to ask for the radiopass card until I was suited up and ready to leave the dealer. By then they couldn't find the card. Later when I had the radio out to install an AUX input cable, I found the radiopass card, taped to the top of the radio.

I believe my radio is original. I wish it was replaced, but, at least 2 speakers work (one on each side )

My alarm got replaced under warranty (something about the immobilizer not working in cold weather) and the alarm code was on the credit card-thingy. I don't know if there is one for my radio or not.

Anyway, my dealer removed the old sticker and put the new one on in its place, FWIW.

Well, I looked everywhere and didn't find any stickers. Guess I'll have to check with the dealer.

Thanks for all the suggestions!

Re: Alarm PIN Code

On my 2003 LT, there is a five-digit number on a sticker attached to the alarm system box; to access it, you have to remove the top case.

With that five-digit number, a dealer can obtain the codes for the alarm system.

Re: Alarm PIN Code

Well, at least that is the theory on how to obtain the actual codes for your alarm system.

A month ago, I asked the dealer to get me the code, providing the 5 digit number from underneath the top box and on top of the alarm system.

He hasn't gotten a response from BMW yet.

So I'm not messing with the fobs or the alarm system.

Only a month? Heck, I've been waiting for over 2 years.

Bought the bike used, no alarm code, only one fob. I brought the bike to BMW (it had an open recall on the fuel line QDs) and asked them if they could obtain the alarm code, and I would buy a second fob. They were never able to get the code from BMW. Needless to say, I didn't buy the fob, either.

I never use the alarm. In fact, I just added in a fake blinking LED that only operates when the key is in the off position. One of these days I'll get around to bypassing the alarm system completely.

Re: Alarm PIN Code

Was out for a ride not long ago and disconected the battery after lunch to reset the radio and not thinking when I herd the alarm chirp heart sank some I did not have the key fob to reset alarm.

Called BMW of Atlanta and talked to a tech was told no way to reset the alarm with out the key fob. Made a 3 hour round Trip thanks to a young man that took he home to get the fob.

If I had the alarm code would there have been away for me to reset the alarm with out the fob?

Thanks

Re: Alarm PIN Code

Some good news to report:

The dealership sent a second query via e-mail yesterday and BMW supplied the number this morning.

Now I only have to overcome my fear of screwing things up when I start playing with the alarm system.
