Hi, sorry to bore you all if this has been done before. My 2001 R50 cooper has a few water ingress problems which seem to be resolved , sealed screen and door seal, indicators now work, still have airbag light and runflat light on, disconnected battery as and reconnected now central locking/alarm works again, BUT,,,, now radio says disabled

read all sorts of things about Ibus kbus controllers thingys gone straight over my head, is there a easy ish fix, if not if i install a aftermarket head unit, will that work, will it need total rewire or can i buy an adapter to plug into the origanal wiring block ??????

Thanks in advance

I'm pretty sure you just have to put in the 4 digit
security code when you disconnect the battery.
