Thanks div2. I took a drive that is about 1.5 hours long, left the radio on and then entered the code. It worked.

You're welcome! I learned about the waiting period back in 1989 with a friend's brand-new 535i. We had disconnected the battery so we could display it in the banquet hall at the BMW CCA Oktoberfest(a stupid hotel rule; they also wanted us to drain the gas tank...). Anyway, the battery disconnect also caused the trip computer to revert back to its native German. We finally got it to speak English but it turned out to be British units of measure. At the time it was pretty heady stuff-especially to a guy with a 1973 Bavaria.
