Refer to the radio code card supplied with your vehicle or ask your retailer for the correct code
When the car is parked with the ignition key removed, the anti-theft LED will flash
To enter the code
After installation or when the set has been disconnected from power, the set displays "codE" when it is switched on.
Enter the 4-digit code using the preset buttons. If the correct code is entered, "on" is displayed and the set is ready to use.
If you enter an incorrect code you must enter the correct code again from the beginning.
If an incorrect code has been entered "rPt" is displayed. Enter the correct code.
After three unsuccessful coding attempts the set will lock and remain locked for two hours.

The radio can be used in most parts of the world by changing the frequency selection intervals as follows:
