    Anti-theft code

    The radio features anti-theft circuitry. If the set is removed from the vehicle or if the battery power is disconnected, a special code must be entered to enable operation of the set.
    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.

    Incorrect code

    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 unit must be turned on
    Make sure the headlights are turned off to help prevent battery drain (please refer to page 20 for information on turning the headlights off). Enter the code again once this time has elapsed.
