Electronic Anti-Theft Protection

The Radio -R- is equipped with anti-theft coding, which operates in conjunction with the instrument cluster.

After disconnecting the radio power supply, the Radio -R- is ready for use again once the power supply is connected. The radio code does not need to be entered again. The requirement is that the anti-theft coding must be activated for the first time and that the Radio -R- is reconnected in the same vehicle.

Notes Regarding Function

After first activation of the anti-theft system, an internal radio code is stored in Radio -R- and in instrument cluster. If the Radio -R- voltage is now cut off for repair work, a data exchange is then performed between the Radio -R- and instrument cluster after reconnecting the voltage supply.

During this, the internal radio code of the Radio -R- is compared to the one in the instrument cluster. If the radio code is identical, the instrument cluster recognizes that the Radio -R- connected belongs to that vehicle and the Radio -R- can be used immediately. The radio code does not need to be entered again.

If the Radio -R- is replaced, radio code must be entered.

Deactivate the electronic anti-theft protection.

Then, after the "S-contact" is switched on via the ignition lock, the comparison between instrument cluster and Radio -R- is started automatically.

The Comparison Lasts Approximately 5 Seconds. During This Time, Diagnostic Devices Must Not Be Connected or Disconnected.

When the power supply is disconnected, the Radio -R- is ready for use in this vehicle once the power supply is connected. The radio code does not need to be entered again.

The anti-theft coding is activated and locks the Radio -R- as soon as:

  • The Radio -R- is installed in a different vehicle.
  • the instrument cluster is replaced.

The Radio -R- has been locked by the anti-theft protection. After switching on the Radio -R-"SAFE" and "1000" will appear in the display.

To cancel the lock, deactivate the anti-theft protection.

Electronic Anti-Theft Protection, Deactivating

Reactivating a locked Radio -R- is only possible by entering correct radio code number for anti-theft protection.

Note

  • The radio code for the anti-theft system is attached to the radio card next to the serial number. Refer to the Owner's Manual.
  • For reasons of safety, do not leave the radio card in the vehicle. Get the radio code from the customer.
  • If a Radio -R- is being replaced, then use the radio code of the replacement radio.
  • Inform the customer the radio code has been changed.
  • Get the radio code.
  • Switch on the Radio -R-.

The Radio -R- automatically displays "SAFE" and then "1000".

  • Enter the radio code by using the radio station buttons 1 through 4. Use the first radio station button to enter the first digit of the radio code. Use the second radio station button to enter the second digit.
  • Press the radio station button under the "OK" message in the display and hold it until the anti-theft code is activated. This is indicated by a short signal sound.

If the radio code has been entered correctly into Radio -R-, a radio frequency appears on the display.

If the radio code has been entered incorrectly, it can be corrected immediately in another attempt. If radio code is entered incorrectly twice, then the Radio -R- will lock up for one hour. The Radio -R- can then be switched on and insert the key in ignition lock. After one hour, then the procedure for deactivating the anti-theft system can be repeated. Remember: Always two attempts, after that the Radio -R- will be locked for one hour.
