Electronic Anti-Theft Protection

General Information

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.

Use the Vehicle Diagnostic Tester to get the anti-theft code.

Note

The Vehicle Diagnostic Testermust be "online" (connected to the network) in order to get the anti-theft code and the user must be authorized to access radio codes.

Electronic Anti-Theft Protection, Deactivating

Reactivating a locked Radio -R- is only possible by entering the correct anti-theft code for anti-theft coding.

Using the Vehicle Diagnostic Tester to Get the Anti-Theft Code:

  • Connect the Vehicle Diagnostic Tester.
  • Select the Guided Fault Finding mode.
  • Use the GO TO button to select the "function/component selection" and the following menu options one after the other:
  • Body
  • Electrical Equipment
  • 01-OBD-capable system
  • Corresponding radio system
  • Radio system functions
  • Radio code inquiry

Authorization will be requested from the system: Then the operating data, the VIN and the Radio -R- device number will be automatically read out.

Note

The Vehicle Diagnostic Tester may not be able to read the Radio -R- device number when a new Radio -R- is installed. In this case, enter the serial number manually. The serial number can be found on a sticker on the Radio -R- and is also stamped into the side of the unit.

The Vehicle Diagnostic Tester will display the anti-theft code.

Manually enter the anti-theft code in the Radio -R-.

Deactivating the Electronic Anti-Theft Protection
  • Switch on the Radio -R-.

An input screen appears.

  • Enter the correct anti-theft code using the keyboard on the input screen.
  • Press the input button to confirm in the entry.
The Radio -R- is enabled and is ready to be used.

Use the correction button to erase an incorrect code.

If the wrong code number was entered when overriding the anti-theft coding, first "SAFE" blinks in the display and "1000" appears again. The entire procedure can now be repeated one more time. The number of tries is shown in the display. If a wrong code number is entered again, the Radio -R- will lock up for approximately one hour. This lock is indicated by the word "SAFE" appearing continuously in the display. 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.
