Anti-Theft Code

General Information

Radio navigation system "RNS 510" is equipped with an electronic convenience anti-theft system which operates in conjunction with the instrument cluster.

After disconnecting the power supply, the radio navigation system is ready to be used again once the power supply is connected. The anti-theft code does not need to be entered again. The anti-theft coding must be activated for the first time and the radio navigation system must be connected in the same vehicle.

Reactivating a locked radio/navigation system is only possible by entering correct radio code number for anti-theft protection.

Use the Vehicle Diagnostic Tester to get the anti-theft code. The radio card and the label on the radio that were used in the past are no longer used.

Note

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

  • Select "Radio navigation system".
  • Select "Functions"
  • Select and start "radio code inquiry".

Authorization will be requested from the system: Then the operating data, the VIN and the radio serial number of the radio and radio/navigation system will be automatically read out.
