Radio/navigation system: entering PIN
of anti-theft coding and storing local ra‐
dio stations to station buttons
The anti-theft coding electronically prevents unauthorized per‐
sons from operating the unit after it has been removed from
vehicle. The anti-theft codes are also called radio codes or se‐
curity codes. Security code means that each unit with an anti-theft
coding is programmed with its own code number. This security
code is not active when leaving the factory. The security code is
found on the unit card, if fitted. If the unit card is not fitted, the
security code can be read using vehicle diagnostic tester of a
central database ⇒ page 123 .
If an incorrect code number is entered when releasing the elec‐
tronic lock, the whole procedure can be repeated once. If an
incorrect code number is entered again, the unit is locked for
about one hour. That means, it cannot be used. After one hour,
during which time the unit must remain switched on, the display
extinguishes. The electronic lock can be released as described
above. The cycle two attempts, one hour lock applies again.
