Entering radio code??

Post by ed4ferrets » Fri Apr 14, 2006 10:43 pm

I've obtained the security code for the Blaupunkt Boston CC20 in my TXD but can't figure out how to enter it. If this radio is standard Cit issue perhaps one of the lads knows the drill?

From memory, press the number 1 button, once for 1, twice for 2 and so on untill you have the correct code in the display, then I think you press the ^ segment to activate.

I can check for certain tomorrow as I have the manual in the car.

Book says.

Switch on, "cod" will be displayed.

Press one of the preset buttons display will show "0000"

Use the preset buttons 1-4 to enter your code.

Press button 1 to enter the first digit "1" or "0"

Press buttons 2,3 or 4 as often as required untill the display shows the correct code.

Press the upper part of the search tuning rocker switch to activate.

:D

Oh well, it seems the radio has been recoded rather than decoded in the past and therefore the original code won't work :roll: Thanks anyway for the info Ken :wink:

N.B. If anyone else needs to decode a Blaupunkt I may be able to assist if provided with the serial number :wink:, and assuming it hasn't been REcoded by some moneygrabbing security bunch as mine was :evil:
