CDR 23 radio question

Recommended Posts


I really like the appearance of the CRD 23 radio, and am interested in replacing a CDR 220 radio I have in an older Porsche ('94 928 GTS). CAN IT BE DONE??? IF so, how would I go about it? I have a friend with a CRD 23 that is readily available - is a code needed?

THANK YOU for your assistance to so many people with radio code problems etc. in the past, and hope you might know a way to make this work

Hmm... I don't know if it will work without a code.

A CDR-23 is a MOST bus (fiber optic) radio and it expects to get its code from the DME.

One of the older radios would likely be an easier update (i.e. CDR-220).

Sorry about the duplicate questions - new to this board!!

I find it very interesting that the CDR 23 radio is essentially identical in function, front face appearance, rear plug in configuration etc. to the Chrysler Crossfire radio also made by Becker. That radio does not use any code system, and it does have excellent AM/FM/CD performance.

I have a CDR 220 in the 928 GTS now. Just like the looks, operation, etc. of the CDR 23 better, and would like to install one. There's gotta be a way to by pass the MOST &n code requirement - Becker didn't even put it in the Crossfire radios.

Guess I'll contact Becker to see what they have to say. I can send them an e-mail from their website: www.beckerautosound.com

THANKS AGAIN for your assistance,

Gary Knox
