I am a new member here, and had the issue with a dead battery, code needed and not provided by previous owner (2002 996 Carrera) and all the suggested codes, etc. to no avail. I successfully found my code by utilizing the trick of getting the serial number and model code (another four digit number) with the directions listed on the Becker website. Just put Becker in your browser, find their main website, and on the left side of the page there is an option for "Codes". Click there, then find "Porsche" vs MB, etc... and you will eventually see that they (for a $35 fee of course) email you your code IF you provide those serial numbers and model code (see above). They describe the trick involved in turning on the power, pushing one of the top buttons, seeing "Becker 1" then turning the right hand knob selector to the right to get to the model code and serial number. This was the process I used, and they emailed me my code pretty quickly, and I am getting a new physical card with the code on it in the mail. My radio was the radio provide with the "Advanced Technic Package" option for the 911 in 2002, and the face of the radio simply said Porsche, CDR-220. It is imperative that you find the box to send them a message with your radio info, and this took some looking around, but even I found it (pretty computer handicapped). There is an option to go through Ebay to get the code from Becker. So I am back in business, and feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if I can better explain the process. The individual with the totally blank screen may have some power issue (check fuse) or some fault within the radio. I am told the serial number is physically on the unit, under the front hood, but I haven't taken mine out. I was able to get the serial number as described above. I would start by trying to define who actually made the radio, and if it's a Becker, I'd go to their website as I did for code recovery, and find some tech help on that radio. Any info found on the radio will help identify the model number. I hope this is some value to someone with radio issues. I read a lot of suggestions, code hints, etc. to no avail.
I just bought a 2002 911 996, and I see the sticker includes the Technic Package. I just wonder what that includes, if anyone has that info.
