Try 4736

Unfortunately it did not work. I double checked the S/N, and it is T5003475

I did some looking on the net last evening and found a 'decoder' that would provide other possible keys, and I tried: 4746, 4836, 5736, 4848, 5746, 5836, 5846, 4735, 7081, 7091, 7181, and 8081.

None of them worked either. Can you suggest any other possible keys? Or alternatives other than going to the dealership?

thank you!

Did you use the process in the FAQ to have the serial number readout on the display?

Please do so and give me the correct serial number.

@boxster_nut

4736 is the correct original code for the serial number given. (I've verified this with two separate sources)

Sometimes reading serial numbers from radio displays can give wrong numbers, just due to deteriation of the displays...

I'd remove the radio, and check the serial number printed on the label, attached to the metal casing..

You've explained that you've entered 12 wrong codes.... Did the radio go into time lock?

Hi, Loren, I've got a locked radio in my 2000 S (if you read my last post, you know why already!).

CDR-32

Type: 4667

S/N: Y5022262

Any help would be awesome. Thanks!

EDIT: Nevermind. I'm an idiot and didn't read the "READ ME FIRST" on the 986 main forum page. My model isn't unlockable by serial number, according to the FAQ. My apologies.

A CDR-32 will not likely work at all in a pre-2003 model year car.

Oh, it works alright. I discovered the code under the mat under the front hood. It was in there with the number for Porsche Assistance on a lovely plastic card.

That particular unit might not have been in the car when it was made, but it most definitely works. Now that I've unlocked it, it works beautifully! :)

      My CR-220 plays the FM & AM & Cassette, doesn't play the 6 Pack CDs. Faceplate does not display, all presets work, and equalizer.  Is the problem in the face plate or radio?  Will getting another faceplate work with this radio?  Will it change the radio code.
