Lost Radio Code - post your request here

Recommended Posts

If it is like a 2003-2004 986 then there is no user code. There is a code in the radio that matches the code in the instrument cluster. If the codes don't match, such as when you replace a radio, then it will not work. To code the replacement radio you need to visit a dealer with a PIWIS. At least this is they way it had to be done with the 986 CDR-23.

I actually bought the code from http://www.car-audio-accessories.co.uk/ & they provided me with the 9287 or 9265 code.

But there is no way for me to input the code.....sending in the car to dealer will cost an arm/leg here in Singapore LOL...

So I hope some gurus here can help me out....

Thanks again for the quick reply!!!

The code can only be in the cluster with a PIWIS tester. So you need to find an independent shop with one or go to a dealer. There is no way around this.

Hi...

I just bought a 2001 Boxster and the owner had lost the code before letting the batt go dead last winter. I was getting ready to yank out the CR-220 to do the serial number thing and I found this Thread.

Any specific code numbers that I should try first???

Thanks, Bob

Hold down the TP button for at least 10 seconds after you turn the radio on. "Becker 1" will be displayed. Rotate the right knob (slowly) and it will display the Becker model number. Then rotate it again and the serial number should be displayed on the radio.

Write it down and post it here.

Right now I get a WAIT display. Will the 10 sec get me past that?? Also, I have a set of keys.....I inserted them and pulled until my fingers hurt bad...felt like I would break something! Should I get a set of gloves and just pull harder or am I forgeting something. Right now I just have a set of stuck keys in the dash!

Thanks much for the help.

Loren ....

I tried the 10 sec on the TP button and it worked. The serial number is Y5024942.

But I still have to get the keys out of there so I guess the radio unit has to get pulled out somehow. I'll need to get back in there later for some other work, so I'd better learn how to use the keys. I want to do a GT3 delete of the vertical console (I'm 6'3" and need the space).....The car has that fancy radio tuning panel that changes the mode of sound etc, etc. I haven't heard my sound system yet, so I don't know itf it's worth trying to salvage that optional unit or how I would do that with the GT3 mod done. Lots to learn! Any advice on that?

Thanks again, Bob

Oh, please CANCEL that request for the radio code... I got the serial number, mustered enough strength to yank the radio out, called two Porsche dealers and got the @#$%^ code. It works fine now.

But I have no instruction book for that reverb, sound mode thingy that is mounted under my cd storage rack. I have to admit it sounds good when playing with all the buttons, but I really don't know what I'm doing without user manual. The thing may have to hit the road (e-Bay) if I do the GT3 delete! Any idea where I can find an user manual for the optional thingy????

Thanks, bob

Hey Loren, I did follow the procedure to get the info...

did it again to double check for good measure:

Becker 1

Type 4462

Ser# W5002680

31/98

The model is a cdr220...

The wait screen is still on. Does the radio have to be on for 1 hour for it to go off?

Look at the list of folks who were able to get their radios working again just by asking Loren.....he helped me too...when I was on the road. I think that alone is worth the small pittance of being a paid member to this forum....don't you????

4549 works!

Once I left the radio on for 1 hour I was able to enter it.

My radio hasn't yet been disabled but I know it will be sooner or later. I'm the 3rd owner of this '03 Boxster S & the radio code has been long lost. I've tried the above technique & nothing happens other then "MUTE" being constantly displayed.

Is there another way to get the above information? I know the radio is a CDR23 with separate amp (fiber optic?) up front. But I don't know which amp it is. (4 or 6-channel -- unless they're all 6-channel if it's FO.)

A CDR-23 does not need a code. The code is registered in the DME - so as long as the same radio stays with the same car no action is needed.

If the radio were to be replaced then the DME would need to be updated to the new radio.

okay, so i've just bought a 1999 boxster, as you may have guessed by my name. Unfortunately, the previous owner doesn't know the radio code, and i've seen all the posts you've added with a bunch of numbers, could someone tell me what these numbers are, and how to find them? so far i've found this:

it's a CDR-210

on the back it said "V-" with this in front of it; 620815

and on the back of the radio manual it says "WKD 478 724 97", does this mean anything?

While I have your attention, how do you find the radios' serial number? I hear there's a special tool to remove the radio and find the number, is that true?

thanks,

Andrew

My program does not always work. It works maybe 95% of the time but I have no expanation why it doesn't always work.

At this point you will need to contact a dealer or Becker. Becker charges to lookup your code and some dealers do too.

      Which radios fitted to Porsche can have their unlock code recovered through serial number?
      - CR-220/CDR-220 - Becker
      - CR-210/CDR-210 - Becker
      - Traffic Pro NAV/CD - Becker

      Which radios can not have their unlock code recovered through serial number?
      - CR1 - Alpine
      - CDR-23/24 (or later) - Becker
      - PCM (Porsche Communication Management) – Siemens & Becker

      How to get your radio serial number?
      CR-220/CDR-220:
      Hold down the TP button for at least 10 seconds after you turn the radio on. "Becker 1" will be displayed. Rotate the right knob (slowly) and it will display the Becker model number. Then rotate it again and the serial number should be displayed on the radio.
      Or, if the radio is out of the car the then the serial number is on the label.

      CR-210/CDR-210:
      Press tone, then 8 and 0 simultaneously. "Becker" appears. Press station up arrow on right. "PR-VERS" appears. Press one of the numbered buttons below the display, directly below the LCD arrowheads (try a few). The model number will appear. Press station up arrow on right. "SERIAL N" will appear. Press the numbered button again. The serial number will appear.
      Or, if the radio is out of the car the then the serial number is on the label.

      CDR-23 (or later):
      These radios do not have a security code - that is, not that the user enters.
      These radios are security tested on the MOST (fiber optic bus) system to see if they are the "programmed" radio. The radios are programmed and recognized by the car’s DME and can only be replaced by a shop with a PST2 or PIWIS. These radios will not request a code when battery power is disconnected.

      Traffic Pro:
      Select the Service Menu, press NAV and multifunction key 10 simultaneously in radio mode. Use multifunction keys Nxt and Prv or turn the right control knob to select the individual items.
      You can move through the following items:
      - Model-No.
      - Serial-No. <-- this is what we need
      - Changer Reset
      - GAL
      - Radio Software
      - Radio Bolo
      - Navi Rom
      - Navi Flash
      - RTC Value
      To quit the service menu, press END.

      I get a WAIT on the display - what do I do?
      You have to wait at least 30 minutes before trying again.

      The suggested number did not work - what do I do now?
      Most often when the code we give you does not work it is because the serial number came from an old card in the car rather than from the procedure stated above - or a typo in the serial number submitted. Double check the serial number you submitted using the procedure above again.
      If that does not work then you will need to contact a dealer or Becker. Becker charges to look up your code and some dealers also charge.
      Our program works maybe 99.9% of the time but we have no explanation why it doesn't always work.

      Can you give me a code for my PCM?
      These units are manufactured jointly by Siemens and Becker, and the only place where you can get the codes required is from the dealer/ OPC. The PCM’s require two codes, the ICS/Siemens code, and a Becker code. The ICS is the first code requested.
      Sorry, the only place you can get a PCM code is from a dealer/ OPC.

      Can I post my VIN to get a code?
      We do NOT need your VIN - only your radio serial number.

      Where can I post my lost code request?
      Please post your request here:
      Lost Radio Code - post your request here

      Please DO NOT PM me or email me (or anyone else helping with the codes) your radio code request - we will only answer requests in that one thread.

      I have a 2003 Boxster with the CDR23 radio and external amplifier mounted in the front trunk.  There are two multi-pin connectors, a fiber optic connector and an antenna connector on the rear of the head unit.  The display on the head unit in the car seems to be fine as the display appears to be working as it should.  The problem is no sound out of any speakers.  The problem was intermittent for quite a while as sometimes when I started the car I would have sound from  the speakers and other times no sound.  Sometimes I would be driving and the sound would suddenly just quit.  Now there is no sound at all, but the head unit display still appears to be working ok.  Does anyone have any suggestions as to what might be the problem?

      I have a 2004 Porsche Cayenne S with a Becker radio and Bose system. I understand the radio is a PCM 2. The radio is a CBR23 E1. I had a Bluetooth adapter installed and now my radio immediately goes into PROTECT mode. I tried downloaded the unlock code from an internet service, but there is no place or time for me to enter it in to radio. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
