Why not replace your pads and rotors yourself? We are going to have another Work on Cars Day soon - and we will have folks there to help you. You can sign up here (just start a new post).

For your radio try 3008

or 3006

Hi Loren,

Both of the number are not working, "WAIT" show up again.

Please advise.

I'm looking forward to cars day, but I need to get the parts first.

Do you have any suggestion where I can get the parts instead of dealer?

Thank you!

Please read this whole thread - "Wait" is covered as well as "what if my code does not work...".

Sunset Porsche (link at the top of the page - Porsche Parts at Dealer Cost) sell Porsche parts at dealer cost plus 15%. I doubt you can find original parts cheaper anywhere else.

Thanks for the tip, Loren.

I call porsche dealer and they ask the VIN number and give the code right away. :lol:

Loren,

I think you are a real gentleman to answer all these lost radio code questions. I've never seen so many lost codes in my life...doesn't anyone keep factory documentation in their owner's manual wallet?

Again, here is my code card and the serial number is V 5005967. When I push the buttons on the radio it displays the same serial number.

The card has the code as 1217. That code works as it is the one I have been using for 8 years.

But the hit-or-miss decoder says 1115 is the code based on the V 5005967 serial number.

Sorry! I accidently posted on another topic already.

HELP!!

I bought a used car, and am trying to add the optional rear speakers. Instructions tell me I have to disconnect Battery before running wiring so I don't set off airbags. After looking around, I see I need a radio code. I have no manual, and have looked under hood. Nothing is written on my sticker.

Thank you for any help you can give,

I simply phoned Porsche with my VIN and they gave it to me.

It helped that I've been servicing with them for the past 5 years but I reckon I'm now getting some of my money back...

I bought a used 1999 Boxster recently; the radio previously worked & it has a Radio Code Card ..... but in clearing a CEL code [that another story .... ], I disconnected the battery for 5 minutes. Now it won't take the code..........

the card has >>>

Becker CDR 220

BE 4462

serial # Y5016498

says code is "1270" ............ anything I need to know why this might not now work?

I'll try the serial number search method I've read about in other links to make sure this is the right card for the currently installed radio............

Thank you for any help you can give,

Dux

      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.

      Welcome everyone to another installment highlighting the wonderful world of fragile Porsche parts!
       
      Have both 17" and 18" wheels and have recently lost the metal Center Cap logo medallion off of one wheel of each size.
      While removing the other center caps every remaining medallion fell right off in my hand.
      Metal medallion secured with a random dab of some type of adhesive.
       
      We have reached the end of lifespan of whatever adhesive the Center Cap supplier used to keep precious colored metal medallions stuck to those cheap plastic caps.
       
      Anyone know how to remove old adhesive?
      Anyone have any idea what adhesive to replace it with?
      Anyone know how much the Porsche/Piech families made selling replacement center caps last year?
       
      Remember when paying through the nose for your precious replacement Center Caps that the Porsche and Piech families are the 7th wealthiest oligarchs in the world per Wikipedia.

      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.
