Well, you didn't read this thread did you...

WAIT has been explained here several times. You need to drive the car to clear the WAIT message.

I have a CDR-21

My vin is WPOAA2991XS623320

Any idea what my code is?

THANKS!

Try 2742

or

2740

Hi Loren,

Sorry but the codes did not work. I also tried 2740, 2741, 2742, 2743, 2744, 2739, and 2738. Those did not work either.

In addition my radio is actually CDR-210.There is also a number when i take the radio face out. That number is 228012516272189905.

Is there any other information you need? Are there any numbers you would suggest?

Thanks a lot again in advanced!

EDIT--- My car is also a 1999 Porsche C2. The manufactured date was in July 1998. It is a US car if that helps as well.

Sorry, you will need to call a dealer or Becker.

Hello I just joined and just wanted to post to say thanks to this great forum and the mods and admins here. A cool forum I look forward to exploring and learning from.

:renntech:

I was going to ask for a radio code and was waiting for it to clear because I tried some that were posted and got locked out with the "wait" message.

Then I read a post that said that sometimes the mechanics write the code on the sticker under the front truck lid. So I opened my front trunk lid and lo and behold there were the 4 digits I needed written in pen on the sticker! They worked like a charm.

In short I thought I would write this as a first place to look for your code if you've bought a used Porsche as I had. Otherwise it seems like Loren's codes do the trick for most people.

I do still have a question for future reference though.

I still want to look up the radio serial number. Now that I've already unlocked it can I still look it up?

I tried the instructions for displaying it, but all that did was change the radio stations (since it's unlocked).

I have the CR-210 Model with the CD changer.

Thanks,

Hope this information is adequate to locate the 4 digit radio code

Much appreciated. :renntech:

      Installed a new alpine radio to replace my factory Porsche radio I kept the factory Bose sound system and the factory steering wheel controls still work!
      I think it looks pretty nice, very ecstatic about the new radio look.
      Easy to do

      When I turn the radio on, all it says is 'wait'. How do I get to the 'code' screen?
      I have a type 4462
      Serial # 15077232
      What would the code be to unlock radio?
      Any help would be appreciated, thank you!

      Hello. This is my first time posting as this is my first issue with my 2006 Cayenne S and this is also my first Porsche. The vehicle had an aftermarket radio in it when I purchased it and I changed that radio for another one that supported Apple CarPlay. both units are made by pioneer and after looking at the backs of them it appears to be plug and play. I changed everything out and fired it up and everything was great. No issues or errors and the sound worked fine and calls worked fine. The previous installer used only twisted ends and electrical tape to secure the wiring so I took the wiring apart and used wire nuts to make sure nothing came apart while it was being installed and for longevity. After starting the car back up, I received a brake proportioning fault and an oil pressure fault and it told me workshop fault as well. I pulled fuse 40 as I heard it resets the system and plugged it back in. The brake proportioning fault is gone but the oil pressure fault remains. I double checked my wiring work to make sure that I was not missing anything and nothing had come back apart. Everything is indeed attached and plugged in. 
       
      Now that I have finished my long-winded story, was this fault caused because I knocked something loose or because I left the fiber optic cabling unplugged for too long. I noticed that there was a red light coming from the input and of the fiber optic cabling a couple of times while I was rewiring it. Do I just need to reset this system using a better method or do you think something is wrong with it? 
       
      Any help would be appreciated and I intend on donating to this forum and website as it seems to be a true source of knowledge and help for the DIY Porsche enthusiast. Thank you in advance and I look forward to your responses.

      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.
