PM sent.

But some advice...

Those of you with coded radios, why not write the code on a piece of masking tape and stick it on the underside of the driver armrest?

That way, it's accessible and not readily available to a thief. Not that any thief worth his salt would want one of these 10 y.o. radios anyway.

If you do not know your code now, use the search function here to learn how to readout your serial # from the faceplate display. If you PM me with it, I have the software to decipher it.

Cheers!

Garage
Check your option sticker on the front hood, sometimes owners and even dealers have been known to write it down there.

Any dealer can look it up for you on IPAS.

On one of the Rennlist forums the founder/moderator can get your code for you. You will need to follow the process to get your radio model number etc... Its a great service.

Do the right thing. If they get the code for you, make a donation to the site. Getting the code elsewhere would cost you in terms of time/cash/stress. These forums are invaluable and we all have an interest in keepIng them afloat!

You didn't say whether you looked in your owner's packet. It should be in there in a small envelope. It's a credit card sized card with the information.

Go where you want, but I have the same software that Loren does. I can decode almost any Becker radio.

Cheers!

Denver-
I looked everywhere: manual, trunk, frunk, doors....nothing found. Bought my Box used 5-years ago.

Lil Bastard-

thanks in advance
