Radio Code

Recommended Posts

Being a new member I have been reading numerous posts.

I have recently acquired my 2005 S Type 2.5 V6 and have no idea what the radio code is.

I understand I will need this if the battery (which is a brand new Varta) fitted prior to collection, is disconnected for any reason.

How can I find the code for my Radio.

 

Many thanks and Regards

John

H John,

 have found these posts on the S type from may be helpful, My friend pad about £20 for code from dealer. 

Enter any code 3 times so that the display shows "PLEASE WAIT"

Simultaneously press ">>" "PTY" "A.MEM" should only take 2 or 3 seconds and the radio turns on.

Hope this helps and saves some one some money!!

This works on my 2003 x type

This definitely works in S-Types as well. It's included as part of the "Battery reset document" which is available for download from this forum

As an S-Type owner, you'll be aware (I guess) of how sensitive the electronics is to low battery voltage. You'll maybe not know though, what you're expected to do after dis-connecting and re-connecting the battery.

I've put together a PDF document which takes you through the procedure step by step. Nothing that isn't readily available elsewhere but just gathered together and (in my view) logically ordered into a single reference.

It also includes how to get the audio system working when you don't have the security code :yahoo:

I've been asked for it so many times that I though I'd make a thread just for access to that document so here it is:-

Have seen your document and downloaded it ready to read at some stage.

Car had a new Varta Battery fitted before I picked it up so I am hoping it will keep going alright for a while

Meanwhile I am looking for a best deal on obtaining a CTEK charger and conditioner, as recommended on the website, also considering the AA Solar Panel charger which I am thinking might be of better use to me.

I am being told that no connection direct connection to the battery is needed as it all happens through the EBOD port. I do not understand if this is correct and would appreciate any advice on the question.

Many thanks indeed.

Just realised I should have pressed the Quote, before replying.

Sorry about that.

Presumably my reply will be the message prior to this one.

Hi John,

found the AA video

 

Many thanks for the video.

That really answers the question. It does charge via the EOBD connection WITHOUT any direct crocodile clips to the battery. I feel this is probably a better bet for my requirements and am strongly favoured to go this route and purchase one of theses solar panel chargers.

Very appreciative of you posting this video for me.
