inputting radio code
 
I changed my battery out, and i need to input the radio code into my obc, but i have a 7-button obc and i dont know which buttons to press to input my code, Any help

The radio code does not go into your OBC, you press the numbered buttons on the radio deck itself.

You have 3 chances to input your radio code before it will be locked out. Once it is locked out, you either have to disconnect the battery for another three chances, or wait with the ignition on for 1 full hour. (yes, the ignition MUST be on.)

Ye i know one hour:huh?: thats why i wanted to make sure..in the manual it shows the code on the obc, but i just learned you input it into the radio, Thanks

There is a different CODE that can be inputted into a 11+ button OBC. This is for when you leave you vehicle you can input a security code as an ignition kill. You will not be able to start the car again without inputting the correct code when you come back to your vehicle.

man, i wish i could retrofit an 11 or 18 button OBC into my car, instead of the shitty 7-button.

BennyL, once 98dinan3 and i install my 18 button obc, and temp sells me an 18 button obc, you can have mine, probably for free*th-up* (its got some issues though:()

BennyL 03-07-2006 01:59 PM

what kind of issues?

the only thing is, that i remember justin saying that its VERY hard to retrofit an 18-button OBC into a car that has only the 7-button OBC. is this correct?

Euro_7 03-08-2006 12:19 AM

ye its hard to retrofit the 18 button obc into the 7 button obc, because there is alot of wire tapping to do as i learned from Justin before i bought the 18 button obc*shiner*

Justin e36 03-08-2006 12:51 AM

Yes, it's very difficult. Mainly to get this one silly "Check" button to work, which checks a number of your circuits.. (i.e. brake lights, tail lights, turn signals, head lights, washer fluid level, etc.) and tells you if there are any problems. A lot of wires to run to every corner of your car. :(

but mine's a 11 button, not 18 button. from what i remember, 7->11 button is direct swap (with juck norris' blessing)

its got some pixels that dont work well. other than that, it works 100%

Justin e36 03-08-2006 02:38 AM

it will work, but not 100%. the check button will not work. there will be no additional functions from the 8 button, other than having a nicer (though more problematic) display.

damn it, thats so depressing :(

so, is there a write-up on swapping from a 7-button to an 18-button? im just curious to see exactly HOW much work it is...

if not, then its ok. i just wanted to feed my curiosity.

Euro_7 03-09-2006 12:46 AM
