Clarion Radio Code Required

Recommended Posts

RobScott

Hello all. 
I have just signed up and am brand new to this forum. 
I might ask a few stupid questions so please go easy on me!

I’m sure the answer is on here somewhere already but I have a Clarion Stereo which I have bench tested, it powers up ok but I don’t have a code for it.
Can anyone help me to decode it or let me know someone who can please?

I’m attaching a couple of photos which show the front panel and the sticker on the case which shows the serial number.

I've found the code for a couple of OE Clarion units by sequentially working through possibe codes. One took about 20 minutes to find, the other a couple of hours.  Someone may well have a less tedious method.

Got lucky with one taken from a scrapyard when I found the original white plastic credit card sized card with the code on behind the unit when I was taking it out.

I just went thru the same but

the OE stereo units issued to the 205's in Australia were Eurovox

and they're way easier to use than the annoying aftermarket versions

its obvious but just check all over the stereo, sometimes owners write the code in black texta or something

also sometimes the little white card is stuffed inside the fold out owners manual (if you've still got it) so check all thru that

in my case

a local peugeot dealer got the security code by checking the Serial number of the unit on their system

apparently they can also cross check it with the VIN of the car it came out of

Hi, if I tried this method of entering possible  codes one by one what keys do you need to press to go through each code please? Can you just repeat pressing the keys 1,2,3,4,5 forever and as soon as the unit detects the correct 4 digit code it will accept it?

Try 1542.

 

I've also had good luck with the forum below a few years ago with an old Becker radio I had in the 205 of which I had forgotten the code. https://www.ecoustics.com/cgi-bin/bbs/discus.pl

Basically, yes - start with 1111, clear the code by holding the "Band" button if it doesn't work, then try 1112, so on and so forth.  Can take a while if you're unlucky enough for your code to be in the 5000's but there's no lockout for too many incorrect codes :)

 

If you get stuck, pop the cover off the bottom of the unit and send me a picture showing the solder links on the PCB near to the microchip - I can decode it from that.

Is there a 12 digit code on another sticker somewhere? On the back of it probably starting with C************

Should have a barcode with it, if it’s there, can get the code.

No unfortunately it’s gone the only sticker on it is the one on the photo. It has the part number and serial number but no barcode.
