It sounds like a security lock out. As the radio sensed the lose of power at the time of battery removal, it shut down into security mode. This is a security measure that, if it was stolen, it will be worthless to the thief.
To unlock, you will find an unlock code in the users manual. If not, call the dealership. This is how most high line auto radio's are. Such sensitive informations are not public, due to security reasons.

I hope that solves your Problem, If so kindly accept it.

Thank You,
Arjun.

Porsche carrera 4s,windows are both up,battery is disconnected,can't get the trunk open!


Behind the passenger side wheel covers, up towards the front bumper, is a stainless steel braided cable with a loop. Pull this to manually open the trunk. It is well hidden and an emergency solution to opening the trunk if the servo has failed, your fuse box power connection fails, or you have no power. Good luck

After replacing the battery on my Porsche Carrera 2000, I entered the wrong numbers a couple of times on the radio screen asking me to enter 4 digits and then the screen went on a WAIT signal. Now that I...


Yes - there is a solution here.

The problem here is that you must leave continuous power to the radio until the WAIT period is over. Any interruption to the power causes the countdown or wait period to start all over again. The secret is to ensure the key is turned in the ignition to accessories point I or the first point on the ignition that activates power to the radio.

If the key is not turned in the ignition as outlined, the radio will automatically shut off after one hour which is a power saving feature (which is great) but it also has a side effect in this case of shutting off the radio before the time limit has been reached!!

Obviously - as you must leave the key turned in the ignition during the wait period (which may be up to 4 hours) please ensure the vehicle is parked in a safe location and well away from any opportunistic thief.!!

Hope it helps or for anyone reading this in a similar situation - this information applies to many vehicles and radio types as many manufacturers have a similar security feature.


Additionally - for cheap code retrieval for Porsche and many other car radios please see this link.

Thanks for using FixYa.

You can recover the code at the following site without pulling the radio. The site will show you how to get the 8 digit serial number of the radio from the radio and then use that serial number to find your code. Takes about ten minutes. Look at the notes if you have trouble

Olio carrera 4s porsche


Usually the specs are located in the owners manual. It tells you the grade and amount of oil required on an oil change. If the specs are not in the owners manual, you can look at the oil fill port on the engine and normally has the recommended grade of oil. Otherwise, see if you can get your hands on a service manual. Good Luck.22
