If an audio unit with theft protection is disconnected from electrical power, you must enter a unique code number into the unit or it will not work. This code and the audio unit’s serial number are listed on the anti-theft ID card that comes with the vehicle. If this card is lost, you must obtain the audio unit serial number in order to get the radio code (some people say that they have found the code on a sticker inside the glove compartment, but I wouldn’t count on that). Some newer vehicles allow you to retrieve the audio unit serial number electronically from the radio. Refer to your owner’s manual for the specific procedure (the following usually will work: Turn the radio off. Push the preset 1, preset 6, and power buttons at the same time, then quickly release.)
Once you have the audio unit serial number, you can call Auto Customer Service at (800) 999-1009 or have the dealer look up the radio code.
Hope this helps you understand the process.

SOURCE: 2000 Mitsubishi Mirage--Changed battery, code displayed on car radio screen; played with entering numbers, pushed the audio button, now OFF is displayed. What to do?

If you entered the incorrect code several times you may have ruined your chances of getting radio to work. On vehicles with anti theft radio when the battery is disconnected or the vehicle looses power the radio licks and to enable it a code is needed. The dealer may be able to help you but they would need certain information. Sometimes the vin of the car or some times the radio has to be removed to get the serial number. But if the wrong code is entered after so many attempts the radio becomes completely disable. To the point where you will not be prompted to enter a code.

SOURCE: Why do I have to push the reset button before operating for the first time on Boss Audio 648UA

Because when the unit was built, where ever that might be in the world the clock an other systems were set for their area. A disk was run through telling the processor certain things to do an a technician adjusted what ever needed correcting. So a reset of the timing an processing chips are needed.

How to reset screen


Not sure which model you have, but on most Boss models there is a little button on the front of the unit that you need to push with a pen. The button may say RES next to it. It also may be in the back of the unit.
Somewhere on the unit there is a button! Push it!
Find your manual using the link below if you can't find the button.

Usb is always loading on boss bv9993


Yes, I just got this unit and installed it today. The reason for this is this unit isn't capable of playing the ipods. You have to put the music on a flash drive to use the usb function. Which to me wasn't a big deal because I only use my ipod in my car anyway. The bv9999bi is the newer model of this unit and can play ipods. But i wasn't going to send this one back to get that one cause then I would have to pay for reinstallation when I could just put the songs on a flash drive. I love this unit btw.

Boss audio


Either the radio is bad out of the box (Very possible with the BOSS brand) or you car has factory amplifiers that need to be turned on. This is aaauming ther sound system played prior to the installation of the new radio. Most vehicles you can power up the amplifiers simply by connecting the BLUE remote turn on wire in the harness, but can get tricky in some vehicles.
Post the year make, and model of your car, and I can shoot you some odds/info about factory amplifiers.

Bypass parking brake wire


Boss Audio is the easiest in-dash DVD on the market to bypass; all you do is ground the ebrake wire. I recently installed 12 Boss Audio in-dash BV-7300's and did this to all of the decks problem solved. By the way I did this because they were in the back of limousines where the driver couldn't ever even see one of them while he was driving. I don't think there will be a problem, try it.
