When you add an IDC-A09 changer to a pre-2004 car, you should not need to enter any code, it should just plug and play. If you have added an IDC-A09 changer to a post 2004 car the you have probably got the wrong changer. Post 2004 cars *usually* need the IDC-A04 changer, which looks identical.
The IDC-A04 uses CAN-bus while the IDC-A09 uses VAN-bus wiring. The two are not interchangable.
Hi, I know this is an old post, but I'll reply, so that other readers may get the benefit of my answer.
2004 was the year that Peugeot/Citroen changed from VAN bus to CAN bus wiring on their stereo's. If your car is before or early 2004 you will need the IDC-A09 blaupunkt in dash changer, which should just plug in and work straight away.
However, If your car is later 2004 onwards you will need the IDC-A04 Blaupunkt changer which will plug in and power up, but will not work properly untill you go to a peugeot dealer and they hook up some diagnostic software to tell the car a changer has been added. Both the IDC-A04 and A09 changers look identical.
I would say that you got the wrong changer, as the IDC-A09 changers in pre/early 2004 should just plug in and work.
Remember: Pre 2004 cars need IDC-A09 (plug and play) and Post 2004 cars need IDC-A04 changer (get pug dealer to reprogram cars computer)...its a costly mistake if you bought the wrong one!
After incorrectly entering the code 3 times, the unit locks for 60 minutes. To clear it, leave it connected to the head unit and the radio switched on for an hour. After that, switch the radio off, disconnect and reconnect the cd changer, and enter the correct code.
Hi firstly, thease units dont like cdr's at all so if you have cdr's in it then that could be 1st part of problem. there is a reapir kit out for them, but only fixes 8 out of 10 units.
other than that its a bin job. as a new mech is 160.00 fitted repair kit is about 60.00 plus the vat fitted.
The solution is to disconnect the head unit and the cd changer from each other and from the car itself, leave it for ten minutes. reconnect and turn the ignition on but not the car itself, enter radio code if has one and all should work.
