Did you buy it new or used? if you brought it used then it means that the old owner activated the anti theift option on the radio in which case you would have to ask the owner to get the code. if you brought it new then i sugest you call jensen or exchange it from the store you brought it from.

How do i get code for bluetooth

First make sure that Bluetooth is on on the CDE-143BT. Press and hold Audio/Setup (below and to the right side of the rotary encoder dial until you enter the Setup mode. Use the rotary dial to get to Bluetooth. Press the Search/Enter button (the center of the rotary dial). Then use the rotary encoder to go through the Bluetooth Settings menu. Press Search/Enter to toggle the current value. After Bluetooth is on, go to Visi M setting and make sure that it is on. Now, you need to go to the Bluetooth settings area of your cell phone when it is within range of the receiver. Tell it to pair with the receiver. Then when it asks for the code enter "0000". This code is hard encoded into the unit. See page 23 of the manual for the CDE-143BT for the code. The manual is available here: . Surrounding pages show setting the other Bluetooth settings.

Note: the receiver will be acting like a Bluetooth headset. That's why you need to enter the receiver's PIN on the phone.

I hope this helps.

AUX to work

Hello alex_maya21,

The AUX input on your CDE-9845 is on the back of the receiver. To use it, you need a cable with the appropriate connectors on each end. The receiver end needs to be a standard "mini plug" and the device end needs to match the output connector on your mp3 or iPod. There are many commercially available cables that you can plug in and run the device end under the dash to a convenient location. Almost any car audio retailer will have the correct cable or you can order one online from

Hope this helps.

Code missing

what you need is a code generating program.
These usually ask you to put in a serial number, located on the top or rear of the unit.
you enter this into the number generating software, and gives you the code.
Try e-bay. they usually have this sort of thing.
do a search for car radio code unlocking ( or similar )
Some default at set numbers i.e 1234 0r 0000.
search the web for details.
