Won't power up.
Displays SEC / Help
Then SEC / 8D201399
Note the serial number is CD201399.
All Eclipse brand radios have a feature called ESN (Eclipse Security
Network) installed. This means a Key CD may be inserted into the head
unit so that if the unit is stolen or battey is disconnected from the
unit you will have to enter the key CD to unlock the unit.
For example, lets say you purchased this unit from bestbuy. You
installed it in your car and you wanted to activate the ESN security
feature. You need to choose anyone of your cd's from your collection,
lets say you chose The Offsping, Conspiracy of One. Input the disc hit
the correct buttons ( I'll explain those later) and your Eclipse 54400's
ESN is active.
Now, your 54400 is stolen a week later, the thief will plug in the 54400
into his car and it will show SEC [disc], so he/she will insert a cd
and it will say [ERR]. If he or she does this 5 times it will show [call
800] which will lead them to Eclipse customer service, but you will
have already called eclipse and told them that your unit was stolen.
Whether you get your head unit back is highly doubtful but nobody else
will be able to use it.
Now for your answer, to activate ESN:
1.Turn the vehicles ignition on and press the power button 2. Press and
hold Radio station preset 1 and the FM-AM button for more than one
second 3. Insert the CD of your choice. A [SEC] message will now aooear
on the screen and ESN is active. Anytime the unit loses power you will
have to reinsert the key cd.
To deactivate the ESN feature:
1. Turn the vehicles ignition on and press the power button or the FM-AM
button (make sure the tuner is on). 2. Press and hold the radio station
preset button 1 and the FM-AM for more than one second. 3.Once the
display flashes [disc] insert the key cd you selected to activate the
ESN. The display should now read [CnCl]. The ESN is now deactivated.
To resume normal operation after the power has been disconnected to the unit:
1. Wait for the dispaly to read [disc]. 2. Insert you key cd, if the
correct CD is inserted your display will read [---] and the cd will
begin to play. If the wrong CD is inserted it will display [Err]. If you
insert the wrong CD 5 times it will say [call 800] and then you have to
send the unit to eclipse to have it rest. Good Luck!
How to read the Electronic Serial Number:
1. Turn the vehicles power on. Prss the FM-AM button. 2. Press radio
preset button 4 and the FM-AM button for more than a second and the
display should show your 8 digit serial number. This number is to
identify your unit if it is recovered after being stolen. Yep, that will
mind that the "security code" in a radio basically fulfills this
function, ensure that in case of theft, the computer does not work in
another vehicle; I didnt know there was a website to get the radio codes. Before you pay anyone to get your radio security code, I recommend you
get on the internet, Eclipse dealers, ask for the parts
counter, tell them you need your radio code, have your serial number
handy as well as all other numbers off the radio housing.
1-800-233-2216 (Fujitsu ten) and they will assist you in the removal of
the security code for a $25 charge. the number being displayed is
probably the serial number of your unit. If you can remove your radio
the SN will be on a tag.
Hope this helps.
