INTRODUCTION
The fixed radio, fitted with cassette player (radio with cassette player) or with Compact Disc player and parametric sound equalizer (radio with Compact Disc player), has
been designed to suit the specific characteristics of the passenger compartment, with
a personalised design that matches the style
of the dashboard.
The radio is installed in a user-friendly position for the driver and passenger and the
graphics on the front panel make location
of the controls quick, facilitating use.
The CD-Changer, if present, is housed in
the right-hand side of the boot.
To increase security against theft, the set
is fitted with a protection system which
makes its use possible only on the car on
which it was originally installed.
The instructions for use are given below
which you are advised to read carefully. The
instructions also include how to control the
CD-Changer through the radio. For the instructions for use of the CD-Changer, refer
to the specific manual.

ADVICE
Reception conditions
Road safety
Reception conditions change constantly
when travelling. Reception may be disturbed
by the presence of mountains, buildings or
bridges particular if far away from the broadcasting transmitter.
You are advised to learn how to use the
various radio functions (e.g.: storing stations)
before starting to drive.
WARNING During the reception of traffic information, the volume may be higher
than normal.
Care and maintenance
WARNING
Too high a volume when
driving can put the driver’s
life at risk and that of other people. Therefore the volume should
always be adjusted in such a way
that it is always possible to hear
the noises of the surrounding environment (e.g.: horns, ambulance,
police sirens, etc.).
The radio is made in such a way that it
does not require particular maintenance. In
the event of a failure, contact Alfa Romeo
Authorised Services.
To clean the front panel only use a soft,
antistatic cloth. Cleaning and polishing products might spoil the surface.
Cassettes
To obtain optimum playing conditions we
give the following advice:
– do not use poor quality cassettes, with
distortions or labels detached;
– never leave the cassette in the radio
when not in use;
– do not lubricate the cassette mechanism;
– do not touch the player head with magnetic or hard objects.
Compact Discs
– never insert other objects in the cassette
slot;
Remember that dirt, marks or distortion on
Compact Disc can cause skipping. For top
performance conditions, we give the following advice:
– do not expose cassettes to the sun or
high temperatures;
– Only use Compact Discs which have the
following brand:
– put cassettes back in their boxes after
use;
– Carefully clean all Compact Discs of fingerprints and dust using a soft cloth. Support Compact Discs from the outer circumference and clean from the centre outwards.
– over time, dirt on the playing head
caused by tapes may reduce the high notes
when playing. You are therefore advised to
clean the head routinely using a special
cleaner taper of the non abrasive type;
– After use, put Compact Discs back in
their container, to avoid marks or scratches
that may cause skipping when playing.
– Do not expose Compact Discs to direct
sunlight, high temperatures or damp for prolonged lengths of time to prevent them from
bending.
– Do not stick labels or write on the recorded surface of Compact Discs.
To remove a Compact Disc from its container, press the centre and raise the disc
carefully, holding it by the outer circumference.
Removing the disc
Proper way to hold
the compact disc
– preferably use C-60 cassettes and in any
case no longer than C-90 to ensure the best
playing conditions;
– avoid inserting cassettes with damaged
tapes in the radio, especially if using C-90
cassettes, as the tape might come out and
get stuck;
– Never use chemical products for cleaning (e.g. spray cans, antistatic or thinners)
as they might damage the surface of Compact Discs.
Always hold Compact Discs by the outer
circumference. Never touch the surface.
5
To remove fingerprints and dust, use a soft
cloth starting from the centre of the Compact Disc outwards.
No
WARNING Do not use the protective
sheets for CD in commerce or discs with stabilisers, etc. as they might get stuck in the
internal mechanism and damage the disc.
Do not use highly scratched, cracked, or
distorted discs, etc. The use of these discs
will involve malfunctioning or damage to the
player.
WARNING If the CD is copy-protected,
the system may need few seconds before
starting to play it.
No
Notes on Compact Discs
New discs may be rough around the edges.
When these discs are used, the player might
not work or the sound might skip. To remove
the roughness from the edge of the disc use
a ball-point pent, etc.
Do not stick labels on the surface of the
Compact Disc or write on the surface with
pens or pencils.
No
Do not expose Compact Discs to direct sunlight or any source of heat.
Ball-point pen
No
Roughness
Do not use solvents like stain removers,
antistatic sprays or thinners in commerce for
cleaning Compact Discs.
No
To obtain the best sound quality, use original CD supports. Correct operation is not ensured if not correctly written CD-R/RW supports and/or with capacity higher than 650
MB are used.

ANTITHEFT PROTECTION
Entering the secret code
The radio is fitted with an antitheft protection system based on the entry of the secret code associated to each set. During the
code entry procedure the display shows the
word “CODE”. The set will not work until
the correct code is entered.
Entry of the secret code is required to allow the radio to work each time it is connected to the car electric system.
This way the protection system makes the
radio unusable after removal from the dashboard in the case of theft.
Connecting the radio to the car supply, the
display shows the word “CODE” for about
2 seconds, followed by four dashes “- - -”.
The secret code comprises four figures from
1 to 6, each corresponding to one of the
dashes.
To enter the first digit of the code, press
the corresponding button of the preset stations (from 1 to 6). Enter the other code
digits in the same way.
If the four figures are not entered within
20 seconds, the display shows the word
“CODE” for 2 seconds and then four dashes “- - - -”. This is not to be considered
as an incorrect code entry.
SOUND SYSTEM WITH CASSETTE PLAYER
WARNING
On multimedia CDs in addition to sound tracks also
data tracks are recorded. Playing
one of these CDs may cause rustling
and such a volume as to compromise road safety, as well as causing damage to the final stages and
speakers.
9
SOUND SYSTEM WITH CASSETTE PLAYER
After entering the fourth digit (within 20
seconds), the radio starts working.
If a wrong code is entered, the radio
sounds a beep, the display shows the word
“CODE” for 2 seconds and then four dashes “- - - -” to warn the user that it is necessary to enter the correct code.
Every time the user enters a wrong code,
the waiting time increases gradually (1 min,
2 min, 4 min, 8 min, 16 min, 30 min, 1h,
2h, 4h, 8h, 16h, 24h) until reaching a maximum of 24 hours.
The waiting time will be shown on the display with the word “WAIT”. When this
goes off it is possible to start the new code
entry procedure.
AF (Alternative Frequency)
Function that allows the radio to stay tuned
on the FM station selected also passing
through areas served by transmitters with
different frequencies.
In fact the RDS system keeps the intensity and quality of the signal received under
control, automatically switching tuning on
the frequency of the transmitter that is sending the strongest signal.
Autoreverse
Function that makes it possible to listen to
both sides of the tape without having to turn
the cassette over.
Code Card
This the document that certifies possession
of the radio. The Code Card contains the radio model, serial number and secret code.
WARNING Keep the Code Card carefully to be able to give the related data to the
competent authorities in the event of theft.

Manual station storage
The station being heard can be stored in
the range selected with buttons (18),
(17), (16), (15), (14), (13) numbered
from 1 to 6.
If the TA function is on (traffic information),
only the stations that send traffic information will be stored. This function may also
be turned on when listening to a cassette or
Compact Disc.
Keep one of these buttons pressed (from
1 to 6) until receiving the confirmation
beep. After storage, the display shows the
number of the button with which the station
has been stored.
During automatic storage the display
shows the wording “A-STORE”. To interrupt the storage process press the “BN” button again (7): the radio will automatically
tune the station heard before activation of
the Autostore function.
Autostore function (automatic
station storage)
At the end of the Autostore function the radio automatically tunes on the first preset
station in the FM1 band.
To switch on the Autostore function keep
the “BN” button pressed (7) until hearing the confirmation beep. With this function the radio automatically stores the stations with the strongest signal in decreasing
order of intensity of the FMT frequency
band.
WARNING Activating the Autostore function cancels the stations stored previously in
the FMT band.
On buttons (18), (17), (16), (15),
(14), (13) numbered from 1 to 6, the stations are automatically stored that give a
strong signal in that moment in the preset
band.
After storage the radio automatically tunes
on the frequency stored on button 1 (18).
Every station is stored only once, except
in the case of regional programmes which
in certain cases might be stored twice.
During the automatic storage process the
display shows the wording “A-STORE”.
22
The behaviour of the set during Autostore
is as follows:
– at the beginning of the Autostore function all the other functions are disabled
– any change in volume is not shown on
the display
– pressing one of the radio function buttons (e.g. “PTY” (2), “˙˙” (9), “¯¯”
(12), (18), (17), (16), (15), (14),
(13) the automatic storage process is interrupted, the last station heard before Autostore was turned on is tuned and the function associated with the button pressed is
run
– pressing “AF-TA” (1) during automatic storage will interrupt it, the TA function (traffic information) will be turned
on/off and a new automatic storage process
will be started
– changing the listening source (Radio,
Cassette, CD-Changer) during automatic storage will not interrupt the Autostore function.
Listening to stored stations
Proceed as follows:
– select the required frequency band (FM,
MW, LW)
– briefly press one of the six station storage buttons.
The display will show the number that corresponds to the button.
In bands FM1, FM2 and FMT, if reception
is poor and the AF alternative frequency
search function is active, the station with the
strongest signal that is broadcasting the
same programme will be sought automatically.
AF function
(alternative frequency search)
Within the RDS system the radio can work
in two different modes:
– AF ON: alternative frequency search
on
– AF OFF: alternative frequency search
off.
When the signal of the RDS station tuned
weakens, the following two cases may occur:
– With AF ON the RDS system activates
automatic tuning of the optimum frequency
of the station chosen, with the stations enabled, therefore the radio is automatically
tuned to the station with the strongest signal that is broadcasting the same programme. During the journey it will thus be
possible to continue listening to the station
chosen without having to change the frequency when changing area. Of course, the
station being listened to must be receivable
in the area the car is crossing.
– With AF OFF the radio will not tune the
strongest station automatically and it will
have to be found manually using the tuner
buttons.
To tune alternative frequency search
on/off, keep the “AF-TA” button (1)
pressed until hearing the beep. The name
RDS (if available) stays on the display and
if the AF function has been turned on the
symbol “AF” is shown.
If the radio is working in the AM band,
when the “AF-TA” (1) is pressed, it passes to the FM band on the last station selected.
TA function
(traffic information)
Some stations in the FM band (FM1, FM2
and FMT) are enabled to also broadcast information about traffic conditions. In this
case the display shows the wording “TP”.
To turn the TA (traffic information) function on/off, briefly press (less than 1 second) the “AF-TA” button (1).
SOUND SYSTEM WITH CASSETTE PLAYER
WARNING Sometimes the Autostore
function is unable to find 6 stations with a
strong signal. In this case, the free preset buttons will be shown on the display, for about
2 seconds, by 4 dashes and the last station
heard will be returned.
The listening conditions and information
given on the display may be the following:
– TA and TP: if tuned to a station that
sends traffic information and the traffic information function is on
– TP: if tuned to a station that sends traffic information but the traffic information
is off
23
SOUND SYSTEM WITH CASSETTE PLAYER
– TA(*): the traffic information function
is on but the radio is tuned to a station that
does not give traffic information
The operations to be carried out for each
of the three above conditions are listed below.
– TA and TP not shown on the display:
the radio is tuned to a station that does not
give traffic information and the traffic information function is off.
a) To receive stations enabled to broadcast traffic information:
(*) If the TA traffic information function is on,
but the radio station chosen does not give traffic information, the device beeps every 30 seconds.
With the TA function (traffic information)
it is possible:
a) to search only RDS stations that transmit in the FM band, enabled to broadcast traffic information
b) receive traffic information even if the
cassette player or CD-Changer is in use
c) receive traffic information at a predefined minimum volume even with the
radio volume off.
24
– select band FM1, FM2 or FMT
– briefly press (less than 1 second) the
“AF-TA” button (1) so that the display
shows “TA”.
– press the tuner buttons “˙˙” (9) or
“¯¯” (12).
To store stations with TA on, carry out the
storage operations (see “Manual station
storage”).
b) If wishing to receive traffic information when listening to a cassette or Compact
Disc, before inserting the cassette or starting the CD-Changer, tune to a station enabled to broadcast traffic information (TP)
and activate the TA function. If while listening to the cassette or Compact Disc, this station broadcasts traffic information, the tape
or Compact Disc will be suspended temporarily and resumed again automatically
after the end of the message.
At the start of receiving traffic information
the display will briefly show the wording
“INFO TRA”, while the display continues giving further information (frequency,
name, time of CD etc.).
If the cassette player or CD-Changer are already working and at the same time you
want to receive traffic information, briefly
pressing (less than 1 second) the “AF-TA”
button (1) the radio tunes to the last station heard in the FM band, the TA traffic information function is activated and the traffic messages are transmitted. If the station
selected does not send traffic information,
the search for an enabled station starts automatically.
If wishing to interrupt the traffic information message, briefly press (less than 1 second) the “AF-TA” button (1) during transmission of the message.
c) To receive traffic information while not
listening to the radio:
– turn on the TA function briefly pressing
(less than 1 second) the “AF-TA” button
(1), so that the display shows “TA”
If the volume is changed during a traffic
bulletin the value is not shown on the display and the new value is kept only for the
bulletin in progress.
This way, if that station broadcasts traffic
information, this will be heard at a minimum
predefined volume.
During a traffic bulletin it is possible to turn
on sound adjustment with the “AUD” button (19). The new values set are also kept
at the end of the bulletin.
WARNING In certain countries radio stations exist which, even if the TP function is
on (the display shows “TP”), do not transmit traffic information.
If the radio is working in the AM band,
when the “AF-TA” button (1) is pressed,
it passes to the FM band on the last station heard. If the station selected does not
broadcast traffic information (wording “TP”
not shown on the display), the search for
an enabled station starts automatically.
The volume with which the traffic bulletin
is transmitted varies depending on the listening volume:
– listening volume below 30: traffic bulletin volume = 20 (fixed value)
– listening volume above 30: traffic bulletin volume the same as the listening volume + 1.
WARNING If the TA function is on and
the station tuned is not able to provide traffic information or it is no longer able to provide this information (the display will not
show “TP”), so after 1 minute in which the
radio is in these conditions:
– if listening to a cassette or Compact Disc
another station is sought that is enabled to
transmit traffic information
– if when listening to the radio a “beep”
is given to alert that it is not possible to receive traffic information; to interrupt it, it is
necessary to tune to a station that can provide traffic information or switch off the TA
function.
Emergency alarm reception
In the RDS mode the radio is set to receive
emergency announcements in the case of
exceptional circumstances or events that
may cause general danger (earthquakes,
floods, etc.), if they are broadcast by the
station tuned.
This function is activated automatically and
cannot be deactivated.
Program Type Function (PTY)

ANTITHEFT PROTECTION
Entering the secret code
If it is very cold inside the car and the CD
player is used a little after turning the heater
on, a film of damp may form on the Compact Disc or on the player optics and the
sound may not be perfect. In this case do
not use the CD player for at least an hour,
so that the condensation dissolves naturally and normal operation is resumed.
The radio is fitted with an antitheft protection system based on the entry of the secret code associated to each set.
Entry of the secret code is required to allow the radio to work each time it is connected to the car electric system.
During the code entry procedure the display shows the word “CODE”. The set will
not work until the correct code is entered.
Connecting the radio to the car supply, the
display shows the word “CODE” for about
2 seconds, followed by four dashes “- - -”.
Driving on rough roads with heavy vibrations may cause skipping when the CD player is working.
This way the protection system makes the
radio unusable after removal from the dashboard in the case of theft.
The secret code comprises four figures from
1 to 6, each corresponding to one of the
dashes.
To enter the first digit of the code, press
the corresponding button of the preset stations (from 1 to 6). Enter the other code
digits in the same way.
If the four figures are not entered within
20 seconds, the display shows the word
“CODE” for 2 seconds and then four dashes “- - - -”. This is not to be considered
as an incorrect code entry.
SOUND SYSTEM WITH COMPACT DISC PLAYER
CAUTIONS
After entering the fourth digit (within 20
seconds), the radio starts working.
41
SOUND SYSTEM WITH COMPACT DISC PLAYER
If a wrong code is entered, the radio
sounds a beep, the display shows the word
“CODE” for 2 seconds and then four dashes “- - - -” to warn the user that it is necessary to enter the correct code.
Every time the user enters a wrong code,
the waiting time increases gradually (1 min,
2 min, 4 min, 8 min, 16 min, 30 min, 1h,
2h, 4h, 8h, 16h, 24h) until reaching a maximum of 24 hours.
The waiting time will be shown on the display with the word “WAIT”. When this
goes off it is possible to start the new code
entry procedure.

This the document that certifies possession
of the radio. The Code Card contains the radio model, serial number and secret code.
WARNING Keep the Code Card carefully to be able to give the related data to the
competent authorities in the event of theft.

Manual station storage
Autostore function
(automatic station storage)
To switch on the Autostore function keep
the “BN” button pressed (13) until hearing the confirmation beep. With this function the radio automatically stores the stations with the strongest signal in decreasing
order of intensity of the FMT frequency
band.
WARNING Activating the Autostore function cancels the stations stored previously in
the FMT band.
If the TA function is on (traffic information),
only the stations that send traffic information will be stored. This function may also
be turned on when listening to a Compact
Disc or the CD-Changer.
During automatic storage the display
shows the wording “A-STORE”. To interrupt the storage process press the “BN”
(13) button again: the radio will automatically tune the station heard before activation of the Autostore function.
At the end of the Autostore function the radio automatically tunes on the first preset
station in the FM1 band.
On buttons (17), (16), (15), (12),
(11), (10) numbered from 1 to 6, the stations are automatically stored that give a
strong signal in that moment in the preset
band.
After storage the radio automatically tunes
on the frequency stored on button 1 (17).
Every station is stored only once, except
in the case of regional programmes which
in certain cases might be stored twice.
During the automatic storage process the
display shows the wording “A-STORE”.
– at the beginning of the Autostore function all the other functions are disabled
– any change in volume is not shown on
the display
– pressing one of the radio function buttons, e.g.: “PTY” (2), “˙˙” (7), “¯¯”
(4), (17), (16), (15), (12), (11),
(10) the automatic storage process is interrupted, the last station heard before Autostore was turned on is tuned and the function associated with the button pressed is
run
– pressing “AF-TA” (1) during automatic storage will interrupt it, the TA function (traffic information) will be turned
on/off and a new automatic storage process
will be started
– changing the listening source (Radio,
Compact Disc, CD-Changer) during automatic
storage will not interrupt the Autostore function.
WARNING Sometimes the Autostore
function is unable to find 6 stations with a
strong signal. In this case, the free preset buttons will be shown on the display, for about
2 seconds, by 4 dashes and the last station
heard will be returned.
Listening to stored stations
Proceed as follows:
– select the required frequency band (FM,
MW, LW)
– briefly press one of the six station storage buttons.
The display will show the number that corresponds to the button.
In bands FM1, FM2 and FMT, if reception
is poor and the AF alternative frequency
search function is active, the station with the
strongest signal that is broadcasting the
same programme will be sought automatically.
AF function
(alternative frequency search)
Within the RDS system the radio can work
in two different modes:
AF ON: alternative frequency search on
AF OFF: alternative frequency search off.
When the signal of the RDS station tuned
weakens, the following two cases may occur:
– With AF ON the RDS system activates
automatic tuning of the optimum frequency
of the station chosen, with the stations enabled, therefore the radio is automatically
tuned to the station with the strongest signal that is broadcasting the same programme. During the journey it will thus be
possible to continue listening to the station
chosen without having to change the frequency when changing area. Of course, the
station being listened to must be receivable
in the area the car is crossing.
SOUND SYSTEM WITH COMPACT DISC PLAYER
The behaviour of the set during Autostore
is as follows:
– With AF OFF the radio will not tune
the strongest station automatically and it
will have to be found manually using the
tuner buttons.
55
SOUND SYSTEM WITH COMPACT DISC PLAYER
To tune alternative frequency search AF
on/off, keep the “AF-TA” button (1)
pressed until hearing the beep. The name
RDS (if available) stays on the display and
if the AF function has been turned on the
symbol “AF” is shown.
If the radio is working in the AM band,
when the “AF-TA” (1) is pressed, it passes to the FM band on the last station selected.
TA function
(traffic information)
Some stations in the FM band (FM1, FM2
and FMT) are enabled to also broadcast information about traffic conditions. In this
case the display shows the wording “TP”.
To turn the TA (traffic information) function on/off, briefly press (less than 1 second) the “AF-TA” button (1).
The listening conditions and information
given on the display may be the following:
TA and TP: if tuned to a station that sends
traffic information and the traffic information function is on
TP: if tuned to a station that sends traffic information but the traffic information
is off
56
TA(*): the traffic information function is
on but the radio is tuned to a station that
does not give traffic information
The operations to be carried out for each
of the three above conditions are listed below.
TA and TP not shown on the display: the
radio is tuned to a station that does not give
traffic information and the traffic information function is off.
a) To receive stations enabled to broadcast traffic information:
(*) If the TA traffic information function is on,
but the radio station chosen does not give traffic information, the device beeps every 30 seconds.
With the TA function (traffic information)
it is possible:
a) to search only RDS stations that transmit in the FM band, enabled to broadcast
traffic information
b) receive traffic information even if the
Compact Disc player or CD-Changer is in use
c) receive traffic information at a predefined minimum volume even with the radio volume off.
– select band FM1, FM2 or FMT
– briefly press (less than 1 second) the
“AF-TA” button (1) so that the display
shows “TA”.
– press the tuner buttons “˙˙” (7) or
“¯¯” (4).
To store stations with TA on, carry out the
storage operations (see “Manual station
storage”).
b) If wishing to receive traffic information when listening to a Compact Disc, before inserting the cassette or starting the CDChanger, tune to a station enabled to broadcast traffic information (TP)and activate the
TAfunction. If while listening to the Compact Disc, this station broadcasts traffic information, the Compact Disc will be suspended temporarily and resumed again automatically after the end of the message. At
the start of receiving traffic information the
display will briefly show the wording “INFO TRA”, while the display continues giving further information (frequency, name,
time of CD etc.).
If wishing to interrupt the traffic information message, briefly press (less than 1 second) the “AF-TA” button (1) during transmission of the message.
c) To receive traffic information while not
listening to the radio:
– turn on the TA function briefly pressing (less than 1 second) the “AF-TA” button (1), so that the display shows “TA”
– tune to a station enabled to transmit
traffic information so that the display shows
“TP” turn the volume to zero keeping the
“VOL-” button pressed (19).
WARNING In certain countries radio stations exist which, even if the TP function
is on (the display shows “TP”), do not
transmit traffic information.
If the volume is changed during a traffic
bulletin the value is not shown on the display and the new value is kept only for the
bulletin in progress.
If the radio is working in the AM band,
when the “AF-TA” button (1) is pressed,
it passes to the FM band on the last station heard. If the station selected does not
broadcast traffic information (wording “TP”
not shown on the display), the search for
an enabled station starts automatically.
During a traffic bulletin it is possible to turn
on sound adjustment with the “AUD” button (18). The new values set are also kept
at the end of the bulletin.
The volume with which the traffic bulletin
is transmitted varies depending on the listening volume:
– listening volume below 30: traffic bulletin volume = 20 (fixed value)
– listening volume above 30: traffic bulletin volume the same as the listening volume + 1.
WARNING If the TA function is on and
the station tuned is not able to provide traffic information or it is no longer able to provide this information (the display will not
show “TP”), so after 1 minute in which the
radio is in these conditions:
– if listening to a Compact Disc another
station is sought that is enabled to transmit traffic information
– if when listening to the radio a “beep”
is given to alert that it is not possible to receive traffic information; to interrupt it, it is
necessary to tune to a station that can provide traffic information or switch off the TA
function.
SOUND SYSTEM WITH COMPACT DISC PLAYER
If the Compact Disc player is already working and at the same time you want to receive traffic information, briefly pressing
(less than 1 second) the “AF-TA” button
(1) the radio tunes to the last station heard
in the FM band, the TA traffic information
function is activated and the traffic messages
are transmitted. If the station selected does
not send traffic information, the search for
an enabled station starts automatically.
This way, if that station broadcasts traffic
information, this will be heard at a minimum
predefined volume.

system, the display shows the words “CDC
CODE” for about 2 seconds, followed by
four dashes “- - - -”.
The secret code consists of four figures
from 1 to 6, each corresponding to one of
the dashes.
To enter the first digit of the code, press
the corresponding button of the preset stations (from 1 to 6). Enter the other code
digits in the same way.
If the four figures are not entered within
20 seconds, the display will show again the
words “CDC CODE” for about 2 seconds
and then four dashes “- - - -”. This is not to
be considered as an incorrect code entry.
After entering the fourth digit (within 20
seconds), the CD Changer starts working. If
a wrong code is entered, the radio sounds
a beep, the display shows the words “CDC
CODE” for 2 seconds and then four dashes “- - - -” to warn the user that it is necessary to enter the correct code.
If a wrong code is entered for three consecutive times the display will show the
words “CDC WAIT”. During the timeout
(1 hour) the sound system can however be
used and it is possible to select another
sound source or to turn the sound system
off.
If another sound source is selected it will
be possible to start the new code entry procedure after 1 hour. The timeout will start
from 1 hour again if the sound system has
been turned off.
When timeout is over if the sound system
is in CD Changer mode the display will show
the words “CDC CODE” for 2 seconds and
it will be possible to start the new code entry procedure. If the sound system is not in
CD Changer mode, no message will be displayed. Select CD Changer, the display will
show the words “CDC CODE” for 2 seconds: now the new code entry procedure
can be started.
