HOWTO: entering the radio's PIN and recovering from ERR


Ok, so I disconnected power to my 2003 ST II's radio when poking around looking at the line-in connector. No worries, I have the PIN so can easily get it going again.

Power back on - but my PIN starts with 0 and there's no '0' channel button! Fiddle for a bit, lock myself out ("ERR"... error, hit any user to continue).

Well, turns out (thanks to a friendly bloke at Randwick Nissan Service Dept) that

  a) you have to wait ~1-1.5 hrs with the radio on and flashing ERR to reset from the locked state, and
  b) once you're back to entering the PIN, you use the channel 1,2,3,4 buttons to set the 1st,2nd,3rd,4th digits (kind of like a combination lock)

Simple once you know :-)



(Never will understand why manufacturers put passnumber protection on base-model OEM radios - hi-fi these ain't. The exy's ST II basic stereo is rated an awesome 15 W/channel, and at a mere 10% distortion :-)

Re: HOWTO: entering the radio's PIN and recovering from ERR


Jalal just called me asking me how to do this (driving home from Chatswood without any music must be killing him - and it's a Friday so the traffic is even worse!), and your instructions seem abit vague...

He's got a "9" in his code and there's only 6 channel preset buttons, so it's not the expected "press each number in sequence" (and as you and Jalal have noticed, they didn't limit the code choices from 1 to 6, either).

So do the numbers cycle through? ie: do you mean that you keep pressing the first button until it cycles through to say "5", then wait a bit then once it's accepted the first number, press the second button enough times until it cycles through to say "7", etc?

Re: HOWTO: entering the radio's PIN and recovering from ERR


Thanks for your help Rich emoticon

As soon as you left a message, I thought I'd better check the PIN code one last time (as it was my 3rd and last try before I get locked-out)

It turns out that I was entering my old PIN for the ST single CD player and the new PIN has digits between 1-6, so as soon as I tried the new PIN for the 6CD stacker it worked straight away.

Yes, I needed the music as I had a VERY big and long day which I'll be telling you guys about shortly!!! stay tuned for that one LOL

Your question is still valid however if any of the Series II Ti guys has digit number 9 in their PIN, where will they get the 9 from using preset buttons 1-6??

Re: HOWTO: entering the radio's PIN and recovering from ERR


I believe your followup is correct Rich, but just to clarify: (for the single DIN plain-jane 2003 ST II radio/CD)

- the radio has 6 channel buttons, labelled 1 through 6

- the PIN is 4-digit number, each digit any number 0-9

- when locked, the radio shows '0000' on the display


The trick is to know that only the channel preset buttons labeled 1,2,3,4 are used to enter the PIN - each channel button is used to increment the value of one digit on the display. Channel preset '1' increments the first digit, '2' the second, and so on. Each press of a channel button increments the corresponding digit by one, cycling back to 0 and around again.


So to enter 1924 as a PIN, you'd start with the display reading '0000' and press
- preset 1 once (increment 0 -> 1)
- preset 2 nine times (increment 0 -> 9)
- preset 3 twice (increment 0 -> 2)
- preset 4 four times (increment 0 -> 4)


The last one's easy, as the radio unlocks as soon as you hit the right code so you just keep pressing preset button 4 'til it unlocks! (i.e. it's a 4 digit PIN but only as secure as a 3 digit one.)

You could probably enter the PIN out-of-sequence (digit 4 first, etc), but that's at your own expense :-)


BTW, I've replaced the factory unit with a Clarion DXZ556MP - sounds quite a bit better even with the factory speakers. And I've wired in my music player so I can finally listen to my own music again! Whoo-hoo! Will be looking at / listening to a couple of replacement front speakers tomorrow to complete my audio upgrade (either Pioneer TS-C1602, Jaycar CS-2329 or Clarion SRS1625 splits, assuming I can find 'em all in town)

Re: HOWTO: entering the radio's PIN and recovering from ERR


Well after driving to Oberon, I stupidly left the headlights on (and even though I hadn't disabled the key-chime bep, I left the keys in the ignition, thus didn't get the key-chime warning), and thus returned to the car 3 hours later with a completely flat battery.

Because I didn't have my owner's handbook with me, I didn't have the radio pin code, and decided to wait until I got back to Sydney to have a look.

Now I'm home, and can't find it written ANYWHERE in the service manual or owner's handbook. It's probably a case of "it's there but you can't find it when you're looking for it!). So I'll be ringing NissanCare right now to see if I can obtain the code over the phone. I don't like my chances.

I expect Nissan dealerships to be closed today. Don't you just love public holidays?

By the way, the 3+ hour return trip from Oberon was very boring without the radio. Even the portable CD player we use for Joshua's sleep-music CD (which we brought with us) got flat batteries...

Rich,

Just have your VIN number handy to give to Nissan when you call them, as they need it to match-up on their system and give you the code.

The dealer didn't give me the code when I bought my exy new, so am not surprised that you can't find yours.

Sorry to drag up an old forum, but does Nissan give you the code for free when you call them or is there a cost?

Any help would be great.

Thanks

Free if you give them the VIN Number.

Re: HOWTO: entering the radio's PIN and recovering from ERR


"Hello af3556",


"Thank You very much" for your Post describing how to enter the Radio Code for the Xtrail`s Radio.

I have been under the impression that I did not need a Code - Until Jalalski and others informed Me that I did - There is NO mention of this in either my Owners Manual - OR - a Copy of the Xtrail Servicing Manual that I have [Canadian Edition] - So Jalalski very kindly gave Me a `Link` to these Posts.

When I obtain the Radio Code from a Nissan Service Centre / Nissan U.K. [?] - I will now know HOW to Enter it.

Your descroption is very clear - "Thanks Again".


Regards,


CHRISMUR.
