    Default cdr 2005 showing 'panel' and then '7 code'

    Hello all

    Have a bit of a problem with my CDR 2005. After a bizarre incident today when the car was 'vibrating' while it was locked up on the drive, and then refused to start, the missus disconnected the battery. Yesterday while she was using the car the stereo was re-setting itself to track 1 of the CD it was playing every time the car was re-started

    I got home from work today and re-connected the battery, jump started the car and all was well except the stereo is still playing silly ******s.

    When you turn the stereo on it shows the word 'panel'. I can't find any reference to this word anywere in the manual etc. If you follow the instructions in the book, i.e. hold down the 'AS' button and then switch on, it shows '7 safe' and there is no beep, or any other response from the unit. I gather this means I have 7 attempts to re-start the radio, but I haven't used any up to my knowledge. It was working fine yesterday apart from the track one re-setting..

    I'm very frustrated by all of this, especially as the ****** thing has just needed 200 worth of rear brakes to get it through the MOT!

    Anyone have any idea how to proceed? all comments welcomed!

    think it's asking for the stereo code mate you should have it in your leather wallet with your service book

    unfortunately it won't let me input any code, won't beep after you turn it on while holding down AS and is generally being quite annoying.

    the delay between entering codes gets progressively longer IIRC, so if you enter the first code incorrectly you have to wait 1 minute or so, before trying again. Not sure on the actual intervals, but try leaving the radio with '7 safe' in the display for 15-20 minutes to see if it will let you put the code in. AFAIK the ignition and radio has to be switched on during this time.

    well, disconnected battery for 20 mins, reconnected it and then left it sat with the stereo on (displaying '7 safe') and the ingition on for 2-and-a-half-hours. No change God knows what is wrong with the bl**dy thing.

    Guess I might have to get the dealers to look at it, unless anyone has any further suggestions.

    If it really is dead, then what is the likely replacement cost? would someone have a second-hand one, and would that work with regard to the codes etc? are there any other alternetives?

    There is a sequence you need to follow once you've entered the code in wrong,its in the manual...........

    This might help............

    According to the nice man at DND repairs, the 'panel' display may well be due to damage from when the car was jump started and there was a 'voltage spike'. Quote about 55 to repair with an 85% sucess rate. Given that the volume knob is broken as well (potentially another 25), think I'll need to replace it.

    I've located a 'reconditioned' one with code for 99 - does that seem reasonable?

    Might post in wanted section as well. I imagine provided I have the code any radio will work in any car - is this correct?

    Just to conclude this thread, the fault did indeed seem to be caused by the jump start, despite me following to the letter the jump start instructions in the handbook.

    I did manage to get the stereo re-progammed and hence repaired by the nice man at Northolt Car Radio repairs http://ncrr.chasleon.co.uk/ for 25. They were absolutely excellent, very helpful and knowlegable, and a damn site cheaper than even a recon unit.
