Xsara Picasso radio programming.

Post by discv »

My apologies if this question is posted in the wrong place.
I am trying to install a bog standard radio/cd using Lexia. Should I be using the vin. no. of the vehicle that the unit came from- or the vin. of the car I am fitting the unit into?
I'm missing a trick somewhere- the bleeping stops all the time I am connected to Lexia, but as I close the program back down it starts bleeping again.

Sorry, meant to read, you code the radio to the car it's now in

You must change the VIN stored in the radio to match the car it is fitted into.

And I thought this would be a doddle! At no point do I see any sign of the vin. that the radio came from to be able to edit it.
I'll have another shot tomorrow. Thanks guys.

Select radio from the global test screen then select programming. If I remember right the VIN is the first line. Just delete the old VIN & type in the new one. There is a button to press on the screen to save the VIN.
