Blaupunkt 2040 code.

Post by curly69+ »

Hi everyone,I’ve got a 206gti 2001,I’ve had to disconnect the battery so the blaupunkt 2040 requires the code but my multifunction display isn’t working(changed the 4 bulbs and had a look at the soldering but I can’t get it up and running,you can sometimes see the display in certain light,can not get hold of a 4 bulb display for love nor money).I’ve got the code but I’m going to be entering it blind(the stereo has locked)so I’m just wondering if anyone out there knows how to enter the code and how I would reset the stereo.Big thanks.

If it's like this one, instructions below - but note the lock out times! So before starting at the beginning, check the last section regarding 'Code Entry Error' - as you may need to leave it before attempting code entry again.

(A)Pre-selection buttons.
(B)Radio On/Off button.

Entering the code:
Switch on the audio equipment(B)
CODE appears on the display for 3 seconds, which indicates that the radio is protected by a code
The radio then changes to requesting a code and - - - - appears on the display
Enter the 4 digit code number using buttons 1 to 6 (A)

Example: Code number 5345:
Press buttons 5, 3, 4, 5, in succession
When the fourth digit has been entered correctly, the radio starts automatically

Code entry error:
  • The radio will lock for a period of from 5 mn to 1 hours after the fourth incorrect attempt
  • To unlock the radio and allow a new attempt to enter the code, leave it switched on throughout the waiting period
  • If the radio is turned off during the waiting period, the full original delay will restart when the radio is switched on again
  • If there is an error in entering one of the first three digits, do not continue with the operation, switch off the radio to prevent it locking

Huge thanks Marc.Silly question but does the ignition have to be on the 1st click(just red battery light on dash) when resetting the code.

It doesn't mention that - but so long as the car isn't going into economy mode, you should be able to do this with engine running or off / as long as the radio is on.
