EL Falcon Radio Security Code Entry Procedure

Does anyone know the procedure to follow to allow the entry of a Security Code in the car Stereo System on my EL Falcon Futura S pack. The system, although sold with the car, is not identical to any shown in the manual. It has a 6 CD stacker. I have the correct code confirmed by Ford and have seen it entered by a technician following a previous battery failure. However there was a procedure followed by the tech to set the unit up for the entry of the code. I can't remember it and can't find anyone at a local Ford dealer who does.

Can anyone help??

Re: EL Falcon Radio Security Code Entry Procedure

you could try this. turn the ignition to acc, turn the unit on, enter your 4 digit pin. these digits will appear as you enter them. then it is programmed, if you input incorrectly err will appear, wait till code reappears then re enter. hope this helps.

Re: EL Falcon Radio Security Code Entry Procedure

on my AU 1, If the code has been incorrectly entered, and the display says 'err' then you need to leave the vehicle on accessory (ie with engine turned off) for up to an hour before the radio will let you re-enter the code (The radio needs to be left on during this period)

Cheers

Re: EL Falcon Radio Security Code Entry Procedure

If your radio is the one with the large tune/seek button on the left side you enter the code by holding down auto-m and the 6 button. You will then see 4 dashes and if the code is say 3556 you input it by pressing the no.1 button once, the number 2 button 5 times, the number 3 button 5 times and the number 4 button 6 times. Then press auto-m and 6 again and the code should be accepted.

Re: EL Falcon Radio Security Code Entry Procedure

Thank you. My radio is the one that uses the Auto-M and Scan method. I did eventually find the procedure. But only after being told by my dealer, quite aggressively, that I had a faulty head unit and a replacement would cost several hundred dollars!!!
