Icon5 Headunit questions

I've searched the forums and haven't found anything on this so here it is. I have a 98 lude which i got from my neighbor and when he had some work done on it they disconnected the battery. This made the headunit "reset" and it cost him $90 to get the code to make the headunit work in the car again. He told me not to mess with the radio otherwise i'll have to use the code. I plan on putting in my own headunit and i've done more than a few but i was wondering if anyone ever heard of this or has any advice on what i should do with it. I have the code to "re-activate" the headunit if it gets disconnected so it'll work again in the car. I assume if i just disconnect the stock HU and put the aftermarket one in then i won't have any problems. Thanks for any help, info or comments.

Re: Headunit questions

nope you wont have any problems. The code deal is the antitheft system built into the radio. We get them for people all the time. But since you have yours if you ever go back to stock you wont have any trouble getting the factory headunit to work.

Re: Headunit questions

You can purchase a memory saver. Plugs into the cigarette lighter, and will keep the radio, ecu, and car alarms activated when you disconnect the battery. Just in case you forget how to enter the theft code, or lose the code :knock on wood: if you go aftermarket, you can still install a theft code, and you will still put the memory saver to good use.

It takes a 9v battery, and as long as you keep fresh batteries, you're good.

Cheers

Re: Headunit questions

I taped the code to the bottom my stock headunit written with Sharpe when I took it out. As long as you don't lose that code, you're good.

It's only for the stock one though. Once you go aftermarket, you don't have to worry about it.

Re: Headunit questions

You will need an adapter harness to attach the afermarket radio to the stock wiring (so you don't have to cut into it).

Yeah I already had the adapter. Thanks tho. I tossed the new one in today with no problems and even tossed in some underdash lights since I had the dash apart. Yeah and no problems with the wiring or anything with the new headunit. Wired the headunit to the adaptor and plugged in and was ready to go.
