I just purchased a second hand 2004 XC ***** ***** Barina

Customer Question

Customer: Hi, I just purchased a second hand 2004 XC ***** ***** Barina and the Blaupunkt 2020 Audio System doesn't work. Just wondering how easy this will be to fix & where I should take it? Your help would be appreciated. Thanks.
JA: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?
Customer: The dealership tried changing fuses but it didn't fix the problem & they were unable to input the security code when the engine was both off & on.
JA: OK got it. Last thing — JustAnswer charges a fee (generally around $18) to post your type of question to Car Electronics Experts (you only pay if satisfied). There are a couple customers ahead of you. We can help you for less if you're not in a rush. Are you willing to wait a bit?

Hello and good afternoon,

Thank you for allowing me to assist you, my name is Joe and I will be happy to assist you with your concern today.

From what I am reading my understanding is that the unit does not work because it requires the security code and the security code is not able to be entered as I am going to assume that it simply does not allow the code to be entered, if that is the case and it is not that it does not accept the code but that a code cannot be entered and if done correctly this would only leave the radio most likely needing to be replaced as nothing should prevent the code from being entered if being done correctly.

Thank you!
- Joe
