    Posted: 07áJuná2010 at 9:57pm
Hi,
I have a 2008 Qashqai (Visia), the other day I had to look up the radio code for my wifes Punto. This got me thinking about my Qashqai and off I went looking for the code (should I ever need it). Looked through the manual and it appears the radio/cd for the qashqai does not have the straight forward code that other cars seem to have, but is linked to the immobiliser.
Can anyone confirm this is the case, and in the event of the battery being disconnected no 'radio code' is required.

No, I don't think I have anything, or was given anything with a code. My owners manual does not mention any codes only that the radio/cd unit is linked to the immobiliser and cannot be used in any other vehicle.
It does not mentiuon anything about using codes if refitting after battery removal etc

Thats were mine is and this reminds me of the first new Transit I got about 14 years ago and the radio wasn't working I phoned the dealer and he told me to remove the ashtray and the sticker with the code was stuck to the bottom. Sure enough it was there, talk about security lol. Different times I suppose.

Definitely have not got anything like that. Why is this not mentioned in the owners manual. The only mention of radio security in my manual is as I have already stated, that the radio is paired to the immobiliser and can in no way be used on another vehicle. There are no instructions about inputting any codes upon re-connection.Maybe it is different between models.
I will ring dealer tomorrow to try to get my code.
I suppose I could try disconnecting my battery and see what happens (second thoughts maybe not a wise idea)!!!!!!

Even my dealer does not seem to know whether my particularly vehicle needs a 'radio code'. Said they would try to find out and call me back, of course never heard another thing. Will have to try again!

no code needed! your visia single cd unit is ecu programmed....if you take it out of your car it wont work in any other car hence no code needed!
the navi system as mentioned in the NTEC/tekna range does have a code which should be supplied with the vehicle!

Oh, ok thanks for that o_ptic.
I was beginning to wonder why there was no mention in the handbook. All my previous cars have had detailed instructions on how to insert code after battery disconnected.

The code is built into the headunit. Clarion are the only ones who can change it or make it work in another vehicle. Nissan dealers have a list of authorised centres.
It talks to the individual car it is coded to.
New units talk when 1st turned on ans stay paired.

I had this when I was repairing an in-dash CD Changer in an X registered Primera.  Took it out to work on it - fixed the problem, but it wouldn't actually *DO* anything.  Put it back in the vehicle and connected it up fully - it still wouldn't work.
 
I had to actually put the whole thing back together, and re-mount both the stereo and CD Changer into the dash, before it all came back to life.
 
Vauxhall do a very similar thing, where the stereo and main ECU are 'linked' - and to swap or change a stereo, has to be a dealer-only job - you have to remove the link between both devices, and then re-link with the new.  You can't just pull a stereo out of a newer vauxhall and clear the code either, I understand, you can only clear the code on the stereo through the ECU / management system.

only the connect has a radio pass
 
the 6cd autochanger doesnt have a code its linked to your car and just wont work in any car but yours ,my guess would be the single cd is the same or you would have a card in your handbook and the dealer would have pointed it out when you collected

depending on the age of the car; the original visia, acenta and teknas were all body control module (BCM) coded - so the card that you have with your log book is actually not a radio key...i believe from memory it has the door/ignition key code - but dont quote me on that lol
The connect (navi) as craigfishin states comes with a 4 digit code.
 
....however there is a new audio unit but im not sure if its applied to the QQ yet, its curently in the Juke - this unit is also 4 digit coded.

Although my car was delivered only a few weeks back too Im sure its NOT the same as the one in the picture, has anyone got a picture of the old single CD unit as my car is in the garage at the moment so cant check? Perhaps Ive got the old unit which doesnt come with a radio code then.
