A phone call to Becker

resulted in the following information.

The Becker Grand Prix in my car and others of similar vintage will display a row of dashes after power is reconnected and the radio is turned on. It will not work until recoded in some arcane way, probably by Becker.

I was told that if one removes the radio first and unplugs the 5-pin connector from the back of the radio AND LEAVES IT OUT, the radio will operate normally. The 5-pin plug may be removed before or after the battery is disconnected so long as the radio is not turned on before removal and the 5-pin NOT replaced.

Since I am about to leave on a pilgrimage to the sun I probably won't report results until my return and the repair is completed. I'll think of all of you often while in Bermuda (snicker).
