Station programming .

FYI this does not happen with all used ASK units

Now as for the MMI not needing coding . Again you are 110% wrong
unless you want features missing that the doner car didn't have that
your car has or you want Greyed out features the doner car had that
your car don't
Sorry Paper,

Maybe you miss-read what I put.. I am talking about him getting his sound back.. I said I figured there would be things he would most likely want to program, but from what I was told it will "work" without being programmed. I mentioned I don't know this to be correct, but that's what I was told. I was also told a pre-face ASK would work without programming, but a post-face ASK wouldn't.. again, you are obviously the expert here so you will know best.. but I figured that is where is "no sound" was coming from.
