You can turn the RDS on or off which changes whether it reads the data sent from Radio stations or just leaves the station name as itself in digit form.

I disable mine because my RDS doesnt seem to work right and labels the radio stations with weird parts of song titles.

It says that my AMP was manufactured in 2001 but my car is build 12/2005 and all other stuff were manufactured around that date. Does it mean my AMP was replaced with old/used parts? I just got this car less than one month...

Thanks for showing how to get into the hidden menu. Any way to change the coding settings while u are in the menu? My dealer took the car for service by changed my central locking coding so now i don't get the confirmatory hazards signal when i lock the car.

I'm taking the car back this wednesday but if i can change it from here would save me so much hassle.

Thanks
