Default How to tell - Theft Deterrent Radio.

I've owned 3 (current one makes 4) Saturns. My 1st one had a cassette player, the 2nd one had the CD player, the 3rd one just AM/FM and my 4th one has a CD player again.

None of them have any where specified "Theft Deterrent". However, I have seen pics while shopping for a Saturn, of radios with the words "Theft Deterrent" on the radio.

Is this the only way to determine if my current radio/CD player is TD or not?

Thanks!
Paul

Default Re: How to tell - Theft Deterrent Radio.

I opened this thread because I have the same question. Before I disconnect the battery to do othe repairs, can I be sure my 92 SCs cassette radio doesn't have theft deterrence if the words aren't on the face of it?

Also, does the CD radio have cassette too? If so, I'll start looking in the junkyards to replace this. Is there a version that fits the '92s?

Thanks...!

I just found this by Low Saturn, so 1st question answered I think:

"Early model S-Series didnt have an anti theft code. "

My '03 L300 has 'Theft Deterrent' marked on the lower right side of the radio and is the old combination AM/FM/CD/Cassette. So some radios will have them silkscreened for plain view (most likely to discourage thieves) but unless specifically spelled out, may only play straight CD's, not MP3's.

I looked carefully for even a light "theft deterrent" like you described on yours, & see nothing. And it's an older model, so I think I'm safe to go. Good , one problem down.

Thank you!

I'd be find without MP3 considering I can't even play CDs without my external car unit. It's not working well, & it'd be so nice not to have wires danging about, & fumbling with it...

REWARD EXCELLENCE!
