View Full Version : Radio Issue

04-07-2017, 01:40 PM
I have several radios which have been gifted to a charity, but buyers are having issues staying that they will not work once installed. We are at the moment wondering if they are trying to retro fit to older vehicles and if that is causing the problem. Would anyone be able to advise what years of vehicles these radios would fit. They have been removed from 2016 vehicles with delivery mileage only.

Radio Model No MR2520 VRG1/1
Part No A906 900 51 03
Mfr Alpine Electronics Inc Hungary
Assy date 03/21/2016

Many thanks

My understanding is that modern Sprinter radios contain anti-theft features that require them to be programmed with a particular vehicle VIN before they will operate. This requires dealer-level diagnostic tools. My guess is that a trip to the dealer will be necessary in order to use these radios on other than their original vehicles.
