THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR THE SCRIPT!

Worked brilliantly in less than 30 seconds on my Pioneer AVIC-F840BT.  I did contact Pioneer and they sent a very, I think, unhelpful email back which I have copied below.  Why they think somebody working in a dealership/Halfords (No detriment intended!) is a more secure receptacle for the information than me, a provable and bona-fide Vehicle owner who can supply serials and receipts and has a vested interest in folks NOT knowing how to do this, is way beyond my thought processes.

After all, if someone is going to break into my car to steal the radio, they already have the knowledge to break any password or they are entirely without wit, either way - my radio is gone and my windows are smashed so its a pretty pointless code anyway.  Again, many thanks for the info, I am very grateful to you for posting it.

Actual Email from Pioneer:
There is a password reset procedure but we cannot give you the details directly as this is security sensitive information which cannot be generally released.

Please take your vehicle to your nearest Pioneer dealership (Halfords etc) who can contact us on 0208 836 3500 (option 1) to speak with one of engineers to perform the procedure. The removal of the headunit will not be required.This takes about 5 - 10 minutes and the dealer representative will need to be left alone in the vehicle during this time to perform the reset.

Details of your nearest dealer can be found from the link below.

Ring them beforehand to confirm as this isn't a standard service they provide but dealers call us up regularly to talk it through with an engineer so it's normally not a problem.

You will need to present the purchase receipt for the AVH or your DVLA documentation showing you are the registered owner of the vehicle. This is a security requirement necessary for the reset.

A simple way to permanently delete your unit's security password. No Condi Hackmode or TestMode commands needed.

 

I wrote a simple script that will delete the security PASSWORD for most Win CE based F, Z, and X series units. I can't say whether it will work with the very old units, and it won't work with the model numbers ending in 50 or greater,  or Nex units. If your model isn't included, there is an alternate method that works with some NEX and AVH models. Service Password Method

 

  1. Format a smallish SD (32 GB or less) FAT32.
  2. Download and Unzip the file attached at the bottom of this post.
  3. Copy the unzipped files into the root of the SD  (TestMode.key and ScriptExec.ini from my zip).
  4. No other files on the SD. Eject it from your PC and insert into your AVIC. If nothing happens after 5 seconds. turn off your ignition for a few seconds, then turn it on.
  5. You should see a prompt to press any key. Press any button (volume-+ or trk <,>).
  6. Done. Remove the SD and restart your unit. No more password.

 

Note that the TestMode.KEY included here is only used to run scripts. It will not put your unit into the Maintenance menu. Also note that the script copies your existing PASSWORD.DAT file to the SD - just in case. So make sure it is not write-protected.

 

And a word of advice - In the future, don't set a password. It is no deterrent to a thief since there is no visible indicator that it has a password lock.(he will smash your window and destroy your dash regardless). Plus, he'll find this thread and unlock it. So save yourself the hassle a year from now when your car battery dies and you can't remember the password.

Thank you for your help RonS....I Tried this method for my x930bt model . After inserting sd card in my avic , it says sd card can not be read....I wonder it could be due to 128gb card that I have and not 32gb? Any suggestions or alternatives?

Appreciate your help.

Find a 4 or 8 GB SD. The AVIC boot loader isn't very sophisticated. I don't know what the max volume it can handle.
