When you bought the car your dealer must have given you that code or you can call them and let them know your registeration details they will give u the code for free all you have to do is to give them your details.
Good Luck !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Battery died, changed battery and now engine wont crank.

Look for a blown starter fuse or fusible link in your underhood block. Also look for what made it blow.

Hi there i have a mazda 6 1800 cc witch i bought on 2007. the cd player is there is a message err on the panel do gou know how i can unlock this? thanks a lot stelios peratinos

try dis-connecting the battery for 5mins which may allow you to re-install a code but you will need to get correct code as if keep typing anything it will lock again.

I have disconnected the battery to my MX5 and now when I try to use the stereo it just comes up with Err?

when the live is disconnected the stereo locks itself to unlock it you need the code which is usually a four digit number code look if its in the cars hand books if not a mazda main dealer will be able to get the code for you or i use a local radio code man than charges £10 so depending on how much it costs from a mazda dealer you may be as well buying a second hand cd player and putting that in
