    I need the code for my radio

  • Anonymous Nov 20, 2008

    I can't use the stereo because I need the security code before I can use it, and it's quite frustrating. I've been searching the internet forever, and I can't even seem to find it online. So, what am I supposed to do?

Radio not working showing word SECURE


look inside your book owner manual
somewhere it supposed to have the code and a way to enter the code ,
or a manual of the radio !
somewhere in those books the code is printed like a ink pad label !
when you change the battery you need to inter the code each time,
open the radio with the number pad enter the code
you must do step by step like the manual of the radio say !!!!!
or the car dealer could help you
if you dont have the code the radio is useless

Why doesn't clock and radio work after installation of new battery?


Enter security code, it is in your owners manual within first few pages. It is written in by tech who checked vehicle out before delivery of vehicle. If no manual you will need to bring it in to dealer so they can look up code.

Radio,cd ,code,nissan pulsar plus 1999


When you disconnect your battery and then reconnect itagain, it disables the radio. This is an anti-theft protection for your carradio.
The enable your radio the activation code is in your vehicle owner's manual. Ifyou do not have this code you need to go to your Nissan service centre andget them to enter this code for you.

Just bought 1995 Lexus from someone who was NOT the original owner, they replaced the battery and the radio stopped working..they took to a mechanic and he said the code needed to be reset. How do I find...


First thing to do is look carefully in the owners manual. A good mechanic [or owner] will write the code in either the main manual or the manual for the radio. If there is no code available, go to any Lexus dealer's parts department. Be SURE to bring your auto registration with you [to prove you own the car] The parts guy will be able to look up your radio code using the VIN [vehicle identification number] listed on your registration. Usually, there is no charge for that.
Your owners manual will spell out the procedure for entering the security code [usually 4 or 5 numbers] to get the radio working again.

Need a code for bose premium 2100 acura Lengend '95


The security code should be in your owners manual. If you do not have the original owners manual, Take radio out & write the model and/or serial # listed on it & call up any Acura dealership & they will give you the security code for that specific radio. Go buy a Chilton manual at Autozone, Advance Autos, or O'rielly's for the directions on how to remove & install the radio.

How do I unlock my radio buick regal 2000


You will first need to get your radio 'security' code: it is usually provided with the original car user manual and documentation.

Car comes with different radio model, so you will need to consult the specific radio model user manual to enter the security unlock code.

Hope it helps.

I jump start my car battery and the radio stop workig


This is 'nornal': when you loose battery power or remove the car battery, the anti-theft funtion of your radio system will be enabled: you need to consult your specific car (radio) user manual to enter the radio security code which is normally a 4 digit code (originally provided when with new car manual or the radio if it is an aftermarket radio). The original car dealer may also have the radio security code.

Hope it heps.
