If you do not have a code, you need to take your car into a saab dealer who will quickly take the radio out to get it's radio code. They will then phone saab and get the four digit code for you. This is always the same so you need to keep the code safe for the future. They only charge about £15.
When you have the code enter the number in when your radio screen says code in with four dashes. If the screen only has four dashes and not the words code in then you need to leave the radio on for an hour until the screen comes up with the words code in. If you enter the code in incorrectly three times you will have to leave the radio on for an hour again. You cannot hear the radio while you wait the hour. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: entering the radio code

The 1-4 buttons on your station preset are used to input the numbers. The one is the first number, the 2 is the second number, etc. Once you have the entered the 4 digit code, you have to push the tape button. If the code is correct, your normal display show.

Changed battery now radio doesn't work


By disconnecting the battery the radio thinks that it was being stolen so it went into security mode. You will need to re-enter the security code for the radio and it will turn back on. The code may be in the hand book or you can get it from the car dealer as it is on record from the factory unless it is not original

Chrysler Voyager 2003 battery went dead now radio won't even turn on, clock doesn't work


i assume you put a new battery in,van runs but no radio or clock, check all your fuses first,and also make sure that radio doesnt have anti theft system, if it does then read your manualy on how to enter the code,if it needs a code then it wont work until code is entered,careful if you do the code entering wrong three times then radio shuts down for one hour, then you would need to have the key on or van running for one hour straight,

Changed battery and now radio won't work


Your radio is protected by a theft deterent. When the battery is disconnected the radio thinks it is being stolen. If you look in your owners manual, there should be a code you enter by typing the numbered keys on the radio to restore it. If you can't find the manual or the code google it.

I need a radio code for my 320ML Mercedes Benz


If your lucky the code may have been written down in the manual book and instructions on how to enter the code. If there was no codes you can try 0000 and see if that works which is the default if no security codes were programed.
If that does not work go to www.radio-code.com. I think it's like $9.00 and they can retrieve the codes for you.
Good luck and hope this helps.

Radio code


If you have tried a few times before NOT entering the right code or making error when entering code. This radio will lock you out, here is what you do disconnect battery cable for 60 seconds (positive cable) or disconnect radio fuse. Then re-enter code make sure that you are pressing firmly on number and make sure that you enter correctly.(POWER ON RADIO SHOULD BE IN ON POSITION WHEN DOING THIS) If this doesn't work then you will need to go to HOnda and fora fee they will be able to get code. Good Luck and thanks for using FIX YA.
