This will most likely happen.
If it is the original radio that came with the car you can give vehicle ownership and registration details at the dealer workshop and they will get it off the manufacturers computer/web site.
Not sure how you will go with a replacement radio purchased from a shop. You may have to contact the manufacturer/agent.

An option I have heard is that there is a cheap device you can plug into the cigarette lighter socket prior to removing the battery and will provide sufficient voltage for the radio as long as the ignition is only in the "accessories" position and nothin else is turned on, i.e. ceiling light, glove box light.
It would not do any harm just to stop at a mechanic and ask how they would do it. It doesn't cost to ask.
I would be interested to find out how you go with this.
Regards,
Richard

How do get radio code


You really have nothing to lose by trying, but the dealer may be right in stating the serial number may not be the unlock code.

My battery was replaced, I HAVE THE RADIO CODE , BUT IT DOESN'T TURN ON THE RADIO, MY CLOCK STOPPED, MY CD PLAYER WON'T WORK...WHAT WENT WRONG?


You need to see the dealer for information on the radio code. Also sue O'Reilly auto for improper installation of the new battery.

If you bought the car new and have never set the anti theft code for the radio (Most people don't) then the code is the factory preset. If you have your owners manual for the car it will tell you under the radio area what the factory preset is IE 0000. From there you can either leave it factory or you can put your own 4 digit code in, but make sure you right it down in the back of the book or somewhere safe so you have it in case you ever have to remove the radio or you lose total power to the car. Losing total power like changing the battery will call for the radio to come back on in the locked position making enter the code to unlock it.

I have just put a new battery in my 1992 3.1i8 BMW and consequently reset the radio. It has locked in 3 dashes and I can't enter any numbers in. Any help would be greatly appreciated!


If you do not have the book for the radio, I believe there is a trick to entering the code. Its not just using the numbers. I think you have to hold another button down while entering the code or use the station up down button to enter the code. Try hitting all the buttons one at a time and see if that enters anything on the desplay.

Am i putting code in radio right


Are you sure it is a Nissan audio system. Nissan does not use codes in their radios. You must have an aftermarket radio.

Need to change battery in my used Land Rover. I do not have the radio code to reprogram after I put in the new battery.


get some jump leads and another battery of car, connect the leads to the terminals after you have loosened them make sure they stay connected while you remove the battery this way the radio will remain powered and you will not have to put in the code
