    I pulled my radio to install a Serius receiver, and now it does not play. I have the anti-theft key code, but can't get the unit to ask for it. Is there a sequence of buttons to push to get it to ask for the code?

Can you take radio out of one cadillac srx and install in different seria number srx

the radio anti theft comes into play when you disconnect the power supply for the radio. If you want to put it back into the vehicle you took it out of you will still have to enter the anti theft code to get it to work. The anti theft works for the radio and not the vehicles.

Had a new altanater put on and now the radio won't come on checked the fuse and its still good 1999 mercury cougar

If it is a factory radio, you may need to enter an anti-theft code. If it is an aftermarket radio, they tend to pinch or fry wiring in the area around the dash, and it may be unrelated to the replacement of the alternator

I removed a radio from my 1998 buick lesabre and replaced it with another one. Now I have no power to either one. Fuse is good.

there will be anti theft codes that you will have to put in to get the radios to work . If you do not have the code for the old one then it may be lost to you and the new one ( not second hand ) will have a code in the how to book ( owners manual)

I have a 2010 ford focus. Changed the battery and unable to get radio or cd to come on. The display is also blank

sounds like an anti-theft setting on the radio. look at the owners manual or search the internet to see the procedure to reset the radio. if it is not equipped with an anti-theft device, check the radio fuse in the fuse pannel.

I had a battery installed and now the radio wont work

if this has an anti-theft radio in it then you will have to get the code for the radio and reactivate it.if its not an anti-theft radio check the fuse with a test light as a voltage surge from hooking up a battery could have blown the fuse.sounds impossible but stranger things have happened.

I have a 2002 chrysler pt cruiser and my radio wont turn on and i already checked the fuse and relays and they all work the weird thing about it is that the radio its seld the lights from it do work...

Try to take the radio out and look at the fuse in the rear of the radio. You have 2 fuse locations one at your left knee and the other under the hood near the battery. Look in the owners manual for this fuse type, because some fuses work the same thing. Another thing could be that you have an anti-theft radio and it will not work with out you entering a code. The code is on the radio it-self or you have to contact the dealer with the vin number.......runjoe
