You will need he following info from your radio:

Radio serial #

  1. Found on top of vehicles radio. You must remove radio from vehicle in order to retrieve radio serial number.
  • Some vehicles will have A serial# in the glove box. THIS IS NOT THE RADIO SERIAL# AND MAY NOT BE USED IN ANY WAY TO RETRIEVE CODE!
  • We ask that you not send us this number, as it will only delay your code retrieval process!
  • The radio serial# is found ONLY on vehicles radio chassis.


Radio MR or MB#
  1. (Found on top of vehicles radio. You must remove radio from vehicle in order to retrieve radio serial number).
  2. Number will start with MR or MB. You must include all numbers and letters included in serial#, including "MR or MB". Once you have this info you must go to the dealer and have them run the info into their computers linked to Mitsubishi, this will get the code for your pacticular radio, each radio has a unique anti-theft code.

The radio in my 2012 accord ex is not turning on. I have checked all the fuses and wiring. This was after I unplugged the battery. And it is not asking for a code there is no lights in the LCD at all.

The radio went into a security lock mode when the battery was disconnected. The manufacturer provides an unlock code (4-5 digits) that must be entered into the radio to unlock the radio. This is on a card that is provided to the original owner from the dealer and is normally in the packet of information that is in the glove box upon purchase. If you cannot find the code, you may have to remove the radio to get the serial number and then contact a dealer to get the unlock code.

How to unlock my radio (5000 rds) lock 13 M274131

Take that code and your car's registration to your local Ford dealer's parts department. They can look up the unlock code for you. You will need to input the code to unlock your radio. Write the code down in your owners manual, so that next time this happens [any time the battery is dead or disconnected] you will have to code to unlock the radio.

1999 pontiac bonneville wont start at all and security light is blinking on and off ive tried a new starter and that didnt help. all lights and radio still works but car is not making any signs of turning...

Hello, this may help,I have a gm product with after market security in it,my batteries went dead and i had to unlock doors with key to boost it,when we hooked up cables now that it had power and every thing was open the computer thought truck was being stolen so it went into lock down and i sat there for two hours trying to boost,it would spin over but not start,,leave the booster cables or battery charger on it,if battery is charged skip that and use your keyless entry to lock doors or lock doors by hand also make sure hood is closed if possible and let sit for about fifteen min then unlock and try to start,also it may be as simple as the nutral safty switch not quite lined up,,try moving shift lever a little or move to nutral and try to start.

I have a 92 volvo 940 that the battery went dead in and when I recharged it the radio locked. What is the code to unlock the radio?

A volvo dealership can tell you , or if you have the owners manual , and are lucky , you might find that the original owner wrote the code down in the book somewhere.

Radio Unlock Code

if you bought the car new then there should be writen in the manual the code for the theft lock system on the radio. if pre-owned then it might ,might not be in there. or if you dont have one at all. go to your nearest GM dealer and have them fix it by finding the code. make sure to have them write it down for you incase this happens again.
