SOURCE: 1997 chervolet venture radio reset codes

I had the same problem with a 97 transport. Here is a couple solution to your locked radio problem. This is assuming you have the ACDelco radio original to the vehicle. One way is to allow the vehicle to warm for an hour. After warming the vehicle press either the 1/2 or 3/4 or 5/6 buttons together. In two on the sequences, a three digit code will come up. Write these codes down. I called the original seller of the vehicle, (if known) or a GM dealer. Speak with the parts or service department. They do not have the 4 digit code to unlock the stereo, though they can make a call to ACDelco and get the code. The other way is to take it to a dealer and have them erase the code, which is approx. 30-50 dollar depending on the service station. Hope this helps.

You need to have the anti-theft code put in to make the radio work, this happens when the battery power is lost. Call the dealer or go to www.radio-codes.com

My radio isn't working we changed the battery just this morning and now the Radio doesn't turn on at all.


radios have an anti theft device in the system that cuts in when the battery or the radio is removed or disconnected
If the radio is factory fit and not very old you should be able to get the code from the dealer
if not there are free download sites that have radio codes for all makes and models
all you have to do is search your make of radio, model of car and if you have it the serial number of the radio

Radio has no sound ??


fuses are always first. test the fuses. (is dial dead too?)
and if this new car had a dead battery (discharged)
the radio sets the password bs.
needs an unlock code, that the dealer put in the glove box
and you lost that already? ask them. they have it.
only factory 0EM radios do this,

if the dial is not dead, scans and sound is dead.
some radios brick this way, no sound. but all else seems to work
but on some of , cars, has a seperate radio amp that has its own fuse. we cant guess which of 6 or more audio systems your car
was sold with new. lots.

bricked means , anti-theft feature bs , active.

Trying to install new radio, now caw won't start at all. Battery has full charge. Scan code says anti theaft. What can we do?


you have 1 of 2 choices ... anytime you take out the factory radio it activates the anti theft and car will not start choice 1 is put back in factory radio .. 2 is you will have to take it to a dealer to reprogram the radio to the anti theft modual the newer cars with antitheft will not start without it being reprogrammed by a dealer when taking out and exchanging radio

My battery had to be recharged on my 1994, BMW 318... My anti-theft system and radio are not working now as a result, but worked fine before the battery was recharged... There is a CODE msg in the...


When you take the battery cables loose from an anti-theft system, You would place a nine volt (9V) battery across the positive and negative cables to hold the memory chip in the systems. This allows you to remove the battery for a period of time longer than a few minutes. The system (anti-theft) is designed with a couple of capacitors in the system that hold the charge for a few minutes to allow changing of the battery. If the battery is removed for much longer than 30 minutes then the capacitors drain and the memory is lost in the chips.

You are going to have to go to the BMW dealer and have them re-write your system, and it will cost you about a hundred bucks. They have the plug in device that will restore the system and it is not sold to the general public. That is why it is called ant-theft, so if someone steals your radio it quits working.

to turn off the theft system, all you have to do is put the key in the door lock and lock and unlock the door, this shuts down the anti theft system,now this has nothing to do with the radio, the only way the radio would ask for the code is if it was removed or the battery unhooked,anyway try the unlocking of the door even try the passenger door, hope this helps.

The battery died on my 2001 eclipse, now the radio only says ''off''?


This is the anti-theft device on your factory radio. When the battery died, the radio thought it had been removed from your car and went into anti-theft mode. When you turned the car back on, the radio should have read "CODE" on the display, at which point you need to enter the factory anti-theft code. After 3 failed attempts at entering the code, it will simply read "OFF" and the radio is locked.

At this point:
- find your factory anti-theft code - it should be in your owner's manual, or you can contact a dealer to retrieve it
- turn the key to the ACC position (radio and accessories on, but engine is off)
- turn on the radio so the display reads "OFF"
- let the car sit for 1 hour
- radio will turn off automatically and reset
- turn the radio on again, and it should read "CODE"
- enter the factory anti-theft code

Make sure you have the code before starting the procedure. To enter the code, use the radio preset buttons. For example, if your code is "4321", hit Preset #1 button four times, Preset #2 three times, Preset #3 two times, and Preset #4 one time. Then hit the "Tape" or "CD" button. Radio should now be unlocked.

Radio dead after battery failure. possible anti theft code required?


Yes, alot of cars have this feature. It is a anti-theft feature so if it is removed you need a code to unlock the radio (or if the battery is unpluged). If it's an after market deck than it should be in the manual if no manual than try googling it. If it is the factory deck than more than likly you will have to go back to the dealer to get the code. Good luck.

2002 highlander radio code


Good news: You do not have to worry about you issue.
Your radio (if it is a "factory" radio) does NOT require a security reset code. You do not have an "anti-theft" radio. You can disconnect the battery cables at will, and the only issue you will have is that you will lose the preset stations that you set manually.
The "anti-theft" radios were abandoned by Toyota several years ago. Hope this eases your mind.
