Question about 2004 Saturn VUE

2004 saturn vue Replaced battery. Radio and Cd no longer work.

Hi, Replaced battery. Radio and cd no longer work. Bought car second hand. Followed instructions in manual, but can't get a code from the radio. Any ideas how I can restore without taking to the dealer for two hours worth of labor(they tell me) to take out radio, get serial #. call in to mfr and reset?

    The radio on my 2004 Saturn Vue does not work, but the clock does. I've tryed the directions on my owners manual with no luck. I have tryed disconnecting the battery, check fuses still no luck.

Turn off the car and remove the negative battery cable off. let sit a few minutes then reconnect the cable. try it several times. The removal of the battery causes the computer to deprogram itself. what you will be doing is re-programming the computer module.

If it is like most Saturns if you had the radio or any eletrical equipment on when you changed the battery it blows the fuse. It will also blow the fuse to your turn signals or wipers if they are on.

Theradio/tape/cd no longer works. I confirmed that it has 12 volts to the connector. Is there an anti-theft code that shut it down when the voltage was interrupted during the battery change?


Sounds like it needs the code inputting, mine did the same. Now, what the code is?????
Maybe if you post the make and serial number on here someone may be able to help. It maybe written down in your manual etc.

My radio /cd player won't allow me to put the code in


If the wrong code has been entered too many times the radio is likely to be permanently blocked.

Each time a code is entered wrongly or the wrong code is used there will be a waiting time before the code can be tried again and each time that waiting time will be longer; up to several hours.

It is important to enter the code and activate the radio precisely so check the procedure in the manual before starting then if the code won't go in assume you have the wrong code.
The correct code can be purchased from the dealer or various internet sites offer "find your code" services. Alternatively it is possible to have the radio re-coded or decoded. Bear in mind the radio could be permanently blocked and effectively useless..

With the radio on, make sure there is voltage at the speaker wire positive and negative leads. If there is no voltage, the output from your receiver might have gone out.

How to fix RBQ radio, disconnected battery now radio does not recognize cd


Hi,

The radio/ cd unit, for your model Jeep, has a built in security code. When disconnecting the the battery it activates the security. The reason for this is to discourage someone stealing the radio, as it renders the unit useless. To re-activate the unit you will have to enter a pin number, which should be supplied with the vehicle when bought from the dealership ( check in your operating manual). If you don't have the pin number, contact your Jeep dealer, who can supply the required pin code. Usually the dealer will re-activate your radio/cd unit free of charge.

Best of luck

Radio code for 2001 chevy blazer


1) Press the 2 & 3 numbers on your radio at the same time for about 10 seconds; a 3 digit code will come up 2) Press the am/fm button for about 10 seconds; another code will appear 3) Write those numbers down in that order 4) Dial 1-800-537-5140 and enter 202107 followed by the * sign 5) Enter the 6 digit code from your radio followed by an * 6) The phone number will give you a 3 or 4 digit override code, enter this code into your radio just as your owners manual tells you to NOTE, if the code you get back starts with a 0, drop the zero from the code. So if you get 0123, your code would be 123. Hope this helps out a lot of people and screws the dealers!

Simple contact you local Jag dealership and ask them, they will need the VIN No and there is a small charge (about £8). Then follow the instructions on http://www.bluejag.co.uk to enter code.
