SOURCE: need radio 'code' for 2000 montero sport with factory cd player

Hi Myzoom,

My name is Mike. I've been with the site for just short of two years. I volunteer to moderate postings for abuse, spam, that sort of thing. When I see a one thumb rating (the worst) it gets my attention, so I check them out.

There is a hypothetical situation I would like you to consider:

Two days ago at 3:00am, a crackhead broke into your car and stole the radio along with some paperwork he found in the glove box.

The next day he plugs it in and gets the 'code' message.

'I know', he thinks, 'I'll get the code from FixYa'! I've got the VIN from the papers I grabbed. Suckers...

He gets online and posts this:

"replaced dead battery in 2000 montero sport ltd. radio2_bing.gif now says 'code' and isn't usable at all. need the 'code' for my unit. it is the factory model of infiniti cd player2_bing.gif. my vin is: JA4MT41RXYP051225"

What do you do?

Now you may consider Kelly's response to your problem as not helpful or you just down rated him because it wasn't the answer you wanted to hear. The rating you gave by the way, is usually reserved for cases of abuse. It is an insult.

For reasons you have superbly demonstrated, not to many experts here provide answers that may cause the Asker to 'Shoot the messenger'.

Kelly provided the correct answer.

It was quoted verbatim from your vehicle manufacturers web site.

And without bothering to even comment, you down rate a person who 'volunteers' there time to help people.

The only abuse here is being shouldered by the person who tried to help you. Hopefully this was a mistake on your part. If so, it can be remedied.

Whether you choose to do so or not, the solution to your problem remains unchanged:

If we were ethically challenged and willing to provide ways to bypass anti-theft devices for the price of a good rating, there-by giving more value to any stolen goods, how long would it be before you really did wake up to the sound of breaking glass at 3:00am?

There is a reason the code feature is there.
There is a reason we don't provide ways around them.
There is a reason you need to contact the manufacturer.

For what it's worth.

Hi there:

Here are the listing as to what the error codes refer to:
- E01 - Focus Error - Disc is not loaded correctly, or condensation on disc
- E02 - Disc Error - Disc is dirty, scratched, or deformed; or excessive vehicle vibration
- E03 - Mechanism error - Loading or eject error. Pickup-up is out of position.

The E03 error typically occurs when the CD player mechanism is damaged. Try different types of CDs; a new music CD would be the best to try. If that also gives the same E03 error, your CD player probably needs to be replaced.

Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I`ll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using FixYa, have a nice day.

My blinkers wont work but the hazards work. No fuses burnt out.

That would most likely be the switch itself. Fairly common

I have a Mit. Montero Sport 1999

Your code is 4886.

Use preset button 1 to scroll through the first digit, preset button 2 for the second digit, etc.

Once the correct code is displayed, push the unlock button to unlock the radio. The unlock button varies between models, but it is always either CD, AM/FM, or TAPE. There is no penalty for pushing the wrong one as long as your code is correct.

If it is a factory radio you will have to remove it> call your local mit dealer and give them the # on the back of the radio. They will tell you the code.
