When you disconnect your battery and then reconnect it again, it disables the radio. This is an anti-theft protection for your car radio.
The enable your radio the activation code is in your vehicle owner's manual. If you do not have this code you need to go to your vehicle manufacturer's service centre and get them to enter this code for you.

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

Retreve radio code 05 caravan


Hi Robert, I'm AL the owner of Big As Auto Repair.

I look forward helping you with your problem!

Robert, if your radio is a Chrysler radio that came with the vehicle then your problem is not a code issue. Two things may have happened. (1) You may have blown a fuse while replacing the battery. Check all fuses. (2) The Radio was on its last leg and the battery change may have help it go out. Here, one thing you can try if the fuses are good. Pull the radio out and try unplugging and reinstalling the connectors at the back of the radio. Some times this will kick start the radio back to life. If not you'll need a new radio, sorry for the bad news. If you should need further assistance click here. Auto Repair

2000 Mitsubishi Mirage--Changed battery, code displayed on car radio screen; played with entering numbers, pushed the audio button, now OFF is displayed. What to do?


If you entered the incorrect code several times you may have ruined your chances of getting radio to work. On vehicles with anti theft radio when the battery is disconnected or the vehicle looses power the radio licks and to enable it a code is needed. The dealer may be able to help you but they would need certain information. Sometimes the vin of the car or some times the radio has to be removed to get the serial number. But if the wrong code is entered after so many attempts the radio becomes completely disable. To the point where you will not be prompted to enter a code.

You have an anti theft radio. You will need to a local Chervrolet dealer and give them your vin number and they can give you the code and help you unlock the radio.

Radio and console does not work after replacing battery


Radio may need code, radio should display "code, loc, ..." IF no power at all, check all fuses. Sometimes spark from changing battery can blow radio fuses easily.

Radio locked


I had the same problem with my 1999 Sonoma. try this:
(You must be in your truck with a cell phone handy)

01. Turn the ignition ON (The radio displays LOC)

02. Hold down the Radio Presets 2 and 3 buttons for six seconds

03. The radio display changes from LOC to a three-digit number. Write this number down. Don’t take forever, fifteen seconds max before the next step.

04. Press the AM/FM button

05. The radio display changes to another three-digit number. Write this number to the right of the first one.

06. You now have a six-digit number, the first three digits are from STEP 03 and the last three digits are form STEP 05

07. Call 1 800 537 5140

08. Press 1 then # (pound). You’ll hear “Invalid Code, try again”

09. Press 139010 then # (pound). You will be asked to enter your four or six digit code followed by * (start)

10. Enter the number from STEP 6 then * (star)

11. Listen to the four-digit number and write it down. It will be repeated twice

12. Turn the ignition ON (The radio displays LOC)

13. Use the MN and HR buttons to enter the code from STEP 11

14. Press the AM/FM button. The radio display changes to SEC Your radio is now “un-locked” and usable. The Theft-Deterrent feature is STILL active! If you want to disable it, use the instruction in your Owner’s manual. Use the code from STEP 11 instead of your personal code.

Hope it helps.
