InOP - Too many wrong code attempts have been entered and the radio must be left powered on for one hour with the battery and ignition applied before three more attempts can be made. Entering only the correct code will unlock the car radio. here's your answer . cheers

You need to see the dealer for information on the radio code. Also sue O'Reilly auto for improper installation of the new battery.

97 S90 Volvo with original radio per Previous owner. Radio worked before Battery replaced. Called dealer and Got code, put it in and got rpt message. Several attempts- still no Working radio! HELP...


ok rpt stands for repeat. when it says that it is the wrong code that you are putting in. you only get three trys on this. after the third time it will say off. you must wait 2 hrs with the stereo on until you can try putting a code in. you need to find the right code for that stereo.inside your manual book there should be a credit card size card that has a four digit code on it. that is your stereo code. put that in and your stereo should be up in running. good luck

What I do after putting wrong code


If the fuses are good then there may of been a chance that he also messed up some of the wires just riping it out. Is it a aftermarket radio that you are trying to install? You can but wire harnesses that make installing new head units easier. The radio you are trying to hook up may not work at all either. Check the fuses then make sure the wires even the ones deep in the dash are still okay and not messed up from him just yanking the radio out. Good luck

Need a code to unlock my radio for a 97 grand prix


Follow these steps to unlock your GM Delco Radio:
1. Turn the ignition ON (The Delco radio displays "LOC" or "INOP").

A. If your radio says "INOP" then you have entered too many wrong codes. You will need to run the vehicle for one hour or turn the key into the ON position for one hour before you can proceed to Step 2.

2. Looking at the face of your GM Delco radio, hold down the preset buttons 1&4 or 2&3 for approximately 10 seconds. The radio display changes from "LOC" to a three-digit number. Write this number down.

3. Press the AM/FM button. The radio display changes to another three-digit number. Write this number to the right of the first one.

4. You now have a six-digit number, the first three digits are from STEP 2 and the last three digits are from STEP 3, you will have a number like this (612-622).

A. NOTE: Saturn and GEO vehicles will only display a four-digit number. The fourth digit will be displayed half the size of the first three digits. Example: 2193.

Hope helps (remember rated and comment this).

2001 mitsubsi eclipse enter car radio wrong code 3 times


Put the key in the ignition and set it to "accessory" setting and leave it there for about 45 minutes.
After that remove the key and put it back in and you should be able to enter the code again.

2000 chevrolet s-10 radio inoperable


believe it or not you have to take it to the dealer to unlock it. Plus before you go there you have to leave the truck running for 30 minutes without touching the radio to get it out of inop mode. The radio got put in inop mode from loc mode by putting in the wrong code 3 times in a row. Once its out of inop you can take it to the dealer and they can call gm and get the unlock code for the radio (should cost 30-45 bucks at most dealers)

I need help to unlock a radio in a 1997 Chevy Cavalier??


InOp means inoperable. There is a 4 digit code that you have to put in on the radio. I don't know if they are all the same code or not, but mine is 0642. read the directions in your car book. If you don't have one let me know and I can scrape mine up. Basically, though any time your battery is diconnected you will have to unlock the radio.

I got the code just don't no how to put it in


Unlocking the Theft Deterrent Feature after a Power Loss Enter the secret code as follows, pausing no more than 15 seconds between steps:
  1. LOC appears when the ignition is ON.
  2. Press MIN and 000 will appear on the display.
  3. Press MIN again to make the last 2 digits agree with the code.
  4. Press HR to make the first 1 or 2 digits agree with the code.
  5. Press AM-FM after you have confirmed that the code matches the secret code that was written down. The display will show SEC, indicating the radio is now operable and secure.
If you enter the wrong code 8 times, INOP will appear on the display. You will have to wait an hour with the ignition ON before you can try again. When you try again, you will only have 3 chances to enter the correct code before INOP appears.
