You might have to take the radio out and call the dealer of your car and give them the pin number of the radio and they will give you your code

SOURCE: Car radio unlock code

Open your glovebox and look either inside the box, or on the outside black plastic--there should be a sticker with two sets of numbers. I don't remember how many digits the radio code is, but the radio code is on the sticker on the glovebox when it's in the open position.

SOURCE: battery was removed, nedd the code for music

Check the Glove compartment inside top there is a white sticker with the numbers. Just enter the numbers on the radio while the car and radio are on. Happened to me many o' times.

SOURCE: Radio code required.

The better solution is right in your glove compartment. On the inside of the blove box door you should find a small white sticker, usually near the left side. The sticker will have two sets of numbers.

The number set with five digits is your radio reset code.

SOURCE: changed battery and alternator i

When you say it's dead, do you mean that no lights, no accessories work? Or just the starter doesn't work? Need to get a little more info before trying to help. Could be a starter issues, or a maxi fuse issue. Doesn't sound like the alternator or battery issue (unless it is battery terminals or ground) since it will "work" after you wait.

SOURCE: please after changing the battery of my VOLVO v40

This is a anti-theft device built into your radio designed to foil robbers. When the radio looses power, the radio locks up. This makes the radio worthless on the black market. The thieves know this and don't steal it as a result. Your owners manual tells you to clear the code if there will be a power loss (changing the battery). There may not be a recovery procedure.

In the GM (1995) version of this system, there is no recovery (if there were, what would be the point of the system?). I don't know the specifics of the Volvo system. You may want to talk to your dealer before you replace your radio. I am sure you will have to prove ownership of the vehicle.

Thanks for your question @ this morning.

Changed car battery of a Ford Focus 1.6 2005 and a code was requested to be placed in order to put on the radio. Can anybody tell me the code or where I could find it? Thanks.

Usually, there is a supplemental manual (just a few pages long) that is with the owner's manual. It will tell you the code and the process to enter it. If you don't have it, you'll have to contact the dealer (who might tell you bad news). I would consider an aftermarket deck if they say you'll have to replace it.

Radio codes slk 230

Yes the radio theft lock was activated, you need to bring you vehicle to the dealer. They will need your registration, and they will need to pull radio ID number and contact the manufacturer for the code, as long as it is original radio or it has been replaced through a dealer. If not the manufacturer will decline the request stating the radio could be stolen. I will use jumper cables connected to a battery or another car when changing a battery so that doesn't happen.

My car stereo system on my 1999 Honda accord has a backwards 3 on it and will not play or even turn on.

I bought a used 1999 Honda Accord and found the radio code on stickers on the underside of the coin tray (near A/C vent by drivers door) and also under the lid of the fuse box under the hood.

Won't play just says 1CDE on screen

Some cars if you disconnect the battery more then 30 secs you got to put a code in the radio to play it again. They probably have the code written in your Car Manual if not you got to take the radio out and find the serial no# on the back of the radio. Write it down tell the dealer it and they should tell you the code.

2003 rio kia roaring noise in rear

brake drums ar faily simple to change, if u take the wheels off ul see a little centre cap, behind the cap theres a 21 mm nut, be careful not to mix up the nuts cos they are opposite threads, n/s is left hand thread.
remove the nuts (i advise replacin the nuts) then tap the drum while u spin it jus to loosen it off then jus pull it off, be careful with the bearing cos they'll fall out, IMPORTANT! when tightening the centre nuts back up they jus need to be nipped up NOT tight, jus enough to take the play out of the bearings but keep it spinning freely, when put the wheels back on make sure theres no play in it

The car enter code when i change the batrey Radio worked fine until a new clutch installed. Now when turned on, the display is CODE 3 and the radio doesn't play. What do we do?

Look in the owners manual for the stereo security code. I have also seen it in the glove gox on a 1.5 by 1" sticker black numeric code. If neither give you a solution return to the dealer with proof of ownership and request the code.
