To get the code for the radio. Fist you need to get the model number and serial number of the radio. Which is at the top of the radio or the bottom. This requires you to remove the radio to get to it. Once you have this you have to go to the dealership and give them the serial number and model number to get the code..

The code is unique to each radio. You will need to show proof of purchase and the radio serial number to a Chrysler dealer to get the unlock code for the radio you purchased.

Radio code for 1999 volvo v40

Every volvo V40 vehicle has it's own code for the radio.

You will need to talk to a volvo dealer to get the code for your radio and hope they have kept the records in their system that far back.

My 1999 acura radio is lock how do i get code?

Before you start, try opening the glove box and looking on the left side of it. To my surprise, I'm told that some time around 2000, Honda started putting a sticker with the code in the glove box (I guess someone thought radio thieves were too stupid to look there!!)

If it's not there, go to this Accura website:

You will need to provide your VIN Number, Zip code, phone number and the serial number of the radio.

To figure out how you get your radio serial number, follow the instructions on this Honda site:

Also, what that site doesn't tell you is that if you have the non navigation model, you can simply pop out the dummy button between your fog light and rear defrost buttons with a small flat head screwdriver and with the help of a flashlight you should be able to see the serial number on the bottom of the deck through the hole.

I need a radio code for my 2006 honda

Late response, but for those who still have code problems on radio; I found the code for my 06' Odyssey was on the first page of service manual. The Owners Manual reads that the code should be on a card with the owners manual. I didn't find that. Hope this helps someone.

Radio code

There might be a sticker in the glove box or on the back of the fuse box lid. If there is not sticker there with your radio code, Log on to There is a $12.00 fee, but at least you can get your radio working again and for much less then the dealer. The other thing to that may work is may have that information by using your VIN number. Good luck and hope you get your radio working again soon.
