I have an 2012 chrysler 200. i recently had to replace the radio. it was purchased off of ebay. i have thevehicles registration and radios serial number how do i retreive the security 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.

I have a problem with the code of the stereo honda element 2004


Usually the stereo code is needed for accessing any kind of function of the stereo.
If the radio code is not located in the owners manual there are other places that might have the code displayed.

Check the fuse panel inside cover or the sides of the glove box door.
(This is where I put the radios code sticker for when I am performing new vehicle deliveries)

A honda dealership would be the only option to make use of this problem.

What the Honda dealership does is find the stereo's serial number then the advisor is able to locate the radio's 4 - 6 digit code.

On some models the serial number is found by holding the #1 and #6 radio preset simultaneously, then hitting the power button.

At this point the radio's display should show the serial number and the radio code can be retrieved by the advisor.

check your fuses first. You may have blown one.

NOTE: To enter the ICP Self-Diagnostic Mode, the ICP must be ON and in radio tuner mode (AM/FM).
  1. Enter the diagnostic mode by pressing and holding preset buttons 3 and 6 simultaneously. This will suspend all radio functions, and display SP.
  1. Preset Button 1 = Audio internal/external SELF TEST. The display will flash SELF while gathering the diagnostic trouble codes (DTCs), then stop flashing when complete. Press the TUNE UP button to display the DTCs if any exist. Record codes and refer to the following table:

2005 gmc sierra, replaced radio with known good radio with same part # and model #, all functions work but there is no sound from the radio or the key and door chimes. Is this a lock feature. Took vehicle...


i cannot understand how you radio would work. These radios are coded throught data link to computer. the only way to get the stereo to work is to run a calibration program through the vehicle. then it should accept your new cd player. if the stereo's are the same then may I suggest you to take the radios appart and switch the parts that don't work like CD drive assembly and faceplate.but use your factory installed stereo as the main core, this should fix your isses and work fine since the calibration is for the origional factory stereo.

Kia Spectra radio replacement issues


Did you go to nearest Autozone store and ask them to do free OBD-II 'code scan'? If you're not near Autozone stores call other part stores and even repair shops and ask if they'll do a free OBD-II code scan. Write down all the codes they give you then either buy a manual or goto http://www.kiatechinfo.com/index.asp and register a new logon there. Its a good place to do research on your problem. Sorry I can't help more.

CD, Radio will not work, shows CODE on the screen


Yes this happens because the radio enters a security mode (anti theft) after you disconnect the battery terminals to it, I'm afraid you can not find that code on internet, you can either find it on your car's owner's manual or go to a Honda dealer ship and they'll provide you the security code for your car, not a big deal. Hope it helps and please rate the answer, as it helps me with my general ratings, thanks! P.S. comment if you need more advice

Factory stereo code


Factory radio codes are an anti-theft deterrent, they are unique to each radio and car serial number, in order to get the code the dealer will have to access the manufacturers data base, you will need to pull the radio and record the radio model number and the serial number of the chassis of the radio and take it to the dealer, they will not in most cases give the info out over the phone, this would defeat the whole purpose of the code.
