my car left me stranded in the mountains because of the anti-theft device. I ended up in the dealers, paying a lot, but they changed the housing of the steering column by the ignition where it supposedly caused a short and wouldn't allow the car to start. That was 2 yrs ago and it is acting up again.
If you just replaced the battery or something, the stock radio has an anti theft device that makes the radio ''Lock'' when the power is disconnected. the only thing you can do is take it to the dealer and hope they have your unlock code. You may find a reset procedure but I doubt it... good luck!
notify dealer code is part of anti theft system -the battery pobably went dead before u bought car that is what usually does it- if u have manual in it tells u how to retrieve the radio id code which will be needed or call dealer first they can advise, go in with codes and id and vehicle proof of ownership and they will give u code for ur radio
theft lock is an electric code that keeps the radio from working if the power is disconnected you must reprogram your code to work again if theft lock is not programed by the owner it needs no code to work if you are going to replace it with an after market radio it is mute any way
you will need to contact the dealership ..this is an anti-theft -deterrent in the event your radio is stolen ...and applies to all newer model vehicles ...although its possible someone such as the salesman or previous owner if applicable wrote it down on a separate piece of paper or within the service Manuel ..
