If you look in your glove box in the owners manual under the stereo section there might be a car or a piece of paper with the stereo code information on it. If not you can call your local honda dealer and give them your vin/serial number and they can look it up on there computers and tell you what it is.

How to unlock radio from a2001 chey cavalier


see this technique and fix it. God bless you
Instructions
  1. With the Unlock Code
    • 1 Locate the anti-theft/unlock code. Most cars have a special anti-theft radio card that is included with the owners manual packet containing the unlock code and serial number. Some cars also have the code in the car manual or inside the glove compartment. You will need this code in order to unlock your car radio.
    • 2 Turn the car's ignition switch to the "on" position. This turns on your car's electrical system and powers up the radio. The word "CODE" will display on the screen. Note: depending on the manufacturer some radios will display either "ENTER" or "LOC" on the screen instead.


    • 3 Enter the anti-theft/unlock radio code. Press the "Tune" button on your stereo. It will change the screen from "CODE" to blank. Press the button to scroll through the available numbers. When you reach the correct number press the button once and hold it down for a few seconds. The number will appear on the display and you can now repeat the process to input the second number, third number etc., until all of the numbers are in. If you entered the code correctly the car stereo will unlock and instantly become functional. Depending on your car manufacturer, if you enter the code incorrectly you will not be able to re-enter it again from 1 to 24 hours.
    Without the Unlock Code
    • 4 Call your car manufacturer directly. Your car manufacturer's phone number is in your owner's manual. Ask to be connected to the support department. Tell them you need to reactivate you car stereo and you will be asked for proof of ownership. They will need your car's VIN number, the account number from your bill of sale and a form of personally identifiable information like your driver's license. You may need to fax this information. Once everything checks out the manufacturer will give you the code.
    • 5 Enter the code and unlock your stereo. Use the code you received from the manufacturer to unlock and and activate your car stereo.
    • 6 Go to a car dealership. Take your car to its manufacturer dealership to get the stereo unlocked. For example, if your car is a Honda go to a Honda dealership. Once you have proven that you are the owner of the car, the dealership will be able to retrieve the code from the manufacturer and activate the radio for you.

What is the stereo code for a 2008 Honda civic lx


It's different for each individual car. If you go to your local Honda Dealership they can look it up for you. They will need the VIN to get the code for your specific car. Bring your insurance card, registration, and photo ID to prove ownership.
Be sure not to write it down inside the car. Not the owner's manual or anything else kept inside the car.
The radio code is a form of anti theft. Keep the code at home or on you computer.

RADIO ERROR CODE


In my 03 Civic I have a credit card sized plastic card that came with the car. It has a password for the stock stereo (the original one that came with the car from the manufacturer.) It's for anti theft purpose. You will need this code if you lose power to the car such as a disconected battery or if you leave the lights on so long that it drains the battery. I would suggest contacting Honda if you don't have your radio code. You can also get an aftermarket stereo ant it'll work no problem. I hope I'm answering the question in the way intended.

Thanks,
Sam

I have just had my clutch done on my ford focus LX 2002 plate, and the stereo is asking me for a code, I cant get the stereo out of my car to get the serial number!! as its an old 5000RDS E.O.N cassette...


When they worked on your car they disconnected the battery. Now your stereo is in lock/anti-theft mode. Your Ford dealer can unlock. Explain the situation to them. (and build a reputation with them, even if it means taking it to them for oil changes.)

After a security code for a factory radio for a Mitsubishi Lancer


Hello,

This is to inform you that no one could provide you the code that you need. That code is also called the 'Anti-theft' code which is unique with every car stereo.

You need to check the glove box that's in your car and look for a card. That card should carry the anti-theft code for your stereo.

If you could not find it, you need to pull out the stereo and get the serial number of the stereo on the side of it. Then call the car dealer or the manufacturer. They are the only one who could provide you the unique code for your stereo.

You would get this problem once the battery run out of charge, once the battery has been removed or once you change your alternator.

Hope this helps and have a great day!
