All newish sterios have a code which you would have to enter before use, this is usually found in the manual for the car if the stereo is factory fitted? if not then youi will have to rely on the previous owner/ person who had it fitted using his/her head and kept a note of this as it is practically impossible to find from manufacturer.

After replacing a battery the radio doesn't work. why does the radio have to be removed to get the code to fix it?


it has an anti-theft radio that needs a code to unlock it in case it get stolen it becomes useless the to the thief. the code is programed into the radio without removal by using the controls on the face of the radio. you may have to go to the dealer to have re-programed.

Whats happends if you take it in to get the starter fixed on it how long does it take? Also when I got it back from the Auto shop My tape radio does not work and says loc does not even turn on. It was...


q1; time to fix, (fix can be 25 things wrong, and each FIX is diffrent times)
a dead starter can be 5min fix to 2 hours.(replaced)
is the battery good, and charged? if not , its not the starter.
if battery is good, then its the start system, it is a system of wires and solenoid and starter. ( does the starter hot wire and work?)
if yes, its not a bad starter. (hot wired at the solenoid)
took me 2hrs to replace a starter, and 1hr second time.
depends on, if bolts are seized, or bad, or wont budge.
if you live in the SALT belt, it can be a real hard job.
q2: dead head, the radio (tape, wow tape, is like old tech) is dead?
tape and A/M and F/M are dead?
well, you apply power to it , and if dead, it is. time for new Radio,etc.
yes there is a fuse.
is your radio programmable. ? sure it is.
when replacing a battery, or starter, one kills the radio program storage. that is norm effect, unless mech has my magic tool that stops that.
few have the magic tool, a cig lighter plug with a 9v battery inside.
also , you lose alarm programming, and any other fancy gear that needs battery to hold programming..
there are only 3 costs.
1: diagnosis.
2: parts
3: labor.
all 3 vary by LOCATION.

There a two power wires to the radio, one to power the radio (which appears to be working) and a second to keep the programming (which does not appear to be working). Check that all the fuses are good (there is probably one for the memory).

Changed Battery, and Alternator, and radio quit. I cannot tell if its a blow fuse. I do not have a manual so it cannot tell which fues to replace for the radio.


If you have a theft deterrant system, then the radio has a small chip that will shut the radio down if the power to the radio (battery) is interrupted for longer than 30 minutes. The radio has a capacitor that holds the charge on the chip for a timed period and when that charge leaks off, the chip forgets it's instructions on how to operate the radio. This is so that if the radio is stolen, then it will not operate. Usually when you do work on the vehicle that will leave the battery disconnected for more than 30 minutes, you would clip a 9V battery across the leads to maintain the charge on the radio. You are going to have to take the vehicle to a dealer that has the ability to re-program the radio, as they are generally the only people authorized to have the programming equipment. the cost is about 25 bucks.

Cd in car stereo won't eject. I have a 2005 Chrysler T&C van and there is a CD in my stero that won't eject. Any suggestions?


Try turning the radio off and disconnecting the battery for 2 min then reconnect the battery and turn on the radio. This may reset the radio to default so you can eject the CD and reset your station preset and clock. make sure the radio is off before disconnecting the battery or your going to be prompt to program a radio code. Good luck and this should work.

2004 saturn vue Replaced battery. Radio and Cd no longer work.


Turn off the car and remove the negative battery cable off. let sit a few minutes then reconnect the cable. try it several times. The removal of the battery causes the computer to deprogram itself. what you will be doing is re-programming the computer module.
