If the radio displays code or wait, then you have to make sure the ignition stays on for 1 hour before trying to enter the code. It is also possible the dealer gave you the wrong code. BMW had 3 different makers of radios back then. Blaupunkt, Pioneer, and Alpine. Make sure they checked which maker of your radio was.

Hello'i need a code to unlock radio in 2001 fordcourier ' thanks

I would check your owners manual to see if somewhere in the packet or elsewhere there is something with the security code on it. If it is not there, then your best bet would be to go to the Ford dealer and see if they can help you unlock it. That has worked for me once in the past and they didn't charge me anything for it. Good Luck

Your Ford dealer can do this, or search "Car radio unlock codes" on a well known auction website, 99p worth a try.

How to unlock my radio (5000 rds) lock 13 M274131

Take that code and your car's registration to your local Ford dealer's parts department. They can look up the unlock code for you. You will need to input the code to unlock your radio. Write the code down in your owners manual, so that next time this happens [any time the battery is dead or disconnected] you will have to code to unlock the radio.

The only way to retrieve your unlock code will be going to the Volvo dealer unfortunately.Simple go to the service department at the dealer ship you might have to have your vehicle ownership and they might charge a small fee.

Can you help me unlock my Audi A6 radio.

hi, the only place you can get this code from is the main dealers you use to be able to get them over the phone but they no longer do this as thieves were knicking the stereos then ringing up and getting the unlock code and then selling them on, so all car dealers now will only give the code out if you take the car to them and the owners documents and some id they wont charge for giving you this code but make sure you write it down for future reference.

Im sorry their is no easy fix for this problem but its going to be a case of taking the car to the main dealers and asking them for the code this will then solve your problem.

Let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok

Unlock radio for a 1996 monta carlo?

hi friend,
Your car has a anti theft radio in it . What has happened is at one time some one entered a code into the radio. What you are going to need to do is stop at your GM dealer and have them unlock the radio. The charge will be approx 30$ (that's what my dealer charges) Make sure you specify that you want the old code removed. Also ask them for the four digit backup code they get when they call GM. They will press numbers 2 and 3 on your radio and get digits then they will press am fm button and get two more digits and with those digits they will call a 1-800 number that only GM can call and they will get the unlock code. Sorry but I cannot divulge the number. Big TROUBLE!!! Hope I have helped
UNLOCK Code is:
Ignition ON
Hold Minutes for first numbers
Hold Hours for last numbers
Press AM/FM Button
Turn ON Radio

hope this helps u
please rate me.................
thank u for using fixya
