I'm guessing you are trying to say that you repaired the timing belt, had to disconnect the battery, and now your radio no longer works, either it is off or locked and you need the code? Take the radio out of the car, on the top there is a serial #, call up your local mitsu dealership and ask them for the code, give them the serial # and they should be able to look it up for you. If they try to charge you for it, just call a different dealership, its free as long as they don't have to pull the radio out.

Battery is gone on toyota verso, wont open and wont start


When I have a car with a hood that won't open, I'll go through the grill (a matter of Torx(tm) or phillips screwdrivers/sockets/small pry bars, etc.) and operate the hood latch by reaching up under the hood from below, or even disassemble the entire hood latch away from the frame (usually 3-4 10mm machine screws).
This will get you into the engine compartment.
Try to get into your engine compartment sooner rather than later, since a flat dead battery will cause the stereo radio to assume that its been stolen, and then it'll require entry of your 3,4 or 5-digit unlock code before the radio works again.
Your radio unlock code can be found on a card that comes from the dealership at the time of sale. If you need to ask the dealership for your unlock code and they charge you money, consider calling/dealing with a different dealership (its a 2-second computer lookup for them) or post another query to www.FixYa.com asking for your car radio unlock code, specifying the car's year/make/model/engine type and also the radio model number - you'll have to yank the radio to get the model number.
Your car's "engine type" comes from the 8th digit of your car's VIN code (the 17-digit number visible thru the windshield at the bottom of the driver's side).

How do you unlock the stereo in a Chevy 2002 Silverado?


You will have to access a 6 digit code out of the radio Theftlock system then still go to a dealership to get the 4 digit code that unlocks the radio. Most people put in a radio code (4 digits) when new then forget it years later when the battery is replaced or radio removed. Press preset buttons #2 & #3 at the same time with the key in run position and radio on. A 3 digit code should be displayed (write it down) then immediately press the AM/FM button, another 3 digit code will appear. Take the 6 digit code to a GM dealer. They will call Delcotronics with the generic 6 digit code and get you the master unlock code for your radio. You can dial it in using the scan buttons (best to ask the dealer how, or get them to do it). Once set you can change it again or write down the master unlock code and keep it somewhere for the next time the battery is disconnected. If you can't access the 6 digit code, you will still need to bring it to a dealership and have it unlocked by reprogramming it. It actually is a module on the data line and can create trouble codes and be programmed. It can not be taken from your truck and used in any other vehicle unless programmed to that vehicle.

When i try to turn my radio on it says loc hoow do i unlock it?


Does your GM car or truck Radio display LOC and does not turn on? Chevrolet, Buick, Pontiac, GMC, Cadillac, Oldsmobile vehicles used a theft system to lock the radio when power is lost. This system was used from the ealy 1990's to the early 2000's.

Instructions:
  1. If your radio displays the word LOC, you can retrieve a set of factory numbers in the radio that enable you to get a backup unlock code. If the radio says INOP, you will have to leave the key in the "ON" position, or let the car run for at least 1 hour before you attempt any unlock procedure. INOP means a secondary theft lock due to too many false attempts to unlock the radio.
  2. Looking at the face of your GM Delco radio, hold down the preset buttons 1 & 4 OR 2 & 3 (Depending on year and model) for approximately 10 seconds or until a set of 2 or 3 numbers comes up on the display. Write the numbers down.
  3. Next press the AM / FM button. A new set of 3 numbers will now show. Write these numbers down. You will then need to call a 1-800 phone number with these numbers to get the unlock code. There are many sites on the internet that can get it for you- for a small fee. Or, try calling your local GM Dealer and ask for them to do it. Many times they will do it for free. It only takes a minute.
  4. Once you have the unlock code, enter it by pressing the MIN button until the display shows the last 2 digits of the unlock code, then press the HR button until the first 2 numbers or shown. Then press the AM / FM button to enter the code. The radio will now display SEC, and normal function is restored.
Also, its possible that you need RESET your GM Radio; this is the procedure: While performing maintenance on your car, you may disconnect the radio from the battery in your GM vehicle. GM cars contain Delco radios that are protected by Theftlock, which locks the radio after it has been disconnected from a power source. Iit can only be reset and unlocked with a car-specific security code. Identifying the security code for your GM vehicle is the only way to reset the car radio and disable the Theftlock protection device.

Instructions:
  1. Turn on your car. Your Delco radio will show "LOC" in the LED display.
  2. Press and hold down both the second and third preset buttons. Hold these buttons down for at least six seconds.
  3. Write down the two- or three-digit code that appears in the LED display.
  4. Press the AM/FM button on the radio.
  5. Write down the next two- or three-digit code that appears in the LED display. You should be left with either a four- or six-digit number. Turn off your car.
  6. Call the Delco radio automated customer support line at 1-800-537-5140.
  7. Press "1" and then press the pound sign. The automated voice should respond "Invalid code, try again."
  8. Enter the number 139010 into your phone and then press the "*" sign.
  9. Enter the four- or six-digit number you wrote down from Steps 3 and 5, and then press the "*" button.
  10. Write down the four-digit code given by the automated voice.
  11. Turn on your car. Enter the Delco unlock code using the procedure outlined by your GM owner's manual. Normally, the unlock code is entered with the "HR" and "MN" buttons on your radio.
  12. Press the AM/FM button. If you have entered the code correctly, your LED display will read "SEC" and the radio will be unlocked.

NEEDED TO ENTER RADIO CODE AFTER RE-CONNECTING BATTERY IN CAR. 1ST I LOCKED IT UP - THEN LATER WAS ABLE TO ENTER 4-DIGIT CODE, BUT IT JUST SITS THERE ON DISPLAY SCREEN. AFTER KEYING THE CODE-WHAT SH/YOU...


You should be able to press the menu (or select or func) button depending on model. If this doesn't work it may be the wrong code. Your best bet might be to take the car to your local mitsi dealer where they can unlock the radio for you (i had a similar problem with my '94 Commodore).
