I have a 1995 Toyota Land Cruiser, I have a radio that is not working due to changing the battery. I cannot obtain the code from Toyota and I provided them with the model # 86120-33040. The Serial # 110969 and the reference# CQ-JS8410A The faceplate also has a number 56807 and I can only enter in a 3-digit code. What else do I need to do? They want to charge me 60 to 100 for this old radio but if I can't do this for free I might as well get a new one for the same price. Any help? Thanks!

The computer probably needs to reset to clear the code. Best way is go to Auto Zone or Advance Auto and ask them to reset the comupter. It can be done by disconnecting the negative battery cable from the battery, but then you may have problems with the security system, and you can loose stored info in your radio, etc.So I suggest you have the computer cleared of codes.
The sec displayed is security code in case radio is stolen it cant be used without entering the code. Owner may have disconnected battery and didnt put a memory saver in lighter outlet so it locked. If you go to dealer they can retrive the code for you then you enter code and radio should work.unless they changed the factory code. If not and code from dealer works keep in car or safe place so you have it. Usually no charge to do retrival at dealer takes 2 minutes. Hope this helps
When you disconnect your battery and then reconnect it again, it disables the radio. This is an anti-theft protection for your car radio. The enable your radio the activation code is in your vehicle owner's manual. If you do not have this code you need to go to your Toyota service centre and get them to enter this code for you.
unfortunately, this is a security measure added to most manufacture
if you are lucky and have the original paper work in
the glove box you should find the radio code
you talk nicely to your local dealer and tell them how much you love
your car and the factory radio, they may unlock it for you....Make sure
you tell them you would HATE to replace it with an aftermarket radio,
but if you have to pay $100 for the code that is what you are going to

Visited local Toyota dealer and got copy of radio operation book relevent to my vehicle which contained info on how to fix. If I hadn't had security code Toyota dealer could have attached system to diagnostic computer and resolved the issue - not sure at what cost.
You have to go to your local Toyota dealership with proof of ownership of the vehicel. Once that is proven they will be more than happy to issue you the security code for your vehicle. If you do not take your vehicle with you, make sure you at least have the vin number as they will need it to get your code.
If I recall from my 98 Disco 1, if you don't have the security code from the owners manual then you have to leave the motor turned on constantly for something like one hour to override the security block and code. I learned this the hard way and then finally found the codes hidden away in the glovebox. Initially I drove around for over an hour (I think it was) with the radio power on and it finally came back on.
look in owners manual or on glove box door there should be a sticker with your radio code if not you will have to remove radio and get serial number off radio and call your local dealer and they will be able to give you the code from that serial number
