    u have locked the radio out, u must enter the unique security code to get it working, the dealer is the only one that can get this for you if u don't have it, it came with the car when it was sold new.

2005 Chevy Aveo that won't start. Lights etc. turn on and there is a clicking sound but car won't start.

Check the positive cable going to the start and the negative cable going to the ground,are the cable tight at the battery.

2000 f150 not starting

I would start by checking to see if the battery cables are clean and tight. Look for broke or disconnected wiring. Is the shifter all the way in the park position? Chek to see if the starter motor pinion is jammed in flywheel ring gear. Starter solenoid might be faulty. Then check the ignition switch and system. Hope that Helps.

I resently did work on my 97 gmc jimmy and took out the battery. when in got done and put the battery back nothing worked. no lights no radio no nothing. now my battery was charged and theres power going...

It's a cable issue. What type of work did you do? Anyway there are two cables coming from positive terminal, one straight to battery one to pdc (fuse block) gm has poor set up there clean retighten not too tight. Or during your work a ground was left loose or undone. Security not the problem. Turn on headlights wiggle either cable till they flicker thats where problem lies.

Turn the ignition to radio position and wait. This may take anything between 10 minutes and four hours, so be patient. When the radio wakes up and asks the code, punch it in.

Radio wont work but navigation and tv working

Dude, i had the same problem. I tightened up the relay from the positive terminal on the battery that sits right next to the terminal, i took off the negative and put it back on, and unplugged the wires that go from amp to speakers and plugged them back in. started working fine. It would be your best bet to reset the comp by taking off neg. and putting back on.
