Try disconnecting the battery for a few mins to reset everything. This may work.

Can I retrieve the radio code with the Odyssey vin number? The code is not in the glove. I do not have the manual.

No, the stereo unlock code cannot be retrieved with the VIN.

You can get the unlock code for free from any Honda Dealer. You will need to give them the stereo serial number from the back of the stereo or written on a card (or possibly the manual) provided when the vehicle was new. If the dealer removes the stereo to retrieve the serial number they will charge around $100.

DANGER: Do not try to enter the code randomly! The stereo will lock out after 10 incorrect attempts.

97 S90 Volvo with original radio per Previous owner. Radio worked before Battery replaced. Called dealer and Got code, put it in and got rpt message. Several attempts- still no Working radio! HELP...

ok rpt stands for repeat. when it says that it is the wrong code that you are putting in. you only get three trys on this. after the third time it will say off. you must wait 2 hrs with the stereo on until you can try putting a code in. you need to find the right code for that stereo.inside your manual book there should be a credit card size card that has a four digit code on it. that is your stereo code. put that in and your stereo should be up in running. good luck

My 2008 chevy uplander , had to change radio (cd player not working) now radio is locked, how can I unlock it?

Try this: How to Unlock a Chevy Radio Step 1: Start the vehicle and turn on the radio.
Step 2: Press and hold preset numbers 2 and 3 until a three digit code appears on the radio display. Write this code down.
Step 3: Press the AM/FM button. Your radio will display a second three digit code. Write the second code down. You will now have a six digit code.
Step 4: Call the Chevy Radio Code phone line at 1-800-537-5140.
Step 4: Enter 106010 followed by the # key to direct you to the radio code retrieval system.
Step 5: Enter the six digit code you retrieved in steps 2 and 3 followed by the * key. They must be in order. You will be given a four digit radio code. Write down the radio code.
Step 6: Start your vehicle and turn on the radio. Using the Minute and Hour buttons, enter in the four digit radio code to your stereo system. Press the AM/FM button to unlock your stereo.
How to Unlock a GM Radio Step 1: Start the vehicle and turn on the radio. The radio will display "LOC" indicating the Theftlock system is activated.
Step 2: Press and hold preset buttons 1 and 4 for ten seconds. (If you don't have a fourth preset button, press and hold presets 2 and 3.) The radio will display a three digit number. Write this number down.
Step 3: Press the AM/FM button. Your radio will display a second three digit code. Write the second code down. You will now have a six digit code.
Step 4: Contact your local GM Dealer and give them the six digit code. They will give you a four digit radio code.
Many dealers will give you your radio code for free, while others may charge a small fee. If your dealer is charging a larger fee, consider calling another dealer or doing a Google search for sites offering GMC Radio codes. They usually charge a small (around $10) fee.
Step 5: Start your vehicle and turn on the radio. Press the Hour button on the radio until the first two number of the code appear. Next, press the Minute button until the last two numbers of the code are displayed. Once all four digits appear, press the AM/FM button to unlock your stereo. The display will read "SEC" indicating you have successfully unlocked your radio and it is fully operational.
If radio display reads "INOP" while the vehicle is on, too many incorrect radio codes have been entered. To remove "INOP" from your display and unlock your radio, you must leave the key in the On position for one hour. Once you've retrieved your radio unlock code, write it down for future use. Your radio code will not change and having it handy will save from going from the radio code retrieval process again.

Factory Radio CD player partial failure. Was driving shake down cruise, stopped for gas, no key response when ready to go. Positive terminal on battery was loose, secured. Then the stereo would not play...

The dealer is trying to rip you off. Your stereo has the Delco Loc II anti-theft system that locks the stereo in the event of a power loss or anytime the battery is disconnected. Here are the instructions on getting the unlock code number. Write these numbers down as they appear on your stereo. 1. Turn on the ignition but leave the radio off. 2. Hold down the preset buttons 1&2 or 3&4 for about 10 seconds. A 3 digit number wilkl appear. Write this down as the first three digits of the code. 3. Now press the am/fm button. The display will change to another 3 digit number. Write this down as the second three digits of the code. You will now have a 6 digit code. Call this toll free number and follow the prerecorded voice intructions and they weill give you a code to enter into your stereo to unlock it and make it work again. If this toll free number is not working, call your dealership and ask them to give you the toll free number to call. If it's a decent dealership, they will call the number for you and get the code you need, but I would'nt count on it. The number is 1-800-537-5140. If this is any help to you,, please vote. Your owners manual will give you instructions on how to enter the unlock code. If you have trouble with that or don't have an owners manual, I can help you with it. Good luck.
