    Radio codes are security related to discourage theft, so they are not published on the internet, if they were what would be the point?? any thief could ge the code after stealing your radio. Contact the dealer for instructions an what info u need to get your cars unique radio code.

Can a 1997 Dodge radio drain the battery?


No way the radio can draw that much power even when it is left on. Check the trunk light. On some models the back seat will fold down.
Also disconnect the negative battery terminal. Touch it to the post and listen for a relay click, If one clicks find what it runs.

I have a 1997 pontiac grand prix gt. I need help bad. My car has constant power running through it and its killing my battery. I think it started when I had my buddy redo my radio so I think he messed with...


As with any battery drain, you would pull the fuses and disconnect the major circuits while watching a test light or meter that is showing the drain. When you find the circuit in question the light goes off.
Then the fun begins trying to find the source of the drain. In your case you may want to start with disconnecting the radio. You may need a shop manual to get the wiring diagrams.

Replaced the Battery and my Mercedes benz 1996 C280 CD player is requesting a code, does anyone know if it is unique or universal code, please supply if the code is universal.


To reprogram the radio there is 4 digit code. That code has to be inserted, once these code is inserted, your car radio will get into its actual setting where you can set/select your radio setting.


Many a time's radio asks for the code after car battery is disconnected.

On some cases to retrieve the code its mentioned in manual or else car dealer is other option to get car radio code.

The check engine light went on on my 2003 MB c230. I took it for diagnostics and the shop shows a code of 201d-001 catalytic convertor is insufficient. It is a very pricey part. Should I have it rep


Hi,
Check the emissions warranty for your car - should be in the warranty and maintenance manual that came w/the owner's manual. The emissions warranty may be good 'til 100K miles and replacing the Catalytic Converter (CC) would be covered.

Also, call the MB dealer and ask 'nicely' about whether it's covered under a recall.

It could also just be a bad O2 sensor - not the CC. A failed 02 sensor can cause other issues or codes to occur.

But FIRST - have them reset/clear the code and see if it comes back....it may be a 'false-positive' and not really an issue.

BTW, don't disconnect your battery to reset the code - you may either lose your car stereo/codes or set off the alarm - unless you know how to fix both!

GL,

The battery for my 1997 benz C280 was changed ,now the radio says i need to enter a code. i dont have the code.i need an immediate assistance.the vin number is WDBHA28E1VF559569.


Check with a dealer, they can usually get you the code with proof of ownership, although some of them charge for it. I don't know about a MB, but I've had some luck looking on the internet, however they usually give you a flock of codes, and you need to keep on trying until you hit the correct one. Try the dealer first, and see what they will do for you. Good luck!

Need master code for radio in a 2000 ml320


Hi,

Regretfully due to reasons of theft or piracy we do not pass the radio codes here at FixYa. If you contact your local Mercedes-Benz dealer they will give you the 5 digit code. (You must have your registration and know the complete serial number of the radio)

The display on the radio and the radio wont come on its mercedes benz C230-1998. had to charge the battery


you will probably have to enter a code for your radio to work again, look in your owner's manual and if you do not have one then you will have to call a dealer and get the code or try searching online, sometimes you can get help there
