I have a ''LOCKED'' code on car radio. How can I unlock

I have searched the web. The ''LOCKED'' code always requires dealer visit. They charge about $ 100.00. Is there a way to unlock without dealer. It is not ''LOC'', but ''LOCKED''.

Safe mode car radio


To unlock your VW factory radio from "SAFE" mode, you will need to enter the radio code. Typically, the code is written on a radio card included with the documentation for the vehicle when the car is first sold.

If you don't have the code, or have lost it, you can retrieve it by visiting your VW dealer. You will need the car's VIN number and the serial number of the radio (located on the body of the radio).

The procedure to enter the code is as follows:

Press the "MODE" and "SCAN" buttons simultaneously and hold them until "1000" appears on the radio display. Release the buttons as soon as this number appears.

Refer to your Radio Card and use the station preset buttons ("1", "2", "3" and "4") to input the code. Press the "1" button repeatedly to input the first digit, the "2" button to input the second digit, etc.

Press and hold the "MODE" and "SCAN" buttons simultaneously until "SAFE" appears again. Release, and the radio should be unlocked.

Do not enter the wrong code more than three times, or the radio will lock itself. Note the dealer can also enter the code for you (they may charge a small fee).

Code to unlock the radio/CD player


Code is specific to your vehicle .. Dealers are not supposed to charge for unlocking and they should have given you the code to write down in your owners manual.

I have a 2002 Buick Rendezvous CX with a locked radio.


what you need to do is pull the radio out and write down the serial number then call the dealer for the code. they may charge you 15-25 bucks but that will save you some money

2002 Acura 3.5RL. Radio is locked and I don't know the serial number. How can I find out what the code is to unlock the radio?


You need to get the serial number off the sticker attached to the radio. It will require pulling apart your dash. Call an Acura dealership with that serial number and they should be able to provide you the code. Or you can take it directly to the dealer but you will be charged labor.

My 2004 cavalier stereo is locked.i put a


That's the anti theft lock... It's not a system that comes with every car radio, but i've saw a few of those on cavaliers and sunfires, and a few civics, and i think a couple others have some too, but i've only personnally seen and worked with the ones i mentioned. In any case, unfortunetly even if i know how they work, there is no easy way to get them unlocked and working again. You need the special code for that specific radio, and to get it you don't have the choice to go to you GM dealer and ask them to do it. You need their special machines to get the codes and get the radio unlocked, there is no other way other than changing it for an aftermarket radio again like before. So if you really want to get the OEM radio going again, go with the car to your GM dealer to prove to them it's not stolen and they will get the codes from the GM support center with their dealer code and will unlock your radio, but of course they will charge for it, dealers never give any gifts to anyone.:p So ask them how much they charge for the service, cause in some cases, buying an aftermarket radio will cost less.

If I replace the delco radio in my 2003 grand am gt with another from the auto recyclers, do i have to get the dealer to clear the vin codes? I put one in and it shows locked status. I searched and found...


this is not true. all the dealer needs to due is to depress the #2 & #4 preset radio buttons to get a 6 diget code so they can call GM to get the 4 diget unlock code.
They just a bunch a money, however it does require some time even for someone that knows how to do it.
