You need to call the car company or take it to a car dealership to get the code for the radio to unlock it.

I had someone change the radio in my 1998 camry and it did work. My battery went dead, dead and once I replaced battery the radio now doesn't work. Why>


Car radios have security codes to prevent them from being stolen. If they lose power, such as when replacing the battery, they lock out. This makes them worthless to anyone trying to steal them. You need to have the unlock code to reactivate the radio. It is provided with the vehicle at purchase, or by the retailer when selling replacements

A volvo dealership can tell you , or if you have the owners manual , and are lucky , you might find that the original owner wrote the code down in the book somewhere.

My potiac g6 died jumped it and now the radio will


The radio most likely went into lock mode as this happens when there is a power interuption as when battery goes dead. Have your dealer unlock radio as they may have to hook up to computer or give you unlock code as I donot know which model of radio you have.

Radio dead after battery failure. possible anti theft code required?


Yes, alot of cars have this feature. It is a anti-theft feature so if it is removed you need a code to unlock the radio (or if the battery is unpluged). If it's an after market deck than it should be in the manual if no manual than try googling it. If it is the factory deck than more than likly you will have to go back to the dealer to get the code. Good luck.
