Depends on the radio you bu. If the radio you get has a removable face then the code is stored in the face. If you get a radio that is all one part then it will have a code that you will have to enter every time the battery is removed. If the battery removal is something you do regularly then go to a battery supply shop and enquire about a back up pack that plugs into the data link and maintains all the electronic settings while the battery is out

    type in free radio codes on the net and search for your make of radio. Contact the dealer from where the car was bought originally and they should have the code on record. If you have the owners hand book it may be written in the book somewhere.

Need a code for radio to unlock had to disconnect battery serial number is v259329 thank you

If this is a factory installed radio, you can go to the car dealer that sells these cars new and the parts department can give you the unlock code by the serial number of the car.
That is not to say they will be nice and friendly. Some are not.
If the radio has been installed after the car was sold, I can only wish I could help you.
God bless your efforts.

How do I fix alternator on Honda civic 2005?


Make sure you have the radio unlock code for your Civic, if equipped with the anti-theft radio. Disconnect your negative battery cable and gather the tools required for the procedure. Make sure your workplace is safe and well-lit.

Remove the drive belt to better access the alternator. Remove the 4P connector from the alternator, and then remove the battery wiring module.

Use your socket wrench to remove the alternator bolts, and then slip the alternator away from its mount.

Mount the new alternator in its place. Use the torque wrench to tighten the bolts to 33 ft.-lbs. This is the specific rating for the Honda Civic, do not disregard this. Not properly tightening the bolts could cause problems.

Attach the 4P connection and the battery wiring module. Replace the drive belt and reconnect the negative battery cable.

Make sure your radio and air conditioning are turned off, and then crank the engine. Rev the engine to 3,000 RPM with the vehicle in park. Hold it in this position under you hear the radiator fan turn on.

Take your foot off the accelerator and let the engine idle for five minutes. Set your clock and use your code to unlock your radio.

2001 daewoo lanos immobiliser problem car wont start. entered radio security code. immobiliser dash light is still on.

Radio code has no bearing on the immobiliser at all.

Normally it is down to the key not recognised. Are you using the same / usual key as before? If not then try original or another key as it may be the transponder in the key you are using.

If same key or no joy then remove the lower Black plastic steering cowls on the column (normally 3 or 4 screws) you will expose the barrell assy, on the end of this you'll see the transponder pick up ring. Disconnect from loom, apply silicone grease to pins and reconnect then try starting.

If still no joy, disconnect positive terminal off the battery, touch the lead to an earth point for 2 to 3 seconds to defuse and reset ECU, reconnect and try again.

If still noy joy you will need a garage as special reading equipment is required.

Need the free radio code to unlock a Honda Accord EX 2002 factory installed radio. Son -in-laaw disconnected the battery and now the radio is locked. Get an error message. Radio, Cd nothing will play. How...

If the code is not written on the radio casing or inside the glove compartment, in/under the ashtray, behind the sun visor (or similar “hidden” place inside your car ) then the majority of HONDA codes may be available here

You will require the car VIN number and Radio serial Number

If they cannot provide your code then you will have to try your HONDA Main Dealer .....or a Decode Service who will plug in a laptop to read/recode the memory chip (EEPROM)

Ford Festive Radio Code

Check the your owners manual, if your lucky the original owner wrote it down when they bought the care. If not you will need to get the code from the dealer. You might even need to take the car to the dealer to have the radio unlocked. Some auto manufacturers have designed their radios to require a code whenever the battery is disconnected, in order to make the stereos worthless to theives, and thereby discourage theft. Ususally it just creates headaches for the owner of the vehicle.

I want to change the battery

Unless you Have AoolCodes DEALER IS A GOOD IDEA

Disconnecting/Connecting The Battery

Always stop the engine before disconnecting the battery negative lead and make sure the battery positive lead is isolated i.e. wrapped in a suitable cloth.

WARNING: Radio code saving devices must not be used when conducting work on air bag or fuel systems. It must be noted that, when using these devices, the vehicle electrical system is still live albeit with a reduced current flow.

NOTE: Before disconnecting the battery make sure that the radio receiver/cassette player/mini disc player and compact disc player keycodes are known and, that no data is required from the powertrain control module as battery disconnection will erase any fault codes and idle/drive values held in the Keep Alive Memory (KAM). It is not necessary to disconnect or remove electronic control modules.

Always disconnect the battery before commencing repair operations which require:
  • The vehicle to be jacked up
  • Work on the engine
  • Work underneath the vehicle
  • Arc welding
Alternatively a Radio Code Saver may be used. With the battery disconnected, a Radio Code Saver will allow sufficient current to pass to maintain the radio receiver/cassette player/mini disc player and compact disc player memory, operate the clock and supply the door operated interior lights while isolating the battery in the event of a short circuit.

Reconnecting the Battery

WARNING: If the battery has been on bench charge the cells may be giving off explosive hydrogen gas. Avoid creating sparks, and if in doubt cover the vent plugs or covers with a damp cloth.

Always make sure that all electrical systems are switched OFF before reconnecting the battery to avoid causing sparks or damage to sensitive electrical equipment.

Always reconnect the battery positive lead first and the negative last, ensuring that there is a good electrical contact and the battery terminals are secure.

Restart the clock (where fitted) and set it to the correct time.

Re-enter the radio receiver/cassette player/mini disc player and compact disc player keycodes and preset' frequencies, if known.

Following reconnection of the battery, the engine should be allowed to idle until it has reached normal operating temperature as the stored idle and drive values contained within the powertrain control module have been lost. Allow the vehicle to idle for a further three minutes . Drive the vehicle at constant speeds of approximately 48 km/h (30 mph), 64 km/h (40 mph), 80 km/h (50 mph), 96 km/h (60 mph) and 112 km/h (70 mph) for three minutes each. This may cause a driveability concern if the procedure is not carried out. This will allow the powertrain control module to relearn idle values.
