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

Testimonial: "the radio is store bought not OEM Now what?"

    Check your paperwork to see if the store bought stereo has a reset code, or if it even needs one. Many aftermarket units don't. If your does, and you don't have the reset code, you may be able to get the code from the manufacturer. They may require you to provice proof of legitimate purchase, however.

How do you reset a non original radio 1998 camry


Wandm mmy friend it would be a major help if you could tell me the make and model of your radio. I will say this, most aftermarket radios have a 3 shot counter. What that means is after 3tmes youll have to let it sit with the key on(acc) for usually. 2to3hours before it will accept anymore attemps.

Battery went dead 1998 lumina now radio and lighter won't work


90 % chances you also have a shorted alternator it kills the battery.
I have two Luminas and one Malibu and Corvette (mid/late 1990- 2000's) they have the same problems... suddenly dead batteries
Please check alternator when replacing batery.

1998 Jaguar xj8 sport 48000 miles on clock, stood for a while in winter and battery went flat and remote wouldnt work, charged battery up, remote still wouldnt work so changed batteries as recommended in...


the remote may have come un-synchronised. (Due to a heavy knock or interference from a radio transmitter source. Like someones speed radar detector, or when the battery went flat.)

Consult your dealer on the synchronising process. This is an involved process but easy enough to do yourself at home!

I changed my battery in my 1998 Volkswagen Jetta GLS and need my radio code.


Call dealership they can give it to you and if you call on a cell phone from the car you can tell the dealerif you have a problem right then. My battery went dead and that's what I did. Most cars with radio codes are all the same for their cars.

Toyota radio code


Johnny5486:

Emissionwiz is correct, but, his information is for older Model Camrys.

The 2003 "factory-installed" radios in the Camry product line does not have an anti-theft feature, and, because of having no anti-theft feature, there is no reactivation code. If you have a dead battery, the only thing you will lose regarding the radio functions would be the radio stations that you programmed into the memory. The radio will function properly after a dead battery is replaced with no issues.
