The correct radio SERIAL NUMBER is required for a code

First remove the radio from the dashboard.

Then post the radio make+model plus all the letters+numbers on any labels,barcodes and a 14 character Serial Number stamped in the metal casing.

This information can then be used to see if a code can be calculated

Take to the dealer, they will need the vin to be able to give you the code. Play their game, "wouldn't you like to find a replacement".

Why won't my radio in my 2003 Ford Focus work after replacing the alternator?


There is an anti-theft device in the radio that activates when you remove the battery lead. You will need a code for the radio to turn it back on.

On my 2011 dodge journey my battery died then I jump started it and now my radio and all that controls my climate and won't come on what would be the problem??


with the battery dying the radio and equipment that has anti theft circuits have had the anti theft codes activated . You will need a code for the radio before it will work again and for anything else may be a reset of the CPU using a scanner will be the answer.

Need to no the anti theft radio code for a Honda accord 1995 vti


When you disconnect your battery and then reconnect it again, it disables the radio. This is an anti-theft protection for your car radio.
The enable your radio the activation code is in your vehicle owner's manual. If you do not have this code you need to go to your Honda service centre and get them to enter this code for you.

My battery died so i replaced it and now my radio won't come on. Tried holding down power button, turning on and off ignition. Still has no power. the battery was out of the car for about 4 hours.


If your radio has anti-theft system you will have to go to the dealer and get the accss code to reactivate the radio if you dont have the code already. GM vehicles with anti-theft radios will lock when power is lost to the system if the radio is not turned off prior to battery disconnect or dying.

Anti theft activated-now car won't start and radio won't work. Radio won't take radio code and car cranks but doesn't start, horn blares, and headlights flash. I don't have the other code for the anti...


to turn off the theft system, all you have to do is put the key in the door lock and lock and unlock the door, this shuts down the anti theft system,now this has nothing to do with the radio, the only way the radio would ask for the code is if it was removed or the battery unhooked,anyway try the unlocking of the door even try the passenger door, hope this helps.

The battery died on my 2001 eclipse, now the radio only says ''off''?


This is the anti-theft device on your factory radio. When the battery died, the radio thought it had been removed from your car and went into anti-theft mode. When you turned the car back on, the radio should have read "CODE" on the display, at which point you need to enter the factory anti-theft code. After 3 failed attempts at entering the code, it will simply read "OFF" and the radio is locked.

At this point:
- find your factory anti-theft code - it should be in your owner's manual, or you can contact a dealer to retrieve it
- turn the key to the ACC position (radio and accessories on, but engine is off)
- turn on the radio so the display reads "OFF"
- let the car sit for 1 hour
- radio will turn off automatically and reset
- turn the radio on again, and it should read "CODE"
- enter the factory anti-theft code

Make sure you have the code before starting the procedure. To enter the code, use the radio preset buttons. For example, if your code is "4321", hit Preset #1 button four times, Preset #2 three times, Preset #3 two times, and Preset #4 one time. Then hit the "Tape" or "CD" button. Radio should now be unlocked.

I need a code to activate my radio on my 02 jaguar x type


Hello,

I wanted to help you with it, but no one could provide you the exact code for the radio because it is an anti-theft code. Anti-theft is a feature of the radio so that once the radio is removed from the car or if you remove or change the battery of your car, you could never use it unless you have the exact code.

Now, check the glove box of your car and there should be a card that has that code. If you couldn't find it, take the radio out, get the serial number of the radio and contact the dealer or the manufacturer of the car. Give them the serial number and they would provide you the activation code.

Best regards,

Radio anti-theft code needed for '96 volvo sedan 850


Try to un connect battery, wait 10 minuets and connect the battery. After that you can type in code again. Volvo dealer should have the radio code. The code is writhed in to a computer system on the factory.
