Some dealers put the radio's antitheft code in the owners manual. If it's not there call your local dealer and they can reset the code for a fee.

hi, this is a very common problem that people have when they have had work done on their vehicles and had the battery disconnected, the problem is their only one way of solving your problem that is by going to the main dealers their is no other way of doing this as they do this so as people dont steal the radios and then unlock them themselves.
You need to take the car with you as they wont give you the code over the phone in case you have stolen the stereo so taking the car to the main dealers is the only way your going to get this code and get your audio system working again.
Their is no here else you can get the codes from so sorry i cant give you any easy solution to this problem the only way is to take your car to the main dealers you might even need the log book or owners book with you.
Once they give you this code its best you write it down in case you need it in the future or when you come to sell the car at least you can pass this info onto the new owner.
Let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok

I would suggest to you to have the spiral cable (or 'clockspring') replaced. This is the electrical unit that transfers power to the air bag, the horn and the cruise control.
It is located right under the seering wheel.
Your description of the issue indicates to me that your spiral cable is loose, and making intermittant contact. If the vehicle had an air-bag deployment, this cable-device should have been changed.

This got me too. Until I found there is a second fuse inside the engine bay fuse panel. You've checked the fuses inside the car under the steering wheel, now check the fuse panel next to your battery. Open your hood, and find the plastic cover to the fuse.relay panel. remove the clips and pull lid off. Turn the lid so it's oriented properly for the labels, and find the rad fuse and pull it to check it visually.
