I had a similar problem on my ford probe. i found that the fixed live to the radio had split. it left me with only switched power from the ignition. over time it shorted out and i lost radio, central locking and dash lights. i replaced the fuse in the back of radio and had to have the wiring checked! oddly when it was checked over no other faults were found apart from the split live.i replaced the live feed, reconnected the battery and everything was fine. Dont know if this helps but u never know. Good Luck

How to get into programming mode to program a remote?


Few Toyota models came equipped with remote door locks before 2008 - surprisingly!

Your car may not have the radio receiver to work with door locks. In that case, you need the radio and some wireing to pair with your remotes.

The radio not turning off when you turn off your vehicle could have something to do with your ignition switch, and the accessory position on the ignition switch itself. On older vehicles, this becomes worn out, and a little sloppy. This in turn causes the ignition switch to provide power to the accessories even when it should not. It's a far shot in the dark, but It's a possibility.

1998 s70 volvo how to get radio working after unhooking battery post


You will need a Battery Charger set on low. Park your S70 hooked up to a charger. Turn the ignition switch to Accessory with out starting the engine and so the ignition is not on. It is the first single hash mark above the key, make sure it is lined up and you have power to the Radio, it will say Off. Leave it like this undisturbed for at least 2 hours and the Radio will reset itself.

AAA advised me to open and close door with key


Yes. Because the security system was "set". You need the code to unlock the security system for the radio. It is like that for theft pruposes. Best bet is to go to the dealership to have them reset it or figure out how to get the code for your radio.

1993 mazda 626: could not get trans out of park!


Ignition lock is activated: You over rode it but still have original problem. Alarm system might be confused. SO....

1 disconnect battery negative (-) cable(make you have radio code if any) to reactivate radio, which works anyway if code was never set.

2 press brake peddle for 5 seconds

3 reconnect negative cable to battery.

use key and twist diver door lock to OPEN (this resets alarm which might have caused ignition lock module to activate.

You should be able to turn on the ignition, start the engine and shift out of park. Hope this helps.

Radio changes stations by itself when memory seat buttons are pushed


It is supposed to change the radio settings to what ever was programmed at the time the program was set. Your van has settings that can be programmed to personalize more than just the seat. It stores the programmed radio station the seat settings and on some vans that have the power tilt steering it changes that too. If you do not want it change the radio settings you will need to store a new setup for the number that you use with the radio station you want.
