SOURCE: My car stereo is locked

There should be a Renault security code somewhere on the radio in the format TOA123 otr TA123 or just A123 at the end of a barcode.


quoting this security number and the other Serial Numbers and you should get a free code fairly quicky

You can not do what your doing on todays
high tech vehicles.
The computer knows what radio was installed at the factory,
so if it stolen ,it can not be used,nor can you
install an aftermarket ,without a lot of system knowledge.
A Car Audio Store may have done a conversion,
but on an LS,I wouldn't bet on it.

Welcome to Fixya

Most common problem for this would be the clock spring. Do a code check. If air bag light on and or the horn dont work for sure clock spring need replacement. Clock spring is located in the steering wheel under driver air bag module (remove air bag, remove steering wheel, remove clock spring ). Air bag codes require a scanner and an OBDII reader will not get you air bag codes
stop by a local repair shop they should have the scanner to communicate with air bag module and pull any codes for you.

Thank you for using Fixya!

I need radio code for my 2002 Holden Astra. Changed battery and can't find the security card

Hi Jenny You need to go to Holden's for this code. They may have to remove the radio for information so there might be a charge, enquire on booking. Search through all your paper work first including purchase invoice and hand book in case someone has made a note of it. There are hundreds if not thousands of numbers used . Good luck

Can someone please help with the code for holden astra 2005 blaupunk 520 5 7004257 ********** cheers

Hi Kevin search through all your paper work, any repair order sheets from dealers hand books etc. If no joy you will have to go to Holden's there are far too many codes used to be able to offer any specific one for your radio. The Dealer may be able to obtain the code on your behalf. There will probably be a charge. Good luck

Security system 2001 holden astra

hi, I have the same problem. The central remote locking is controlled by the soriginal stereo. Thats why it has an extra section of wires than other stereos. I cut this section off and connect it back to the original stereo and the remote lock works again. but as long as you connect the rest of the wires to the new stereo, the lock lost again. Now is like nly music or the lock. I have not find a way to let both of them work. Please let me know if you do.

The battery was disconnected and now that it is connected the stereo won't work unless i put a code in and i don't know the code because i don't have a manual. i think the manual might be in...

you need to contact the manufacturer of the vehicle and tell them the vin number and they can give you the code ( you could pay a fee for this info ) this solution only works if the stereo is an original fitment to this vehicle.

Locked Pontiac Radio

I just bought the haynes book and here is what it says,, when the owner is restored to the stereo the stereo wont turn on and LOC will appear.. here is what it says.. ... turn on ignition switch but leave stereo off
Press MN button.. 000 should display ... it says that in 2002 two an dlater models
that it will learn a portion of the VIN number fo your vehicle.. so you will just have to try those numbers until it works.. syas that you press the HR button until the first one or two Numbers match your code.. Press AM/FM button SEC should appear indicating the stereo is unlocked.d. if LOC appears the numbers arent correct.. try again..
