    Radio lock out codes are security related to discourage theft, so they are not published on the internet, if they were what would be the point?? any thief could get the code after stealing your radio. Contact the dealer for instructions an what info u need to get your cars unique radio code

I had this problem on my old KIA - my code was 2020 - but I think each model year had/has a different code.

    Radio locked no code

    Unlocking the Delco Radio Theft-Deterrent Feature After a Power Loss

    If you know the code that was used to lock the radio then use the following instructions from the owner's manual to unlock the radio.
    Enter your secret code as follows; pause no more than 15 seconds between steps:
    1. Turn the ignition on. LOC will appear on the display.
    2. Press MIN and 000 will appear on the display.
    3. Press MIN again until the last two digits agree with your code.
    4. Press HR until the first one or two digits agree with your code.
    5. Press AM-FM after you have confirmed that the code matches your secret code. The display will show SEC, indicating the radio is now operable and secure.

    If you enter the wrong code eight times, INOP will appear on the display. You will have to wait an hour with the ignition on before you can try again. When you try again, you will only have three more chances (eight tries per chance) to enter the correct code before INOP appears.
    If you don't know the code that was used to lock the radio then you will have to use the dealer's unlock procedure as follows. The dealer code changes over time - the one listed is current as of this posting. If it doesn't work try 08359 or search the forum for messages with a more recent code.
    1. Press and hold presets 2 & 3 for about 10 seconds until the first three digits of the display code are displayed.
    2. Write the numbers down.
    3. Press the AM-FM button, write down the next three numbers.
    4. Call 1-800-537-5140. When asked, enter dealer code 202108, press the * button, and enter the six digit code from the radio. You will get an unlock code, write it down.
    5. Go back to the car, press the HR button and set the first two numbers, press the MIN button and set the next two numbers, then press the AM-FM button. The display will show SEC, indicating the radio is now operable and secure.

    To remove the code, repeat step 5. you should see --- on the radio face indicating the code is now out of the radio."

    AR82.60-P-7502-01A Coding Radio
    (MODEL all with CODE (750) Radio Becker Europa 2000 with CODE (751) Radio Becker Grand Prix 2000 with RDS)

    1. If the radio is disconnected from the power supply, it is not operational when re-connected. After switching on the ignition and the radio, the readout CODE appears in the display.
    2. The code number for the radio is advised to you on the enclosed CODE CARD.
    3. To enter the first digit of the code number, you have to continue pressing station button 1 until the correct digit appears in the display. Adopt the same procedure for the second, third and fourth digits.
    4. Once you have entered the correct code number with the station buttons 1, 2, 3, 4 and confirmed the entry with the SEEK button (press down), the readout CODE disappears. The radio can now be operated.
    5. If you enter a wrong code three times, you must wait 15 minutes before making a new entry. In addition, if 9 incorrect entries are made, the radio will then not operate for 24 hours. During this time the radio and the ignition (terminal 15) must remain switched on.

    (MODEL all with CODE (353) Audio 30 APS with CODE (510a) Radio MB Exquisit with traffic news decoder, with RDS (Becker) with CODE (512a) Radio MB Special with traffic news decoder, with RDS.)

    1. If the radio is disconnected from the power supply, it cannot be operated by simply reconnecting. After switching on the ignition and the radio the word "CODE" appears in the display on the radio.
    2. The code number for the radio is given on the enclosed CODE CARD.
    3. Enter the code number with the station button, e.g. number 1, station button 1. After entering the first number the word "CODE" disappears and the number entered appears followed by 4 dashes. The next character to be entered flashes. After entering all five numbers, the first character starts flashing again. In this state the code number can be written over as frequently as desired. A correction can be made only by entering the complete code number again.
    4. Confirm code number: Press TUNE, AUTO/SEEK or SC button. The radio automatically switches on and indicates the radio station or frequency stored with station button 1.
    5. If an incorrect code number is entered and confirmed, the word "CODE" appears again on the display. If an incorrect code is entered three times the word "WAIT" appears on the display and the radio locks up for approx. 10 min. If the code is entered incorrectly three times again the radio locks up again for 10 min. Three more incorrect entries (a total of 9 incorrect attempts) increase the lock-up time to 60 min. Another three incorrect entries lock up the radio for another 60 min. The waiting time runs only when the radio is switched on.

    I cannot get the CD player to eject the CD. the radio is a standard AM/FM radio with a CD player in a 2005 Ford explorer XLT. after pushing the eject button the radio screen blinks ''EJ err''. The cd...

    Turn the radio off first and then disconnect the battery for 2 min then reconnect the battery. This should reset your radio and then you can eject your CD, and reset your stations and clock. Good luck

    Unlock antitheft code for 2004 chevy impala

    Radios in the 2004 Impalas are tied to the vehicle's VIN through the computer, so it may be somewhat difficult to get the code. However, the following steps should work:

    1. Press and hold the buttons for presets 1 & 4 (may be 2 & 3). The word "SEC" should show.
    2. Press the "MIN" button. "000" should be displayed.
    3. Press the "MIN" button again to have the second two numbers appear. Record these numbers.
    4. Press the "HR" button for the first two numbers to appear. Record these numbers. -- Note: Your number sequence should be the numbers from the "HR" button followed by the numbers from the "MIN" button.
    5. Call 1-800-537-5140. This will get you to the GM unlock code automated line. Ignore the prompt and enter "202108#". Next enter your code (remember, HR then MIN) followed by the * key. For example, 1234*. A 3 or 4 digit code will be given to you. If you get a code such as 0532, drop the zero when entering it into your radio.
    6. Enter the code into the radio IAW the applicable manual.
