Leave the key in the accessory or on position with the radio display reading"OFF" for about an hour. In 45-75 minutes the radio display will go out. The next time you push the power button CODE will be displayed again and you can input your code. Make sure you have the right code this time :) :)

The normal method to reset a stereo after too many codes is to LEAVE IT SWITCHED ON....UNDISTURBED and it should automatically reset itself.

It may take up to 24 hours as the waiting time doubles after each wrong code.

However normally it is only an hour or two.

Make sure you have the CORRECT code once it has reset itself.

If you do not have the correct code then POST ANOTHER QUESTION

quoting the radio MAKE+MODEL plus ALL the LETTERS+NUMBERS on ANY LABELS ,BARCODES or STAMPED IN THE METAL CASING

note: Unfortunately not all radios can be decoded using the Serial Number 

If not then try your Main Dealer ...........or take it into a Decode Service who will plug in a laptop to read/recode the memory chip (EEPROM). This takes a few minutes and shouldn`t be too expensive

I want to reset my engine light. If I disconnect


most times you will lose them. the main concern is if the radio is of the anti-theft variety. if so make sure you know the code needed to activate the radio and how to enter it.

02 boxater radio won't power on


You may have to re-enter the radio code. Did you have a battery problem or replace the battery. Any time you disconnect the battery, you have to recode the radio.

Peugeot 206 radio Error 2, what does this mean?


i don't know what error 2 is. It might mean that you tried too many attempts to enter the code, causing the radio to 'lock up'. When this happens, some radios 'auto clear' the error code after a fixed period of time (anywhere from 3 hours to a couple of days). Others can't be cleared without sending the radio back to the manufacture (but try simply disconnecting the battery, and reconnecting it, first) 
Assuming that you can get back to the position where you can enter the code, here's how to do it. I'll use the code 4968 for my example: 
Press button 1, 4 times 
Press button 2, 9 times 
Press button 3, 6 times 
Press button 4, 8 times 
Press button 6.

try leaving your ignition on for an hour or so and see if the error 2 message changes to the option where you have to input a code.

check you peugeot manuals to see if the previous owner has noted the code down if not hopefully you should have a stereo manual whihc will have the serial number on it .if not then you will have to remove the stereo and get the serial number off the back.
if you take the serial and logbook to a peugeot dealers they will beable to give you a code usually free.

let us know how you get on and please rate

Acura car stereo lock codes my stereo needs a code is a Acura 3.0CL now it says err-3 can some one help


err-3 means you have entered incorrect anti-theft radio code more that three times.If you do not have radio code you can most of the time find the code card tucked away in the owners manual pouch.(looks like a bussiness card)If you are unable to find card you would have to pull radio from dash and retrive stereo serial number,which is on bottom side of radio.once you have s/n you can take s/n to any acura dealership(has to be a dealer)and they can get radio code for that stereo through Honda Corp.once you have correct radio code you will need to first unplug radio,or disconnect battery to reset radio memory,then type in radio code.again if entered incorrectly 3x ,radio would need to be reset again too clear error codes.good luck!

Volvo V70 and the stereo is locked


What an idiotic answer.  I would never let Technomad work on my Volvo.  Call the dealer and they will provide you with the correct code.  If they tell you to come down in person or try to charge you, then call another dealer.  It takes five minutes to look up the code.

To reset the code after being locked you must turn the key to the on position and leave it that way for about 2 hours (I can't rember the exact time but that's close) and the radio will reset and allow you to enter the code.  No kidding.  So if you can park it in your garage or otherwise keep an eye on it while doing that, then you don't have to worry about leaving the key in the ignition for that long.

Instructions to unlock stereo


If you don't want to spend the 135, find out the name of the dealer who origonally sold the car when new. They should have the code on file form the pre inspection that they did. It is a myth that there is a code inside the trunk or on the radio, so don't waste your time looking.

Nissan stereo sy702 with constant err flashing after flat battery


WRONG! Leave the radio on for 1 hour using the key and accessories to reset then enter the pin. You get the pin from nissan customer service in your area but you need to supply your vin/chassis number.

To enter the pin you press buttons 1-4 corresponding to the number of the pin eg. pin is 1023, press button 1 once, 2 ten times, 3 two times, 4 three times

If you have the Delta stereo (with the power/volume knob in the middle), you need to hold the "DX" and "FM1/2" buttons simultaneously. Hold them down for a few seconds, and SAFE will be replaced with numbers. Use the radio preset keys (1-4 I believe) to enter each number. When the code is successfully input, hold down the DX and FM1/2 buttons again, and the stereo will start to work.

If you mess up entering the code, you can try again. If you mess up a second time, you have to leave the stereo off and the key turned on in the ignition for an hour to allow you two more tries.

Radio reset


If you don't have the code, you probably will have to pay a dealer to get it for you. My dealer said it was on the back of the radio and he had to remove it to find it. I have no idea if this is true.

As to the other problem of entering the code 3 times, and it now showing "off" instead. Simply put your ignition in the accessory position for approximately one hour. "Code" will magically reappear.

This applies to the 2000 Gallant. My code is 7357 if you wish to try it.
