    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 and what info u need to get your cars unique radio code. The dealer will require the serial number off the radio and proof of ownership of the car it came from.

There is a four digit code for the radio, the previous owner will know it. Press two bottons at the same time and the display reads "0000". use the first four keys on the radio, that is "1", "2", "3","4" for each of the zeros and enter the code by pressing until the right number is displayed. Then press the same two bottons to enter this code and the radio comes out of safe mode..

My car got a buster jump yesterday and now my screen doesnt work


Make sure you have the radio code found inside your model information packet inside your glovebox…it will be on the radio and communications pamphlet. It is in safe-mode right now, so press and hold the FM button and the scan button until 1000, or whatever number is stored in your safe mode, appears. Enter your code by selecting the pre-set radio station buttons until the corresponding number appears; press and hold the FM button and scan button again and your radio should be reset.

Radio reset code


If you made 2 errors, the radio will locks up. You could pull out the radio for several day, or months, but never will reset this hard SAFE.
The solution is easier than you are thinking; "Just turn on the radio, and turn on the switch key, but don't run the car. Leave ON the car switch and ON the radio for one hour".
After it, you will be able to use your unlock code. (Holding Mode+Scan until SAFE change to 1000... )
Remember... you have just 2 oportunities to enter the right code
