Try using key in drivers door first, as well as passenger door if that doesn't do it, and lock and unlock it manually and see if that stops it.

    Also try turn drivers side 45 degrees to left, then back straight up, and remove key if other method doesn't do it.

    Let me know how you make out.

2016 Honda Accord radio won't make a single sound and anti theft activation pops up when first cranking car


Has the battery died or been changed or unhooked. I know some car radio if they loose battery power, they quit working till you put a radio code in them.

CAR RADIO NOT WORKING


Most stock radio's have a anti-theft built in, so when you change the battery you need to unlock it. You can contact either the manufacture (preferred) and they will guide you through the steps to unlock it, or take it in to the dealership. I would avoid the dealer because they will overcharge you.

Anti theft wont let me start car


The problem may not be with anti-theft but with a bad fuel pump,cam/crank sensor etc. Also, you may try unlocking the drivers door with the key. On most cars that is the standard method for disabling the security system.

How to reset anti theft


Remove the black battery cable. Put key in ignition (with battery unhooked) and turn to the on position. Replace the black battery cable with the key on and that should do it. If not, try locking and unlocking the driver's door with the key (with power on).

Changed engine wont start anti theft light on all the time should it be flashing with key on paul


well you have to unlock your car Radio, the anti-theft will trigger if your battery is disconnected or your radio will lock if its been removed. In your car manual there should be a slip of paper or a label with the code to unlock your radio, if not you have to go to the dealer to have them unlock it

Anti theft activated-now car won't start and radio won't work. Radio won't take radio code and car cranks but doesn't start, horn blares, and headlights flash. I don't have the other code for the anti...


to turn off the theft system, all you have to do is put the key in the door lock and lock and unlock the door, this shuts down the anti theft system,now this has nothing to do with the radio, the only way the radio would ask for the code is if it was removed or the battery unhooked,anyway try the unlocking of the door even try the passenger door, hope this helps.

The battery died on my 2001 eclipse, now the radio only says ''off''?


This is the anti-theft device on your factory radio. When the battery died, the radio thought it had been removed from your car and went into anti-theft mode. When you turned the car back on, the radio should have read "CODE" on the display, at which point you need to enter the factory anti-theft code. After 3 failed attempts at entering the code, it will simply read "OFF" and the radio is locked.

At this point:
- find your factory anti-theft code - it should be in your owner's manual, or you can contact a dealer to retrieve it
- turn the key to the ACC position (radio and accessories on, but engine is off)
- turn on the radio so the display reads "OFF"
- let the car sit for 1 hour
- radio will turn off automatically and reset
- turn the radio on again, and it should read "CODE"
- enter the factory anti-theft code

Make sure you have the code before starting the procedure. To enter the code, use the radio preset buttons. For example, if your code is "4321", hit Preset #1 button four times, Preset #2 three times, Preset #3 two times, and Preset #4 one time. Then hit the "Tape" or "CD" button. Radio should now be unlocked.
