    Easy fix - firstly, you'll need to remove the stereo to get to the serial number. Have the following tools ready, either: a) 2 metal rulers b) 1 metal ruler and 2 kitchen knives you don't mind bending c) 2 kitchen knives and one fork you don't mind bending d) possibly 2 forks will also work
    Okay, here goes (I used option c):
    1) use a kitchen knife to remove the black plastic border around your stereo. 2) on either side you should see the metal bracket and a smaller metal flap - place your fork between the bracket and the flap on the left hand side. jam it in quite far, so it can release the internal clips. 3) place your knives so that the flat (non-cutting) edges are touching and jam it in on the right side (basically so it works like a metal ruler for the clips, which I didn't have on hand) 4) use leverage to prise the whole unit out slightly. You can then remove it by hand. You don't need to remove it fully, you just need to see the serial number, which is on the top in the upper, right corner. 5) take the last 4 numbers of the serial and do some maths! You need to add 1/2/1/2 to the numbers in sequence. For example, if the last 4 numbers are 9462 then your maths should give you 0674 (9 1, 4 2, 6 1, 2 2). Another example is 1234=2446. Remember the number you end up with!! 6) start the electrics of your car (2 key turns). The radio should say ICDE. 7) For this example, pretend the number you ende dup with is 0674. Press the "1" on your stereo until the first number after ICDE says 0. Press "2" until the second number says 6. "3" until the third says 7 and "4" until the fourth says 4. You should end up with the display saying: "ICDE0674". Press the "5" on your stereo and MAGIC, your radio is working again!! 8) push the stereo back in at re-attach the face plate.
    p.s. I accept no responsibility if you get zapped or break anything while trying this. I may feel a bit guilty (but not responsible, remember) if I hear on the news that you got zapped though. enjoy your tunes!

    Thanks a lot, this works for my 2010 getz. Dealers were giving me the run around to justify charging a fee, Cheers.

How can I eject stuck CDs from CD player 2006 toyota camry grande?

Isn't there a security code needed to reset the stereo after a battery change? The Stereo thinks it has been stolen. See your Manual and see your nearest Toyota dealer. Or use a tweezers to reach in and pull out the stuck CD. And clean the rollers with alcohol.

Factory Radio CD player partial failure. Was driving shake down cruise, stopped for gas, no key response when ready to go. Positive terminal on battery was loose, secured. Then the stereo would not play...

The dealer is trying to rip you off. Your stereo has the Delco Loc II anti-theft system that locks the stereo in the event of a power loss or anytime the battery is disconnected. Here are the instructions on getting the unlock code number. Write these numbers down as they appear on your stereo. 1. Turn on the ignition but leave the radio off. 2. Hold down the preset buttons 1&2 or 3&4 for about 10 seconds. A 3 digit number wilkl appear. Write this down as the first three digits of the code. 3. Now press the am/fm button. The display will change to another 3 digit number. Write this down as the second three digits of the code. You will now have a 6 digit code. Call this toll free number and follow the prerecorded voice intructions and they weill give you a code to enter into your stereo to unlock it and make it work again. If this toll free number is not working, call your dealership and ask them to give you the toll free number to call. If it's a decent dealership, they will call the number for you and get the code you need, but I would'nt count on it. The number is 1-800-537-5140. If this is any help to you,, please vote. Your owners manual will give you instructions on how to enter the unlock code. If you have trouble with that or don't have an owners manual, I can help you with it. Good luck.

Just put new battery in my 2001 Saturn and now I can't get my stereo to play. Please help

If it is a factory stereo,you have to call a Saturn dealer and they will give you a code to unlock.I don't know if the automatically tell you how to do it so you may have to ask.Write it down too because it will happen every time the battery gets disconnected and sometimes it needs to be even though they aren't working on your battery.Good luck!

My battery was changed today and now I do not get anything on my radio/CD player. All that shows in the lcd screen is COD. How to I reset the radio/CD player?

You need the security code to reactivate it. If you havent got that hten try your local dealership. If still no go the stereo is useless....its an ant-theft device. If a garage changed the battery I would put it to them to fix / replace. If you did it then you are basically in for replacement stereo!!!

Hello, I have a recent Ford Focus with 6000CD RDS which frequently reports ''CD ERROR''. I've taken it in to the service center and they reset it and gave me a code as well as a tool to remove the unit to...

The 4 digit code is to unlock the stereo if the stereo is asking for the code.
If your stereo is working fine then just ignore it but keep the code safe, if your battery ever gets disconected or you remove stereo and put it back in then you will need the code to unlock it again.

CD player not working on Acura 2002 3.2TL

there is a security code you have to type in you only get ten tries then it locks up. the security code should be hand written in the manual some where. if you cant get it you will have to pull out the stereo and get the serial number and call the acura people and they will give you a code. but you need the serial number off the back of the stock cd player.

Hi, I Changed car battery on my Toyota Camry '93 and now my CD player/radio doesn't work?

Make sure that you have 12Vdc at the rear of the Radio and at the CD player. If not check the fuses and repalce if necessary. You will also most likely need to enter a 4 to 10 digit code on your radio to get it to work again.

Code for my car stereo

The only way you will get the code is in your user manual. If you don't have your user manual you will have to contact the dealer and follow their instructions.

Reset radio

According to a stereo place here on long island, who checked out our 2004 Durango after we needed to disconnect the battery, the system has to be reset to recognize that the car has a cd player. The technician said something about the DB unit...... we have an appointment to get this fixed, will update after it is done. Supposedly, this shop has this unit that resets the stereo, which is only available to Dodge dealers.....keep your fingers crossed. But the gist of it is, is that the computer is set for a standard AM/FM stereo, and has to be programmed to know that the vehicle is equipt with a cd unit also.
