You must contact the dealer on this, the code came with the cars owners manual packet, it is unique to the car and the radio serial number.

How do I get my stereo working? My battery died and now I think it needs a code, but it's not the original radio.


wow no symptoms. no sound sure, but in a/m f./m , cassette, or CD and or USB port (MP3) are all dead too>? and is the dial dead TOO>? 100% dead, is that it? ill assume !00%
factory radio have password codes , never aftermarket radios.
so???
ask kenwood, the answer is NO !
your operators guide (jeep) is useless for swapped in radios.

how?, is super easy and 10x on a bench.
no matter.
there is but one 1 wire for power, (on all aftermarket radios) this is a standard, RED wire, must have 12vdc, (ever use a simple voltmeter)?
if radio case and black wire is grounded. are they'
if yes the radio is DOA.

some DOA radios (10000s of models made in 40 years)
have fuses inside or in back of radio, look on back first.
if you seen nothing there, it got none.
open lid, see fuses inside,?

Radio won't work. reset battery and it works until you shut the car off, then won't come back on.


May be it needs complete reprogramming.

To reprogram the radio there is 4 digit code. That code has to be inserted, once these code is inserted, your car radio will get into its actual setting where you can set/select your radio setting.


Many a time's radio asks for the code after car battery is disconnected.

On some cases to retrieve the code its mentioned in manual or else car dealer is other option to get car radio code.

STEREO CODE IS NEEDED TO REBOOT THE STEREO SYSTEM


your best bet is that there maybe a 5 digit number in your glove compartment ..if there isn't there maybe a longer digit number in that case you need to call a dealership and ask them for a radio code and just follow what they tell you to do

The battery died in my Odyssy and now it is asking for a code for the stereo system.


If you purchased your Odyssey when it was new, you should find a card (about the size of a credit card) in with all that paperwork. It gives the code on that card. You could also stop by your dealer, and they can reset it for you.

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!

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.

Not unless it was written down in there by the oridginal purchaser so you will have to write VIN# down and phone the dealer and they will be able to give you the code along with how to do this also it must be a factory sterio hope this helps
