I had to purchase a new battery for the car. After installation, the COdE message for the radio would not allow me to play the radio. I attempted to put in the 5 digit code but was unsuccessful. What do i have to do to get the radio to play and get rid of the COdE message?

After two tries, the radio assumes tampering, and stops receiving the unlocking code. Disconnect the battery for 10 minutes or so, and attempt again to introduce the code.

How to insert the code for the radio of my golf3 /1996



ENTERING SECURITY CODE

Most vehicles are equipped with Heidelberg V or VI radios that are equipped with a theft protection program. When the battery has been is disconnected or if the radio has been removed, the radio will lock-up electronically and cannot be operated until the security code is entered. On the Heidelberg V, if the proper code is not entered in six attempts, the radio will lock-up permanently and cannot be repaired. On the Heidelberg VI, two incorrect attempts will lock the radio for about 1 hour.
The Heidelberg V may have a code assigned at the factory or a personal code created by the owner. The Hiedelberg VI has a code assigned at the factory and entered by the dealer during pre-delivery inspection. New radios come with the code printed on a sticker but not entered into memory. All codes are 4 digits. To code the radio:
Heidelberg V

  1. Turn the radio ON . The radio should display the word SAF. DO NOT attempt to eject a cassette with the radio in this mode.
  2. Push the AM/FM and SCAN buttons at the same time and hold them until the display changes, then release them immediately. The number 1000 will appear for about 3 seconds, then the display will go blank. Release the buttons then.


NOTE If the buttons are held too long, the radio will interpret this as an attempt to enter an incorrect code.
  1. Use the first four station selector buttons to enter the code. The first digit of the code is always 1. Each time the other buttons are pushed, the number in that position will change.
  2. When the code appears correctly in the display, push the AM/FM and SCAN buttons at the same time. When the radio plays and displays a frequency, release the buttons.
  3. If the code was entered incorrectly three times, momentarily disconnect the battery and try again. If the code is entered incorrectly three more times, the radio cannot be coded and cannot be repaired.

  3. If the code was entered incorrectly two times, leave the radio ON for one hour and try again. This can be repeated as often as required.

I need the radio code for a recently purchased XJS Jaguar


As an anti-theft deterrent, Jaguar began installing radios at the end of the Series III era which required the input of a security code to enable the radio to function. While coded radios are a pain, our experience is that they have drastically reduced the radio theft rates in major cities like Atlanta.
When cars with coded radios were first sold, the owner received a pair of plastic cards, about the size of regular credit cards, listing the radio code. When used Jags trade hands, these cards are forgotten and usually are not passed on with the car. And then when the battery dies and is replaced, the radio insists upon being recoded before it will work again.
One tip is that the dealer technicians frequently would write the radio code under the hood of the car in marker. There are also reports that the radio code was on a paper label which was stuck to the underside of the hood when the radio was installed. So if you do not have your code, it is a good idea to look under the hood for the paper label or for a hand-written four or five digit number. You may get lucky; we have known owners who found their radio code in this manner.
To recode the radio once you have the code, turn the car’s ignition on and then turn the radio on until the word "code" is displayed on the radio faceplate. Enter the radio code slowly and deliberately, firmly pushing on each button. If you have entered the correct code, after the last numeral is entered the radio will beep and then begin to play on the last station selected. If the radio has been uncoded for a long time, or if power has been removed from the radio for a long time, sometimes you will be unable to enter what you know is the correct radio code. In these cases, leave the radio powered, with "code" displaying, for an hour or so and then try to reenter the code. The code will usually take after doing this.
It is not possible to guess at the radio code and to just keep trying combinations of numbers until stumbling on the correct code. The radio will accept only three coding attempts before it locks up for an hour. Then you have three more attempts before it locks up for eight hours, then three more tries before it locks up for 24 hours, and so on. The times indicated may not be accurate, but the process is correct as described.
If you cannot locate your radio code, either from the previous owner or from the car itself, the only way to get the security code is to pull the radio to retrieve the radio’s serial number and to request the code from your friendly Jaguar dealer. All dealers have the ability to retrieve these codes, although they will vary in their willingness to do so for individual owners.

My dash lights and my radio stop workin when i was installing a new radio, how can i fix this?


sounds like you have a problem with the power supply. Check the fuse. if ok, remove the new radio and check the power connection to the radio. if you cut into a wire harnis to find a hot 12v connection, you may have severed the dash 12v supply or knocked it loose . Take it slow and retrace your steps, but first check the fuse panel. You may have shorted out a wire without knowing it when attempting the install. lift the pos. lead on you battery the next time you play with 12v.

My battery died in my 735i, 1988 bmw. my radio stopped working. it shows 'code' on the radio. my code is 1545. i input it but nothing happens. what is the correct sequence to get it working?


If the wrong code was entered too many times the system locks itself out and you must wait approximately 30 minutes before you attempt to input the code. It is important that in this time that the radio is on, and that you don't attempt to enter the code. If this doesn't work I would verify that you actually have the correct code. The code is not written anywhere on the radio as it comes from the factory, however there is a serial number on the back of the radio that allows the dealership to retrieve it easily.

Changed battery raido in safe mode have code no instrucktions


Check the owner's manual. Most people write the code down if the radio was installed when the car was new. If not, then you have to take it to the place that sold the radio. The could be the VW dealer, or whomever sold the radio. Only they are allowed to reset the code to something new, that they can tell you. It requires equipment no one else has.

My battery died on me the other day and now the radio won't work.


The Accord radio does indeed require a code. Have you tried just putting the code in. If you do not know the code do not attempt to guess, as after a few attempts you will lock the radio for good. I need to know the error message exactly as you see it if inserting the code does not work.
