Every stereo has a different code. So there is no way for me to tell you what the code is. If you call the Kia Dealership and talk to them in the service department, they will be able to give you the code from the VIN number.

Anyone could send this SECURITY CODE from internet; this is unique number and you need check the owners manual (last pages).

Other, your best bet would be a Kia dealer as it sounds like its on the way out, just call your local KIA dealer - Give them the VIN# and they can give you the code.

Hope helps.

    If you don't have the original code,
    then there is no other place to get a new one but the dealer, every
    mechanics that run it to it, they call the dealer for code. So what you
    need to do is call the local Kia dealer an d request for a new code, if
    the local dealer don't have the code generator, they will give you the
    main customer support for Kia, and you should be able to get a new code
    and you should not get charge for it, just don't bring the car to the
    dealer otherwise they will charge you if you do.

Can I retrieve the radio code with the Odyssey vin number? The code is not in the glove. I do not have the manual.


No, the stereo unlock code cannot be retrieved with the VIN.

You can get the unlock code for free from any Honda Dealer. You will need to give them the stereo serial number from the back of the stereo or written on a card (or possibly the manual) provided when the vehicle was new. If the dealer removes the stereo to retrieve the serial number they will charge around $100.

DANGER: Do not try to enter the code randomly! The stereo will lock out after 10 incorrect attempts.

How to unlock radio from a2001 chey cavalier


see this technique and fix it. God bless you
Instructions
  1. With the Unlock Code
    • 1 Locate the anti-theft/unlock code. Most cars have a special anti-theft radio card that is included with the owners manual packet containing the unlock code and serial number. Some cars also have the code in the car manual or inside the glove compartment. You will need this code in order to unlock your car radio.
    • 2 Turn the car's ignition switch to the "on" position. This turns on your car's electrical system and powers up the radio. The word "CODE" will display on the screen. Note: depending on the manufacturer some radios will display either "ENTER" or "LOC" on the screen instead.


    • 3 Enter the anti-theft/unlock radio code. Press the "Tune" button on your stereo. It will change the screen from "CODE" to blank. Press the button to scroll through the available numbers. When you reach the correct number press the button once and hold it down for a few seconds. The number will appear on the display and you can now repeat the process to input the second number, third number etc., until all of the numbers are in. If you entered the code correctly the car stereo will unlock and instantly become functional. Depending on your car manufacturer, if you enter the code incorrectly you will not be able to re-enter it again from 1 to 24 hours.
    Without the Unlock Code
    • 4 Call your car manufacturer directly. Your car manufacturer's phone number is in your owner's manual. Ask to be connected to the support department. Tell them you need to reactivate you car stereo and you will be asked for proof of ownership. They will need your car's VIN number, the account number from your bill of sale and a form of personally identifiable information like your driver's license. You may need to fax this information. Once everything checks out the manufacturer will give you the code.
    • 5 Enter the code and unlock your stereo. Use the code you received from the manufacturer to unlock and and activate your car stereo.
    • 6 Go to a car dealership. Take your car to its manufacturer dealership to get the stereo unlocked. For example, if your car is a Honda go to a Honda dealership. Once you have proven that you are the owner of the car, the dealership will be able to retrieve the code from the manufacturer and activate the radio for you.

I cant unlock my car stereo and i forgot my personal code


You need to pull the stereo out to get the stereo serial# and then go to the dealership with your driver license along with your car registration. You need to go to service station and they'll get the stereo code# to you. Some dealership they might keep the stereo code in their data bank, so just show them your car registration where they can get your VIN# and they'll get the code# for you.

2001 Audi A6 2.7t , my audi symphony radio locked out


You will need the code to get it working. You may need Audi for this. Never disconnect the battery, or the alarm with trip on. Since it is frozen, I would try and remove the fuse, and reinstall it to reset the stereo. Then try the code.
I got lucky in my 2001 VW passat, when the stereo code was needed, but then the next day it started working by itself.

Radio will not work


Hi
If the person before it had another stereo in the car or tok off the positive terminal without backup power to the ground and positive, and then they either put back the original radio or forgot about the anti theft system in radios now it can give you error, GM says to enter the unlock code "LOCKED" EVEN IF YOU know the number the radio has to be restored by the dealer, they have the code for your car to unlock the radio, the car dealer would need to take a look at the radio and will not tell you the master key code, as if they do that you can pass on the info and others can use it for illegal purposes.
