It depends on if you stole the radio. There is probably nothing wrong with it.

To deter thieves, the radio is designed to lock out anytime the battery is disconnected or the radio is removed from the car. Legitimate owners were given the numeric code when they bought the car. If you can prove ownership in person at a Honda dealer, they will get the code for you. Calling over the phone is no proof of ownership.

All you'll have to do is call them. The dealer should be able to tell you over the phone what the code is. I had one like this at my shop and all I did was call the dealer and I was told the code over the phone.

Unhook the negative side of the battery for 15 minutes and it will forget the code and relearn all parameters. It'll run and shift a little funky until it relearns. If your radio has a factory code lock, be sure to write that down before you unhook the battery or the radio won't work.

My radio is locked in my car and don't know the code


If it's a Delco-Loc and you don't have the code that the previous owner programed in you will have to buy it from your local GM dealership.$50 for the last one I had to get.By unhooking your battery or even letting the battery go dead you enable the lock out of the radio.Sorry for the bad news.

The easiest way to reset the computer coding system is to unhook your battery and let it sit for 3-5 minutes. If the code comes back on after starting your car then whatever is causing the code is still happening.

Beware that you will most likely need to know the code to unlock your radio if it has the theft protection built in where if power is unhooked from the radio the radio is locked until you follow the procedure outlined in your owners manual with a code to get it back working. If you don't have the code, your Volkswagen dealer can help you out as well.

Try unhooking the battery, turn key on, leave door open, then connect battery, start engine immediately. The battery saver module thinks it's saving your power!!
