You need to call a dealer and verify owner information. They give you a code. Very common problem. This prevents thieves from stealing you stereo and being able to sell it. This can be prevnted by plugging an ac adapter and Jumpbox into you cigarette lighter while changing a battery.

My factory cd player in my 2001 chevy cavalier wont read cd's so i put a factory cd player from another chevy cavalier and now the screen says locked


Most radios and cd players in cars require a code to get them operating again after they have been disconnected from the battery for an extended time. Hopefully a dealer could help you locate the code for that model.

try dis-connecting the battery for 5mins which may allow you to re-install a code but you will need to get correct code as if keep typing anything it will lock again.

CD player quit working after battery installation


Some of these new systems are very finicky, to reset you need to disconnect the negative battery cable wait a few minutes then reconnect, new electronics are sensitive to the difference.
It's possible the low voltage caused by the dying battery actually damaged your CD player, digital electronics are great but they have some serious weaknesses too.
Find out what brand and model your CD player is then go online and do a search for a service manual for your player, you may find an easy fix that way.
Best of luck!

theft lock is for your powertrain.....radio has its own separate code.....can have the code found at dealer or you can pull the radio and call the code in to dealer to turn radio back on

Battery died and i put in the security code but now the cd player wont work


first, you have to obtain the serial number for the CD played. To obtain this, turn the CD player off, hold down the #1 and #6 buttons at the same time. While holding these buttons, turn the power on. The serial number will flash with 2 sequences of 4 numbers each (the serial number is a total of 8 digits). Call a Honda dealership with this serial number and they can provide you with the security code to access the CD player. Hope this helps.

New Battery installed, need a code to use radio


You can pull the radio and get the codes or call the dealer and get them up to you. You will need your vin # in the window and you will have ti have your name on the registration number before they will give it to you.

CD Player Quit Working


the only thing i can sagest is that you leave the battery disconnected over night this may reset the cd player and it may Normal 0 MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0cm 5.4pt 0cm 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0cm; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman";} Recognise that it has cds in it
the only other thing i can think of is that when it says enter single disk only that you do so to a point don't let it go all the way in
this may make the cd player think there is a disk in there
hope this helps
