The first step is that if you tried to install code more than four times incorrectly it will lock you out, the way you will know if its locked is that it will not say code but rather lock or loc on the display, if this is what you see then you will need to leave the radio on for at least 1 hour without touching it, make sure its on, you may need to hook a battery charger to it or leave engine running to avoid a dead battery, after an hour the display will say code , now its ready for the code, you will use the preset staition buttons to enter the code, starting withthe first digit, for example you will hit the preset number that the code is, for example if the code was 4112 you would push preset 4 the the button 1 then 1 then button 2 and radio will turn on. good day.

05 Jetta factory radio replacement, does the new radio have to be programmed with a code?

Adam, more then likely the dealer will have to program radio with a code, unless you can find code and do it yourself.

Whant to know how to enter code in radio change battery radio lock have code

It should be a numerical code. Just punch it in on the radio using the programmed station buttons. It won't give you any indication that you're entering the code, but when you put it in, the radio will 'unlock'

How to put code into 1997 lasabre radio, i know the code.

If you are refering to the Theft Lock code, you must first push the right sequence of radio buttons to enter the un lock mode in the radio's computer. Once the radio's Theft Lock Identifier code is displayed, you then enter the un lock code into the radio. Ususally, this is a dealer operation as they have the online program to retrieve the unlock code after they submit your Theft Lock ID code. I'm wondering how you were able to get a unlock code without the dealer's assistance.

How to program 1995 900se saab radio

Tune to the first and lowest station on the band that you want and push and hold button number one (in the row of buttons immediately below the station display) until the number shows on the display and flashes. Pre-set one is now that station. Repeat, using button two for the next, and so on, until you have all the stations you want programmed.
