Here is the answer to the best of my knowledge. This applies to any body that has the need to get the code from the dealership and requires to pull out the radio and look up the serial number. The process is very simple, just follow these steps and you'll be on your way to listening to your radio again. First of all don't think you need to unscrew anything. The wood panel sorounding your stereo snaps out by pulling on it or using a flat screw driver at the corners. Once you have taken the panel out, you can see that the radio is held in by 2 hooks. Push up and pull forward slightly. You don't have to pull out the entire radio because you can see the serial number on the top surface very easyly. Write down the number next to where it reads s/n. Once you have the serial number, call the local dealership and give them your serial number. They will in turn give you a four digit code number that you will enter on your radio. One thing to note is that if you have entered the wrong code number 3 times, your radio would lock up and it would read "OFF". To unlock it, simply park your veichle in a safe place and leave the radio on for about 1 hour (no engine running just click the ignition switch to operate the radio). After one hour, the radio resetes and will aks you again to enter the code. start entering one number at a time using the first 4 buttons. Example, if your code is 4538, you would push button 1 four times to get to the number 4, you would push button 2 five times to get to the number five and so on.. After you have entered the correct code, push the cd button and there you have it. I hope this helps.

My radio /cd player won't allow me to put the code in


If the wrong code has been entered too many times the radio is likely to be permanently blocked.

Each time a code is entered wrongly or the wrong code is used there will be a waiting time before the code can be tried again and each time that waiting time will be longer; up to several hours.

It is important to enter the code and activate the radio precisely so check the procedure in the manual before starting then if the code won't go in assume you have the wrong code.
The correct code can be purchased from the dealer or various internet sites offer "find your code" services. Alternatively it is possible to have the radio re-coded or decoded. Bear in mind the radio could be permanently blocked and effectively useless..

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.

How do you put codes into the radio cd player for a renalt scenic 2000 modle


hi what you is supply the make of it ie phillips, sony, that sort of thing and the serial number on the head unit then i might be able to help with a code, although, if you have imputed the code incorrectly 3 or more times the radio will become locked out and be unusable as this is an anti theft thing to make it unsaleable to thieves....if you have not put it in 3 or more times then we can see if i can supply a code for you

Where do I input the security code into the cd player for a 2000 mitsubishi eclipse


It uses buttons 1-4 on the player. When you put it in you have to hit the cd button for it to accept it. If you put it in wrong 3 times it will lock up and you'll have to take it to the dealer.
