Disconnect the battery for 5 minutes and then try again, the program may be locked, make sure you follow the code entry instructions exactly, or it will also lock you out every time.

My RDS 5000 it keeps saying try again after 30 minutes my M code is 217005 please help with the code. James


You need the Ford radio security code, do not keep entering the wrong code as you will block the radio and it will need to be taken to a specialist to unlock.....if you do not have the security code you can get it from this link: Car radio codes in Uxbridge London Gumtree

I need the radio unlock code for a 98 grand prix


The following instructions will allow you to reset any GM (General Motors), Cadillac, Oldsmobile, Buick, Pontiac theft lock radio.

Requirements: the theft lock radio must be in "LOC" mode.

Procedure:
1. Turn the ignition ON (The radio should display "LOC")
2. Hold down the Radio Presets 2 and 3 buttons for six seconds
3. The radio display changes from LOC to a three-digit number. Write this number down. You now have fifteen seconds to complete the next step.
4. Press the AM/FM button
5. The radio display changes to another three-digit number. Write this number to the right of the first one.
6. You now have a six-digit number, the first three digits are from STEP 03 and the last three digits are form STEP 05
7. Call 1-800-537-5140
8. Press 1 then # (pound). You'll hear "Invalid Code, try again"
9. Press 139010 or 106010 or 206010 or 202107 then # (pound). You will be asked to enter your four or six digit code followed by *
10. Enter the number from STEP 6 then *
11. Listen to the four-digit number and write it down. It will be repeated twice
12. Turn the ignition ON (The radio displays LOC)
13. Use the MN and HR buttons to enter the code from STEP 11
14. Press the AM/FM button. The radio display changes to "SEC". Your radio is now "un-locked" and usable.

If you fail to enter the correct code eight times, the radio goes into INOP mode. You have to wait an hour with the ignition on before the radio returns to LOC mode.

Hope this helps; keep in touch.

AR82.60-P-7502-01A Coding Radio
(MODEL all with CODE (750) Radio Becker Europa 2000 with CODE (751) Radio Becker Grand Prix 2000 with RDS)

  1. If the radio is disconnected from the power supply, it is not operational when re-connected. After switching on the ignition and the radio, the readout CODE appears in the display.
  2. The code number for the radio is advised to you on the enclosed CODE CARD.
  3. To enter the first digit of the code number, you have to continue pressing station button 1 until the correct digit appears in the display. Adopt the same procedure for the second, third and fourth digits.
  4. Once you have entered the correct code number with the station buttons 1, 2, 3, 4 and confirmed the entry with the SEEK button (press down), the readout CODE disappears. The radio can now be operated.
  5. If you enter a wrong code three times, you must wait 15 minutes before making a new entry. In addition, if 9 incorrect entries are made, the radio will then not operate for 24 hours. During this time the radio and the ignition (terminal 15) must remain switched on.
AR82.60-P-7502-01B Coding Radio
(MODEL all with CODE (353) Audio 30 APS with CODE (510a) Radio MB Exquisit with traffic news decoder, with RDS (Becker) with CODE (512a) Radio MB Special with traffic news decoder, with RDS.)

  1. If the radio is disconnected from the power supply, it cannot be operated by simply reconnecting. After switching on the ignition and the radio the word "CODE" appears in the display on the radio.
  2. The code number for the radio is given on the enclosed CODE CARD.
  3. Enter the code number with the station button, e.g. number 1, station button 1. After entering the first number the word "CODE" disappears and the number entered appears followed by 4 dashes. The next character to be entered flashes. After entering all five numbers, the first character starts flashing again. In this state the code number can be written over as frequently as desired. A correction can be made only by entering the complete code number again.
  4. Confirm code number: Press TUNE, AUTO/SEEK or SC button. The radio automatically switches on and indicates the radio station or frequency stored with station button 1.
  5. If an incorrect code number is entered and confirmed, the word "CODE" appears again on the display. If an incorrect code is entered three times the word "WAIT" appears on the display and the radio locks up for approx. 10 min. If the code is entered incorrectly three times again the radio locks up again for 10 min. Three more incorrect entries (a total of 9 incorrect attempts) increase the lock-up time to 60 min. Another three incorrect entries lock up the radio for another 60 min. The waiting time runs only when the radio is switched on.

I pressed the wrong code for my radio (business cd radio)


1. You have to have the code for the radio which varies by serial # of BMW. I got this code by calling my BMW dealer here in town. They were very nice and gave it to me for free.

2. When you enter the code wrong 3 times (I think) the radio goes into "sleep mode" for 2 or 3 hours of operation. In this sleep mode the radio will not let you enter the code from 1 above.

3. After waiting just enter the code and all will be well.

Stupid radio!!


press rds and fm1/2 together and hold it til your radio indicates the numbers 0000 then enter your code using the buttons 1234 keep presssing the number one til u get the first digit of your code then go on to the next number and so forth. once you get the code in press rds and fm1/2 again til lthe radio automatically turns on.


This solution is close, but not accurate for my 1998 A4 2.8. You press and hold FM2 and RDS until the display indicates 1000. Immediately release. Then enter code with radio numbers 1 through 4, pressing each one till you get the first no. of the code, then for 2, press till you get second no. of code, etc. The press and hold FM2 and RDS until radio comes on.


Press & Hold RDS & TP at the same time , display will flash enter your correct code then press and hold RDS & TP together to save the code. Radio will be unlocked after that if the correct code is entered

Radio doesn't work


If you do not have a code, you need to take your car into a saab dealer who will quickly take the radio out to get it's radio code. They will then phone saab and get the four digit code for you. This is always the same so you need to keep the code safe for the future. They only charge about £15.
When you have the code enter the number in when your radio screen says code in with four dashes. If the screen only has four dashes and not the words code in then you need to leave the radio on for an hour until the screen comes up with the words code in. If you enter the code in incorrectly three times you will have to leave the radio on for an hour again. You cannot hear the radio while you wait the hour. Hope this helps.
