There wer 3 diffrent radio options for that particular vehicle. All three have diffrent ways to unlock the radio. If you can tell me what type (Bose, Gamma, or Delta) I can give you the unlock procedure.

    Turn on the radio - the word "SAFE" appears in the display...

    Press the FM 1 and AM buttons simultaneously and hold them down until "1000" lights up in the display. Release the buttons! Do not, under any circumstances, continue holding them down or press them once again. This would cause the radio to consider the number "1000" to be the input code number.

  • Use station buttons 1 to4 to input the code number on your Radio Card. Use button 1 to input the first digit of the code number, button 2 to input the second digit, and so on.

  • Once the code is shown on the display, press the FM 1 and AM buttons again simultaneously and hold them down until the word "SAFE" appears in the frequency display. Release buttons! Soon afterward, a frequency will be displayed.

2004 mazda rx8 immobilizer system

Only after market systems have valet over ride switches.
From what you said, the RX8 is shut down from
the factory immobilizer,
The IM05 bypass module is designed to circumvent this
but it's dependent on you having the original
programmed ignition key to do it.

Also, the system must not be damaged, or the code
lost from the keys or it won't do that.

Mazda may also need to reprogram the immobilizer code
for you to procede. Have that bit of info looked at

Well there is a fuse panel above the battery compartment (left rear of trunk) that removes with a finger twistable lever. In that compartment are some spade fuses and one maxi fuse. I DONT know if they are for the stereo speakers or not.

The easiest way to wire it is to get a pre-fit harness that fits the vehicle and stereo. Search the stereo's web site to find one.

Intermintent stereo in 97 caravan

sound like the tuner it's self is going bad.  Have you checked the antenna connections?  Try holding on to the antenna when the radio is fading out.  Sadly the radio is part of the stereo and not a separate module.  You need a new stereo, get one with HD'll love it.
