Need to take the title to the dealer for proof of ownership. They will give you the code (for a price around $60). They also offer to do the repair for you for around $120. I see this as a designed rip off disguisied as a theft prevention device.

The code is most likely written under the lid of your fuse box which is located under the hood, most likely near your airbox.

My radio is lock


I'm assuming the battery power was disconnected and the radio security feature is asking for the code now. There are no generic codes. Unless you have this radio code provided with the owners manual that came with the vehicle, you will need to contact GM for this radio code.

2003 Lexus ls radio won't come on after battery


The radio anti-theft has locked itself out. You need to go to your local agent with ID and they will check your radio serial number and be able to give you the correct unlock code. (Make a note of this for future ocassions).

I changed the battery in my 2003 Montana and now my dash guages are dead. There was no short involved--only a simple battery re-placement. The radio also went into "lock".


The radio will go to lock when the battery power is disabled. They have a theftlock system installed where you have set a lock code in the radio, every time the power is removed the lock code has to be reinstalled to work ( this simulates the scenario where someone may steal your radio, therefore it is useless to them without the code). If you forgot your code, you will have to contact the dealer and get the initial radio code to reset it. Procedure is usually hitting 2-3 preset together (displays 3 digit code) then the AM button (another 3 digits) they then call Delcotronics and get factory override code. Quite common problem when code is set but most people forget their code. The dash lights however are not related to the battery replacement, I would recheck that the interior light override switch in the roof console is not set to off.

Code to unlock Radio (2003 Honda Pilot)


Sadly:
There is only 2 options.
1. Your radio code is in your paperwork for your car (Its on a hard plastic card) Find it.
2. Take your registration to Vin and Ser Number for your radio to your local dealer.
These codes are a guarded secret and no one code fits all.
Hope this tip helps guide you in the correct direction to solve this problem.

Radio not accepting manufactur code.


If it is the correct code, you may have entered it a few times & locked the system. Either disconnect the battery & wait a minute & reconnect & retry, or pull the radio fuse & retry after waiting a minute & reinstalling.
