Hi does it just show SAFE or a number then SAFE?


ie: 6 SAFE
?

if it does show a number first this is the attempts that you have left to enter the code.

double check that you are getting the ignition voltage to the radio. other than that, you may have a faulty unit.#

SOURCE: Got new battery for Honda Civic, radio shows "Enter C"? Help Plz!

Options you have:

1 - Check your owners manual. Sometimes the code is written in there. It is a security code that locks the radio and renders it useless unless you enter the code to thwart thieves.

2 - Call Honda at 1-800-999-1009 and go to option #5.
The representative will ask you for your VIN # and some personal info like phone #, address and radio serial # (press 1, 6 and "on" button on your radio at the same time, record 10 digit code). They then proceeded to have you get in your car to try different codes.

3. You can got to this site https://radio-navicode.honda.com/ to enter the vin - but you will have to prove you own the car.

Hope this helps!

SOURCE: Problem with entering anti-theft radio code for

when you use the "preset keys" (the keys on the radio with numbers on them) to enter the code, each time you press a code number, a letter appears [c, o, d, e]. once the word is spelled out, from entering the correct 5 digits, the radio is reset, ready to go.

BUT if you miss a number, enter a wrong number, whatever, each number pressed, still makes a letter appear from the word "code". once the word is spelled out, by entering ANY 5 numbers, if ANY of the 5 is wrong, the radio displays a message "Error" and then a number 1 thru 10.

When you see the word "Error..."

the next preset button you push, starts the whole thing over again. The radio says "Enter code". That is when you enter the 1st of the 5 digits, the letter C appears, enter the next digit, the letter O appears, enter the next digit, the letter D appears, enter the last digit, the letter E apperas, the radio is reset, ready to go, if you got the 5 correct numbers entered.

you have 10 chances to enter the right 5 digit code. Each wrong try of 5 digits yeilds a display of "Error 1", "Error 2", "Error 3", etc 'till you get to 10 incorrect tries of 5 digits each.

If you dont get it right in 10 tries, you have to leave the radio "on" for an hour, then it will let you start the 10 tries over again.

Good luck!

SOURCE: Reset Car Radio for Opel Corsa Njoy

Try this..Turn your radio off, take the fuse out (for the radio) for one minute. Replace it and turn the switch on. Turn the radio on and enter the code. If this dosnt work you may have the wrong code. If you enter the wrong code 3 times it may lock and you will have to wait an hour before entering again.

I have just put a new battery in my 1992 3.1i8 BMW and consequently reset the radio. It has locked in 3 dashes and I can't enter any numbers in. Any help would be greatly appreciated!


If you do not have the book for the radio, I believe there is a trick to entering the code. Its not just using the numbers. I think you have to hold another button down while entering the code or use the station up down button to enter the code. Try hitting all the buttons one at a time and see if that enters anything on the desplay.

How to enter radio code for 1995 bmw525i (after replacing battery)


If you know the 5 digit code you can use the preset buttons for number entry - press the corresponding number on the preset buttons and you should hear a beep if successful.

If you don't know the code, your local BMW dealership can help by giving them the car's VIN number.

My battery was disconnected and now I have to enter the security code for my radio for make it work again! I have the code, but I don't know how to enter it!


You should have the radio pre-set numbers 1,2,3,4,5 & 6 along the lower edge of the unit.

Most stereos are like this:

Example code 4358

Press number 1 button - 4 times
Press number 2 button - 3 times
Press number 3 button - 5 times
Press number 4 button - 8 times

Hope this helps

First check and make sure you have not blown a fuse for the radio. I am assuming the fuses are fine so if the radio is original to car called dealer to confirm code and proceedure to enter it are correct. You usually will need the VIN and or serial number form the radio

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.

Input radio code into BMW 318i E30


Take the radio out. copy down the serial number. Call bmw dealer and they will give you the code.

If you've tried to enter the code once,and put in the wrong code there is a 90 minute to 3 hour wait to try again. the key has to be on Accessory for this amount of time to enter it in again.

It is a 4 digit code. after you see the display of the radio readout "code" enter the 4 numbers in and bingo...........tunes again.

I need to enter a code to reset the radio


Hi!
You don't need to take the vehicle to the dealership, just the vin number registration document/title proof of ownership and identification. They should be only too glad to give you the code for a small fee I guess.
Hope this sorts it? Please press the Blue Button for My FREE! advice. Thank You!

Bmw z3 1999 how to enter my code


Enter the 5-digit Radio Code using the radios station preset buttons. After entering the fifth digit press the > button and the radio will activate. Any presets you had before the power loss will return. Apparently a capacitor in the radio holds that information

I have a hyundai sonata classic 2000 model disconnected the battery lead to clean them, now the radio will not work I have a security code but not sure how I put it in to radio


Once you turn on the unit, "1 CDE" will appear on the LCD. Then using preset button 1~4 enter the 4 digit security number supplied on security card. After confirming the number, press preset button 5. This should unlock the player. If the incorrect code is entered "2 CDE" will appear on LCD and if incorrect code is entered again, "3 CDE" will appear on LCD. If, after the third attempt, the code is incorrect, the set will turn off. Wait 1 hour before re entering a security code.
