Disconected battery to do welding repair to my car for MOT. Now my citroen car radio requires a code which I have but the radio only comes on for a couple of minutes before it switches off and asks again for the code. Please can you tell me what I'm doing wrong. Thank-you.

Your car radio is fitted with an anti-theft system which prevents it from being useful if stolen. When the car battery was disconnected, all power to the radio stopped and it's reacted as if it has been taken from the car.

You'll need to re-enter the radio security code: it may be somewhere in the the vehicle documentation printed on a card, or someone may have written it down in the service record booklet or the owner's handbook.

If you cannot find it then you'll have to get Citroen to look it up. They'll need details of the exact vehicle you own (the VIN number) and will need proof that you own the vehicle. If you ask nicely or are a regular customer then they may give it to you for free, otherwise expect to pay up to about £25 for them to tap a few computer keys...

Clean the lugs on the battery with a wire brush, sounds like a bad connection, If you used MIG then this should not course a problem, TIG uses a High frequency between 4000-5000 volts this can cause a problem, check the fuses.

Free unlock car radio code for a 99 citroen xsara

If you go on line and search the brand of the radio under "Free unlock codes" you may get lucky, but if not free you might have to pay a couple of quid but someone will have them. You will need the model, serial number etc as the web page requires. Good luck.

Unfortunately this is not the correct number needed to provide a code for this radio.

Your serial number is what is required and should begin with either the letter M or letter V followed by 6 numbers e.g. M123456 or V123456.

When you get the details I recommend you go to this site (click here) which does these Ford codes for only £5.99. Send them the serial details and they will email or text the code back to you.

I use them all the time for radios I repair and can vouch for them as accurate, cheap and they provide good customer service.

Thanks for using FixYa.

My radio will not come on since the battery was disconected. How do I get a code

The radio SERIAL NUMBER will be required

On some radios, pressing Buttons 6 and 1 or 6 and 2 (together) may display a Serial Number.

If not , then remove the radio from the dashboard.

For removal instructions CLICK HERE

Then post the radio make+model plus all the letters+numbers on any labels,barcodes or stamped in the metal casing.

This information can then be used to see if a code can be calculated

Most radios with security codes come up when the battery is disconected or goes flat. In t your sevice book there should be a code that you put in using the numbers on the radio.
