Question about Audio & Video Receivers
I'm assuming we are talking about a car receiver, and you just had the battery changed in the car. Changing the battery triggers an anti-theft feature in the radio, as if it had been taken out of the car and was trying to be used someplace else.
If it is a factory radio, you will have to go by a dealership to get the code. I drive an older, beat-up BMW, and the one time I needed a radio code for it, I was required to bring the car in physically. One, to make sure a dealership hadn't swapped radios somewhere along the line, and Two, to make sure I wasn't the thief trying to get the radio I had just stolen to work! :)
If this is an after-market car radio, there should be a code in the paperwork that came with it.
