Your radio code will be printed on a small card that should be with your owner's manual for the vehicle. If you no longer have this, then you will need to visit either a car dealership or a local stereo shop. You will need to first obtain the serial number printed on a sticker on the underside of your car's radio. Take this serial number to the car dealership (they may ask for VIN# too) and they will give you the code.

Radio will not turn on after cleaning battery terminals


First thing, did you push on the volume knob to turn on the radio? Sorry I had to ask but that's the first. Next check your fuse panel and the fuse for the radio. The location of the panel and the fuse will be located in the owners manual.

I am getting an error e code for my stereo after replacing my battery.


There have been too many bad radio code entrys and the radio is now locked out. To clear this you must remove one of the battery cables for about 30 seconds. After reconnecting the battery you enter the code for the radio. If the code is incorrect or entered out of sequence you will get an error message. Too many bad entrys and the radio will lock out. Your local dealer sould be able to help with this for little or no expence. If the code is incorrect they can get it for you easily by accessing the radio serial number through the radio itself, without removing the radio. They can use this information on line with Honda to get you the correct code.

I TOOK OFF A BATTERY CABLE TO TURN OFF ENGINE


Turn the ignition to radio position and wait. This may take anything between 10 minutes and four hours, so be patient. When the radio wakes up and asks the code, punch it in.

Need Radio Code for ML320 Mercedes Benz


The main dealer will supply the code usually for a small charge.
Have a look on line first though because some are offered freely .
You will need the model year and chassis number.

Can't use radio code


If your radio is showing ERR instead of asking for the code you need to take your battery cable off for a few minutes and let the radio reset itself.  After you attach the cables back, the radio will ask for the code and you will just put it back in with the numbers that you use for your preset radio stations.  Thanks for rating my response and for using FixYa!

Radio says code after cleaning battery cable and reattaching the battery cables to battery is there some kinda master code to rest it?


Yes and no. You will have to call the dealer and tell them you vin. If its the OEM radio they will be able to give you the code for it by matching the vin and serial number from the radio. Hope this helps.

Radio code


GETTING THE RADIO SERIAL NUMBER: <BR>
don't know an easy way to get the radio serial number, find a radio install savy person and ask them to help you. My dealership said they would do it for me and charge me for 30-60 mins worth of labor.. (At $75/hour) <BR> <BR>
RADIO SAYS "OFF" OR "LOCK": <BR>
Leave the "off" display on for 1 hour uninterupted, then it will automatically reset back to UNLOCK CODE.
<BR> When you turn it back on again after that time has passed it will ask for "code". <BR> <BR>
RADIO SAYS "UNLOCK CODE:" <BR>
Call your local MItsubishi dealership and ask for the service department.
<BR>They have a computer program where they punch in the serial number from your radio (you have to supply the number) and it will tell them the UNLOCK CODE for your radio. My dealership offered to give it to me free over the phone, if I knew my radio serial number. Enter the code using the buttons on your radio. And write the code down, this will show up everytime your radio looses connection to its power source - the car battery.

Correct radio unlock code not working on 1995 Honda Accord


One of these ways will work. Try this first. Remove the negative battery cable and leave it off for 5 minutes. Hook it back up and then enter the correct code. If that does not work, just turn the radio on, and drive around for one hour. The radio will reset itself and you will then be able to insert the code.

Honda radio code


either the radio code is wrong or you have locked the radio down you only have three attempts to enter the correct code if this is the case disconnect thenegative battery cable for 10 minutes then reconnect and try again. If the code is wrong the audio unit will have to be removed so you can get the serial number to give to the honda dealership so they can get the correct code
