1997 Hyundai Excel Radio code

Unfortunately the owner's manual does not have any reference to the radio. All I can find out is that it is a Phillips and has a number DC283 on it. It is a radio/cassette deck.

Thank you

SOURCE: radio code for 1997 Hyundai Excel

if you have the owners log books for the car look to see if the code is in there
if you do not have it then you need to get the model and chassis number from the top of the unit
then you need to go to Hyundai and they will get the code number and they will give it to you
i think you are better off going and getting a new cd player and having that installed
hope that helps

SOURCE: I just changed battery and

look in the handbook for the radio,it should tell you how to put the code in.most radios accept the code via the preset tuning buttons,ie first number is number one and so on then press number five to lock it in ,but some radios you press number one for first nunber then when its entered via tuner up and down press one again and enter second number.then am/fm button to lock but some use the tape player play knob ,really is confusing trust me on this .Change a customers battery and then find they dont have code number,also often happens is that change battery and dammed factory immobiliser cuts in...Who would be a mechanic?? any rich widows out their ??

Hi

The solution here is easy. As you already have the serial no. of the radio/cassette - now all you need is the VIN (chassis) no of the vehicle it came from which you will find on the registration document.

The reason for this is that on original equipment stereos such as this the unit is totally locked into the Nissan network not only by the serial number of the unit but also the vehicle which it came from. This is an anti-theft measure which tightens security on the code.

On OE stereos like this there is no other way to retrieve the code because of the addition of the chassis no. into the equation.

You must go to your nearest Nissan dealer and they will run the numbers for you and give you the code straightaway.

The good news here is that Dealers will do this for free or a very small nominal fee. Once you have this information to hand there is no labour involved for them in retrieving the serial number of the unit itself and they generally do not charge anything for supplying this service.

Hope this helps. Please do rate my answer and thanks for using FixYa.

Hi there, I have a 1999 Hyundai Excel Sprint and I cannot unlock the radio cassette. I've lost the security code card. Can you help?


When you disconnect your battery and then reconnect it again, it disables the radio. This is an anti-theft protection for your car radio.
The enable your radio the activation code is in your vehicle owner's manual. If you do not have this code you need to go to your Hyundai service centre and get them to enter this code for you.

My problem is that i just bought a 328i 1997 and the radio is coded, so what I need is the code but this car doesnt has a owners manual, how can I activate the radio again or how can i get the code number?


Unfortunately, you will have to go to a BMW dealer with the registration papers to prove you own it. Then they can look it up in their database. If the radio was ever replaced, they may not be able to figure it out for you. they will only be able to tell you the code of the original radio that came in the car from the factory.

How don I reset the radio after the battery have been replaced thank you G.T


You have a factory stock code inside your owners manual(if you have the owners guide) that has the code to type into the radio to engage your stations and sound again.If you cannot locate the code card in your manual you will unfortunately have to physically remove the radio from the dash and write down the number off the side of the stock radio and call it in to the dealer and they can access your unlock code for ya..I hope I could help!!! Thanks for choosing us!

You need to re-insert radio code . If your radio is factory provided you may ask code from local hyundai dealer.
Give radio model number to search if can be found also on web.
