Question about Car Audio & Video Accessories
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.
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 ??

SOURCE: Nissan Micra radio code
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.

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

Normally a dealer provides them for free.Are you outside of the USA?Perhaps try another dealer first in another city.If they do not help,here is a link to a site that is much cheaper than $115.If you want to find other ones to compare pricing just google 'factory radio unlock codes'.Many sites will appear.Also,be sure to write it down and the procedure.When you disconnect the battery it will happen and your battery could be disconnected for many other problems than just battery/alternator work.Good luck!

Having the VIN was definitely a good choice too.
