You will have no choice but to go to the dealership, bring your serial number with you and there is a fee involved. They can find the code for you.

Unlock radio 2002 sunfire


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 vehicle manufacturer's service centre and get them to enter this code for you.

I need a code number of radio Honda Accord 1998 serial no.M97A189067


Nobody is supposed to have the complete database of codes, only authorised dealers. As a security measure, any time the battery is disconnected, the radio is Locked Out, and will not function until the security code is entered on the radio itself. Furthermore, after 3 tries, it wont even accept the code on the radio display, showing the ERR condition. Check for a sticker with the radio code inside the glove box. Some dealers fixed a second sticker in the owners manual. If not available, get the code from a Honda dealer, and be prepared to show VIN number, and proof of vehicle ownership.When you get hold of the code, disconnect the battery for 15 min. This will erase the ERR condition, and allow you to introduce the reactivation code.

Got a new battery installed at Walmart in my 1998 320 CLK Mercedes Benz. Now radio says "CODE" and I need to know the reset number to enter in also how to do it. Bought the car brand new and...


the dealer should give you a code to punch in. its usually pretty east to do.you may have got the vin wrong which will result in the wrong code. you will probably also require to resync your keys. thats in the manual near the back.
if you are fortunate enough to have your original manuals sometimes the dealer or orignal owners put the code sticker in the radio or mcs manual. take a look if you have.

Dead Battery equals Stereo lock


You must get the 4 digit security code and enter it into the radio by pressing the AM and FM2 buttons at the same time. Then enter code via the preset buttons. Press button #1 until you get the first digit of the code then press button #2 until you get the 2nd digit and so on for the 3rd and 4th digits. when code is on the display press the AM and FM2 buttons again and radio should come back on. if it reads safe you have the wrong code #. You can get the code from a dealer for a small fee. They need to remove the radio to get a serial # on the radio chassis.

1998 AUDI QUATTRO BATTERY DIED. RADIO IS NOW IN SAFE MODE.


Unfortunately, if I am reading this problem properly, you have a Blaupunkt radio in your Audi. Disconnection from power source and reconnection without proper (un)locking code will result in the permanent disabling of said radio.

It's a common problem in factory Blaupunkt radios installed in Volvo's, BMW's Audi's, etc. A very effective anti-theft mechanism indeed!

I bought a 2002 Volkswagon Jetta and the radio is locked out. I do not have an owner's manual so I need the code to reset my radio so it will work.


You need to go to the dealer and have the radio removed and scanned to retrieve the code. Some dealers charge to retrieve this code. If you know where the car was orignally sold from (original selling dealer) you could arrive with you registration (as proof of ownership) and they may have the code on file.
