replacing the battery if not done with a standby battery in the system will activate the anti-theft device in the radio rendering it useless until the code is re-installed in it
the code could be in the owners operator manual. available form the dealer where you bought the vehicle or possibly from on line sites
The radio SERIALNUMBER will be required for calculating a code
On some radios, pressing Buttons 6 and 1 or 6 and 2 (together) maydisplay a Serial Number
If not , then removethe radio from the dashboard.
Then post all the letters+numbers on any labels,barcodes or stamped inthe metal casing.
This information canthen be used to see if a code can be calculated
Use the first four radio station preset buttons to enter the code.
1: Push radio preset#1 until first digit of your code appears. 2: Push radio preset#2 until second digit of your code appears. 3: Push radio preset#3 until third digit of your code appears. 4: Push radio preset#4 until fourth digit of your code appears. 5: Push either tape or cd button.
What to do if your radio says OFF instead of CODE (Courtesy of mittech)
If your radio says OFF it means you entered the wrong radio code three times. To get it to say CODE again do the following.
1:Turn the key to on or accessory. 2:Push the power button so that the radio display says OFF. 3:Let the car sit for 1 hour. 4:The radio display will go blank. 5:Turn the radio on and it will say CODE again.
You can get the code online for a couple of quid just google it ,but you will need to remove the head unit from your car to get model and serial numbers of the unit the keys to remove the radio r quite cheap and r available at most car audio retailers or car spares shops,hope this helps.
