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 have the radio code 8898 but do not know how to enter it with 1 to 5 buttons. Tried various methods such as pressing Button 1 x8 times etc. Grateful for any help.

what country?, UK jeeps use diffr rad's and diff, methods......
there are more than one radio (orig) sold with car.
we cant guess the model !@
if you look and read the model there and google you WILL find
out how to set it.
FSM for 2000 USA shows no mention of codes.

do you have the wrong radio in the car off a newer Jeep?
the radio sticker on top tells you year, and model and serial.
all key to finding this method.
but just the front dial has the 3 letter model code.... what is yours.

models RBN, RAZ, RAS? on the face plate it is.... look see it?

ask here.?

the operators guide may have this answer. lost yours?
button presses.... are there, if needed..

also never pull. the OID fuse with key on, or the radio scrambles.
to fix that error, key off pull that fuse, count to 50 put back.

if you guess 5 times the radio locks for 2hours
some newer RADS have a rule that if you guess too many times'
it bricks forever. (needs service center fix $$$$)

some codes do not exceed 5. 0 to 5,
in this case 8898 is not a code..... so whats with that number?

and last this great site on head ends

see what radio you have, then ask.

and post the error codes on the display ("wait") or what?

Radio/cd player 2001 honda prelude shows "error."

Look in your owner manuel for a radio code, should be a 5 diget code. If you try to put wrong numbers in the stereo more than three or four times the radio will lock up. If you can't find the code call the dealer with the vin# and they should be able to tell you over thier computer. Another way to find the code is hold number 1 and 6 at the same time for 10 seconds and it will bring up a code that you will have to right down, that code will get your password for your stereo when you call the Honda Dealer. If your stereo does lock up just take your battery cables off and hold the red and black one together for 30 seconds and this will reset your radio.

Lock code for radio cassette

After failing to enter the correct code in 3 successive tries, you must leave the key in the "ignition on" position with the radio on. This will allow you 3 more tries to reset the 5 digit code.
If you enter an erroneous digit, you must complete the 5 digit code, even though it is wrong. You have 2 more attempts to enter the correct code.
