Some radios have a wire that power the electric antennea when you switch the radio on. As this is a non-critical feature, usuallu it's left hanging there. As long as everything still works don't worry too much.

Had new power cables fitted,radio not working,need code


The radio SERIAL NUMBER is required for a code
First 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.
This information can then be used to see if a code can be calculated

My Toyotas battery went flat so now the radio is not working, it is displaying "SEC". I need to put in a 3 digit code. I do not know what the previous/old code is, so that I can cancel it and...


This is a security code that is specific to that radio for anti-theft reasons it comes up every time that radio loses power. It should be written in your manual or there should be a radio card that you received with the car that has the code on it. If you can't find this you're going to have to pull out the radio and get the serial number off of it and contact the toyota dealership for the security code.

How do I get the code to my 1998 acura rl radio. I also have my radio serial #.


You need to get the serial number off the sticker attached to the radio. It will require pulling apart your dash. Call an Acura dealership with that serial number and they should be able to provide you the code. Or you can take it directly to the dealer but you will be charged labor.

I need the radio code for 92 bmw 325i


Hello,

Here is a site that will provide the radio code for $28.99.

http://www.radio-code.com/

You will need the serial number of the radio. There are 2 ways to retrieve the serial number. The first way does not require removal of the radio: 1) With the key in the off position - HOLD DOWN THE "M" RADIO BUTTON 2)WHILE HOLDING DOWN THE "M" BUTTON, TURN ON THE KEY AND THE RADIO 3) SERIAL NUMBER WILL BE DISPLAYED 4) WRITE DOWN THE RADIO SERIAL NUMBER. The second method requires removal of the radio. The site above does not support that method of retrieval. In that case, you should probably check with your local BMW dealership.

Hope this helps!

Need 1998 montero sport radio reset code


GETTING THE RADIO SERIAL NUMBER: <BR>
2000 - Carefully take the front panel off that surrounds the radio and temperature buttons, it will snap straight out. Wiggle the radio out about two inches, it is a tight fit. Get the serial number off the radio. It is on a sticker on the top, left side. Call a Mitsubishi dealer with the serial number. They will want proof of ownership, so have the title ready. After putting in the four digit serial number, hit the cd button and that enters it.The code is also written on an antitheft card that comes with the car and may be written in the owners manual in one of the back pages.
<BR> 1999 - Carefully remove the cup holder by pulling it out, then you will see the sticker with the radio serial number.
<BR> Other Years - I don't know an easy way to get the radio serial number, find a radio install savy person and ask them to help you. My dealership said they would do it for me and charge me for 30-60 mins worth of labor.. (At $75/hour) <BR> <BR>
RADIO SAYS "OFF" OR "LOCK": <BR>
Leave the "off" display on for 1 hour uninterupted, then it will automatically reset back to UNLOCK CODE.
<BR> When you turn it back on again after that time has passed it will ask for "code". <BR> <BR>
RADIO SAYS "UNLOCK CODE:" <BR>
Call your local MItsubishi dealership and ask for the service department.
<BR>They have a computer program where they punch in the serial number from your radio (you have to supply the number) and it will tell them the UNLOCK CODE for your radio. My dealership offered to give it to me free over the phone, if I knew my radio serial number. Enter the code using the buttons on your radio. And write the code down, this will show up everytime your radio looses connection to its power source - the car battery.
