Re: I need a radio unlock code for a Volvo/Alpine Radio
You need to send it back to the manufacturer. Only they can unlock it. Obviously, you are the only one of 25 plus people with the same problem that actually sounds legit!! A lot of thes units are stolen with or without the new owners knowledge.
Seriously, just look up service for the brand and send it to them

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
You car stereo security code is specific to your unit and is normally found in the car owner manual along with the engine number. Providing it is the original car stereo, you can also ask the car manufacturer dealership for the radio security code. Hope it helps!
First of all reset your receiver.... turn it off for more then 5 hours so it will reset to default settings and password. Well you need to provide the model number of your receiver, so i can help you more .....
YOU SHOULD HAVE THE LOCK CODE ON A SMALL CARD THAT CAME WITH THE TRUCK POSSIBLY WITH OWNERS MANUAL OR IN YOUR GLOVEBOX. IF NOT YOU MUST REMOVE THE RADIO AND RETRIEVE THE NUMBERS ON THE BACK OF THE UNIT AND CALL A CHEVY DEALER TO GET THE CORRECT CODE TO UNLOCK THE FUNCTIONS.
With the newer cars most radios have a theft deterrent device built into the radio, and if they steal your system it will not work in another jeep/car the dealer knows the unlock code, some charge to unlock the radio some don't.
That's why when doing electrical work on a car/truck etc. You have to have 12V DC power to the battery terminals all the time or you will loose the code and then only the dealer can help you unlock the radio. HTH.
You will probably have to contact the manufacturer and speak to a technician to get the factory reset code. Chances are, the code was put in by the previous owner of the car. When this code is entered, it makes it impossible for the unit to operate if stolen. Hope this helps...
Hi all! I have solved my radio dilemma. I took the dash apart and found the manufacturer sticker on the bottom of the radio. It has the serial number on the sticker. You need this number when you call the Honda dealer and tell them your problem. I simply called and explained what happened to the service department of my local Honda dealer and gave them the serial number I found on the radio and they gave me the code for no charge. They just put the number in their computer and VOILA! out came the five digit code(which, by the way, is probably the same for all Honda Accord EX and the same Acura cars from 1994 to 1998 that have a casette player/radio. The code is 21543. Try it if you are having this problem and own the cars with said dates above). Hope this helps someone else.
your best bet is to find a VW cd changer as it will just plug into the car. To locate this there is a panel that opens up which covers the first aid kit there will be a spot for a cd changer to fit in.
in the unlikely event that you need to connect the cable on the back of the radio there are slots on each side which you simple press in and the radio can be pulled out to check the connections. Warning if you disconnect the battery or unplug the radio it will require a code to unlock it after it has been plugged back in. A dealer can provide this code if you do not have it already in the radio operation booklet
