Hi Gal in PA...

The word CODE is displayed if the radio is removed or if the battery is disconnected. You'll need to do one of the following to get the radio code:
1. Call or go to your local MB dealership. They may or may not provide this to you free of charge.
2. Email MB USA customer assistance. (I found a post online where someone did this and had success)
http://www.mbusa.com/mercedes/#/contactusOverview/

Either way, you'll need your VIN.

I'm surprised your catalytic converter needs to be replaced with so few miles. If your dealer is telling you this, I suggest a second opinion. Or, post a new question in the car section of fixya.com.

Good luck!

My Kenwood car radio needs a code ,model for my car radio is. Dpx7021mpg


A number of Kenwood stereos are sold which use the same security code. Some of the most commonly encountered codes are:
1234 - Not a factory default, but a commonly found security code when attempting to figure out the code for a Kenwood radio purchased second or third-hand.
3051 - Security code included in a number of Kenwood radio manuals.
KCAR - A common Kenwood model security code that has been found to work across a number of models of the stereo

buzzzz no spin again..... LOL
no year car, wow.
but there are 2 codes, one for NAV and one for RADIO
and the answers in your operators guide, , here it is again,
im going for the record here...
short answer, NO YOU cant, you LOST it.
med. answer, have post from guy that guessed 5000 time and won.
long below:


quoted 29 times now:
De'ja' vu , all over again. (LOL) RTM
RTM read the operators manual, its all there, here is a direct quote.

true for all cars, really all modern cars, 2001 to now. about. read your operator guide) (sadly my jeep has no backup method, max paranoia that)


2008 opr.guide.(lost it, huh?) Accord. non satellite Radio. NAV system has own code. , all cars.... 2008 direct quote.

Quotes:
Your vehicle's audio system may disable itself if it is disconnected from electrical power for any reason.
To make it work again, you must enter a specific five-digit code with the preset buttons.
Because there are hundreds of number combinations possible from the five
digits, making the system work without knowing the exact code is nearly impossible.

You should have received a radio code card that lists your audio system's code and serial numbers. {glove box find}
It is best to store this card in a safe place at home. In addition, you should write the audio system's serial number in this owner's manual.

If you lose the card, you must obtain the code number from your dealer.
To do this, you will need the audio system's serial number.

If your vehicle's battery is disconnected or goes dead, or the radio
fuse is removed, the audio system will disable itself. If this happens,
you will see ''ENTER CODE'' in the frequency display (on the screen on models with navigation system) the next time you turn on the system.
Use the preset buttons to enter the five-digit code. The code is on the radio code card included in your owner's manual kit.
When it is entered correctly, the radio will start playing.

If you make a mistake entering the code, do not start over; complete the
five-digit sequence, then enter the correct code. You have 10 tries to enter the correct code.
If you are unsuccessful in 10 attempts, you
must then leave the system on for 1 hour before trying again.

The system will retain your AM and FM presets even if power is disconnected. {only on newer cars'

General information on Honda and DIY:

{the code can be obtained from any Honda dealership (you must give him/her your radio serial number (sticker off radio)"}
or any locksmith with a license from..NASTIF

Hi I purchased a Citroen Berlingo 2005 second hand.Radio needs cod, I don't have. Radio is a eurovox 3385 model no.MOD3385CIT1 serial no. 46000825.4. can anyone help.


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 Citroen service centre and get them to enter this code for you.

Expired otksl ---no SERVICE but I am paying what the heck???? wish aI had not bought this phone


If you purchased the phone together with the service contract, contact your phone service provider's customer support.

If you purchased the phone separately as a new device, contact the seller for a replacement.

If you purchased a second-hand phone, this phone was bound to a service contract and will work with the original SIM card only. The OTSKL acronym stands for "One Time Keypad Subsidy Lock" and as the name says, it can be used one time only to register to a network.

For reference, see US Pat. 6314283:
"A cellular phone subsidy lock which ensures that a cellular phone, sold to an end-user at a price subsidized by a cellular carrier, is activated only on the subsidizing carrier's network, and not on a competitor's network. A secure carrier code, specific to and known by the subsidizing carrier, is programed into the cellular phone by the phone manufacturer. The phone is programmed and shipped by the manufacturer in a locked condition, which prevents programming of the NAM (Number Assignment Module) of the cellular phone without first entering either a valid unlock code or a valid remove lock code. At the time of phone activation and programming of the NAM, the phone's ESN (Electronic Serial Number) is entered into the carrier computer system, which utilizes the ESN and carrier code to execute a subsidy lock algorithm which outputs an unlock code and a remove lock code. At the carrier's choice, either code is given to the end user to be entered into the phone. The phone then executes the same subsidy lock algorithm, using the carrier code programmed at the time of manufacture, and it's own ESN, to calculate the unlock code and the remove lock code. If the code entered by the user matches the unlock code, NAM programming is allowed to proceed only once, and if the entered number matches the remove lock code, the phone removes the subsidy lock completely."

I purchased a 2002 Acura RL second hand and am unable to use the radio because I do not have the security code, nor does the lot I purchased it from. I am trying to discover what the code is without having...


Call the dealership for the number and tell them you are the original car owner and make sure you have the right serial number off the radio itself try this if you don't: If you have jumped or replaced the battery at anytime this will happen. You have to get the serial number off the radio by removing it or partially taking it out to see the numbers on it try not to remove any cords. With the stereo out (to make sure you get the right number off of it) call an Acura dealership with the number and they will give you the another number to enter into the stereo and directions on how to punch the numbers in. Make sure while you have the stereo out you write the serial number down and keep it in a safe place also the number that the Acura dealership gives you because if you sell the car or if it happens again its easily accessible. Good Luck!
