Your radio will require one of the following procedures.

Type 1
During the code request mode, while holding the DISP key depressed, press and hold the Volume UP or DOWN key for 3 seconds (so that “…” disappears).
Then using your remote enter your code.

Type 2
Press the "Auto" button and "Track up" on face of radio at the same time. The four dash lines ( . . . . ) should "disappear".

Then using your remote enter your code.

Type 3
Model# DPX-4020 and DPX-4030
Press and hold the 1 then the 6 preset key (preset keys are the buttons on face of radio for storing you "favorite" radio stations). "C" should display.
Then using your remote, enter your code.

Enter your number from the remote control unit. Your code number is 5227 (KCAR)

* Press numeric key “5” ( 2 times ) and press the Track UP/Next Track key
* Press numeric key “2” ( 3 times ) and press the Track UP/Next Track key
* Press numeric key “2” ( 1 time ) and press the Track UP/Next Track key
* Press numeric key “7” ( 2 times ) and press the Track UP/Next Track key

The security is canceled and the set enters the TUNER mode!

My radio system was somehow reset. To turn it on requires enter code but I am the second owner and did not set up a code

You need to take your registration papers with your licence (licence is to prove YOU own the car) to a car dealer ie: Holden, Ford, Toyota, Chrysler and ask at the sales office for the SECURITY CODES FOR YOUR CAR, You'll receive your BCM security number, Car key number-Ignition, Radio security pin number and Radio serial number. These numbers belong to YOUR car and once you have them DON'T loose them because in Australia some dealers charge a fee and some don't.... Hope this helped....CHEERS..

I put a new radio in my 1998 Saturn SL2 and now it wont start. The starter clicks repeatedly. What's the problem? Someone said the security system my need to be reset. If so, how do I reset it?

If the starter rapidly clicks when the key is held in the crank position than the battery is low on charge. This may have happened if you had the doors open while installing the radio and the dome light/interior lights where on. Try jumpstarting the vehicle. If it starts drive it for at least 1/2 hour before shutting it off. That should give the alternator enough time to charge the battery for the next time you start it. If you have any questions let me know.

Car sit for two years battery went dead replced that radio has power to it but wont change station or no sound nothing happens

it is most likely that the radio was reset when your car lost all power. it is the radio's theft deterent system. your local dealer can provide you with a security code if you do not have instructions for reset in the owner's manual.

Radio not working after having a flat battery and jumpstarting the car.

Sounds like your radio has an internal security system which means you have to enter a security code to unlock the radio functions. This procedure is explained in the manual for the radio.
You should also have the correct code written on a credit card sized card.
If you do not have any of these items, contact your local dealership.

Radio says Secure on Nissan Almera Tino (04)

Your radio believes that it has been stolen out of the car since battery power was lost to it (as a result of the car battery going dead). There should be instructions in the user manual on how to reset the radio.
