Take to a car audio specialist, they can take the radio out and read the code!

Testimonial: "Not correct! The code is NOT there…only the model number! It's not as simple as you try to make it look!"

    Your right! As I said you have to have the code read by removing the radio and plugging the memory chip into a computer and reading the code programmed into the radio from new! If it was easy I would have told you to remove the radio and read the code yourself!

    If the code was on the radio this would not be much of a theft deterrent!

    If your car audio specialist just took your radio out to look on it to find the code I would look elsewhere for a proper car audio specialist!

    By taking your radio to a proper car audio specialist they would know what is involved in reading the radio code and will show you how to input the code once read!

    If you could post the name and address of the car audio specialist you used so that others do not get conned by their bad service!

SOURCE: How to remove Panasonic cq-c1301u unit from car

This is an interesting question. As to the fact that you didn't mention what kind of car you have, I can't give you exact instructions, but I can give you approximate instructions. Read all Instructions b4 you do anything and detach battery b4 working on system!!!!!!
1. Most car's require you to remove a dashboard panel, of not the whole thing. (on a side note, the panel on my jeep that has to be removed just pops out).
2. Next you need to unscrew the adapter kit from the car. A lot of older cars put Double DIN headunits into their cars, These are the larger sized headunits. Most after-market systems require a plastic adapter to allow them to fit into the larger space. As long as your new unit is the same size as the older unit, this piece can be reused.
3. Then you must remove the old headunit from the adapter. Most are either screwed in or have pressure pins that hold it in place. Either unscrew or carefully push down the pressure pins until you can remove the old headunit.
4. If you have already purchased the wiring kit, if necessary, then continue onto next step, otherwise purchase appropriate wiring kit for your headunit and car. Do not open wiring kit until you are ready to hook up your new headunit!!!!
5. Find new wiring kit, detach old wiring kit, and hook up new wiring kit according to included instructions. For best reliability, I recommend using wire nuts as electrical tape isn't as relaible and can come apart after a while. If you need to save space and can't use wire nuts, I recommend liquid electrical tape. Let this dry before you go any further.
6. Attach new headunit to adapter and then attach wiring kit to back of the headunit. Make sure to attach radio cord to back of headunit. Push adapter and headunit back into place, adjusting wires as necessary. Screw adapter back into place.
7. Re-attach dash panel back to car, reattaching screws where and if necessary and reattach battery. Power up car and test system.
8. Listen away.

If you cannot get this to work, most places like Best Buys and Circuit City have professionals that have the necessary parts and expertise to exchange headunits in cars and can do this for a small fee. Just replacing a headunit should be relatively cheep. Adding other components as well would be more expensive.

There are two battery supplies to your radio.

The main one via the Ignition Switch

The permanent one to feed + retain the memory...so this one is missing

Check the wiring, connectors + fuse

note: Unfortunately not all radios can be decoded using the Serial Number
 
Otherwise try your Main Dealer ...........or take it into a Decode Service who will plug in a laptop to read/recode the memory chip (EEPROM). This takes a few minutes and shouldn`t be too expensive
