The only way to unlock it is with the CD that you chose as the "key". If that isn't obtainable then you will have to take it to your local Eclipse dealer.
Just make sure it isn't a stolen piece of equipment, the first hint that the local dealer gets that it might be stolen they will send it off to Eclipse...Eclipse will then be able to decide if it was stolen or not. At that point Eclipse will send the unit back to your local dealer, and your dealer will call you up saying it's ready to be picked up, you will then be greeted by the police.

No security code audio system


These units do not have a security code like some radios. Instead, they are coded using a CD. You insert a CD into the radio and it codes to that disc. You need that same CD if you ever want to unlock the player. If you don't have it, you are SOL. Eclipse is no longer in business and they were the only ones that could reset it. The system is known as "ESN Security".

ESN Security: This unit is equipped with the Eclipse Security Network. You can register a particular music CD as a "key" device which unlocks the security. If the registered CD is not detected, the navigation and audio functions will be disabled when the main unit is disconnected from and reconnected to the vehicle's battery.

Eclipse radios are set up so the first cd inserted in the cd is used to unlock the radio if power is ever disconnected or the radio is stolen. You are going to have to call eclipse and see if they will unlock the radio for you. If the radio has been reported stolen, chances are they will not help you. You should be able to contact them at their website. If you can get the radio out of the dash, there is a phone number for eclipse on the chassis also.

Won't power up. Displays SEC / Help Then SEC / 8D201399 Note the serial number is CD201399. Alan


All Eclipse brand radios have a feature called ESN (Eclipse Security Network) installed. This means a Key CD may be inserted into the head unit so that if the unit is stolen or battey is disconnected from the unit you will have to enter the key CD to unlock the unit.


For example, lets say you purchased this unit from bestbuy. You installed it in your car and you wanted to activate the ESN security feature. You need to choose anyone of your cd's from your collection, lets say you chose The Offsping, Conspiracy of One. Input the disc hit the correct buttons ( I'll explain those later) and your Eclipse 54400's ESN is active.


Now, your 54400 is stolen a week later, the thief will plug in the 54400 into his car and it will show SEC [disc], so he/she will insert a cd and it will say [ERR]. If he or she does this 5 times it will show [call 800] which will lead them to Eclipse customer service, but you will have already called eclipse and told them that your unit was stolen. Whether you get your head unit back is highly doubtful but nobody else will be able to use it.


Now for your answer, to activate ESN:
1.Turn the vehicles ignition on and press the power button 2. Press and hold Radio station preset 1 and the FM-AM button for more than one second 3. Insert the CD of your choice. A [SEC] message will now aooear on the screen and ESN is active. Anytime the unit loses power you will have to reinsert the key cd.


To deactivate the ESN feature:
1. Turn the vehicles ignition on and press the power button or the FM-AM button (make sure the tuner is on). 2. Press and hold the radio station preset button 1 and the FM-AM for more than one second. 3.Once the display flashes [disc] insert the key cd you selected to activate the ESN. The display should now read [CnCl]. The ESN is now deactivated.


To resume normal operation after the power has been disconnected to the unit:
1. Wait for the dispaly to read [disc]. 2. Insert you key cd, if the correct CD is inserted your display will read [---] and the cd will begin to play. If the wrong CD is inserted it will display [Err]. If you insert the wrong CD 5 times it will say [call 800] and then you have to send the unit to eclipse to have it rest. Good Luck!


How to read the Electronic Serial Number:
1. Turn the vehicles power on. Prss the FM-AM button. 2. Press radio preset button 4 and the FM-AM button for more than a second and the display should show your 8 digit serial number. This number is to identify your unit if it is recovered after being stolen. Yep, that will happen!

Keep in mind that the "security code" in a radio basically fulfills this function, ensure that in case of theft, the computer does not work in another vehicle;
I didnt know there was a website to get the radio codes. Before you pay anyone to get your radio security code, I recommend you get on the internet, Eclipse dealers, ask for the parts counter, tell them you need your radio code, have your serial number handy as well as all other numbers off the radio housing.

Or, call 1-800-233-2216 (Fujitsu ten) and they will assist you in the removal of the security code for a $25 charge. the number being displayed is probably the serial number of your unit. If you can remove your radio the SN will be on a tag.

Hope this helps.

My car radio was locked after I changed the battery. It's now asking me for a code and I don't have a manual. can anyone please help?


Is this an eclipse radio? If so you set the security with a specific CD you can put that CD back in and it should unlock. The radio is designed to lock if power is lost while in security mode. You may be able to get it unlocked at your local stereo shop but sometimes you need to prove ownership before they will unlock it
