Re: Car radio Code
The code for this radio was not set by the factory, but by the original owner and the code could be anything-unfortunately unless you contact the original owner and they know the code you are out of luck

There is no code for resetting a radio. If there is not reset switch, you can reset a radio by disconnecting power to it for a few seconds. This can be done by either disconnecting the wire harness behind the radio, or if you don't know how to get the radio out of the dash, you can disconnect one of the terminals of the battery for a few seconds.
Most car radios need a code when theyve been disconnected , also some car radios are made to turn off after 20 mins use so that it cant be left on accidently , this is a battery saving idea , it can be bypassed though by rewiring a live connection to the radio rather than a connection through the ignition
No their isnt a default radio code but this is a 2007 and it was about this time that manufacturers started using radios that worked via the ECU so if a battery was changed it didnt lose its code ,but yours could be of the older type and need a code so if you bought it second hand and didnt get the code number then ask at dealers but if it was a rental car in its first owner then its possible its 1111 as i know all our rental cars came like this with code reset so us at the airport couild reset the radio if the customer left the lights on or whatever
Hi; I do not believe the need the s/n from the radio. If you can contact the dealer where you baught the car new, they will have the code in their sevice department records. Just tell them the VIN for the car and they should give it to you free. When you get it it is 5 digits in length. Press and hold the code button untill you here a beep. Release the 'code' ( the am/fm ) button and enter the code numbers using the preset buttons as the numbers (1-5or else 6).
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...
ok i dont know if this helps but i looked up some info on getting your radio code back
i dont know the codes off hand but this is what general consences says
"if you look on the right hand side of the radio, you will see a four digit code beginning with a letter. it is usually located near a bar code, and sometimes it says the word 'security' by it."
also Renault dealer can find out the code for that radio.
i copied and pasted this from a friend from the sterio installation bay at best buy
hope this infor helped
