Re: Entering Code for Car Stereo

Turn on the ignition, turn the radio off fully. (by preeing the volume wheel knob) press AS or the button that turns it to CD mode (should have circle on button)keep it pressed and turn radio on. wait for a beep then it should be somthing like:

10----------- (10 being the number of tries left)
use buttons 1,2,3 & 4 to input your code. press the button more than once for it to rise higher.

Hope this helped.
BTW i got the same problem with my dads astra. but i dont even know the code :(

Stereo stopped working will not turn back on

Many car stereos use an anti-theft pass-code scheme. If the stereo is removed from the vehicle, lock-off is triggered by the loss of battery power to the stereo, and the only way to get it to turn on is to enter the pass-code on the front panel buttons. If you had to disconnect the battery, or it went completely dead on you, that's your problem. Check the manual for your stereo for details.

Note: some stereos requiring entering the pass-code before disconnecting the battery - for those who might have such systems, save yourself some grief and check your user's manual ASAP so you are prepared.

Another possibility is a shorted speaker amplifier has blown the radio fuse. Check the speaker wiring for damaged insulation before you install the repaired or replaced stereo. A competent electronic technician can generally check the amplifier modules or transistors for shorts and replace them as needed. Be sure to ask which speaker output is bad so you know which one needs a wiring check.

How do I get security code for pioneer car stereo/model #deh-4901b

im sorry but the only way is to contact the car dealer. you can pay for codes online but they didnt work for me. after you do get the code. write it down. sometimes the code is behind the glovebox, or inside side of glovebox. as well as under the outside fuse box. depending what make and model of your car. the previous owner may know as well. my acura stereo code was written above my visor. after hell searching. days. days! hope this helps.

Vauxhall astra radio code lost

On radio or car manual; there must be attached label which shows radio serial number. You must contact to opel & provide that radio serial number in order to get acivation code for your car radio. As far as i know; there is no way to work original radio without having activation code.

Lost radio codes

Not familar with your car but I had same problem many years ago with a Vauxhall Astra and did same as you, disconnected battery and re-connected, radio didn't work - but my display kept flashing for security code to be re-input, which I didn't have.
Yours could be the same if radio not worked since disconnection - solution: if you dont have code & not in any documentation you got with car, then the radio will need to be re-coded by a dealer (expensive) or enquire with local car spares shops - they normally know a cheaper source. Mine cost about £18 (5 years ago) to get re-coded & I had to remove & reinstall myself.

1999 Astra blupunkt radio

Get the VIN# from your vehicle, if it is still the original stereo. Contact Holden with the number and they will give you the PIN code. It could also be in the back of your owners manual.
