SOURCE: finding a code for a theftlock radio?

No, the radio won't tell you. If you are putting in another stock radio from an original vehicle it could be difficult as the VIN# of the vehicle usually lets the car manufacturer find the code. See if you can find a serial number on the unit somewhere and call the maker of the unit, they will have the listed pin code

Following a flat battery, my cd player won't work.

You dont need a code if your radio is working but your cd isnt. You just need to reset the cd player by finding a little small indent on the face and push it in with a sharp pen, pencil or paper clip. Some reset buttons are also found when you remove the face of the radio. You will notice it when you see a little small round hole. Push it in for at least 2 or 3 secs

93 honda accord - The Battery was disconnected

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).

Don'let them charge you for giving you the code.

My car was in the shop, when i got it back and try to play the radio i notice that it is only saying code

The mechanic did some type of work where he had to disconnect your battery either for access or safety. Unfortunately this looks like an attempt to steal the radio to the anti-theft system built into it. Find the packet of info from the dealer when the car was originally purchased and look for a card with a code for the radio printed or embossed on it. If the radio has ever been replaced it will be with the paperwork from the new radio.

The user manual for the radio or vehicle will tell you how to input the code.

If you can't find the code card, try one of the following:

1. For an OEM radio go to the original dealer(if known) and they can give you the code. You may need to prove ownership of the vehicle to them.

2. If you don't know the dealer, try any dealer. They should be able to help but may charge you a bit.

3. If it's an aftermarket radio try the store where it was bought or the manufacturer

Unlocking stereo for 2001 Oldsmobile Alero

Try this.
Here's another variation that worked for me just two days ago... you DO NOT NEED to take it to the dealer and you do NOT need to disconnect the battery, this can all be done with a couple clicks on your radio and call into that phone number.

This was posted previously on another post. ....
01. Turn the ignition ON (The radio displays LOC)

02. Hold down the Radio Presets 2 and 3 buttons for six seconds

03. The radio display changes from LOC to a three-digit number. Write this number down. Don’t take forever, fifteen seconds max before the next step.

04. Press the AM/FM button

05. The radio display changes to another three-digit number. Write this number to the right of the first one.

06. You now have a six-digit number, the first three digits are from STEP 03 and the last three digits are from STEP 05

07. Call 1 800 537 5140

08. Press 1 then #. You’ll hear Invalid Code, try again

09. Press 139010 then #. You will be asked to enter your four or six digit code followed by *

10. Enter the number from STEP 6 then *

11. Listen to the four-digit number and write it down. It will be repeated twice

12. Turn the ignition ON (The radio displays LOC)

13. Use the MN and HR buttons to enter the code from STEP 11

14. Press the AM/FM button. The radio display changes to SEC Hope this works, Good luck. Leadispenser

Your radio is now un-locked and usable

Radio code for 94 del sol

Yes, If it is the stock standard radio, get the VIN# of your vehicle and ring your local Honda dealer. They will have the code on file. Also check the back page of your owners manual, it might be there.

its too bad when they made these radios they didnt include a secret way to reprogram the code. i've had this many times and the only way we can correct this problem is for a servicer to buy a service manual< (unless you take the radio to an authorized dealer)Find out the part #@ for the eeprom Ic and (newer radios I am told the code is stored inside the main microprocessor)order the chip- and install the IC into the radio all for a cost of between 65 to 100 bucks!! Im also told a dealer has a way to retrive the info you need but they cannot do it unless they make sure your the owner of the radio by a bill of sale or check with the local police to see if the serial # is on the hot sheet. They akso wont retrive any info on a radio with a scratched off serial # Go to a local dealer and have them retrive the info for you or sorry to say it may not be worth it. as abd warehouse I seen last weekend had Kenwood radios w cd for 129.00 and Up INSTALLED!! Good Luck
