Who would be the dealership for a saturn 2000 ls ,i bought it used and radio needs code

Saturn is a GM product, take it to any Chevy dealer and they should be able to help you. Although, if the previous owner left the car manual in the glove box then the factory unlock code should be there, unless they previous owner changed the code then the dealer will have to reset it.

I had someone change the radio in my 1998 camry and it did work. My battery went dead, dead and once I replaced battery the radio now doesn't work. Why>

Car radios have security codes to prevent them from being stolen. If they lose power, such as when replacing the battery, they lock out. This makes them worthless to anyone trying to steal them. You need to have the unlock code to reactivate the radio. It is provided with the vehicle at purchase, or by the retailer when selling replacements

I have a 2000 Malibu. It has a cassette and CD player and an auto tune button. My battery went dead, so I had it changed. Now my radio shows, what looks like, the digital code LOC. I don't know how...

the radio most likely has a security code activated & until you reactivate the code the radio will not work, you may have to take it to a place where they install radios to get the problem sorted out.........hope this helps........cheers,

I just bought my 3rd Acura Legend...but never encountered this problem. They removed my battery to place in another vehicle on the lot...and when they replaced my battery, the radio locked up and would not do anything. I called the Acura dealership in my area....have an appt for Monday, she said $51.00 to get code. I was reading on all the websites i could find about Acura radio codes...then i come accross one posting about an Acura Integra. It said her code was under her ashtray. I went out to my car...pulled my ashtray out. There was a white sticker with a 5 digit number first, and then an E number. I turned my radio on, entered 5 digit BEEPED. I turned it off, and turned it back the most WONDERFUL BOSE stereo system!! It worked ya'll!! I was so shocked!! It may not help everybody....but my Acura Legend 4Dr Sedan has MUSIC now!! So i thought i would pass it along...saved me FIFTY dollars!!

Check your paper work for an Area Frequency Code and 4 digit security code.

If your radio says "COdE" use the "preset buttons" as "numbers" and put the security code in, one number at a time. If it is the right number it will flash 3 times. If not try again.

Battery dead on 2004 Honda had to be jumped now radio crashed

Any time battery is disconnected the radio has to have a code reentered. This is a theft prevention issue. You should have gotten the code if you bought the car new, if not call the dealer and he can provide it.

Re key less entry have no idea but could be same issue.

Battery went dead in 2000 honda civic EX, radio now dead after battery replaced

you will probably need a activation code to get it to work again.

If you bought the car new then you should have a "credit card" size paper with the code on it, they don't put them in owners manuals so, don't look there, if you can't find it or you purchased this car second hand, the you will have to go to the local dealership and show proof that you own the car and they will get the code for you from their head quarters.
