You will have to go to the dealership with proof of ownership of the vehicle and the vin number. They will be able to get you the security code needed.

I have a Holden Captiva and I need a Radio Code my VIN: KL3CD266JBB047294 Can you help me with gettin this Code as the Car Dealer never had the code when brought they car can you help me please

The reason you need the code is because it has been manufactured with an anti theft system.
No one will be able to give you this code except a dealer and you will need to prove the car / radio is yours.
For anyone reading this FYI.
If the battery is removed from a car that has the anti theft built in for an extended period of time both the radio and the air bags with shut off and will need the code put in to operate again.
It's because those are two expensive items that are often stolen from cars and with that feature the thief's wont be able to use them.
They do sell a device(for under $20 in most stores) that can plug into your power plug/cigarette lighter that will keep power in the system if there is a need to keep the battery our for an extended period of time.
All it needs is a small amount of power so It has a Nine Volt battery in it and it converts it to 12 volts.
I'm sure You can find them up online as well.

Hi I changed to battery on my holden barina 1995 and when i turned it back on the radio said code needed and now i need a code . if you could help me out thanks x mary

there are two ways to get the code for that radio --
1. look in the owners manual and see if it is written down in there -- there should be a card in there that has all that info.
if it is not there --
2. you will need to pull the radio out and on the radio case is the radio ID code and with that and the VIN number you will be able to contact the dealer and they will be able to get you the un-lock code.
these are the only ways to get the code, and as soon as you do get the code - write it down inside the owners manual for future reference.

Changed battery on 1999 daewoo leganza and display said to use reset code, why do I find it? I have no manual.

If the car starts and runs OK, disconnect the negative of ground on the battery for about a minute. If the code is still not gone take it to AutoZone or someone to have them scan the car. You might have something else wrong with the car. Good luck.

Does my 2006 Highlander Hybrid need a radio code if I change the 12 volt battery? If so how do I find it and enter it?  Thanks so much!!!

You are in luck.
There are no security codes in your radio.
Nothing to worry about when you change the 12 v battery.

Thanks for choosing FixYa for assistance!

Radio is locked after the battery went dead

The code should be on a sticker in the outside of the glove box when the glove box is open.
