Need code for sony cdx-l480x eq3 stereo

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.

heres what u do.. get u a 12 volt light up tester.. u can usually buy them at autozone for 5-12 dollars u have to get one of the heavier ones. unhook your positive battery terminal hook the tester from the battery terminal on the battery to the cable..(your battery has to be charged for this to work) the tester should light up if u have a short anywhere or the constant on the radio might light it up.. then you pull the fuses one at a time until the light goes out.. u have to pull each fuse because u might have more than one short.. once u have done that u will know if you have any shorts in your wiring thats draining your battery.. hope this helps

Disconnected battery

This task delete temporaly the fault codes stored in the PCM, if the codes return, measn that you have some wrong with some sensor and need scannere the PCM (computer) to know exactly what is this fautl code.

Additinally, if your radio wont work and is asking for one "lock code" need to enter this code; generally this is located in the last pages of the owners manual. If you dont have this code or information, need to visit your dealer with the VIN number and ask for this (sometines need to pay for this service).

Hope this helps.

Now hold on dealer are the crooks okay you can do this youll have 3 tries if your wrong in those attemp the radio will sleep for half an our then you can put the code in. remeber if you disconnet the radio it will still make you wait that half hour okay it has its own clock. Plus its teaching you let it run its cruel timer, when its ready to recieve the code it will wake up. think of it this way its being held for ransom and your going to outsmart the anti theft that evil device and youll master this and everything else.

no chance from the vehicle chassis number i would suggest you go to the dealer and ask their if you do not want to pull the radio out and if your luck they may not even charge you ,i can generate the code for a becker radio but i would need the radio chassis number and you get it for nothing if i do it but without number i cannot do it ,so please ask at dealer and when you get the number write it on the sun visor so you dont lose it again
