Hi

If this is a stereo that came as standard equipment with the car the radio becomes locked into safe mode as soon as power is disconnected from it. A security code is required to reactivate it.

You may find that this security code is on a card in with the service documentation of the car. Failing this the only way to decode it is to remove the stereo and obtain the serial number which is stamped at the back of the unit.

Because original equipment stereos are locked to the vehicle it came from you will need both the stereo serial number and the VIN (chassis) number of the vehicle it came from.

Once you have this information you must take it to a dealer who will run the numbers and give you the code. Most dealers will not charge to do this if you have already obtained the relevant information yourself.

On OE stereos there is no other way to find the code as the unit is locked both through its serial no. and the VIN no. of the car.

Hope this helps. Thanks for using FixYa.

Check the glove box in your car and look for a card that carry the code. If there's no card, pull the radio out and get the serial number on the side and then contact the manufacturer or the dealer and ask them the unique code for that specific serial number. They are the people that could only provide you the code.

The radio code that you need is also called the "Anti-theft" code. This code is unique with every car radio so that it would become useless once stolen.

Have a great day!

Need radio code for 4000 rds serial m153982 transit


When you disconnect your battery and then reconnect itagain, it disables the radio. This is an anti-theft protection for your carradio.
The enable your radio the activation code is in your vehicle owner's manual. Ifyou do not have this code you need to go to your vehicle manufacturer's service centre andget them to enter this code for you.

My radio is locked i just need the code for a monte carlo 97 GM delco radio


If the code is not at the back of your manual, try 0000 and if the radio locked it self from taking any more codes. Just disconnect the battery and that will reset the radio so you can re-enter the code. If 0000 did not work then log on to Radio-code.com, you can get your cod there for like $12.00 which is cheaper then the dealer and you get to know the codes as most dealer will just unlock the radio. Good luck and hope this helps, keep me posted if you have any more question.

If your lucky the dealer may still have it or the code may be written down at the back pages of your manual. The other place where you can get the code would be www.radio-code.com. before you try any of that, try 0000 to unlock your radio. Good luck and hope this helps.

MY CAR REPAIR TIMINBELT DESCONECT THE BATTERY SO


I'm guessing you are trying to say that you repaired the timing belt, had to disconnect the battery, and now your radio no longer works, either it is off or locked and you need the code? Take the radio out of the car, on the top there is a serial #, call up your local mitsu dealership and ask them for the code, give them the serial # and they should be able to look it up for you. If they try to charge you for it, just call a different dealership, its free as long as they don't have to pull the radio out.
