    Radio lock out codes are security related to discourage theft, so they are not published on the internet, if they were what would be the point?? any thief could get the code after stealing your radio. Contact the dealer for instructions and what info u need to get your cars unique radio code. How do I know this isn?t a stolen radio? The dealer will require the serial number off the radio and proof of ownership of the car it came from.

Go to the Vehicle MFG Dealership. They are the only one's that can retrieve your code. Generally they will charge 20-25 to do this. Hope this helps

How do i get my stereo to work again after replacing battery


These devices are designed to stop working when disconnected as a sort of anti theft device. The dealer should have the code to reactivate them. And you should not be paying for it either!

It became only while the car was idling, now it's anytime, anywhere, and never on a consistent basis. The engine simply dies, turns itself off. When it happens, the check gauges light comes on. Nothing...


is your stereo the OEM (factory original) model? Does the car have a factory-installed anti-theft system? If the answer to both is Yes, you may have a logic conflict since many anti-theft systems go to and through the car's stereo. If you still have the original owner's manual, check the section on anti-theft or security systems. It may list a reset procedure that returns the system to factory defaults. If you have an aftermarket anti-theft system, you may have to disable it until troubleshooting and repair processes have been accomplished. Incidentally, by the car sitting without a battery for five years, all E-prom programming may have been degraded or lost. As for the volume increasing, some GM/Delco radios have a volume compensation feature that increases volume levels as speed increases.

RADIO ERROR CODE


In my 03 Civic I have a credit card sized plastic card that came with the car. It has a password for the stock stereo (the original one that came with the car from the manufacturer.) It's for anti theft purpose. You will need this code if you lose power to the car such as a disconected battery or if you leave the lights on so long that it drains the battery. I would suggest contacting Honda if you don't have your radio code. You can also get an aftermarket stereo ant it'll work no problem. I hope I'm answering the question in the way intended.

Thanks,
Sam

Stereo code


Your stereo is on most likely on anti-theft, if its the stock stereo check the owners manual booklet, otherwise you'll have to ask the dealership

Replaced stock stereo and now jeep wont start, it turns over but just wont start. The security system did honk a couple times during the installation of the new stereo


these vehicles have an anti-theft designed into them. When you remove the stereo, you probably shorted out the anti-theft and it won't let you start the car as if you were trying to steal it......

Car stereo locked after batterie change


Contact a subaru dealer for assistance and if they need s/n off the stereo, then remove it yourself and save the diagnostics fee. If they want to charge for the code, search the web for free anti-theft code information or use radio-code.com
