First make sure that the code has not been noted somewhere within the car (underneath the ash tray, glove box , rear of sun visor etc) 

To see if your code is available here for free then the radio will have to be removed from the dashboard (and if you are lucky, someone may have written the code on the casing ) .

If not then POST ANOTHER QUESTION

quoting the radio MAKE+MODEL plus ALL the LETTERS+NUMBERS on ANY LABELS ,BARCODES or STAMPED IN THE METAL CASING

Also quote the MAKE of CAR

note: Unfortunately not all radios can be decoded using the Serial Number 

If not then try your Main Dealer ...........or take it into a Decode Service who will plug in a laptop to read/recode the memory chip (EEPROM). This takes a few minutes and shouldn`t be too expensive

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

How do I program a 1998 Toyota Camry remote?


There are lots of confusing instruction on the net - a dealer is the best bet - ask the price BEFORE you let them do it. Some will do it for free and some dealers want $100 (especially if it is not a Toyota brand remote). Also, most Camry did not have remotes from the factory 1997 - 2001) - only the XLE models. If no factory remote, then no radio for the remote inside the car and it won't help.

I have a 1997 Toyota Camry Intrigue and require the 'code' for the radio which won't work after having a battery replaced, I have tried the last 3 vin numbers but hasn't worked?


Contact the manufacturer of the radio if it is not a Toyota radio. If it is, you will have to visit a deale if the VIN digits don't work.

My Radio say SEC? I cant start radio


The sec displayed is security code in case radio is stolen it cant be used without entering the code. Owner may have disconnected battery and didnt put a memory saver in lighter outlet so it locked. If you go to dealer they can retrive the code for you then you enter code and radio should work.unless they changed the factory code. If not and code from dealer works keep in car or safe place so you have it. Usually no charge to do retrival at dealer takes 2 minutes. Hope this helps

The battery was replaced in a suzuki grand vitara 2002 after which the radio does not work


Most radios have a security code that must be entered into the radio before the battery is disconnected. In the event that the code was not entered or was not available, the security system will lock the radio so it won't work. It is an antitheft feature. If you have the owners manual, it should have a toll free number you can call to get assistance in aquiring a new code to unlock the radio. You can also call a dealership and they can assist you.

Need Toyota radio security code


Oribeeboy is spot on for a 100 series Landcruiser - last 3 VIN numbers.
Let's say the last 3 VIN Nos were 264
Turn the ignition key so that the radio displays "SEC"
then: press "TUNE"and press No1 button on the radio at same time
then: press No1 button 2 times
then: press No2 button 6 times
then press No3 button 4 times
Finally hold the "SCAN" button to confirm the code. The radio will then turn itself off. You can then turn it on in the normal way.
(Hopefully!)

Toyota radio code


Johnny5486:

Emissionwiz is correct, but, his information is for older Model Camrys.

The 2003 "factory-installed" radios in the Camry product line does not have an anti-theft feature, and, because of having no anti-theft feature, there is no reactivation code. If you have a dead battery, the only thing you will lose regarding the radio functions would be the radio stations that you programmed into the memory. The radio will function properly after a dead battery is replaced with no issues.
