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

Hi is there a default radio code for nissan primastar 2007???


No their isnt a default radio code but this is a 2007 and it was about this time that manufacturers started using radios that worked via the ECU so if a battery was changed it didnt lose its code ,but yours could be of the older type and need a code so if you bought it second hand and didnt get the code number then ask at dealers but if it was a rental car in its first owner then its possible its 1111 as i know all our rental cars came like this with code reset so us at the airport couild reset the radio if the customer left the lights on or whatever

Just changed the battery for the first time in 2004 crv LX model. Everything fine, but radio/cd etc just has the word COde across the display and nothing will work...??? what is the code and/or how do I...


Whenever you disconnect a car battery, the radio needs to have the Security code installed. It is for theft protection. It is the code you programed into it when you bought the car. If you bought the car new, the code is usually a series of zero's, usually 3 or 4. If you bought the car used, you may have to contact the previous owner, & ask what they used as a radio code, or if they recoded it. If that is not possible, you'll have to take it to a dealer, to have the radio reprogrammed. If you have an owners manual, it will be described in there also, on how to do it all.

Have just renewed my battery and my radio requires recoding - i do not have the code. My reg is B19 LUM


in this country no dealers keep the codes for any radio as they can be changed by the owner,the handbook says "make a note of the code"so unless you or the previous owner made a note, your stuffed,
you will need to get the radio recoded by a specialist in yellow pages...dont tell me, you havnt heard of people stealing radios......so you didnt ask for a code....

The battery was changed now the radio needs a code


The code is unique to every radio. Sometimes the radio code is written in the owners manual by a previous owner. If you can't find the code for the radio you will have to bring it to a mitsubishi dealer and have them get the code for you. They will probably charge you a small fee.

Radio code ( 98 Volvo S70)


Look in the manual for the code - usually someone has written it in there. If not, call the nearest Volvo dealership and give them the VIN - they can tell you what your code is. Then, with the engine off, turn the key to the "I" position (Roman numeral one) and leave it for at least 4 hours. The radio should then read "Code. and you can enter the 4 digit number! Good Luck!
