Since i changed the battery the radio says 'safe' but wont work!

usually if a radio says "SAFE" then it is one of two things
1. a factory theft deterrant
2. a power spike tripped the internal surge protector (common if having battery or alternater problems)

here are some possible solutions for the respectively numbered problems
1.) google search (or whatever your favorite search engine is) for a factory reset code for your specific
radio manufacturer this may be model specific if your vehicle has the OEM (stock) radio then you
should be able to find the code by searching for (vehicle make and model) audio reset code or radio
security code

2.) remove the fuse for the radio and any aftermarket audio devices you may have the
power button on the radio (if it has knobs then turn it on for a moment and then back off) replace

How to unlock car radio for volvo v70

In the owners maunel you should have a card with the radio code on it.

The radio will only display EEE or OFF when the wrong code has been entered and the radio is locked depending on model - this is due to the battery being disconnected and the incorrect radio code being entered 3 times. You will neet to reset the radio. To do this the radio has to be on for either 2 or 4 hours - see the manual for your model. If you got the code from a card from Volvo, and it didn't work, then the radio has been changed or it has been reset by the dealer and your current code is invalid. You will have to pull the radio and find the serial & model number, and get Volvo to look up the code for that radio or the dealer may be able to lookup the radio code via vin# from Volvo. The dealer can reset the radio and enter a new code. When the radio is "ready" to accept an unlock code the display will say "codE". You will need this code if your battery is ever disconnected.

I changed my battery in my 2004 Honda Odyssey and now i need the radio code because the radio code card was lost my VIN number is 5FNRL18994B073236


there is no site or organization willing to give you a stereo code for free. Some amount of money will be charged in exchange for the radio code.

Radio unlock code can be gotten from the below link:

Also the process to follow in order to successfully unlock the stereo is stated in the link.

In addition this link claims to generate stereo unlock codes for free, you can give it a trail as it might work for you.

Good luck.

I have a Mercedes ML320 2002, that I need the radio security code. I had to replace the battery and now I am in need of this code. Please help.


Do you have the manual for your Meredes? If you do, browse the manual for the unlock code.

But if you don't have the manual, then it means you will have to purchase the unlock code. There is no site that is ready to give you the unlock code for free and without this unlock code, you cannot access your radio.

To get the unlock code, visits the below link and order for the unlock code.

Or you can visit any Mecerdes Center nearest to you as they might not charge you for the unlock code as long as you can proof that you are the owner.

Good luck.

I disconnected the car battery and now i do not have the code for my stereo the serial number is no.3525599, model no.XR-M510 SONY CASSETTE CAR STEREO.

you need to take it to the dealer to have them reset the codein the radio. Unless you have the code, the dealership can reset the code and you can reset yourself a new code. You can also try any electrical shop that has the proper scanning equipment to unlock the radio codes. Hope this helps.

GM Radio Locked but will not display codes by pressing 1&4 or 2&3

Does your GM car or truck Radio display LOC and does not turn on? Chevrolet, Buick, Pontiac, GMC, Cadillac, Oldsmobile vehicles used a theft system to lock the radio when power is lost. This system was used from the ealy 1990's to the early 2000's.
jQuery('.intro .thumbnail').each(function(i,e){ jQuery(e).find('img').one('error',function(){ jQuery(e).remove(); }); });
  1. If your radio displays the word LOC, you can retrieve a set of factory numbers in the radio that enable you to get a backup unlock code. If the radio says INOP, you will have to leave the key in the "ON" position, or let the car run for at least 1 hour before you attempt any unlock procedure. INOP means a secondary theft lock due to too many false attempts to unlock the radio.
  2. Looking at the face of your GM Delco radio, hold down the preset buttons 1 & 4 OR 2 & 3 (Depending on year and model) for approximately 10 seconds or until a set of 2 or 3 numbers comes up on the display. Write the numbers down.
  3. Next press the AM / FM button. A new set of 3 numbers will now show. Write these numbers down. You will then need to call a 1-800 phone number with these numbers to get the unlock code. There are many sites on the internet that can get it for you- for a small fee. Or, try calling your local GM Dealer and ask for them to do it. Many times they will do it for free. It only takes a minute.
  4. Once you have the unlock code, enter it by pressing the MIN button until the display shows the last 2 digits of the unlock code, then press the HR button until the first 2 numbers or shown. Then press the AM / FM button to enter the code. The radio will now display SEC, and normal function is restored.
Also, its possible that you need RESET your GM Radio; this is the procedure: While performing maintenance on your car, you may disconnect the radio from the battery in your GM vehicle. GM cars contain Delco radios that are protected by Theftlock, which locks the radio after it has been disconnected from a power source. Iit can only be reset and unlocked with a car-specific security code. Identifying the security code for your GM vehicle is the only way to reset the car radio and disable the Theftlock protection device. jQuery('.intro .thumbnail').each(function(i,e){ jQuery(e).find('img').one('error',function(){ jQuery(e).remove(); }); });
  1. Turn on your car. Your Delco radio will show "LOC" in the LED display.
  2. Press and hold down both the second and third preset buttons. Hold these buttons down for at least six seconds.
  3. Write down the two- or three-digit code that appears in the LED display.
  4. Press the AM/FM button on the radio.
  5. Write down the next two- or three-digit code that appears in the LED display. You should be left with either a four- or six-digit number. Turn off your car.
  6. Call the Delco radio automated customer support line at 1-800-537-5140.
  7. Press "1" and then press the pound sign. The automated voice should respond "Invalid code, try again."
  8. Enter the number 139010 into your phone and then press the "*" sign.
  9. Enter the four- or six-digit number you wrote down from Steps 3 and 5, and then press the "*" button.
  10. Write down the four-digit code given by the automated voice.
  11. Turn on your car. Enter the Delco unlock code using the procedure outlined by your GM owner's manual. Normally, the unlock code is entered with the "HR" and "MN" buttons on your radio.
  12. Press the AM/FM button. If you have entered the code correctly, your LED display will read "SEC" and the radio will be unlocked.

Hope this help.
