For our Toyota Prado 2001 01, after the battery had been removed SEC was showing on the cd / tape / radio display. To remove the security SEC warning, find the last 3 digits of your VIN number (under the hood) hold down the "TUNE" button and then press "1"

Then use the numbers 1 2 and 3 to type in the last 3 digits of your VIN number.

Quickly hold down "SCAN" button, the radio will power off, then press the volume button to turn it back on.

-I accidentally held down "auto" before holding down scan, I don't think auto has any part of fixing this (just an error on my part) but if the above doesn't work, you could try hold AUTO down after entering the digits then hold scan - just as I did.

SEC has now been removed, enjoy your radio!

one guy did, but you dont know how to hack
EPROMS do you. I do, but I'm not doing that here.

also you can call key shop
and some do house calls.
and they reprogram the key for you on the spot.
Call them and ask,
my local shop here in town does.

all this is just boring OLD HAT to all mechanics.

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

Visited local Toyota dealer and got copy of radio operation book relevent to my vehicle which contained info on how to fix. If I hadn't had security code Toyota dealer could have attached system to diagnostic computer and resolved the issue - not sure at what cost.
