    The radio has become dead, there is only a bussing noise. The numbers I have are 9465. The highest No on the radio is 6 I think, how should I load the higher number. There are no lights, only static. It was working very faintly prior to my efforts to fix it.

Hi pat... bad news I'm afraid. You need to get the code from Eurovox. There is a way to change/defeat the code, but it involves having the thing apart on the bench and actually fitting a new memory chip to the radio that does not have a code. I used to do this if someone left a unit for repair and we were not left the code. I have cut and pasted the FAQ from Eurovox's site for you, Click the link to their code request form. There are also instructions on how to enter the code

And as always, the bastards charge for the info. Sorry I couldnt actually give you a code. I used to have charge $60 to recode a radio back in the day by rechipping it.


Why is my radio not working after the battery was disconnected/replaced?
The radio requires a security code to be entered. (also known as PIN number). A security code is either 4 or 6 numbers long for most of Eurovox Units.

How can I obtain my security code?
Download the Security Code Request form located in the Downloads section. Fill it out and send it in via fax or email with proof and payment. The serial number & model number of the piece of Eurovox equipment is essential. A new security code card will then be mailed to you and your details will be registered in our database.

Why does Eurovox charge for supplying a security code?
Security and administrative reasons. We enter your details in our database so if you lose it again you only have to identify yourself and give the serial number and we will give you the security code again, we also send you a new code card.

How do I enter my security code to my Eurovox radio/cassette/CD Unit?
Refer to the owner's manual of your equipment. Turn ignition key to 'Accessories' & a number '1' or code '1' or similar will appear. Press corresponding preset buttons as you read you security code. If you have a 6 digit security code, the display will count the preset buttons pressed. i.e. display will show '1' the '2' then '3' & so on up to '6' regardless of which number is pressed. If the security code is correct, the radio will turn on. If the security code is incorrect, the display will show '2' or 'code 2' or similar. After 3 incorrect attempts, the radio will go into 'lockout mode'.

Why has my radio got horizontal lines on the display & is not responding to any buttons?
The radio has had 3 incorrect security codes entered & is now in lockout mode. For recent model radio's leave 1 hour (some radio's require ignition key to be on accessories). For older model radio's, remove power to radio by either unplugging radio or disconnecting the negative lead on the battery for 1 hour.

My radio will not accept my security code?
(1) This radio may have been replaced and now requires a different security code
(2)The security code you have been supplied is wrong.
(3)This radio has an internal fault. To check if radio works there is a temporary test code '1111' or '111111' can be used for most of Eurovox Radio. This only lasts for approx 3 minutes.

How do I enter security code to my overhead DVD/Screen combo unit?
Using the <<or>> buttons on the overhead console, scroll up or down to select the first number. Once the correct number is shown, press the ENT button. Repeat this procedure to enter the 4 digit code. As each digit is entered, it will be shown on the display.

Why does "Code Input Error" appears on my overhead DVD/Screen Combo Unit?
If incorrect codes are entered for more than 3 times, your Eurovox overhead DVD/Screen unit will show "Code Input Error" on the display.
Leave car key in the car and turn it to Accessories for approximated 1 hour, the overhead DVD/Screen unit will reset itself and shows"Security Input 1***" on the display.


Good luck... a FixYa rating would be great for my attention to your problem. Cheers mate

regards
Graeme

Thanks so much for your solution of the code input error. I have recently purchased a second hand vehicle with a Eurovox DVD player and locked it up took it in to Toyota who couldn't unlock it and suggested the unit would have to be pulled out and sent to Melbourne (im in Brisbane) I showed the service staff your solution and said I was going home to try it Guess what it worked. I now have to get a new pin as the previous owner can''t find it Thanks for you help. Erica

Why is my eurovox radio flashing then shuts off in 4 minutes


sounds as though the radio requires the radio security code to be entered. This is often supplied with the manual / handbook - have a look for this first and then enter it. The radio code is often required if the car loses power / flat battery, removed battery, fuse etc. If not you may need the serial number of the unit (may have to remove the head unit) and possibly the VIN vehicle identification number of the car and contact Volkswagen. I did find this site but it is in Oz so I doubt it will be applicable but you never know...http://www.go-tech.com.au/faqs.html

How to use eurovox pin in a vx commodore?


Radio P.I.N. (Personal Identification Number)
Your PIN. must be entered if the battery is disconnected. The P.I.N. is shown on the
security card that was originally in the glovebox of the new car. Please keep the card in
a safe but accessible place (not in your car), as this safety feature is provided as a theft
deterrent.
To enter the P.l.N.:
•turn ignition to accessories and turn radio on ("1" or "CdE 1" appears),
•press the radio buttons in your P.I.N. order,
•the radio will shortly begin to play.
If an incorrect P.I.N. is entered the number "2" or "CdE 2" appears on the display.
Following three incorrect P.l.N.s the display shows" - - - ", and the radio must remain
connected to power for approx. one hour before the correct P.I.N. can be entered.
Therefore, if your car repair requires battery disconnection you may wish to provide the
servicing dealer with your PIN.
If the P.I.N. number is XXXX, contact your Holden Dealer. He will require proof of
ownership and the Vehicle Identification Number shown on the inside front cover of this
handbook. There may be a nominal charge for this service.

I replaced the baterry car and now the radio don't start.solution?


It probably needs a four digit pin number. most car radios will require this security code in case the set is stolen. disconnecting the power supply to the set (Either by stealing a radio or by disconecting your battery) will activate the pin code request. If you are lucky then pin number may written down somwhere in the servicebook. if not, then you need to remove the set and note down the seriel number on the sticker on the casing. (Some people have been known to write the pin number here as well!!) . Your local dealership will be able to provide the pin number if you have the seriel number, but they may charge you.

Eurovox radio/cd stacker in 1998 Holden Astra locked


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.

I have a 2003 suburban.my radio didnt work.i bought anither same model radio from ebay. when i put it on it says locked. need help. how to unlock this radio. thanks


If it is a Eurovox brand you need the pin code. If you dont have the pin code you need the serial number of the unit and you can get the code from a company called Go Technologies via the www.eurovox.com.au webisite. This costs a small fee and the application form can be downloaded from the website.
If it is a Eurovox radio you can enter 1111 if the code is a 4 number pin of 111111 if the code is the 6 number pin. This will put the unit into test operation for about 3 minutes to at least see if the unit works. While in this mode the screen will blink continually.
