VT Commodore security coded head units

When i started my car the other day it didn't turn over the first time, when i started it the next time my radio didnt work, I tryed entering a code but i got it wrong three times, A couple days later i was able to try the codes again and i worked out that if i entered "1111" it would work for about 3 min. Is there any thing that i can do to fix the head unit. it is a second hand car so i dont have the correct code.

I have a holden vt commodore, I installed the Alpine CDE-152E Head Unit and now my speakers don't work. Sound was fine before I took the stock stereo out.


Well looks like you have miswired, miscongigured or its a faulty unit. I believe you should check all your wiring, and make sure the install is as per the manual. Disconnect your speakers and check them for continuity with a meter. They will be ok Theres something you haven't done like connecting the pre-amp to the main amp or the plugs are miswired

How to remove a deh 21001b from a vt commodore


He may have to get underneath the dashboard and see if their is a security strap or wire harness holding the radio into the mounting sleeve. It's common for installers to strap down the stereo to prevent thefts and other installer from easily taking the radio out. Have him keep trying.

How can i bypass the security code. bought car used and changed battery now can not unlock receiver


Hi,
If this is not a factory fitted radio, then you need to contact the Radio manufacture of the head-unit and give them the serial number they will give you the code to unlock it.
If it is a factory fitted radio, then you will need the contact the Vehicle manufacture give them the VIN number of the vehicle and then they will give you the code for the radio.
Thanks
Jason

The fault code refers to a CD changer error. More than likely you are looking at buying a new radio. Sorry for the bad news.

In case of a problem or clarification or my solution was insufficient, don't hesitate to post me a reply.

If you are satisfied, rate my solution with the "thumbs" or (even better) add a testimonial.

Hi I'm having a few issues with my deh 2100 head unit in my VY commodore. I installed it myself with the right wiring harness but the head unit doesn't remember settings or band settings. Also when the...


When a head unit doesn't remember settings like yours, then the Yellow constant battery wire isn't hooked up correctly. This wire provides power to your unit constantly from the battery so that it can remember the settings and such. Your aerial not going up is the Blue power antenna wire. This wire will provide power so that when you turn your unit on, it powers the antenna to go up. Hope this helps!

No Sirius or Sat option when pressing Source button


Once everything is connected including antennae, there must be period of time for the head unit to recognize the SAT tuner (SC-C1 in this case). When I started up the car the next day the head unit automatically tuned itself to the Sirius preview channel.

Security code Lockout


I had a similar issue with a head unit in a newer Volkswagen. There was an unlock code burried in the vehicle's owners's manual.

Since your stero is an aftermarket model, I would bet the unlock code is in the manual for the head unit.
