The Battery went dead on my Hyundai hence my car stereo wont work without a security code. the car is second hand and we dont have a code for it. Is there anyway of getting a security code without paying a fortune?

I wasn't blaming you for anything, just pointing out that human presence opens up a zillion failure modes that aren't there when something just up and fails.
The replaced part is also suspect now. You COULD just call it quits on this unit or continue to diagnose the problem. We still don't know if the breakdown is in the preamp side or the amp side and there is not a lot of flexibility in this product to separate the two.
That it is so predictable is actually a big plus. You could try various sources and bypass anything you can to reduce the potential failing circuitry. The cleanest test will always be its own FM.
OTOH, a unit that old has lived a long life. Maybe its time.
It's a racket to make people pay for the code. Contact the dealer for the car and tell him a stereo shop is putting in satellite reception and needs the code. They will need the serial number off the radio, good luck getting at that! Google your car for hints on how to find the serial number of the radio. Also look thru the owners manual just in case the codes are in there.
Your Jeep has a security feature.When you replaced battery it caused the cd player to lock up. You need to contact your local Jeep dealership to obtain the security codes to unlock cd player. They usually have that information available. Good Luck
I read this on ecoustics forum: You could try this:
When you are asked for the code, press and hold the 'AUTO' button and "Next Track" ">>|" for 3 seconds till the (----) disappear.
Now take the remote control and Type "KCAR" with the number pad. PRESS "5", "5", >>| (NEXT TRACK) you should have a "K" PRESS "2", "2","2" >>| (NEXT TRACK) you should have a "C" PRESS "2", >>| (NEXT TRACK) you should have an "A" PRESS "7", "7", you should have a "R" PRESS >>| (NEXT TRACK) and hold for 3 seconds
If successful you will see 'Approved' and the stereo will go to standby screen
Ive got the same unit & they can be a bit unpredictable.Theres a way around it as the unit facilitates a 'NORMSET' feature which allows the user to reset the unit to basic settings as when it was first taken out of the box. Also the sd card you use can only be 1gb or less & has to be formatted in 16kb through windows XP or Vista. If you want to know more get back to me & I will talk you through it,it sounds like the units been corrupted by a sd card that wasn't formatted correctly as this happened to mine but now is sorted. The WOODSTOCK Range aren't made anymore,the latest version is the NASHVILLE,and I was advised that my unit may have had to go back to Germany for reprogramming as no-one really knows about them in the UK. However I sought advice and problem was rectified.
