There are two key slots in the bottom left and right of the factory radio.  You will need two keys to release the radio from the dashboard.  There is no other way to do this.  Once the keys are in, the radio will slide out without you having to remove any other component in the car.  If you go to the dealer, they will charge you plenty.  Go to one of the smaller, technician owned shops and they will take it out for you for $10.

I'm trying to install a new panasonic car stereo into a 2005 dodge dakota and cannot get power to the radio to run. I have the recommended car harness and still can't get the thing to work. can you give...

take digital voltmeter and follow the harness colors to check for powers and grounds

red is ignition switched 12 volts only when car is running
yellow is constant power 12 volts on all the time from battery

black is ground this is the most important wire in the radio circuit if you dont have it grounded good you wont get a complete circuit .

to ground a radio either use the factory ground or find a piece of metal that is connected to the truck frame and scrape the area clean from paint or oils or grease and take a star washer and screw down the wire or bolt down the wire to get a good ground make all ground in one area so you dont get a ground loop .....

How do you install a pioneer deh-2200ub into a 1995 Chevrolet berretta?

You will need these parts from Metra Electronics :
99-3200 Dash kit.
In the instructions that come with this, it tells how to R&R the dash.

Either a 40-GM10 or 40-GM12 Antenna Adapter

and a 70-1858 Wire Harness. This wire harness plugs into your factory harness and then you can use **** connectors to match up the other side to the radio. Red to Red, Yellow to Yellow...etc on down the line. Radio mounts into dash kit and screws into dash.

Car radio Code

You will probably have to contact the manufacturer and speak to a technician to get the factory reset code. Chances are, the code was put in by the previous owner of the car. When this code is entered, it makes it impossible for the unit to operate if stolen. Hope this helps...

Radio code

Hello, The only way to get the code is to call a Mercedes dealer and give them the information so they can get it from MBNA.
Sometimes you will have to take your vehicle registration and ID to the dealership in order for them to process it.

Adding a remote USB port

I solved my own problem.1 I removed radio1.gif face 2 I removed back cover of radio face to expose USB solder joints.3 I drilled a hole in the back cover of radio face over solder joints 4 I drilled a hole in front cover of radio behind face plate and lined it up with hole in back cover of face plate.5 I cut the male plug off of a USB extension cord and ran it through factory notch on the back of radio,through drilled hole on front panel of radio, thruogh drilled hole on back cover of radio face and soldered wires to back side of USB plug in. Wire colors from top to bottom are Red, White, Green, Black. Solder sheild to any of the three larger solder joints next to these connections. Make sure wires are not touching any other connections. Put radio back together and add screw that locks face to radio. Face can no longer be removed with this wire added. Now I can plug in my 8gb memory stick1.gif,hide it under the dash and have a clean looking installation.

If it's any consolation, I don't think the problem is anything that you might have done. Probably the radio just decided that today was a good day to die and you just happen to be there at the time. The only thing I can think of just off the cuff is to remove the radio fuse (both of them) for about 5 minutes to reset the radio back to factory. Might help. The only snag in that is the possiblility that there is a security code that you would have to enter to get the radio to work after removing all power. You might talk to the dealer about the security code before you actually try this. Make sure that he can get you up and running again with a factory code after the fact. Sorry to hear about your problem. Seems cars have a way of knowing when their owners are not driving them and they save all their glitches for just that time. I had borrowed my wife's father's van one time when it decided the time was right for the transmission to go out. (lucky me, huh?) Good luck.

Car radio Code

the code for this radio was not set by the factory, but by the original owner and the code could be anything-unfortunately unless you contact the original owner and they know the code you are out of luck
