It seems like everyday someone is writing in with the problem of loosing
the radio code or having changed a battery and now their radio comes up
with "safe" or "code".
the registered owner of the vehicle
needs to call the dealer and with the V.I.N. # ready for them (and in some cases,
the radio serial number) to get the serial number of the radio it will have to be removed in some cases and in other it can be brought up on the screen of the radio. the dealer will know this and how to advise you to do so. request the code and procedure. Once you have
this code and procedure, write the code and steps down in the owners
handbook or other item that stays with the vehicle.
no master code that works for all radios. how it works is the dealer has a computer program that will generate the code from the serial # inputed into it. so each radio has it's own unique code.
hope this helps everyone with this issue , for you will have saved the code
and have it handy for that next battery change.
With the "COD" reading, it means you need to enter a security code to unlock the stereo (this is an anti-theft attempt by the manufacturer, and Daewoo set the code at the factory). If it isn't written or printed in your owner's manual
packet, you can get it from the
dealership. You'll need your registration and title, as well as photo
ID. That will prove the car is yours and you are who you say you are.
Your VIN number is on the registration, and the dealer can look up your
radio code based on the VIN of the car. They may charge you something
for doing it (up to an hour's labor).
Hi all! I have solved my radio dilemma. I took the dash apart and found the manufacturer sticker on the bottom of the radio. It has the serial number on the sticker. You need this number when you call the Honda dealer and tell them your problem. I simply called and explained what happened to the service department of my local Honda dealer and gave them the serial number I found on the radio and they gave me the code for no charge. They just put the number in their computer and VOILA! out came the five digit code(which, by the way, is probably the same for all Honda Accord EX and the same Acura cars from 1994 to 1998 that have a casette player/radio. The code is 21543. Try it if you are having this problem and own the cars with said dates above). Hope this helps someone else.
I have a 1987 BMW 325iC. The radio code was in a radio manual. It says right in the manual that if you don't write the code down, the radio is worthless without it. My battery died and I had to put the code into the radio. It started working again. That is why I wrote the code down everywhere I could think. I am going to engrave it into the front of the radio. If you don't have the 5 digit number anywhere around the car, or in it's paperwork, you are SOL!
