Radios are held in place by a number of manufacturers' tricks. Usually, if you can remove the decorative panel around the radio (just gentle pulls), there will be one or two tiny slots on the sides of the radio where a removal tool can be inserted to free the radio. You might be able to insert a thin bladed screw driver or knife far enough to release the radio. Without the tools (generally two) you'll have to do one side at a time. Of course, your dealer or an electronics store will have the tools and can remove the radio for you--for a fee. Or are you planning to steal somebody's radio?

THE GOAL HEAR IS TO DETERMINE IF THE INSTALLATION IS CAUSING YOUR PROTECTION FAULT OR IS IT THE RADIO OR AMPLIFIER ITSELF HAVING INTERNAL DAMAGE. REMOVE THE RCA INPUTS AND DISCONNECT THE SPEAKERS, THEN POWER THE AMPLIFIER UP WITH THIS NO INPUT, NO SPEAKER LOAD CONDITION. IF IT STILL POWERS UP ON ITS OWN, THEN REMOVE THE REMOTE TERMINAL COMING FROM THE RADIO. IF THE AMPLIFIER SHUTS OFF, THEN YOU MAY HAVE A SHORTED TURN-ON TRANSISTOR WITHIN THE RADIO AND IT IS OUTPUTTING THE DC NEEDED TO TURN THE AMPLIFIER ON. IF YOU REMOVE THE REMOTE TURN-ON FROM THE RADIO TO THE AMPLIFIER AND THE AMPLIFIER STAYS ON, THEN THIS POINTS TO A FAULT WITHIN THE AMPLIFIER AND IT WILL NEED TO BE SERVICED. MAKES SURE THAT THE AMPLIFIER AND RADIO GROUNDS ARE 100%. LET ME KNOW IF YOU NEED FURTHER ASSISTANCE.....V
First make sure that the code has not been noted somewhere within the car (underneath the ash tray, glove box , rear of sun visor etc)

You are going to have to remove the center console, remove the screws, this should make the dash screws visible. Remove those. You'll have bolts on the bottom of your dash, below your steering wheel. Remove those. There'll be screws underneath that remove them. You should have clips all the way across your dash. You'll have to probably remove any knobs on your dash. But your whole left side dash will have to be removed. If you are uncomfortable with this; please consult car audio dealer for help. Once you have your dash removed, unclip your wires running to your dash lights. You should be able to pry the center of your dash off now. Find the screws holding your radio in.
