    Thank you for the response

    I'm sure it would have worked but seems slight problem with the remote control.

    Guess on a ten year old car only to be expected.

    We have now fitted a different player.

    thank you again for the response

To enter the radio code on most Renaults you do not use the buttons on the radio. Instead use the remote control buttons on the steering column.

The remote control has a rotary control, (either vol +/- or track/station +/-), use this to set each individual digit.

The bottom button on the controller moves to the next digit of the code.

When you have the correct code on the display, press and hold the bottom button to enter the code.

You should hear a beep and the radio should start up.

You have 3 attempts to enter the code. If an incorrect code is entered 3 times, then the radio will lock up for about 30 mins before it will allow you to try again. If this happens 3 times, then the radio will lock up permanently.

If you don't have the correct code, or the radio is locked, then there are companies which can re-code the radio.

Tip

How to Enter a Renault Radio Code


This tip deals with instructions on how to enter the security code in your Renault car radio and assumes that you already have the correct code for your radio. It also describes what to do if your radio will not accept a code after too many incorrect entries and appears to be locked.<br /><br />
If you happen need a code for your Renault Radio I can also recommend this site which is cheap, fast and accurate and will email or text the code directly to you.

1) You must have 0000 showing on the display before the radio will accept the code.<br /> <br />If CODE or ERROR is on the display you must leave the radio switched on with the key turned to the first point in the ignition that activates the radio until the display changes to 0000.<br /> <br />This can take over an hour depending on how many wrong code entries have been made. It is very important to leave the key in the ignition turned to the accessories on position and the power must not be interrupted or the wait period will be reset and start all over again.<br /> <br />2) When you get 0000 on the display, use the steering stalk and <b><u>not</u></b> the radio to enter the code. Turn the thumbwheel on the stalk until the number changes on the display. Accept each number by pressing the satellite button on the bottom of the stalk before moving on to the next one.<br /> <br />3) When all four numbers are entered on the display you must press and hold the button on bottom of the stalk until you hear a confirmation beep. This may take up to 10 seconds.<br /><br />4) Enjoy your sounds!<br /> <br />Hope this tip helps. Please do leave a vote for it and thanks for using FixYa.<br />

Battery went flat so need radio code for renault megane


With the car, comes a plastic "infocard" with the radio and alarm codes. If you lost the card or didn't receive it with the purchase, you can ask for the code to the radio manufacturer, they'll ask you the serial number of the radio and the car and they'll send you the code.

My car radio security code will not unlock radio


Are you sure that you have 

1...The correct code?

2...The correct Code Entry Instructions

If you require a code the radio will have to be removed from the car dashboard .
Then please POST A NEW QUESTION quoting  the MAKE + MODEL of your radio plus ALL the LETTERS and NUMBERS on any LABELS , BARCODES or STAMPED IN THE METAL CASING. 
================================================
If your radio is a RENAULT/PHILIPS then here are the correct Code Entry Instructions

Philips Renault Code Entry 
 
Turn on the radio and the display will show 'CODE'
 
Use the steering controls for code entry.
 
Press the [¬ ] button then rotate the thumb wheel for the correct first digit
Press the [¬ ] button then rotate the thumb wheel for the correct second digit
Press the [ ¬] button then rotate the thumb wheel for the correct third digit
Press the [ ¬] button then rotate the thumb wheel for the correct fourth digit

1998 Mercedes ML320 Radio code instructions


does your radio ask for the code when you turn on the ignition key. If you see _ _ _ _ or **** you should enter the code using the pre set numbers for your radio, ie, first code should be entered using the first pre set key on the radio ( number one ).
Followed by the second code number being entered using the second pre set button and so on until all of the code is entered.
After entering the full code the radio should accept, if not enter code again and press the next pre set key following, ie, if the code is 4 digits, press the fifth.
Hope this works.
If all this fails most garages will set the security code for you for a small charge. Make sure you take proof of car ownership otherwise they will normally refuse to reset the code. This is to foil theft.
