The password can only be retrieved from service center or from the dealer of the unit.

Because at the back of the unit there is a serial number mentioned and the password/code only can be retrieved from the serial number. Each and every device/unit has its own serial number so one serial number code/password will not work with other serial number code password.

The service center or the dealer has the list of code for the serial number so as soon as you provide the serial number he will get the password/code retrieved for you through the list.

Thanks. Keep updated for any more query. You can rate this solution and show your appreciation.

    yes.As you enter the radio code the radio will come On.Its a 4 digit code.Its for safety reason actually.Because if in case the radio gets stolen by any one.Then it will not work without 4-digit code.
    so once the 4-digit code is entered it will work.

Please can someone tell me where this memory fuse is for the radio. According to the forums that's what's wrong with my radio. It turns on but there is no sound. I've searched every fuse! Please help!

I never heard of a memory fuse, but you don't say what kind of radio or vehicle it is so maybe on a brand new auto but I never heard of one... Sounds like the radio took a dump, or the whole wire plug harness is unplugged or at least loose..try unplugging and plug it back in..

How can i add my add on amplifiler adapter to my back speakers?

most places that sell car stereos sell a tap adaptor kit costs about 20 bucks or more it hooks right to factory radio plug in dash and lets you hook any aftermarket radio/amp right in as all the wires are marked for there function (just match em up) No cutting and splicing required
proper kit is specific to your make and model car/truck

1995 camaro z28 audio problems

Hi Jamie, Here's an old trick which you may find useful. Take a run down flashlight cell and confirm the wiring to the speakers by holding the earthing line of the speaker cable to the negative and flash the positive side with the feed to the speaker one at a time. With each swipe you will hear a thump from each speaker as you connect and disconnect. In that way you can confirm the cables are the ones you are connecting. Color coding is not always the same. Use a voltage test meter to confirm the constant power and ignition power and don't forget to earth the set once all other connections have been made, Withour an earth it won't work, but you know that anyway. Regards John

Ive hooked up all the wires from the dash to the player, it turns on an everything works except the four stock speakers, everything seems to be hooked up correctly an everyonce in a while ull hear a...

A couple of things to think about. If the radio is new, then the speakers may be bad. If the radio is not new and purchased from someone else, the radio may be bad. You are making sure the volume is turned up right? You did use a harness when hooking the radio up right? That is something I strongly recommend.

My aftermarket radio will not turn on

I assume you didn't install the radio yourself then? Some installers put a inline fuse in. This would be located behind the radio. Some radios even have a fuse built into themselves, also on back side of radio. If those two solutions don't help ya, check the other fuses. Maybe the wiring for the radio was hooked into a different system other then the radio.

I had this problem when I replaced the battery. The code is actually located inside your glove box. You have to look pretty carefully but its a 4 or 5 digit code. You enter it into the radio and wala!:) works again. Some models have to code in different local's you can google your car and find where to code is located. It took a minute to find online but be patient.:) Some one else has had the same problem. thats just for the radio. Ive heard that if turn your ignition to the second slot the one right before the car starts and leave it there until the check engine/oil light goes off. Do it ten times or so and it supposedly resets everything. Good luck!
