If you have the details of where the car was serviced or bought they (or a mercedes dealer) can give you the code as long as you can prove you are the owner of the car (sometimes for a fee)
I had this problem before but the dealers gave it to me

Who would be the dealership for a saturn 2000 ls ,i bought it used and radio needs code


Saturn is a GM product, take it to any Chevy dealer and they should be able to help you. Although, if the previous owner left the car manual in the glove box then the factory unlock code should be there, unless they previous owner changed the code then the dealer will have to reset it.

Radio Codes


A dealer will have this code based on the Vin. How ever if you have the original owners manual it should be in it.

Bought a mecedes 2002 clk320 two months ago and wife used car and some how got radio locked up when you now turn radio on it says (code) on radio screen, then if you push buttons for phone it says (wait)...


you will need to enter a code to get the radio to work again. if the code is not in the owners manual, you will probably need to call a dealership to get the code. you will probably need the vin number of the car.

Just changed the battery for the first time in 2004 crv LX model. Everything fine, but radio/cd etc just has the word COde across the display and nothing will work...??? what is the code and/or how do I...


Whenever you disconnect a car battery, the radio needs to have the Security code installed. It is for theft protection. It is the code you programed into it when you bought the car. If you bought the car new, the code is usually a series of zero's, usually 3 or 4. If you bought the car used, you may have to contact the previous owner, & ask what they used as a radio code, or if they recoded it. If that is not possible, you'll have to take it to a dealer, to have the radio reprogrammed. If you have an owners manual, it will be described in there also, on how to do it all.
