Question about Eclipse CD5405
Have eclipse CD5405 disconnected battery and stereo went into lock up. I dont have the code and stereo was installed did not come with car. I remember the person that installed it had said for security I would have to pick a song from the very first CD played in the deck and this song would be the security feature. I dont remeber or even am sure where it is. Have you ever heard of sucha thing? Can u help me out?
Yes, there probably is a hack to unlock your stereo and reset with a new CD you can put in a wrapper and tape to the inside of you vehicle above the stereo should this happen again.
Me I would suggest you discuss this with one of our real audio techs such as Robotek. You can tell him I sent you.

These Eclipse head units have an anti-theft system. The original owner
must select a CD to serve as the "key" for the unit. If anyone else
wants to use it, the key CD must be inserted in order for it to work.
You may want to call Eclipse customer service with the serial number
ready (not a good option)

Tips for a great answer:
The stereo in the Eclipse can be removed with nothing more than a Phillips screwdriver
Disconnect the negative battery cable from your Eclipse's battery. Remove the two Phillips screws along the bottom of the radio/climate control trim panel. Lift up the bottom of the trim panel to unlock the lower retaining clips. Work your fingers around the sides of the panel to loosen the other clips and remove the panel. Remove the four Phillips screws holding the stereo in place. Slide the stereo out of the dashboard and disconnect the wiring harness and antenna cable from the back of the device.
