The radio SERIAL NUMBER is required for a code
First remove the radio from the dashboard.
Then post the radio make+model plus all the letters+numbers on any labels,barcodes or stamped in the metal casing.
This information can then be used to see if a code can be calculated
You need to enter the car stereo anti-theft code. The procedure is illustrated in the car or in the stereo user manual (depending if stereo is factory one). The stereo code is also printed in car documentation. Details on how to enter the code depend on car stereo make and model (or on car make and model). The stereo code is unique, if you have lost the code you may need to pay a small fee to recover the code. If you have lost the code, the unlock job can also be done for a small fee at the nearest car dealer.
your stereo is locked. your battery drained and clock memory was lost to radio. a simple fix can be found on this forum but they charge 4.99 or so to help. they dealer will cost 50 + so 5 bucks is worthit.
i am sorry you had to go threw this. positive side you will have the code so it will not be a problem in the future for you.
they radios of modern cars employ so called anti theft mechanisms, but in reality they are designed to cost us money to get things working normal again. this is by the way the only device on your car that is lockable by the power failure
good luck with it. and a little tip: they sell a 9 volt battery maintainer used by professional stereo installers to keep clock memory voltage on the radio so this doesn't happen when you need to disconnect your battery again. i would highly suggest getting one. they are fairly cheap and will prvent you from having any major issues in the future when you need to replace or disconnect your cars battery again.
A lot of time factory stereo require a 4 or 5 security code to activate once you unplug and plug the stereo...in order to get the code just call dealership and ask for the code giving them your VIN or Stereo Serial Number/Model usually they will give it to you for free.
THE FIAT BRAVO HAS A STANDARD ISO CONNECTION WHICH SHOULD PLUG INTO MOST AFTERMARKET STEREOS AND THEREFORE YOU WON'T NEED TO KNOW THE COLOUR CODE, IF THERE ISN'T ANY PLUG ON THE STEREO BUY AN ISO PLUG THEY'RE NOT EXPENSIVE AND CONNECT IT TO THE RADIO AND JUST PLUG IT INTO THE CAR HARNESS, YOU DON'T REALLY WANT TO CUT THE CAR'S WIRING
