    try the four figure number on the pink sticker first ,the number i wanted to generate the code starts with a M ,but i have tried with another later ford program but it would appear my antivirus has stopped it from working.Also my ford cd technical information has now changed its codes so it will not let me into the system so iam very sorry but you will have to go cap in hand to teh dealer,but look on the sun visor ,in the boot and cars papaers as it may be written or scratched down somewhere

Why doesn't clock and radio work after installation of new battery?


Enter security code, it is in your owners manual within first few pages. It is written in by tech who checked vehicle out before delivery of vehicle. If no manual you will need to bring it in to dealer so they can look up code.

I need a code number of radio Honda Accord 1998 serial no.M97A189067


Nobody is supposed to have the complete database of codes, only authorised dealers. As a security measure, any time the battery is disconnected, the radio is Locked Out, and will not function until the security code is entered on the radio itself. Furthermore, after 3 tries, it wont even accept the code on the radio display, showing the ERR condition. Check for a sticker with the radio code inside the glove box. Some dealers fixed a second sticker in the owners manual. If not available, get the code from a Honda dealer, and be prepared to show VIN number, and proof of vehicle ownership.When you get hold of the code, disconnect the battery for 15 min. This will erase the ERR condition, and allow you to introduce the reactivation code.

Stero wont work .asking for code (y reg ford focus)


We are assuming that recently disconnected the battery and the radio lost power support, then the device is asking about the lock code to sure that this isn't a theft condition. This code is in the last pages of the owners manual; if you dont have this document, need to visit your delaer with the VIN number and showed that you are the owner. This lock code is unique e\for each vehicle and just the Ford dealer could give you.

Hope helps.

I installed a new battery in my 2004 Pasatt. Now


Your radio is probably showing up SAFE in the display because you disconnected the power supply. On this particular vehicle you have to re enter a security code to get the radio to work again.

You may find you have this security code somewhere in your service documentation or owners manuals if you have them. From the factory it is printed on a small card which often gets lost as the vehicle changes hands.

If you have lost thos code you can only obtain the code from a dealer by

1) Removing the stereo and getting the serial no that is stamped or printed on the back of it

2) Bringing this serial along with your cars VIN identifier (Chassis no) to a VW dealer who will run the numbers and give you the code you need to unlock the stereo.

Hope this helps.

Lost ML320 Audio System Security Code


Locate the manuals you received when you purchased the car. On the inside cover (front or back) of one of them, the dealer should have pasted a white rectangular sticker with black print identifying the code for the radio. In my case, it was pasted on the inside back cover of the Owners Manual. The sticker has the MBZ emblem on the right, and alpha-numeric text on the right of the emblem making up 3 lines. One line has the code you are looking for, the other has the serial # of the radio.

Alternatively, contact a dealer near you, or send a letter to MBZ. If you send a letter to MBZ you must include the VIN #, and may want to include somthing to prove the you purchased the car and you shipped it to Africa.

Good luck.
