Assuming you have tried standard default codes 0000, 1111, 1234...
Clarion models keep the security code in non-magnetic memory inside the unit.
The only way to reset is to return it to clarion to have it cracked and reset using their proprietay software, and/or replace the flash memory chip.

Clarion authorized service centers cannot even do it (like Kenwood can)

If it says CODE, you can attempt to enter a code. If it says LOCK - after 7 attempts, you must wait 15 minutes.


Hope this helps

Regards

Dan

Stereo stopped working will not turn back on


Many car stereos use an anti-theft pass-code scheme. If the stereo is removed from the vehicle, lock-off is triggered by the loss of battery power to the stereo, and the only way to get it to turn on is to enter the pass-code on the front panel buttons. If you had to disconnect the battery, or it went completely dead on you, that's your problem. Check the manual for your stereo for details.

Note: some stereos requiring entering the pass-code before disconnecting the battery - for those who might have such systems, save yourself some grief and check your user's manual ASAP so you are prepared.

Another possibility is a shorted speaker amplifier has blown the radio fuse. Check the speaker wiring for damaged insulation before you install the repaired or replaced stereo. A competent electronic technician can generally check the amplifier modules or transistors for shorts and replace them as needed. Be sure to ask which speaker output is bad so you know which one needs a wiring check.

Just put new battery in my 2001 Saturn and now I can't get my stereo to play. Please help


If it is a factory stereo,you have to call a Saturn dealer and they will give you a code to unlock.I don't know if the automatically tell you how to do it so you may have to ask.Write it down too because it will happen every time the battery gets disconnected and sometimes it needs to be even though they aren't working on your battery.Good luck!

you will have to have the stereo removed by a dealer and show them proof of ownership of vehicle and pay them to get the codes and enter them the good thing is they will give you the code for your records so you dont have to do it again

Locked stereo in 1995 Holden Barina


I dont know if holden barina uses the same stereo as a US GM vehicle, but if it is a delco stereo (same as US models) then any gm dealer can retrieve the scrambled code and call their automated system to get the unscrambled unlock code. Just make sure if they do this for you to have them disable the theftlock system. With theftlock disabled a dead battery will not cause you any further problem. Hope this helps.
