Is it a factory stereo system? If so you need to take photo ID, registration, and title to your car to the dealership. They'll use that info to look up the code for your stereo based on the VIN number of the vehicle. Make sure they give it to you written down and don't just enter it, so if you lose power again, you won't have to go back. This matters, because they can charge up to an hour's labor to do this for you.

Hi lost the code for radio, flat battery !!! seriel no is M013537, ford escort. anyone know the code thanks


Welcome to FixYa.

The problem with these security codes is that each radio carries a code that is unique and individual to the serial of radio itself. There is no master code for these radios. The good news is they can be decoded online once you have the serial number like you already have..


Ford will charge £25 for supplying you with this code and this is why I always recommend this site which does them for only £5.99

Hope it helps. Many thanks for using FixYa.

Just enter the serial details on site and you will have your code sent right back to your email or mobile phone. I use them regularly for radios that I repair and can confidently recommend them.

Battery went flat and radio would not work after battery replacement. Local Toyota dealers need to charge $70 Au to supply me with the code. Vehicle was purchased from a used van dealer not a Toyota...


It's going to be difficult to find this code without going through the dealer. If paying $70 is the case just for a code, you might want to consider just replacing the radio altogether. Yes is will cost more than $70 to do, but you will have many more function options with todays aftermarket radios. I'm sorry you couldn't get your code for cheaper or better yet for free.

You need to visit your dealer and ask for this code number with the right serial of your device. This is one unique number for each device and couldn't find in Internet.

My Toyotas battery went flat so now the radio is not working, it is displaying "SEC". I need to put in a 3 digit code. I do not know what the previous/old code is, so that I can cancel it and...


This is a security code that is specific to that radio for anti-theft reasons it comes up every time that radio loses power. It should be written in your manual or there should be a radio card that you received with the car that has the code on it. If you can't find this you're going to have to pull out the radio and get the serial number off of it and contact the toyota dealership for the security code.

I have mitsubishi mirage 2000 my car stereo is antitheft it needs a code to go back on i bought used and cant get contact from the person i end up buying it from can you help me.


I recently changed the battery in my car, and now my radio display indicates 'CODE' or 'OFF' and the radio is not working. What do I need to do?

As part of the radio's anti-theft system on some older model year vehicles (2002 and older), the radio resets itself whenever it loses power from the vehicle's battery. Radio security codes are associated with each individual radio unit rather than the vehicle identification number (VIN) (since a vehicle could have the radio replaced). The radio security code must be input in the radio in order for the radio to work.

When you purchased your vehicle, you should have received a card that lists the four digit security code for the radio. If you are unable to locate this card (sometimes owners find it inserted in the Owner's Manual or glove box), the radio will need to be removed so that you can locate the Part Number and Serial Number for your specific radio. The Part Number typically begins with the letters 'MR' and the Serial Number is generally a string of digits and both numbers can be located on the audit unit's chassis.

Please contact your local Authorized Mitsubishi Dealer if you need assistance removing the radio. Once the Part Number and the Serial Number are in hand, your Dealer can access the security code for that radio. You may also contact our Customer Relations Call Center at 1-888-MITSU2011 (1-888-648-7820) and one of our agents will be happy to provide you with the security code and steps to reset the radio as long as you have the Part Number and Serial Number for your radio unit. Agents are available Monday-Friday 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. (PT).

Battery went flat now no radio. The Motor vehicle Dealers where I purchased this second hand *** import have no record of the code to unlock the radio. My Honda is a 2005 Honda Fit


If the dealer cannot help then you must contact the support site of Honda to help you out.
Only if these codes are set the radio will work. Please check to see if the owners manual is market with these codes as most often dealers put them in. Also check the service centre where the car was serviced periodically.

HYUNDAI GETZ 2006 MP3-03G STEREO CODE Hi there! Bought a Hyundai Getz 2006 and the battery went flat, meaning that the MP3-03G stereo reset and wanted a security code. Problem is, that the code we...


Hello,

Radios have a theft-proof system that freezes the radio if power is interrupted. It was designed that way to prevent theft of the radio. The downside is your radio will be locked if you disconnect the battery for any reason, or if the battery dies. When you restore power, it will say ‘CODE‘ on the display.

  • When the radio displays CODE, you may enter the code using the preset radio station buttons
  • For instance, my number is 1615, so when I get the CODE on the radio’s display, I press the radio preset button 1, then the radio preset button 6, then the radio preset button 1, then the radio preset button 5.
  • If your radio says OFF, leave the ignition on in the first position for 2 1/2 to 3 hours in order for it to display CODE. In certain models you can clear the OFF state by pulling the fuse for the radio (#7 in my car). That’s a bit simpler than leaving the ignition in the first position for a couple of hours — particularly if you don’t have a garage. enter the code with the above procedure, if the problem still persist, am afraid you will need to take it to electronics repair workshop for diagnose, i advice you do not do it alone in other not to complicate issues.
Take care.
