    Thanks but I am not close to a Kia Dealer at the moment hence my query online. If I provide my VIN can you provide a code?

You need to contact a Kia dealer and provide them your VIN# and they will give you the security code for your radio. TIP: once you get it, write it down in your glovebox with a Sharpie (so you have it)

    I cannot, the dealer is the only source - you'll have to call them (it's a security code) If it was available online, then anyone could steal your radio & get the code.

Replaced the battery in my 2005 Kia Rio and it locked the radio. Need to reset the radio


You can't reset it yourself. It takes a scanner at your Local Dealership to do it. People do it, (new battery) everyday unaware that doing so can and usually does, arm the theft system and either kills the radio or the whole car. To me it's just another built-in defect that requires dealer assistance. It's a buzzkill I know, and it probably won't be long until car owners won't even have access to the engine compartment. They will need your VIN, and then they call HQ to get the code for your radio.

Error 7 on 2005 Honda CRV Radio


I had the same issue with the radio code error lock on a 2005 CRV. I was unaware of the code procedure and had locked the radio in the "ERROR E" mode. I was able to unlock the radio by pulling the #9 back up fuse located in the fuse box in the engine compartment. This reset the radio to CODE which then allowed me to input the 5 digit number which I had in my glove box along with my owner's manual. I am happy to report I now have a working radio/ CD player.
