You can't. i assume it's a GM TheftLock unit. If so, you must take it to a dealership to be reset.

Clarion nx501 with hino and password


i hAVE the same exact issue and the 4 digit password to unlock it is the last 4 numbers the HINO trucks V.I.N... they say u only get 3 tries and it locks it and the only way to unlock it is to contact clarion... lick my balls clarion the default password is 0000 and u get 3 tries but just disconnect the power and reconnect the power and BAM... you will be asked to enter a security code all over again...0000 that is your unlock code.

as for the start- up HINO screen... good luck. its called a splash screen and you would have to hack clarions firmware in order to do so and i suppose if you were able to locate the internal hard drive but even then. clarion invested billions to protect their operation systems in their devices. i think the image is burned into the chip where the head unit was sent from a hino dealer brand new in a box directly to clarion's I.T. to have changed cause it comes factory as a clarion boot screen.

you will also notice that the hint clarion nx501 wiring harness is altered so to make work in that truck that only comes with two front speakers.... the rear speaker leads are nowhere to be found; GONE like a new brides panties!.. you also won't have any rya leads ect.. gay gay situation and if u figure out the splash screen change let me know.

peace.

Sound cuts off after no more than 10 minutes!


SOUNDS LIKE THE ANTI THEFT SYSTEM HAS SET ITSELF ON YOUR RADIO CAUSING RADIO TO SHUT OFF AFTER 10 MINUTES. THIS WAS DUE TO POWER FAILURE WHEN YOU DISCONNECTED BATTERY TO PUT NEW ONE IN. THIS IS COMMON. YOU MUST ENTER RADIO ALARM CODE FROM OWNERS MANUAL OR CONTACT DEALER TO GET CODE FOR YOUR VEHICLE. HOPE THIS HELPS!!

I had a new battery put in now the radio comes on and COD is displayed. HELP I need my music


Hi,
I'm assuming we are talking about a car receiver, and you just had the battery changed in the car. Changing the battery triggers an anti-theft feature in the radio, as if it had been taken out of the car and was trying to be used someplace else.
If it is a factory radio, you will have to go by a dealership to get the code. I drive an older, beat-up BMW, and the one time I needed a radio code for it, I was required to bring the car in physically. One, to make sure a dealership hadn't swapped radios somewhere along the line, and Two, to make sure I wasn't the thief trying to get the radio I had just stolen to work! :)
If this is an after-market car radio, there should be a code in the paperwork that came with it.

Had dead battery. Now radio says I need a code to unlock it.


What type of radio is this? If it is aftermarket, then typically Eclipse and Kenwood are the only units that utilize radio codes. If it is a factory radio (Honda, Acura, Audi, VW typically), then you will need the code which is 4 or 5 digits long and located in your owners manual or vehicle documentation on a small card the size of a credit card. If this is unavailable, then you will need to visit a local stereo shop, have your radio removed and re-installed, and your serial number written down. Take your radio's serial number to any dealer for your car manufacturer, and they will provide you with the unlock code. Hope this helps.

Need 1996 acura unlock radio code


I had to have my radio pulled out to get the code from the bottom of the radio. There was no note in the manual about the code. Then I had to take the code to the Acura Dealer to phone it in to the factory to get the code to unlock the radio's reciever ability. It cost me $50 to have the radio pulled out to get those numbers from the bottom of the radio, but the Acura Dealer used those numbers to get the radio working for free. I had to take my car into the Dealer to get it done.

Radio code


Hi fresh123

The code to unlock your stereo will be individual to your car. All of these cars come new with a card with the radio code printed on it. Check the glove box for the owners manual or the original card. Also try looking in the fuse compartment. The code card is sometimes left with the spare fuses. If you do not have one, you will probably have to call a local Hyundai dealer to obtain the code. You will need to give them the VIN number of your car. If you are in the US, try this number 1-800-633-5151 and they will be able to steer you.
Best of luck!
