Question about Car Audio & Video

1 Answer

Stereo code My battery went dead after a trip to California. I had the battery carefully charged but now my stereo won't power up. I only have the VIN # and the dealership won't provide the serial # or code. Is there any way to obtain this info? Is there something wrong with a sensor or a did a fuse go out?

Your system just needs to be reset. The dealer or even autozone does the sevice for free. They will plug it into you car data part.

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.

How To Find Your Radio/Stereo Unlock Code


<span><span>As a security feature, the Radio or Stereo Unlock Code is meant to prevent another person from using the Stock Stereo from your vehicle without proof of ownership of the vehicle. To obtain the Unlock Code for your Radio or Stereo, you will need the title, VIN, proof of insurance, etc. to prove that you own the vehicle or are authorized to Unlock the Stereo using the factory generated code. At the dealership, this should always be a free service, but some dealerships may charge to generate or lookup the Stereo Unlock Code.<br /><br />When you have your Radio Unlock Code, use the Preset Keys to input this code into your Stereo. You should hear a Beep when this code has been entered, this is an Unlock Confirmation. To retrieve your code, try the following suggestions:<br /> <ol> <li>If you have your Service or Owners manual, usually in the Glove compartment, look for the Radio Security Code in there. Usually it is on a White, Credit Card looking card, in the Manual.</li> <li>You can also check on the Sides of the <a href="/../cars/t8671868-unplugged_battery_post#"><span>Glove</span><span> </span><span>box</span></a>, inside and outside, for the Radio Code. It may be on a Sticker. Sometimes you can also find the Code under the Ash tray, on or around the Door Jamb on the door, or on the <a href="/../cars/t8671868-unplugged_battery_post#"><span>vehicle</span></a>, and in the Trunk, or on the bottom of the Trunk Lid.</li> <li>You can also use your VIN in many cases by calling the Dealer Service Department, and they can lookup the Radio Code using the VIN.</li> <li>If all else fails, you will have to remove the Stereo to gain access to the Serial Number. Write this number down and contact your Local Dealership to retrieve the Unlock Code for your Stereo. There is no charge for this.</li></ol></span></span>

Jvc car stereo KD-R570 flashing red


To test radio to see if its working you can bench test it. This means to combine red and yellow and run to 12V positive and Black to 12V negative. IF radio turns on, it would mean its working.

Hi, I have a 1998 Mitsubishi Spyder gs ...my battery went dead and I need the CODE . Can it be found on the stereo system and if not where can I get it? Thank you, ASW


You must write down you VIN number. Also you may have to remove the radio to get the serial number and model number and write it down. Call the dealer or you may have to go to the Mitsubishi dealer and provide this information and prove you own the vehicle for them to relenquish the information. At this time they will tell you what you would need to push in order to bring the radio back to life. Hope this helps.

Whats the code number


Stereo Code Cards are usually located in the glove box. The code card looks like a credit card. Your local dealership should be able to retrieve the stereo code from the VIN of your vehicle. Or the serial number of the stereo may be needed. Most parts dept. will help at no charge.
