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.

the stereo may have connection with your anti theft device, drive your car to the dealer and they can reset the device for you at a minimal charge. this should resolve these issues. Good luck

I need the radio code for my 2004 Civic Honda I should have received a card with the code I changed the battery, but I don't have the code Can somebody help me?

Take photo ID, registration, and title with you to the dealership. This proves you are who you say you are, and that the car in question is yours. The dealer can look up the code based on your VIN number, but they rarely do it for free - they may charge you up to an hour's labor to do it. Make sure that they write down the code for you, and they show you how to enter it as well. That'll save you another return trip if the stereo loses power again.

I changed the car battery after it went flat , and the car radio and casset are not working , so if anyone can help me to find the security code no. plzzz that will be great. thanks

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.
