First make sure that the code has not been noted somewhere within the car (underneath the ash tray, glove box , rear of sun visor etc)
To see if your code is available here for free then the radio will have to be removed from the dashboard (and if you are lucky, someone may have written the code on the casing ) .
Also quote the make of the car.
note: Unfortunately not all radios can be decoded using the Serial Number

If not then try your Main Dealer for the code...........or take it into a Decode Service who will plug in a laptop to read/recode the memory chip (EEPROM). This takes a few minutes and shouldn`t be too expensive.

Also check this bellow link….

Let us know if you have something more to know else accept the suggestion.

Thank You for contacting

Happened to me to just turn it of, like take the front off and make sure your car has been running for a while and its not cold outside then turn it back on and put it in, mine works but when its cold out it wont till the car warms up. Pretty **** man

The wire should be located right on the parking brake itself under the dash on the left side of the kick panel.Its only a one wire and maybe up at the top of it.It will have a black like plug on the end of it and should be the only one next to it..Hope this helps you and have a great day

I’m happy to assist further over the phone at

Definitly can be due to extreme cold weather. That's why I leave mine open! Try this, when the heat in the car gets warm inside, does it perform better?

Checked Panasonic's website for a remote, but part was not listed. You can call them at National Parts Center at 800-833-9626

Hope that helped you.

I dont know if there is a way to reset it... Look up the manual for the CQVX100U on the internet, and see if there is a procedure... If not, contact Panasonic customer service 1-800-211-7262

For the manual.
An authorized dealer is required by service agreement to install this wire to the parking brake which creates a ground when applied. The shadetree installer, however can hook to ground anywhere on the vehicle. I would recommend to put it on a hidden switch,as it is illegal to have a video in view of the driver.... and you can turn it off quickly if/when pulled over!
