Question about Sony CDX-M610 CD Player

1 Answer

Radio malfunction Hey everyone, I just bought a used car with this system installed and it worked for a little while. However, now every radio station only emits static. The C.D. player works fine, but the radio refuses to give me my music. Is there a code that I have to get to reset it? I changed the car battery and my friends have told me to look for this mysterious code that allows for operation. Please, any advice will benefit my crisis, Help me if you can!

There's definitely no code you can enter to fix this. Sony doesn't use anti-theft codes, and in brands that do, they don't work like you're describing. Either the unit is defective or the antenna has been disconnected.

After Market Radio Installation

Hey man, you have an amplified system. use a 70-1858 wiring harness and jump the blue/white wire from the aftermarket radio to the pink wire on the second plug. this will power on the factory amp with the aftermarket radio.

I am replacing the radio on my daughters Accord with a OEM radio she purchased from LKQ. My question is do we need a code for the replacement radio or will the code found in the car work?

Hey, where she bought it from should have been able to give you a code from it, and sometimes the one on your vehicle will work.

But sometimes you do have to take it to the dealer and have them unlock the radio.

If the stereo was removed, the speakers may have been removed as well. Did you check if they are there?
Also, you need to make sure the car didn't have a Bose system installed - that system adds an amp between the radio and the speakers, and if the amp is in place, your aftermarket radio can't use it (if it is there or has been removed, you will have to bypass the connectors at the amp location so the wiring at the radio can reach the speakers directly).
In any case, you need to find and look up the entertainment system option installed when the car was built, and the get a wiring diagram for that system (try

Stuck on auto a/c and no radio

I kno exactly how to fix your problem!!! I me and my brother in law found the solution by accident!!! Il take a pic if need be. So we were taking the radio out to install my pxamg ipod kit in by g35 coupe 2005. When we put the radio back in I had the same problem as you. Naturally I freaked out. But my brother in law who is a genius found out that this little thing thats VERY VERY VERRRRY senstive when moved easily falls out of place turns off the WHOLE radio and ac controls and the ac goes crazy sometimes. So you can try punching the RIGHT BOTTOM side of your radio or if you really want take the whole radio out and look at the bottom right side of it and youll see this little thing that if you wiggle it a little it should go back the way its supposed too. It then fixes everything and BAM! u save 1000 dollars cuz the dealerships stupid and "didnt know" about this tiny little thing that when moved a tiny bit makes your radio and ac go haywire. Hope this helps everyone. If possible please make this a sticky so no one else makes the mistake of paying a lot of money to fix a relatively small issue to fix.

Locked radio

Call the dealer and using your Vin they can retrieve your code check your owners manual as most people have written it in there. If that doesnt work your radio security feature may have malfunctioned and need repair or replaced.

Kenwood radio is locked

Go to your local dealership for your make of car. ask them if they do radio/cd player re-codes.. if not they should be able to put you in touch with someone who does as they use them all the time to re-code their trade in car sound systems... it usually costs about 15 quid or so...hope this helps..cheers.
