If its locked then to unlock it the radio system needs to be reprogrammed.

To reprogram the radio there is 4 digit code. That code has to be inserted, once these code is inserted, your car radio will get into its actual setting where you can set/select your radio setting.


Many a time's radio asks for the code after car battery is disconnected.

On some cases to retrieve the code its mentioned in manual or else car dealer is other option to get car radio code.

I need a 4 digit security code for a DC283 Philips car stereo. Photo attached with serial numbers.


Nobody can give you one. That's a unique number for your stereo. The stereo has become locked, much like a phone will lock and require a code to unlock it. Nobody here will know that code.
The only hope you have is if the code is either four zeros (0000) or (1234) Good luck. Multiple wrong entries may lock the stereo permanently.

hi, I have the same problem. The central remote locking is controlled by the soriginal stereo. Thats why it has an extra section of wires than other stereos. I cut this section off and connect it back to the original stereo and the remote lock works again. but as long as you connect the rest of the wires to the new stereo, the lock lost again. Now is like nly music or the lock. I have not find a way to let both of them work. Please let me know if you do.
