The correct radio SERIAL NUMBER is required for a code

First remove the radio from the dashboard.

Then post the radio make+model plus all the letters+numbers on any labels,barcodes and a 14 character Serial Number stamped in the metal casing.

This information can then be used to see if a code can be calculated

I just bought 5401 bmw 1995,the radio is showing code which i don't know and the manual did not come with it


That means that the battery has been disconnected. You will need to pull the radio out of the dash far enough to read the serial number. Then ask a service writer at the dealer to look up the code to unlock the radio. You punch in the code using the number buttons on the radio.

I replaced mt battery on my 2004 jaguar x-type and the radio is locked i bought the car second hand so i dnt know the radio code and the factory code isnt working. what can i do


Simple contact you local Jag dealership and ask them, they will need the VIN No and there is a small charge (about £8). Then follow the instructions on http://www.bluejag.co.uk to enter code.

Just changed the battery for the first time in 2004 crv LX model. Everything fine, but radio/cd etc just has the word COde across the display and nothing will work...??? what is the code and/or how do I...


Whenever you disconnect a car battery, the radio needs to have the Security code installed. It is for theft protection. It is the code you programed into it when you bought the car. If you bought the car new, the code is usually a series of zero's, usually 3 or 4. If you bought the car used, you may have to contact the previous owner, & ask what they used as a radio code, or if they recoded it. If that is not possible, you'll have to take it to a dealer, to have the radio reprogrammed. If you have an owners manual, it will be described in there also, on how to do it all.

The batterty needed replaced in my 2003 Altima And when I had the new batttery put in the Radio will not come on. No clock, No lights, nothing. I tried replacing the fuses and I don't believe that is it.


Does your radio have a security code to make it work again after a battery disconnect? Some models have that in case of radio theft. It makes the radio worthless to the theif because he will not have the code to make it work. If you don't have the code, go to the dealership and ask them if they have or can get the code. If you bought the car new it will probably be with your records or if you bought it used, they may have put it in owners manual or in the records somewhere. Hope this helps. Best wishes.

Good news: You do not have to worry about you issue.
Your radio (if it is a "factory" radio) does NOT require a security reset code. You do not have an "anti-theft" radio. You can disconnect the battery cables at will, and the only issue you will have is that you will lose the preset stations that you set manually.
The "anti-theft" radios were abandoned by Toyota several years ago. Hope this eases your mind.
