Whenever you disconnect the radio from power on a 1998 honda accord you must enter the radio code . sometimes the dealer sales dept writes the code in your manual, sometimes they keep it on file where the car was sold new; the owners manual will tell you how to set the code on your car, if you need the code go to your honda parts department give them a copy of your title and drivers license and they will provide you with the code. once you know its easy

I need the radio code for a recently purchased XJS Jaguar


As an anti-theft deterrent, Jaguar began installing radios at the end of the Series III era which required the input of a security code to enable the radio to function. While coded radios are a pain, our experience is that they have drastically reduced the radio theft rates in major cities like Atlanta.
When cars with coded radios were first sold, the owner received a pair of plastic cards, about the size of regular credit cards, listing the radio code. When used Jags trade hands, these cards are forgotten and usually are not passed on with the car. And then when the battery dies and is replaced, the radio insists upon being recoded before it will work again.
One tip is that the dealer technicians frequently would write the radio code under the hood of the car in marker. There are also reports that the radio code was on a paper label which was stuck to the underside of the hood when the radio was installed. So if you do not have your code, it is a good idea to look under the hood for the paper label or for a hand-written four or five digit number. You may get lucky; we have known owners who found their radio code in this manner.
To recode the radio once you have the code, turn the car’s ignition on and then turn the radio on until the word "code" is displayed on the radio faceplate. Enter the radio code slowly and deliberately, firmly pushing on each button. If you have entered the correct code, after the last numeral is entered the radio will beep and then begin to play on the last station selected. If the radio has been uncoded for a long time, or if power has been removed from the radio for a long time, sometimes you will be unable to enter what you know is the correct radio code. In these cases, leave the radio powered, with "code" displaying, for an hour or so and then try to reenter the code. The code will usually take after doing this.
It is not possible to guess at the radio code and to just keep trying combinations of numbers until stumbling on the correct code. The radio will accept only three coding attempts before it locks up for an hour. Then you have three more attempts before it locks up for eight hours, then three more tries before it locks up for 24 hours, and so on. The times indicated may not be accurate, but the process is correct as described.
If you cannot locate your radio code, either from the previous owner or from the car itself, the only way to get the security code is to pull the radio to retrieve the radio’s serial number and to request the code from your friendly Jaguar dealer. All dealers have the ability to retrieve these codes, although they will vary in their willingness to do so for individual owners.

How to insert the code for the radio of my golf3 /1996



ENTERING SECURITY CODE

Most vehicles are equipped with Heidelberg V or VI radios that are equipped with a theft protection program. When the battery has been is disconnected or if the radio has been removed, the radio will lock-up electronically and cannot be operated until the security code is entered. On the Heidelberg V, if the proper code is not entered in six attempts, the radio will lock-up permanently and cannot be repaired. On the Heidelberg VI, two incorrect attempts will lock the radio for about 1 hour.
The Heidelberg V may have a code assigned at the factory or a personal code created by the owner. The Hiedelberg VI has a code assigned at the factory and entered by the dealer during pre-delivery inspection. New radios come with the code printed on a sticker but not entered into memory. All codes are 4 digits. To code the radio:
Heidelberg V

  1. Turn the radio ON . The radio should display the word SAF. DO NOT attempt to eject a cassette with the radio in this mode.
  2. Push the AM/FM and SCAN buttons at the same time and hold them until the display changes, then release them immediately. The number 1000 will appear for about 3 seconds, then the display will go blank. Release the buttons then.


NOTE If the buttons are held too long, the radio will interpret this as an attempt to enter an incorrect code.
  1. Use the first four station selector buttons to enter the code. The first digit of the code is always 1. Each time the other buttons are pushed, the number in that position will change.
  2. When the code appears correctly in the display, push the AM/FM and SCAN buttons at the same time. When the radio plays and displays a frequency, release the buttons.
  3. If the code was entered incorrectly three times, momentarily disconnect the battery and try again. If the code is entered incorrectly three more times, the radio cannot be coded and cannot be repaired.

  2. When the code appears correctly in the display, push the AM/FM and SCAN buttons at the same time. When SAF appears in the display, release the buttons. The radio should play and display a frequency.
  3. If the code was entered incorrectly two times, leave the radio ON for one hour and try again. This can be repeated as often as required.

2000 Mitsubishi Mirage--Changed battery, code displayed on car radio screen; played with entering numbers, pushed the audio button, now OFF is displayed. What to do?


If you entered the incorrect code several times you may have ruined your chances of getting radio to work. On vehicles with anti theft radio when the battery is disconnected or the vehicle looses power the radio licks and to enable it a code is needed. The dealer may be able to help you but they would need certain information. Sometimes the vin of the car or some times the radio has to be removed to get the serial number. But if the wrong code is entered after so many attempts the radio becomes completely disable. To the point where you will not be prompted to enter a code.

Our onboard computer sound system for our 323i 1999 convertible says code wait. what do we do?


A radio code is required to activate the radio on your car after your battery has died or your radio has lost power. If you attempt to enter the wrong code multiple times the system will lock you out for a set amount of time. The code can be retrieved by going to your local dealership where they will remove your radio with a special tool and retrieve the serial number from the back of the radio. This process is fairly quick and does NOT require leaving your car there. Your radio will have to be on for approximately 30 minutes before you can enter the proper code.

How to reset the raido


Hello,

There is a trick to the procedure. You have to turn the key to position 1 or the first stop on the ignition. Turn on the radio and wait between 2.0 to 3.0 hours for the radio to reset and ask for the code. From the owners manual. My 97 takes between 2:25 and 2.5 hours to reset. Every radio is different.

To enter the code:

After installation or when the set has been disconnected from power, the set displays "codE" when it is switched on.
Enter the 4-digit code using the preset buttons. If the correct code is entered, "on" is displayed and the set is ready to use.
If you enter an incorrect code you must enter the correct code again from the beginning.

Incorrect code

If an incorrect code has been entered "rPt" is displayed. Enter the correct code.
After three unsuccessful coding attempts the set will lock and remain locked for two hours.
"OFF" is displayed.

During this waiting period:

the battery must be connected
the ignition key must be turned to position I
the unit must be turned on
Make sure the headlights are turned off to help prevent battery drain (please refer to page 2:6 for information on turning the headlights off). Enter the code again once this time has elapsed.

Goodluck!
