Punch the four digit code into the radio then punch auto, and the security system should be activated

I have a 95 Honda civic. My cig. Liter works but my radio won't turn on no matter what I do. My clock resets every time I get in the car. I've replaced my wiring harness the fuse in my radio is...

Don't know if yours is one but some 95 Honda civic have a antitheft program. If the battery ever goes dead or voltage is removed from it, it will not work until a program code is given to bring the radio back to life. you might want to try searching 95 Honda civic radio code.

My security light is on and my radio gets locked sometimes while I'm driving. Does anyone one know why this happens?

yes, the anti theft system runs thru the radio. Either the radio is going bad and causing the antitheft to kick in, or the antitheft is bad and faulting the radio. I just went thru this in my girlfriends 01. Ended up installing after market radio and bypassing the security system. I bypassed thee antitheft security first, and the car worked just fine, but I didn't get any radio till I installed a new radio. Here Is a link to help with the antitheft

2001 dodge grand caravan sport.Grandkids left light on and killed Battery. Jumped the van got it started notice this morning going to work my Radio and speedometer isnt working.Checked fuses but none...

Make sure to check the engine compartment fuses and the inside fusebox, if all the fuses look good then try to unhook the battery and then connect it back on and start the van and see if this helps. the radio is it asking for a code, if this radio has antitheft then you will need to install the code to make it work, look at manual and it will tell you how to do this. the code is entered using the preset staition buttons, there should be a card in the glovebox with the radio code if it has antitheft. if you find no bad fuses then you may have short out the cluster jumping it, but most of the time it just needs a fuse or reseting by removing neg battery terminal for about 2min, good day let me know the outcome.

I bought a used radio for my 2003 silhouette I need to unlock the radio I need the proper procedures to unlock it.

You definately have a problem. In order to unlock the radio you will need the VIN of the vehicle that you got it from. You will also need proof of where you purchaced it from. Take all this information to a GM dealer and they should be able to unlock the radio by entering an "Override" code to unlock the radio. Then they will have to program your Engine Control Module to accept the "Brodcast ID" of the replacement radio. This is all part of the antitheft system designed to keep someone from stealing your radio and using it in another car. If you can't get the VIN of the vehicle that it came out of, the dealer will not be able to help you because there are many different override codes and they will not know which one to use without the original VIN.

Hello, My 2002 kia keeps asking for a code for the radio. It has never asked that before and Im afraid I dont know the code. Please help me with this problem. Thanks for your time, Sonia

That is part of the Antitheft system. Either you had a dead battery and had to jump start your car or the battery was disconnected for one reason or another. The only way to get your radio unlocked is to take the car to a Kia dealer. Make sure you have your photo ID and proof of registration with you. They will only unlock a radio for the registered owner of the vehicle. This is to keep someone from stealing your radio and using it in their car.

The antitheft light is blinking on the radio. the radio will not turn on either

You will need to enter the CODE. You should have a card with the Radio Code to enter. Did you have the battery replaced? if so, thats why its on. Usually the radio doesnt ask for the code unless it loses battery power. Its a good idea to let us know the complete history, even if you dont think its important.

Antitheft car radio

You have no choice but to take it to a dealer.
They will reprogram the code in the radio to match with the code in the anti-theft module.

First make sure you have not blown any fuses. If you have power to the radio then you should know some radios have an antitheft feature built in. When the power is disconnected (like in replacing a battery or if the radio was removed or stolen from a car) then you have to enter a code to activate it. Call the dealer and ask if they can help you with the code and procedures. Your owner's manual should have the procedure listed in it but the code should have been in the papers that came with your car when it was new. Again the dealer is your best bet. They will need your vehicle VIN and maybe even the radio serial number. There are some web sites that offer to sell you radio codes but I have had good luck with the dealers giving me them free.
