I switched out the battery on my car and my car stereo said code ----.

Me being stupid thought it was something simple like 1234 or 4321 or 0000 so i tried those 3 and then it said oFF. After having reaserched it later that day turns out that was a antitheft code that the origanl owner should know, or it should have been in the user manual which my car didnt have. So now iam stuck with a locked radio and i dont want to switch it out with a new one. What can i do?

we dont know the original owner we got it from a car lot, i dont have money for a new one, and its too much of a hassle.

Is there not a thing i can doo to unlock it?

your pretty much screwed unless ur the original owner. For my friends car the same thing happened but luckily they had bought it from a dealership so they gave us the code.

Don't quote me on this but i think there is a universal way to unlock it. Whats the year and model of the car? I can talk to a guy who works at a car shop if you want and see if theres anything you can do.

If none of the suggested things work, just take it to the dealer. As long as they can see that there is no foul play at hand, they should be able to help you out.

From another forum, may apply to you as well.......

I needed the unlock code for my 2001 Galant. Didn't want to pay dealer $40-$50 to look it up. I was directed to call 1-888-MITSU2005 from a post on another forum. Must have VIN#, and the MR number and serial number from radio. (Yes, you have to remove the radio to get the numbers) The lady at this number is very friendly, and it's FREE!!!! Would advise that owner of vehicle make the call. You will need social security number and your telephone number. Hope this helps!

**** you need ALL that information just for a radio UNLOCK code? WOW. For Hondas/Acura I know you can just call the dealership with the serial # of the radio and they'll give you the code.

Given that the serial number is printed right on the radio, that pretty much makes the whole anti-theft system worthless, doesn't it?

Not that it isn't worthless to start with.
