I am assuming that you replaced the factory unit with another stock Volvo head unit? If this is the case, you can pull the unit back out and get the unlock code off the label on the unit. If this is missing, you will need to go to a local dealer and have them reprogram the unit if that's still possible. Good luck.

5000rds eon , hi guys I need your help to unlock this radio :/ unlock 12 so I guess , got a last attempt to unlock it , I used the code which was on the back of radio but it's not working ,

If the previous owner set the code there is no way to know what it is unless they wrote it down. If it was factory set the it's usually all zeros, IMO, I'd take it to the dealer and let them unlock it then set your own code or leave it at zeros

SEC appears on the radio Lexus ES300

SEC stands for security, the radio is in theft lock you must enter the unique code security that came with the car when new to unlock the radio, this SEC is triggered whenever the radio losses power like a theft or a battery disconnect. If you don't have this unique code you must see the Lexus dealer, they can look it up in the factory information link, it goes by the serial number of the radio and the VIN or the car.

The factory radio has been locked out

the dealer is the only one that can unlock a locked radio, they will need to remove the radio, get a "code" off of the sticker on the back of it, and then call the dealers unlock assistance number to get an unlock code. it cant be done with out the dealer. im sorry :(

Trying to find unloc code for Chev Astro Radio using the info that I have, the numbers displayed on the radio are 052 then 053

These numbers are your code to unlock the radio.What you need to do is take these numbers to the dealership and they call the G.M. technical center and they give the dealership the code to unlock your radio.The only ones that can get this code is the dealership because the have to use what is called they`re dealer code number to get the unlock code.I don`t know if they will charge for this or not.When I worked at a dealership we did not charge for this service.It only takes about 5 minutes to get the unlock code.Good luck.
