When the key is in the ignition do you see a green light flashing that looks like a key?
I would need the serial number off the radio to get you the unlock code for that.
You do not have a security system issue. if those lights are flashing when you try to start the car that tells me you have a dead battery or low enough on charge to keep the car from starting.
You will need to remove the radio then so you can get the serial number off the label on the radio.
You didn't say it was an aftermarket radio. Do you know what model radio?
On the unit, press theSTOPbutton and theCD EJECTbutton at the same time. The screen will say locked still. Release them and press them togetheragainat the same time. The screen will now read unlocked. You can then eject the CD.
Were you able to find a model number on it?
yes on the stereo. I can try and find a way to unlock it from the model number.
Well you brought up the locked stereo. Did you try jump starting the car yet?
Ok, let's start with a simple check. Turn the key on and let me know if you see the check engine light go on.
It should go on and then back off after a few seconds.
