Customer Question

how to unlock radio on pt cruiser

HelloCustomer, Welcome to justanswer...

 

You need the correct code to unlock your radio.

 

This code will be on a card that will be with the cars documentation / handbooks etc ...

If you do not have this , you will have to ring your local Chrysler dealer who will, upon production of proof ownership and proof of ID , provide you with your correct code to enter.

 

You shouldn't;t keep trying to enter any old / incorrect code such as you have , ie 1111, 2222 etc etc -- as after several attempts the radio will lock up and you will then have to send the radio away to be unlocked electronically... that is un necessary expense for you...

 

Once you have the correct code, the radio will work again properly.

 

I Sincerely XXXXX XXXXX have helped you - Please ask me if you need more help...

 

Kind Rgds,.... MIKE

Customer: replied 5 years ago.

can someone do that for me since the dealer in Cyprus is not helpfull because i bought the car in uk.The car is in my name but i dont have the hand book

 

Expert:  Mike replied 5 years ago.

Hello again....

 

Oh dear - it gets worse for you eh...

 

Ok , Im willing to give this a try for you -- its not normal procedure but I will do what I can...

 

I will need you to give me the registration number if the car - and the VIN ( chassis number ) ...

 

If you can get the radio out -- then if you can give me ALL the numbers off the side radio too... that will give me a better chance...

 

I have to tell you now that as we have hit New Year... it will be at least Friday before I can get this info for you -- if I can do it... but as I say.. I will try.

 

If it cant be got - then it will be case of removing the radio , locating someone near you who has the machinery to electroncally extract the radio code from its eeprom ( chip) inside the radio... but we will try this other method first for you if you like.

 

Rgds, MIKE
