Why do radios become locked?

All modern radios are now come with a security system which is designed to ‘lock’ the radio whenever it detects that someone is attempting to steal your radio from your vehicle. This works great when the radio correctly detects this happening. As the radio will become unusable unless the thief can find out the radio code. Sometimes however this security system can have a false activation and your radio code will lock for seemingly no reason. There are a few different things which can cause this such as the below.

  • You have just replaced your vehicles battery or it has just lost all of it’s charge.
  • Your vehicle has been in a collision.
  • Faulty wiring.

The reason why this security system was implemented was due to the increase in the amount of thefts of radios from vehicles, they tend to be valuable and easy to steal particularly in older cars. Since this security system was implemented the amount of thefts of radios has decreased massively. In line with the amount of insurance claims for stolen radios and damage to vehicles.

What do you need to unlock your Kia radio?

To unlock your Kia radio you will need to find out what the radio code is for it. To do this you will first need to find out the serial number of your radio. This is because your serial number is linked directly to your radio code and is used in the generation process. There are a few different ways of doing this, however we have chosen and explained the two best methods of finding yours out below. Once you have found out the serial number of your radio, you will then need to download and use our Kia radio code generator. How you can do it is explained in the next section of this guide.

We first recommend that you take a look at all of the paperwork that came with your vehicle/radio. You are looking for the serial number of your radio. Sometimes this was included depending on the age of your radio. If this fails, the best way of finding the serial number of your radio out is by removing the radio from your vehicle and taking a look around the rear of it. You are looking for a label which will have the serial number of your radio printed onto it.
