First of all though, we feel that it is best that we explain what radio unlocking is before we proceed and start the process of unlocking your radio.
What is Radio Unlocking?
Radio unlocking is required when your radio becomes locked due to the activation of an anti-theft security feature of your radio. This can sometimes happen by mistake for example if you’ve changed your vehicles battery or if there’s a software glitch. The reason for this security feature is that is there to discourage thieves from stealing your radio due to the fact it will become locked, meaning it will become pretty much worthless if sold on the black market. In order to unlock the radio you will need something called a radio code to unlock it, this is a unique number usually between 4 and 6 digits long which you need to enter into your radio.
This security feature has been a huge success in terms of reducing the amount of thefts and attempted thefts of radios from vehicles. It has also reduced the amount of damage caused to vehicles. Both of these things combined have helped to reduce insurance premiums for everyone due to the reduction in the amount of insurance claims. This is good news however when you encounter the problem of a locked radio and you’re the rightful owner it can be quite the annoyance. This problem usually arises due to a software glitch or if you have changed your vehicles battery sometimes this can cause the issue to arise.
