In this tutorial we will explain to you why your radio has become locked. We will also explain how you can go about generating your own Toyota radio code for free. The whole process of unlocking your radio will take you around 10-15 minutes.
Why has your radio become locked?
The way in which your radio was designed is that when it detects that someone is trying to steal it, a security feature will activate and will ‘lock’ your radio. This means that your radio will be rendered unusable as it will now request a Toyota radio unlock code in order to unlock it. Not to worry though, you will soon be able to unlock your radio when we help you find out the radio code for it. There are a few different causes of a false activation in radio security systems which include but are not limited to the following:
- Your vehicle has been in an accident.
- Your vehicles battery has lost all of its charge or has just been replaced.
- You have tampered with your radio in some way.
- Your vehicle has an electrical fault.
- Your radio is faulty.
What do you need to unlock your Toyota Radio?
For you to be able to unlock your Toyota radio, you will need something called a radio code. This is a unique code which is between 4 and 8 digits long. This radio code is unique to your radio, there is an incredibly low chance that another radio will have the same radio code as yours. The radio code of your radio is linked to the serial number of your radio, this is also a unique number. It is linked to your radio code and is used in the generation process. This therefore means that if you are able to find out the serial number of your radio, you will be able to generate a Toyota radio code from it.
How to generate a free Toyota radio code
In this step we will explain to you how you can find out the Serial Number of your radio, this is needed in order for you to be able to successfully generate your own Toyota radio code. There are a few different ways for you to be able to find out your radios serial number. We have explained two of the best methods to you below.
Method one) First check all of the paperwork which came with your vehicle/radio. You are looking for the serial number of your radio. Sometimes this was included, however depending on the age/model of your Toyota radio it might not be there.
Method two) For this method you will need to remove your Toyota radio from your vehicle. You are looking for label which will be stuck onto the rear side of the radio. This will have the serial number of your radio printed onto it. Make a note of it then re-install your radio back into your vehicle.
