Chrysler Radio Code
Just as with many other brands, a part of the factory radio receivers and navigations installed in Chrysler and Jeep cars is secured by a 4-digit anti-theft password. Depending on the radio model, the code ranges from: 1111-5555 or 1111-6666. The code should be entered after replacing the battery or repairs that require disconnection of the power source. The problem occurs if you lose your card with a code or after purchasing a used car when the previous owner did not give you the PIN code.
How to recover the code?
It is impossible to generate the code with the use of the VIN number. In order to recover the lost code, it is necessary to dismantle the radio from the dashboard and read the data contained on the label. After removing the radio, you should find a 14-digit radio’s serial number (S/N), which is saved on a label or stamped on a metal casing. The radio symbol or navigation symbol may also be helpful. The radio code is connected with a unique serial number. Serial numbers start with the following characters: TM9, TQ1, T00BE (Becker), TCC, TBC, THA, T00AM – e.g.: T Q1 AA 043 9 54321. Knowing the serial number, it is possible to calculate the radio code.
