Your Dodge Sprinter comes equipped with an anti-theft radio. If someone removes the radio from your car or if your car dies, it locks down, preventing unauthorized access. To access your radio, you then need to enter the appropriate unlock code. Your dealership may provide this service, but it is often for a fee. Instead, you can find a way to unlock the radio on your own.
Things You'll Need
- Car owner's manual
- Serial number
- Unlock code
Look through your car's owner manual for an anti-theft card. It is about the size of a business card. On it will be your radio's serial number and possibly an unlock code.
Contact your dealership if you cannot locate the code. Provide your vehicle's serial number for proof of ownership. Write down the unlock code.
Press and hold the "Tune" button. Enter the unlock code into the radio. Use the preset buttons to enter the numbers.
Wait for the music to play. This means that you have successfully unlocked the radio.
Tips & Warnings
- Entering the code wrong too many times permanently locks your radio.
