Turn the ignition to "on", turn the radio to "on" then enter the code using the appropriately numbered radio push button selectors. If the wrong code is entered, the radio may lock up; even when the correct code is then entered. Make sure the battery is fully charged. Low battery voltage can also cause the radio to not recognize the code. Once the code has been entered three times unsuccessfully, the key will have to be left in the "on" position for one hour. This will reset the radio so that the correct code can be entered again.
