02 1.5 Obtaining Radio Code - liefy
Hi all, (sorry if this has been asked before)

I recently bought an Almera from a franchised dealer. They didn't have the radio code but said they could get it if I needed it. I called them the other day to ask if they can obtain it. They said that they contacted Nissan but they don't keep it, but it can be found printed on top of the radio if it is taken out.

1) Do Almeras actually have a radio code?

2) If so, would I find it on top of the radio if I remove it? Surely that would be pointless as if someone steals it, they would have the code!

3) Is there another way to get the code if it isn't on top of the radio?

Many thanks

im pretty sure the radio is tied into the nats security on this car and as such if you dont have the code supplied at first registration then its a dealer only supply via the chassis number
im ready to be proved wrong though

Hi, thanks for the reply.

By 'tied into the nats security', do you mean that the radio will work as long as I have the nats keyset?

Maybe I should have been clearer before. What I'd like to know is, if the battery is disconnected, will I have to put in a code after to use the radio - or could it possibly work when i just put the nats key in the ignition?

I don't work to disconnect the battery to find out I need a code for which I will have to pay!

Cheers

I suspect you don't need to bother.

My '53 reg with the radio built into the dashboard doesn't need a code - to nick it you'd need to take a large proportion of the car.

no it wont work once you disconnect the battery
you should have a radio code on a card and you re input this once you reconnect the battery
sometimes old nissan radios worked as i guess the code had been sidestepped but i think it unlikely on your car
the reason the dealer told you the code was on the set was to get rid of you by the way,not a nice trick i hasten to add

or read bathtubs post
as i say not sure but nissans normally are linked into the ecu for the car as fitted at the factory

Sorry to contradict you. The OP's talking about a model around the facelift I think.

If you look at the CBC above, you'll find a picture of the dashboard layout and the radio's a part of the centre console with the display above the vents. It's not exactly something that 'slots out'. To nick it you'd need to take the centre console, so probably that's why you don't need a code.

Mine still worked after disconnecting the battery, but IIRC I had to re-load the pre-sets.

Thanks for all your help.

I believe my 2002 is the face lift model, and like yours the stereo isn't a typical rectangle shape like the stereos you get in Halfords, but wider and looks part of the dash.

Hopefully that will mean I won't need a code like yourself.

I guess only by disconnecting the battery I will know!
