Hello Tomee,

Me too.

I have a 2005 corolla. I just changed my battery and somehow have ended up with HELP displayed on the radio.

Can you help me re-code it without having to pay Toyota $55.00 or more.

If you need to email me directly, it is - phillipharris@spin.net.au

Cheers

Phill.

Try pressing "tune ^ " and "1"(depending on the radio it may have a tune ^ button or a track ^ button)

I cant remember if thats for help or sec but it may work

If not im pretty sure i still have a list at work of the keys you can try

tomee, I too would be interested in the instrutions. The only way that I know of is either get the dealer code or read the code out from the head unit.

3 digit code before carrying out the procedure.

The letters SEC should be displayed on the radio.

KEY CODE LAST 3 NUMS OF YOUR VIN

1. Turn the ignition on so that only accessories are powered.

2. Hold the TUNE ^ button and the 1 button at the same time until three lines appear.

3. Using the 1 button, press until the first digit of the code appears, using the 2 button press until the second digit of the code appears, using the 3 button press until the third digit of the code appears.

4. Hold the SCAN button until SEC appears on the display and disappears.

The car audio system is now enabled. fOUND THIS IN ANOTHER SECTION HOPE IT HELPS IT DID WORK FOR ME

Does anyone have the default code or fact code for a 2002 Corolla Levin Seca Hatchback? I got HELP and can't enter my preset code - it has gone to factory default after kids messed around with it,

To get out of help code. Hold button number 1,4,6 and push the power button. It will go back to sec. But now when you press arrow/scan up and number 1 it will say code 1. And then press arrow/scan down and 1 and it will now say code 2. I don't know the codes. the Toyota guy is lying when he says need to take the whole unit out. You just need the 2 codes now but they won't give you. .. not for free anyway.!

Hi

thank you for showing me how to fix the radio after I had changed my battery. I noticed that the 3 digit code wasn't the last 3 digits of VIN and I got the code from the dealer that I had purchased . Then I followed the instructions given above by feebee62 and it worked out well.

press TUNE ^ button and number 1 button to display the screen where the codes had to be entered, after following all the above steps it worked out.

thank you

I Did the 1,4 & 6  and yes it asks for two codes which I thought was a dead end.Have a 2011 VDJ76 wagon.I happened to flatten the battery (parked at home and left lights on).So I disconnected the battery completely and charged the battery.4 or 5 hours later I hooked up the battery started the car (was grateful for just that )but lo and behold the radio fired up and was now unlocked and up and running.Possible the long discharge on the radio wipes out the lock.Took a while but saved me $65.00 :-)
