Default OEM RADIO

My CD player is shot and I just purchased a replacement over EBAY....
My question is how do I change the radio out on a CAMRY LE 2003. And do I
need anti theft codes for a replacement OEM.

TIA,

Harry

You're in trouble. Unless you're in real good with the Service Manager at
your local dealer, they are VERY reluctant to hand out codes.

You can try looking on the web. There are some 'translators' that, when
you punch in the S/N or other ID# will give you the code.

Otherwise, I hope you didn't pay a lot for it...

He's the owner of the friggin' car. Either they give him the codes, or he
should do something my dad taught me long ago: Visit the service department
around 7:30 AM, when lots of customers are delivering their cars for
destruction, and make a scene so loud that the help is tempted to call the
police.

It's his car. Period. End of discussion.

It doesn't always play like that. Yeah, he can go to the service dep't but
that doesn't mean they'll give him the code.

See, the idea is, to keep the radios from being STOLEN. What are the
chances the radio he bought on E-Bay is hot?

It sure would look kinda funny, showing up for a code for a radio that's
not installed in the car...

Theory collapses in the face of loud noise. Based on your theory, nobody can
buy a new radio for a Toyota, ever. That's absurd.

Of course, ANYONE can buy a new radio for a Toyota!

Go over to the Toyota dealer and choose one!

Go ahead and call Honda and ask them to give you the code for a radio that
isn't installed in your car. Or Volkswagen. They won't do it unless the
radio is in the car, is the right model for the car, and you have to have
the registration and a driver's license. Or better yet, the title.

Why give the radio and Anti-Theft code if they're going to give it to
every JoeSpareBedroom that calls in and says, I have a radio that needs
the code? Sure thing, sir!

But, as someone else said, there may not be an anti-theft code. I don't
believe my Scion has one.

Theory? I used to sell Used Cars. We had a Honda that had had the code
cleared by having the battery disconnected for a couple weeks, and a VW
with the same problem.

In both cases, the dealers wanted me to drive the car to the dealership
WITH the title, AND my business license in order to get the code.

OK - so you walk in the the paperwork. Is that all?

Possibly not. AIUI a few car radios have to be "divorced" from
one car before they can be "married" to another: some procedure
with coding, to reduce the value of a ripped-out radio (&c). I
recall this for newer Saabs, with their internal comms network.

And some cars, like the Prius, have the radio so tightly united
with the other systems that messing about just isn't an option.
(Fortunately, one isn't tempted: the standard unit works well.)
