How to unlock Seat car radio by Seat radio code key

The first indicator that will show you that your car radio is actually locked is the message you will see on the Seat radio screen upon turning on.  This should be either “UNLOCK” or “CODE”. So, if you see one of these two messages then you should know for certain that your Seat radio is locked.

The lock is something like a safety feature that now almost all car radio devices have. It is somewhat of an anti-theft solution that has proven to be a clever one over the years.

However, we are here today not to discuss the positive aspects of the Seat radio lock activation but to discuss how to successfully unlock the radio and how to successfully apply the Seat radio unlock code.

How to enter Seat radio code

It is only natural that different car radio models would have different input method. Every car radio manufacturer chooses one of the two input methods:

  1. Using the numbers on screen or the numbers on the buttons to enter the Seat  code.
  2. Or, using the button marked as 1 to enter all the other numbers of which the Seat radio unlock code is consisted.

There is nothing much to say about the first method. It is pretty simple and straight forward and you cannot mess it up. However the second method can be somewhat tricky especially if you’re not patient enough. If your car radio’s code input uses the second methods then here’s what you need to do:

Write the Seat radio unlock code on a piece of paper.  The codes are normally made out of 4 digits. So, for the sake of practicality let’s say that your code is 1122. To enter the number 1 you should only pres once. That press will be registered as one in the car radio software. To enter the number two you should press two times. If there is a number 5 in the code then you should press the button for five consecutive times.
