My car is in the Suzuki shop and they can't figure out how to enter my radio security code after my battery died over the weekend, waiting for a part. The owners manual does not give the procedure for reentering my code. Does anyone know where I can find this procedure. Need answer hopefully before tomorrow morning.
Thanks in advance for any assistance.

What head unit do you have? I've disconnected the battery many times on mine and have never had to enter any security code to get it functioning again.

Okay, I found this (it appears someone has enabled the security code feature on your unit :rolleyes:):
The anti-theft feature is intended to discourage
theft or the audio system by preventing
the system from operating when it
is moved to a different vehicle.
This feature works by allowing you to enter
a Personal Identification Number (PIN).
When the audio system is disconnected
from its power source, such as when the
audio system is removed or the battery is
disconnected, the system will not operate
again unless the PIN is reentered.
Setting the Anti-Theft Function
1) Press the VOL PUSH POWER knob
(1) to power off.
2) Press the Preset buttons (2) 1, 6 and
VOL PUSH POWER knob (1) simultaneously.
“SECURITY” is displayed.
3) Press the Up button (3) and Preset
button (2) 1 simultaneously.
4) Enter a 4-digit PIN number using the
Preset buttons (2) 1-4.
5) Hold down TUNE FOLDER PUSH
SOUND knob (4) for 1 sec. or more.
NOTE:
Write down your PIN for the future use.
Canceling the anti-theft feature
This operation is to be done when you
want to cancel the anti-theft function or
change your PIN.
1) Press the Preset buttons (2) 1, 6 and
the VOL PUSH POWER knob (1)
simultaneously.
2) Press the Up button (3) and Preset
button (2) 1 simultaneously.
3) Enter a 4-digit PIN number using the
Preset buttons (2) 1-4.
4) Hold down the TUNE FOLDER PUSH
SOUND knob (4) for 1 sec. or more.
NOTE:
To change your PIN, first delete your current
PIN, then set a new one.
Confirming Your Personal Identification
Number (PIN)
When the main power source is disconnected
such as when you exchange your
battery, etc, you will have to confirm your
PIN to be able to use the audio system.
1) Press the engine switch to change the
ignition mode to “ACC”.
2) Press the Up button (3) and Preset
button (2) 1 simultaneously.
3) Enter a 4-digit PIN number using the
Preset buttons (2) 1-4.
4) Hold down the TUNE FOLDER PUSH
SOUND knob (4) for 1 sec. or more.
If the PIN that you input matches the
registered PIN, the power of the audiosystem
will turn off, and you will be
able to operate the audio system.
NOTE:
If you input your PIN incorrectly, “ERROR”
will be displayed. If you enter an incorrect
PIN more than 10 times, “HELP” will be
displayed and you can not perform any
further operation.
Unable to operate The security function is on.
If the unit displays “SECURITY”, enter
your user ID.
If the unit displays “HELP”, consult your
dealer.
Your dealer should be able to fix it.

PS: Nobody would want to steal a Kizashi head unit! They're made by Panasonic (even the Rockford Fosgate model) - the only RF bits are the separate amplifier and speakers. ;)

Thanx David, Yes, I had entered a security code. We had the code, but the "Suzuki" shop didn't know how to enter it. The service mgr finally took time to thoroughly read the manual and finally figured it out.
Thanx again and I will definitely be bookmarking this page and my owners manual for the procedure.
