Radio Codes

Do the radios in the newer TJs (mines a 2003) have a security code that has to be entered into the radio when the battery is disconnected or goes dead?
I'm talking about the stock radio.
Thanks.

I've had my stock RBK removed from the vehicle a couple times and have had the battery disconnected as well. Never had to enter any codes.

Thanks. Mines an RBB but I think that doesn't really make any difference.
Just wanted to be sure before I pull the plug.
Thanks.

Did you have a factory sub? I was wondering if I would have to worry about incorporating that into a stereo harness if I swap out the stock headunit....

This code deal, if it is the same as for a GM product is set by the consumer. I used the last three digits on my old GM vehicle of my phone number. You have to put in the same three numbers, or it will not work. I am sure there is a workaround for it. But this is something that is set by the consumer. If you bought it from an individual, you will have to get the code. On the GM radio, there is a red light that blinked, if I remember right. I spent 99 bucks, put in Sony Xplode (nothing fancy because it's a Jeep), complete with a front aux port, and I play my Ipod through it. No more CDs!!!

Though GM wasnt the only oem that used code protected radios, I have never seen on in a Jeep, Dodge, Chrysler, or Plymouth. Others under the DC Umbrella, ie Mercedes have been known to use code protected radios.
