The radio code feature of Daewoo models (sold in the US from 1998 - 2001 as Leganza, Nubira, and Lanos) is meant to be an anti-theft security feature, but unfortunately it can also present a problem to legimate owners when their car batteries have died or been replaced. When the radio is removed from the power source (or the power source is interrupted), the radio will reset itself (prevent any use) and flash "CODE" until the proper code is entered.
Each radio has a specific four-digit code, which was originally provided on a plastic card within the owner's manual kit. New owners were encouraged to remove the card and keep in a safe place outside the car (eg home). Since these cards may be lost over time (or perhaps not passed along when the car was sold used), that leaves today's owner in a tough spot.
To obtain your code... You can try calling Daewoo Motor America (the company still operates a HQ in CA for service/parts/warranty purposes); their website is still www.daewoous.com. You can also try calling your original Daewoo dealer, who hopefully still has some technical materials and personnel to help you identify your unique code. Some General Motors dealers may be able to help, as GM acquired Daewoo and still sells Daewoo-made cars in the US under their Pontiac and Chevy brands. But all methods above may be difficult for an individual detailed problem such as obtaining your unique radio code.
If all else fails, TRY THE CODES BELOW, which were the most common codes used in models during the 1998-2001 model years.
I am posting these because - although the code feature was a valuable anti-theft feature - there have been no models sold in the US since late 2001, and the radios are now undoubtly worthless to theives. At this point, the radio code feature can only be a major nusance to an owner of a still-running used Daewoo. Good luck and enjoy your car!
Usually this code is on a card in your manual sets in your glove box. If not go to www.automotiveforums.com and search: Radio Code List
So the CODE word of the day is what?
If you are looking for a specific code to unlock your radio, check your owners manual. Look in the manual under radio.

Radio codes are set at the factory and cannot be reset. If you lost the code go to your dealer and have them look it up.
I had the same problem with mine, I found a web sit with all the codes, all I did was google "codes for daewoo radio" and I found it.
Search the web. I once found the codes on the web for all the Daewoo radios. You just have to try each one until it works. code on top of radio pull out There also should be a card with the owners manual that would say the code. I have a 2000 Lanos and the code for its radio is 6361. i don't know if they use they same code for all of them but it wouldn't hurt to try I got my Lanos without a manual, and when the battery died I had to guess the code. The good news is that unlike other cars, Lanos' radio doesn't lock if you guess incorrectly. you need to try 6*6*6*6=1296 times at the most. In average it will take you about 30 minutes. My code was 1656, so it wasn't too bad to find it.
This is often a factory security setting, meant to be a theft deterant. Usually a dealer can reset it for you. There also may be a series of buttons (a code) you can push on the radio to reset it. Call your dealer or Daewoo tech support.
Contact a Daewoo dealer.
