    Car Radio Unlocking

    Car Radio Unlocking 7th Feb 05 at 7:43 AM
    Highly specific this one, but when you need it it can save a lot of money.

    Following a repair for accident damage my radio was left locked. On contacting the dealer I bought the car from I was told that they had no record of the radio code and that it would cost £25 plus VAT to get it for me (nice little earner for them this one, which I refused to pay on principle!).

    Anyway I went radioless for a few months, but had a trip to do and wanted the radio. So after a bit of a search yesterday, I found:

    http://www.dekodes.com/

    This allows you to enter your radio serial number and for a CC payment of £5.88 (this was for a Blaupunkt radio) it will immediately tell you the code. Worked very well indeed. You need to register and provide a 'company name', though I just put in 'no company'.

    The only problem I had was extracting the radio itself. In the end I found some help using a google search, but essentially there are 4 grub screws that I needed to extract using a tamper proof screwdriver bit (you can get a set of these at screwfix for £9.99, but probably an allen key would work). Removing these provides 4 holes into which you need to insert 4 small screwdrivers or similar (I used some wooden kebab sticks) whereupon you can pull the radio out by pulling carefully at the cassette slot.

    Can anyone help me to get my radio code?

    BP 334936357147
    7643349318

    Thanks in advance.



    p.s. and out of interest, how do you guys figure out the codes from this information?

    p.s. It's calculated by entering part of the part number and part of the serial number into a computer program which then calculates what the code should be.

    Hi
    If I get this right someone here will give me the radio code for a Clarion Car Radio?


    CL045910071870


    PU 2358A(C)


    Peugeot wanted to charge me £25 for this and I had to take the car in. Ebay would sell me a CD but couldn't be sure it would cover this brand of radio.


    If someone can reply with a working code for the replacement radio I'll send RNLI £10 in thanks.

Have a look to see if this style of number is on the label on the back of the unit. If not it is only possible to get the code from the main dealer or a car radio specialist.

    When you say a car radio specialist - will it need to go in person to a company like halfords or is there a company online you could suggest?

    Looking further into this model, it appears it will need a main dealer as this radio is VIN coded and electronically linked to the car. so can't be done without programming it with the cars electronics.

    can anyone help me with decoding a Vauxhall Corsa radio. It's a Siemens CDR2005(E) and what I think is the serial number (from label on radio) looks nothing like other numbers I've seen in other posts! Number is given as 330886636 and there is a second number 13 122 932.
