    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.

    Hi, I have a Siemens VDO but not sure which number is needed to obtain the code, hears everything on the unit:
    Siemens VDO 330886636
    No: 24 469 302
    Type: CDR 500 (E)
    2F4
    WA020329 RCD102-01

    003 0329 1984129

    any luck with this?

    It is unlikely to be available for free or cheap from anywhere on the Internet

    See your PM message for reliable options..with a guarantee

    Otherwise try your Ford Dealer or a Radio Decoding Service

    Really struggling to get my Ford Fiesta radio code. I had to disconnect the battery and now it wants the code. The garage told me they don't have it. I think the serial number is M270322 but I may have looked at the wrong one. Can anyone help

    If it does not work do not keep trying as you could lock the radio permanently.
