    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.

    Hello from Sydney...

    Trying to help my friend who owns 1982 Ford Laser, original stereo cassette player, made in Japan under license from Staar S.A., Bruxelles, with the model number: ABG53-66870-AA, and stamped serial number: 513832 (and then possibly a 7th digit as a small sticker with the number '6'). So no M, C, L etc, too old. I have checked the forum, one other poster had a similar stereo, but thought the model number was the serial, but I am pretty sure this is it.

    For 12 years you guys have been awesome helping out....maybe this is too big a challenge? Any help is really appreciated, the owner doesn't have two beans to rub together.

    Cheers, BuMQ

    Trackman, thanks for taking time to help me! The young car owner will be back in a couple of hours, so I will slide the cassette player back in and try the code you mentioned. This used to be the grandma's car, who passed away, and it was gifted to the granddaughter.

    The mother seems to think it was a 4 digit code? But honestly, she isn't sure, so we'll go with the 224 and then I will drop you a line if that is unsuccessful. Appreciate your time to help all of us...

    Cheers, BuMQ

    1982 Laser Update... :(
    Trackman, so the 224 code didn't work, and I found that it is likely a 4-digit code. The number display goes from 1 to 6, on three buttons, 1,2,3 on the top of the 3 buttons, and 4,5,6 on the bottom. I tried a few times to enter numbers above 3, but I couldn't - it just showed 1, 2 or 3, so I assume this number must be 4 digits and contain only the numbers 1,2,3.

    Not sure how much we want to fight to solve this one, but any help the you and the forum could give is much appreciated.

    Cheers, BuMQ

    Looking at units online I think the serial number you have is correct with the 6 digits. I don't have any other code number generators for 6 digit serials other than the one for 3 digit codes.

    I bought a programme off a guy on Ebay for £5.99 when I needed the code for mine. It works fine and now I can decode anyone elses Ford too. Anyone need a Ford stereo code? I'll tell you it for free! Just need serial number and model of stereo...

    I can only do Ford stereos. Most other makes are a nightmare

    Note FORD STEREOS ONLY

    NO PEUGEOTS, ROVERS, VOLVOS ETC.

    ONLY FORD

    FORD FORD FORD

    (did I mention I can only do Fords?)

    That isn't a correct serial number.

    You will have to get the correct serial number off the radio to find the code.

    Sometimes pressing buttons 1 and 6 or 2 and 6 together will display it.

    If not the radio will have to be removed to find it on the label on the back.

    It will be a M or V followed by six numbers.
