    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 !!!163;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 !!!163;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 !!!163;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.

    Any chance one of you gurus can find me a code for the radio for my 2013 Smax?

    I pressed 1 and 6 and got these numbers:

    CS: A182A0A9
    SN: SOCD1XDVOO3639
    BL: BS7T-14D353-AA

    Many thanks indeed. I've got it wrong once and established it's not 0000 (!)

    Hello! Please may I request a code for an old Ford Sound 2000 unit, from a 1990 Sierra Ghia. Model number 2007.

    I have the following numbers:- FD 2007 J 0052425 on one label, 0173101 on the other. Powering up the unit shows - - - flashing so I guess it's looking for a 3-digit code. Thanks in advance!!

    See removal instructions here

    fitaudio.com

    or the Fiat page

    or search YouTube for a video.

    Any extractors are usually available cheap on Ebay
