    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:

    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.

    I locked my Ford radio out, but stupid me didn't know about codes and thought it was trying to reset the time! I therefore kept punching numbers until it really locked out...

    When I contacted Ford, they said I would need to remove the radio and they'd "send it off" to be reset, but couldn't confirm how much it'd cost me. I'm talking about an 18-yr-old radio/cassette player in a car that I'm scrapping next month, so it ain't worth spending money on, but in the meantime I hate driving without music.

    Is there anything I can do???
