    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,

    Same problem today after Halfords replaced the battery on my wife’s 2005 Ford Focus (bought second hand without handbook).

    Any chance someone can provide the code for the stereo, code M064602?

    Thanks

    Hello,

    Please save my Dad from driving into the main dealership (40 mile round trip!!)
    They wouldn't give him over the phone after we swapped out the battery and I think it's ridiculous to ask a pensioner living rurally to drive to town and back for a 4-digit code!

    Radio is from a 2007 Polo and its code is VWZ4Z4G1282079

    VIN: WVWZZZ9NZ7D070577

    Can anyone help?

    Display safe means it hasn't been paired with the car.

    The radio is VIN coded and electronically linked to the car.

    This is a job for the main dealer or the unit will have to be taken into a radio decoding specialist.
