    Car Radio Unlocking

    Car Radio Unlocking 7th Feb 05 at 6:43 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, after replacing the battery on my Nissan Micra, the radio is now asking for a code. Nissan wanted 115 (!) to get me the code, so I pulled out the radio myself to try to find the serial number but it looks like the serial code sticker has been removed? I found the following numbers on other parts of the back of the radio so hoping one of them can be used to get the code?

    I found the following number printed into the metal:
    86351233930

    The following numbers on a sticker attached to the wires:
    28185AX610
    5101500
    HP-3123

    And if none of these can be used for the radio code... what are my options?

    The serial number should begin with BP followed by 12 digits.
    Have a look to see if it is stamped into the metal case.

    The correct serial number is required to find the code.
