    Hey all,

    My sister's Corsa has a CD player in it.

    I have a Sony CDX-GT200 headunit which allows an iPod to be plugged in so she wants it installed.

    The problem is I don't have the Radio Code for the standard Vauxhall stereo thats in there at the moment (bought car 2nd hand).

    Anyone know a way of getting it, I don't want to have to buy a new stereo from Vauxhall.

    I took my car to a local garage after I got a new engine coz my radio was locked. It wasn't a specialist garage but they had a tool they could plug into the radio to get the code to unlock it. You should look around your local area for a garage that does this. Only cost me £15 and the code lasts as long as the radio does.

    Why do you need the radio code to install a new cd player?

    There is a website that will tell you, like you phone up a number quote the make, model and serial number of the stereo and they will give you the unlock code.

    Google it!

    because when I come to sell it or whatever and want to put the old one back in, then I can't.

    Whenever you do anything to a car, it should always be able to be put back to standard.

    Just take it to your nearest Vauxhall dealer, they should be able to get the code of the computer for you.

    ^^ Like Pookie said, a dealer can get the code for you but they will charge.

    Don't you have the little credit card sized 'Car Pass' card with the VIN, key number, radio code, etc. on it?

    nope, it's no-where to be seen.

    Bought it 2nd hand and private and I trang the people I got it off and they said they didn't have one.

    Going to have to ask Vauxhall how much

    Have you checked if there's a "default code"? On my Mum's car all radios were initially set to the same code, a quick Google later and she had the code for her radio .

    Yea that's understanable. I just thought that maybe you thought you had to have the code to take it out
