I called dealer service dept or perhaps stopped by as car serviced someother place. They told me correct code. I think codes on stereos days from when they could be removed easy. Pre-lock on keys.

There is a code that must be entered to unlock the unit, it came with the owners manual package, if you don't have that material you will have to contact the dealer for help, each unit has a different code, these are to deter theft.

Security system 2001 holden astra


hi, I have the same problem. The central remote locking is controlled by the soriginal stereo. Thats why it has an extra section of wires than other stereos. I cut this section off and connect it back to the original stereo and the remote lock works again. but as long as you connect the rest of the wires to the new stereo, the lock lost again. Now is like nly music or the lock. I have not find a way to let both of them work. Please let me know if you do.
