How can I open a Roberts Sports DAB 2 radio?

Serial number is 10609273. The on-off switch has been intermittent for some time and has now failed completely. This may be due to dirt getting inside the radio so I want to open it and try to clean it. I have tried to open the case using my Fixya spudgers but it is firmly fixed at each corner and there are no screw heads or other fixings visible.

SOURCE: error code er 2

I dont want to guess a solution for this however, ERR2 represents EJECT. The description of this error is "The Eject is not available". Possibilities are, jammed mechanism or sticky eject button.

SOURCE: ABS Light And Stability controll light

The most likely root cause of the problem has been determined, and its step by step fix is also detailed if you have the skills to do that yourself. See the excellent detailed website posting by Dan Jensen on the Jag-lovers.org site forums.jag-lovers.org under avsn.php?1169101j41 . He describes what goes wrong in the $2800 ABS control electronic board, and that simply re-soldering a few heavy wires to the board will fix the trouble. But it requires some mechanical work to get that module out, and then some more work to saw the plastic case apart to get to that circuit board. - Best regards - MHH

If the dealer performed the work I would be VERY persistant in them getting your radio fixed. Talk to the Service Director.

SOURCE: trunk wont open and the back seat wont fold down on our kia optim

By switching the lever you locked the inside trunk release, you will need to put lever back. as far as the trunk you may need to remove the rear seat, pop lower part out and then remove the bolts to the top half of the seat then try to reach the lever so it will open from the inside. i've found that many of these cars with the pop lever inside have sticking trunk locks from not being used, what you do first is spary lock good,with wd40 or pb blaster then slide key in and out and try to turn this may take a whhile but it works then tumbler will free up, you just have to keep spraying inside lock and working the key.

How do i install a new radio


The process is very simple, just follow these steps and you'll be on your way to listening to your radio again. First of all don't think you need to unscrew anything. The wood panel surrounding your stereo snaps out by pulling on it or using a flat screw driver at the corners. Once you have taken the panel out, you can see that the radio is held in by 2 hooks. Push up and pull forward slightly. You don't have to pull out the entire radio because you can see the serial number on the top surface very easily. Write down the number next to where it reads s/n. Once you have the serial number, call the local dealership and give them your serial number. They will in turn give you a four digit code number that you will enter on your radio. One thing to note is that if you have entered the wrong code number 3 times, your radio would lock up and it would read "OFF". To unlock it, simply park your vehicle in a safe place and leave the radio on for about 1 hour (no engine running just click the ignition switch to operate the radio). After one hour, the radio resets and will ask you again to enter the code. start entering one number at a time using the first 4 buttons. Example, if your code is 4538, you would push button 1 four times to get to the number 4, you would push button 2 five times to get to the number five and so on.. After you have entered the correct code, push the CD button and there you have it.

My radio is out of code


Hi,

First you need the serial number of the radio and you must take the radio out of the dash to find it on a label on the case. The Ford radio serial number is a letter followed by 6 numbers e.g. M123456

Once you have the serial number go here and you will be able to get your code for £3.50. I use them all the time as I repair radios and they will even text the code direct to your phone if you prefer.

Never had a failed code from them so can confidently recommend that site.

Thanks for using FixYa.

I have a 1999 cabrio changed the battery now radio is asking for code I do not have the code what is my solution is there a default code i can try


Probably depends on the year/model of the VW. For a 1999 through 2002 Cabrio, you would need to do this: obtain the unlock code that was shipped with the vehicle. If you don't have the unlock code, your local dealership can pull the radio and look up the code with the serial number. Once you have the unlock code, then turn on the radio. You should see SAFE displayed. After about 3 secs, "0001" should appear. Use the station preset buttons 1 through 4. Preset 1 changes the first digit of the code, and preset 2 changes the second digit, etc. Enter all 4 digits of the code. After code is entered, press right side of "Seek" button for about 2 seconds, until an audible signal is heard. If you hose up and get the wrong code...will go back to SAFE displayed. You will get another chance to enter the code. After 2 failed attempts, you have to wait 1 hour again for it to unlock. So carefully enter the correct code the first time.
Volkswagen uses the radio lock feature to prevent unauthorized users of your audio system and will not allow your radio to operate without the proper unlock code.
Volkswagen began using the anti theft feature around 1990 and is still in use in most Volkswagen vehicles today!
Step 1 - Retrieve radio serial#
Your vehicle requires that you remove the radio from the vehicle in order to retrieve your radio's serial number.

Step 2 - Retrieve vehicle V.I.N #Vehicle identification number.Usually found at the bottom of drivers side window.
Step 3 - Purchase code at

http://www.radio-code.com


  • You will receive your radio unlock code, via email.

  • Approximate code retrieval time is 30 minutes to 24 hours.

To do it yourself you will need to have the radio removal keys to unlock the radio compartment .

Code is there with serial number but the radio does not accept


Make sure the numbers match. The serial number is etched into the housing of the radio-starts with S/N ###etc. If you are unsure, write down the complete S/N off the radio housing and call a dealer-they will not charge to look up a radio code-it only takes a minute. If they give you a different number, then your head unit has been replaced at some point and your current card is no good. If they give you the same number, then try one more time and press seek when done. If it still does not accept it, then there may be an internal radio problem.
