It is possible that he broke the power connection to the battery
In which case the anti theft code would have been activated and you will have to have it reset before the radio will come on again
Take it to an accredited radio shop in the car and see if they can help you

Hi, I'm looking for the radio code for my second hand 2000 Holden Astra (Opel). I don't have the radio serial number but do have the VIN. It is: WOLOTGF69Y5232190. I hope you can help. Thank you.


You probably won't get this over the internet, since that would be a code for every thief in the world to steal Holden radios. You should check the paperwork that came with the vehicle for the code. It is different for each radio.
If you don't have the paperwork, you can contact the manufacturer GM and they can probably track down the code after you prove you are the owner.

The warning means the computer does not "see" the right signal from the key. Your key has a chip that prevents a thief from stealing the truck with an ordinary key or by bypassing the lock.
If you have another key try it, if not check with the dealer or a locksmith.

Gas gauge does not work factory radio reads locked and something is wrong with the oxygen flow in the gas tank........


sounds like you need to take your vehicle to a certified mechanic this possibly be in your ignition switch and as for your factory radio it proably has a built in anti theft detterant in case someone was to steal it it would be useless to the thief. your local dealer can reprogram your radio by codes from chevrolet

Lost radio code


Radio lock out codes are security related, and each code is unique to the car and the radio in that car, and that unique code was supplied with the original paper work when the car was delivered to the original owner to discourage theft, so they are not published on the internet, if they were what would be the point?? any thief could get the code after stealing your radio. Contact the dealer for instructions and what info u need to get your cars unique radio code. The dealer will require the serial number off the radio and proof of ownership of the car it came from.

Since the battery went flat radio /cd /cassette will not work.the 3 equaliser knobs flash yellow Thanks


The radio anti-theft device kicked in ... like it is supposed to. (If someone steals your radion, it won't work without the unlock code; useless to a thief).
If you have the original papaers that came with the car, the code is there.
Only a Chrysler dealer can unlock the radio ($20).... be sure they also give you the unlock code in writing... and don't keep the code in the car.

I'm sure that's the fix...

Focus radio code


You've interrupted the power to the radio and it senses you've tried to steal the radio (an antitheft function). Just above the cassette/CD door (in the face of the radio) is a teensy-weensy hole...using a paper clip, with the ignition on, press the end of the paper clip into this hole and gently PUSH...if this doesn't work, (or there isn't a hole) take it to a car stereo installer and have it looked after.
Good Luck
