Question about Vehicle Parts & Accessories
The battery was changed in our 2002 Holden Astra, and now when we try to use the radio or CD player, the display shows: CODE and we can't use either.
The manual we have says we need an extra leaflet that was apparently included within the manual, however we no longer have it. I have found out how to input the code, however I don't know the actual code.
Any help appreciated.

First make sure that the code has not been noted somewhere
within the car (underneath the ash tray, glove box , rear of sun visor etc)
To see if your code is available here for free then the radio will have to be removed from the dashboard (and if you are lucky, someone may have written the code on the casing ) .
If not then POST ANOTHER QUESTION
quoting the radio MAKE+MODEL plus ALL the LETTERS+NUMBERS on ANY LABELS ,BARCODES or STAMPED IN THE METAL CASING
Also quote the MAKE of CAR
note: Unfortunately not all radios can be decoded using the Serial Number
Otherwise try your Main Dealer ...........or take it into a Decode Service who will plug in a laptop to read/recode the memory chip (EEPROM). This takes a few minutes and shouldn`t be too expensive

Try putting your key in the ignition and turning the car on then pressing the button and it should work again! this worked for me :) good luck!
