The enable your radio the activation code is in your vehicle owner's manual. If you do not have this code you need to go to your Vauxhall service center and get them to enter this code for you.

Your radio is semi-locked due to wrong codes being entered previously.
Leave it SWITCHED ON...UNDISTURBED and it will reset itself automatically after several hours
Then you can switch ON plus the AS Button and you should get the Beep.

This code will not be available for free from anywhere on the Internet as it is not in the available Philips database.
Main Dealer or a Decoding Service who will connect it to a computer to read/recode the code memory chip (EEPROM)

check your Serial Number again to make sure it is correct.
If it is correct , then unfortunately your code will not be available for free (or cheap) from anywhere on the Internet as this Serial Number is not in the available PHILIPS database.
It requires access to the original manufacturer`s database which is only available from your Main Dealer .(and a few of the larger Professional Radio Decode Specialists)
Otherwise try a Decoding Service or your local Car Radio / Audio Shop who will electronically "read "/ recode the memory chip (EEPROM) using a laptop and specialist software.
