Question about Car Audio & Video
I am trying to enter the radio code on my 2000 Opel Astra but when I press and hold the AS key and turn on the radio I don't get the option to enter the code: the display just shows SAFE. The AS key is not doing anything. Am I doing something wrong?

SOURCE: opel factory fitted radio codes
Unfortunately the majority
of SIEMENS/VDO codes (including your CDR 2005 )
will NOT be available for free (or cheap) from anywhere on the Internet as access is
required to the original factory database…which is not commercially available..
Try your Main Dealer or a Decoding Service or your local Car Radio / Audio Shop (who are normally the cheapest option) who will connect it to a laptop to read/recode the memory chip (EEPROM)
To reset from 7SAFE then LEAVE SWITCHED ON ....UNDISTURBED for as long as it takes to automatically reset itself (usually an hour or two)

Testimonial: "Thanx man... Ill take it to my nearest dealership Thank you for the quick response"
unfortunatly there is no recovery from 3 x wrong input, when this has been done there is a chip that locks out, and you cannot recover it, you can however try removing the battery for a while abou half an hour to see if it will reset so you can put the code back in this is not gaurenteed to work as some chips blow deliberatly as a security device incase the radio is stolen it makes it u/s to the person...if you have a serila and make/ modle i might be able to help with a code if you can get it back to the stage where it asks for one..hope this works
