I need to unlock my car radio in citroen saxo, can u help?

The radio SERIAL NUMBER is required for a code
First remove the radio from the dashboard.
Then post the radio make+model plus all the letters+numbers on any labels,barcodes or stamped in the metal casing.
This information can then be used to see if a code can be calculated

Blaupunkt radio security code not working on my Holden Astra

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 ) .



note: Unfortunately not all radios can be decoded using the Serial Number 

If not then 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 
Here is a video showing how to remove your radio from the dashboard. A pair of extractors are required (available from Ebay , etc) but these can be made from 2 pieces of bent, wire coat-hanger or 4 small drills(using the blunt end) or 4 small Allen Keys or 4 small screwdrivers or 4 nails or even 4 darts.

An assistant is useful to pull the radio out whilst you are releasing the 4 securing clips

Radio only displays "Wait"

The WAIT is because wrong security codes have been entered previous.

To reset, leave SWITCHED ON....UNDISTURBED for as long as it takes to automatically reset itself.

It may take many hours (as the waiting time depends on how many wrong codes have been entered).....normally though it is only an hour or two.
