Security Code for Holden Vectra

Hi there

Bought a 2nd hand Holden Vectra 97 but the battery died & had to be replaced. Unfortunately the stereo (looks like factory fitted) is locked. Holden dealer charges $20 + for this. Anyone know how to get the code without paying for it. Tried code '0365' but did not work. 9 more tries to go.
Pls help. Many thanks

Re: Security Code for Holden Vectra

I rang my holden dealer, they say it will cost $16 and they just go on the internet to look it up. Thats what i'm doing now. They charge you to do the internet search.

All you can do is ..start at 0000 to 9999 .takes a long time ..or pay the $20.00 .if you have a code in your books and it does not work .the deck would have been changed at some time .i did change faulty units in the holden range a bit . i used to be a warranty agent for gmh .

If you replace the batteries with rechargeable NIMH batteries, the scanner might not like them, because NIMH batteries each are 1.25 volts whereas regular alkaline batteries are 1.5 volts each. Some devices have a switch or automatic sensing to change between the two battery types. It might prove beneficial to take your unit to Radio Shack and have those guys look at it. They will be happy to help. Good luck.

Are you using batteries or an AC/DC adapter? The only time I've seen the voices get distorted on my Pro 97 was when the batteries were about to die. If you're using an AC/DC adapter in some way to power yours, maybe there is something electronically wrong with your Pro 97. This is not intended to get you to throw it away.
