Car audio security code

I recently had to replace the battery in my 2001 model Holden Astra, which I bought three months ago from a local dealer. It came with all the books and manuals...but without the security code card for stereo system and since disconnecting the battery the stereo has been out of action. HELP! The system is a Blaupunkt 520; however more info may be required. Your help with this would be just great, pleases let me know if more details are required. Cheers, Cath

I have a 2000 holden jackaroo which has a blaupunkt 2020 audio, I had some work done recently which resulted in my stereo not working, not having the code I enquired at a holden dealer and they were more than happy to give me the code after i produced my rego papers, apparently the code is kept on computer, only thing is my code wouldn't work, so it was back to the dealer and after explaining the code wouldn't work they said I would have to book it in so they can hook their computer to the stereo, of course I will have to pay, sounds like a scam to me

Where can i get a wiring diagram for a Holden Astra 2001 model

Hi a good parts accessorie shop will possibly have either a Haynes or Gregories car manual "may" have info you require. Or possibly google manuals. Genuine manuals are only accessible by dealers on the web Dealer authorisation codes are required and tech codes are required. Manuals are constantly being updated due to mistakes or updates so Holden/Opel do not supply workshop manuals.

Radio code Holden Astra 2001

When you disconnect your battery and then reconnect it again, it disables the radio. This is an anti-theft radio protection.
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 Holden service centre and get them to enter this code for you.

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

Eurovox radio/cd stacker in 1998 Holden Astra locked

Radio lock out codes are security related to discourage theft, so they are not published on the internet, if they were what would be the point?? any thief could get the code after stealing your radio. Contact the dealer for instructions and what info u need to get your cars unique radio code. How do I know this isn’t a stolen radio? The dealer will require the serial number off the radio and proof of ownership of the car it came from.
