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.

Where is the fuel pump relay located on a 2001 holden astra 1.8

The fuel pump relay is located under the hood near the battery.
Usually in a black plastic box. There will be some fuses and other relays in as well. It should be marked fuel pump on or under the lid.
Good luck. Replace with same relay.
