    Ive just checked and 'VDO CDR 500' is what is written on the radio. There are also numbers on the back! As you can probably tell, I haven't a clue what i am talking about!!

I have just bought a vauxhall vectra sri dti. The radio is in safe mode, I have tried ignition on, depressed AS button then radio on and waited. Nothing happens still in safe mode. How can I rectify this...

Press ON and AS together...and leave SWITCHED ON..UNDISTURBED for as long as it takes to automatically reset itself.
This may take up to 11 hours as it depends on how many wrong codes have been entered previously (The waiting time doubles after each wrong code)

Lost radio code for vectra

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 ) .

Also quote the MAKE of CAR
note: Unfortunately not all radios can be decoded using the Serial Number
Otherwise 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
