On radio or car manual; there must be attached label which shows radio serial number. You must contact to opel & provide that radio serial number in order to get acivation code for your car radio. As far as i know; there is no way to work original radio without having activation code.
Not familar with your car but I had same problem many years ago with a Vauxhall Astra and did same as you, disconnected battery and re-connected, radio didn't work - but my display kept flashing for security code to be re-input, which I didn't have.
Yours could be the same if radio not worked since disconnection - solution: if you dont have code & not in any documentation you got with car, then the radio will need to be re-coded by a dealer (expensive) or enquire with local car spares shops - they normally know a cheaper source. Mine cost about £18 (5 years ago) to get re-coded & I had to remove & reinstall myself.
This is dealer, or authorized service only. In some models, they have to change the EPROM with a new code. Many of the manufactures made their radios in a way that the code is not recoverable. If the dealer can recover the code, then the thiefs may also be able to recover it!
The auto dealers in the area where I live charge about $80 to $120 for a new EPROM in their radios. The price depends on the model.
There are 3 ways you can get the radio code: 1. Reference your car manual or the Grundig's manual that came with the unit. Most times, there is a sticker on the manual with the radio code printed; 2. Call/visit the car dealer and explain your issue. You may need to show proof of ownership of the vehicle and/or the radio; 3. Use firms who specializes in this. You can try here, here or here.
If the Grundig is the original radio installed when the Vauxhall Astra was new. there are some unconfirmed reports that the radio code is also stenciled on the metal plate where the Vehicle Identification Number is.
Hope that this be of help/idea. Pls post back how things turned out or should you need additional information.
