    Just been to pick Elddis Autoquest 120 model. 2006 Reg from Discover Birtley the service has been really good and I have nothing to complain about yet? The only thing we did not check was the Radio and the battery was taking off and we have no code for the Radio:Doh:We have been back onto Discover and they are going to get back to us in the meantime can any of you lot help with the code?It is the original Radio C.D. fitted to a Peugeot 2.2 Diesel.:Doh::Doh:

    The code will be specific to your unit and will be programmed into its electronics.
    Perhaps the dealer can contact the previous owner who may have a record of it.

    The codes are unique to the radio and could take you ages to guess if you ever succeeded, the only way I know of getting the code is to go to a mobile radio repairer who can find it out electronically

    Sorry can't be of more help.

    Usually if you put the wrong code in 3 times it locks the radio and must be plugged into a computer to be unlocked so be careful as even putting in the right code once locked will not work.:Doh:

    Peugeot main dealer can access records if you have VIN although some may want to see van. Oh and they will charge lots. I think that there are loads of decoders and softwares on ebay, makes the aim of codes pointless as the low life's can can them so easily

    Discover will be able to get the code from Peugeot or Elddis. Previous owner might be a bit wary in case it's a thief trying it on.

    A similar thing happened to me some years ago with a Cavalier. The previous owner didn't want to help but the local main dealer obtained the code from Vauxhall.

    I paid a fiver on ebay for an unlock for my Ford when I'd misplaced the number - so I go to write the number in the handbook - right next to where is written :cry:

    I did have to remove the radio to get it's serial number.

    unlock code

    hi
    have a good look through all your documents that were given to you with the van.
    the code is normally written down somewhere, in the base vehicle handbook.
    good luck
