    Default Radio Codes

    Apologies if this isn't the right area as this is my first thread.
    I have just had to buy a new battery for my 2001 Vectra diesel and my radio is locked.
    Can anyone tell me (a) how do I get the radio out without having to buy keys, (b) where would i find the unlock code so that I can use my radio again. My radio is a Delco CDR500. Thanks in advance

    The radio code should be with the vehicle handbook pack, and is either on a red card with 'radio pass' on it, or on the grey 'car pass' card under 'radio code'.

    If don't have either of these cards, then you can go to Vauxhall and order a new car pass (which you will also need if you want to program any new keys to the cars immobiliser), which costs about £20. Be aware that the radio code they provide will only be the one for when the car was new. If the radio has been changed in the past, then the code will be different. You need to supply the serial number off the side of the radio to ensure you get the right code back from Vauxhall.

    The radio can be removed by using a couple of bits of coathanger bent into a U shape to fit into the two holes on each side of the radio. The proper keys are available from Halfords or most auto factors for a couple of pounds, and are much easier to use.

    If you dont have the CarPass it might be worth contacting the previous owner to see if they have it, could save £20, didn't work for me though I had to pay £23. Maybe also worth seeing if its been written on the stereo as it was on my sisters astra.

    I used a guy on Ebay to recover the code. Seems it's based on the long serial number on the radio. He emailed it to me within a few hours and it worked fine.
