    Default Radio Issue

    Fitted a new battery and usual "SAFE" mode on CDR2005 radio. However the code with the car paperwork does not appear to work with the radio.

    After trying it a few times, the radio is now stuck on attempt no. 7.

    I have removed the radio, hoping this 2nd hand radio had the code written on the back (I know, a previous Vectra somebody had done that, worth a try). Replaced radio and still stuck on attempt 7.

    So what's the cheapest method to get a code...main stealers? Then I still need to get past attempt 7.

    Cheers

    Dont try anymore if you go to ten it will lock and is a expensive to get going again. If the code you have does not work then someone has changed to radio so a dealer will not be able to help you. Look in you area for an car parts outlet that does radio coding. They will be able to get original code or give you another or remove code so it does not need one.

    Yes, I know I could do that. The issue I also have is that it's stuck on attempt no. 7 and won't let me do anymore. I should have 10 attempts. So even if I get a code, I may not be able to enter it.

    £70 2nd hand ones going on ebay...only option by the looks of it then.

    Or...does anybody have the software and would like to help me out.....

    The only way you can proceed, is to turn the radio on, and leave it... it may be a few hours before the waiting time is done...

    only then can you retry to enter the code.

    as a point of interest, attempt 9 has a waiting time of 21 hours!!

    Hmm...so I remove the radio to get the serial number so I can contact the main stealers to get a code. Put radio back in. Now I can't even get to the attempt screen. Turn radio on, I can hear it power up, but nothing. Not even the "SAFE" screen now.

    If the radio code that came with the does not work then its not the original radio. When it get to attempt 7 you are talking hours not mins. Leve the radio on in the care for about 20 hours so to let it reset. Take the radio to a radio decoder befor you do any more damage and get another code .

    Hmm...bit more investigating and this radio model needs to be de-coded completely so need to send it off at a cost of £25. The reason it would not power up again is that part of the cable bunch at the back had come away from the rest of the cable block. Put back in however, the cable block nas now broken away and will not fit back into the radio cradle correctly so it now hangs out the dash.

    I totally give up. I know it sounds trivial but it's just one thing after another with this ****** Vectra. I feel like it's falling apart around me.

    I am going to cut my losses and sell the thing. So look for it in the for sale section going cheap.

    EDIT:.....

    I can't access the For Sale Section...not allowed. Had to post it else where in the forum.
