my car is a vauxhall corsa ka04 reg recently purchased previous owener had misplaced the radio code and input some numbers and radio a complete lockout

Hi again..

Thank you for your reply.

Ok - . I have been personally involved with car radio coding for many many years. The only real reason the radio will lock out complete is if too many wrong code attempts have been made !

As it has locked out as you describe - then Im afraid you will need either your local Vauxhall dealer or a local car radio code specialist to unlock it electronically for you - and they can give you the correct code too.. Its pointless paying someone to get you the correct code for it now if its locked up - you can kill two birds with one stone doing as above and save money.

Now- you haven't told me whats on the display.... but - if you have the word SAFE -and a digit... 1 - 9 ... ie.. 7 etc - then you can leave the radio "powered"...and it will come out of SAFE mode - this can take several hours depending on the digit showing... but again - if its "completely" locked out - over 10 attempts as above made - then you have to do as above to sort it out.

Im very pleased to have helped you -
Im sorry this may not be the news you wanted to hear but that is what you have to do as above on this one --- Do let me know if you need anything more --
