Radio code

Radio is asking for the code

I don't think I have it, will check the paperwork later

Any ideas?

Will Fiat CS be able to tell me?

You should have it Rob. I received this code on a card which is similar to a bank card...

I doubt CS will be able to tell you. I got mine with all the docs for the car and registered it with the ISR as well as the locking wheelnut code which is a good idea I reckon. If CS can't give you it you should be able to go to any service dept with proof of ownership and they should be able to help you out. It should be on a little folded card which has Alfa Romeo, Lancia and Fiat written on the outside but not everyone gets it for some crazy reason

Re: Radio code

I've just picked up and a card like that doesn't ring a bell. He hasn't signed the service book etc so wouldn't surprise me... x

Because I'm nice here are some scans of what it should look like. Mine was in a little plastic ziplock bag if that helps

Re: Radio code

I lost mine for my Grande Punto... enquired about getting it replaced and i'm sure there was a charge of about 20 IIRC... gets you all the codes and key numbers etc I think? Was a few years ago though so maybe my memory is fuddled. I declined the offer.

From what someone else said they should do it for free. Just another case of dealers trying to gouge people I guess

Re: Radio code

Rather curious this radio code thing. I drove our cinquecento today, radio on, no worries. Made a couple of stops, and after the last stop the radio decided not to play any more and asked for the code. Of course, I find I'm one of those who hasn't got a radio code card. I called the dealer who tell me I can't get the code until their warranty manager is in on Monday. Not a big deal really, but it is a bit tiresome. When I came to identify myself to the dealer I found the front page of the service book hasn't been completed either.

I don't have the card either.

When I lost the code on my Vauxhall Vectra - they charged me about 25 inc. VAT for all the codes of the car.

The little bit of plastic was treated like a car part, purchased from the parts department etc

They said they can not give the radio code out otherwise

Re: Radio code

Update to my radio bother: I phoned the dealer again, they came back with the code number in about a half hour, all sorted, no worries, so Wessex have redeemed themselves again. Mind you, it would have been better if I'd received the code card with the car!

Re: Radio code

I always write the Car Radio Codes of my cars in the back of the manual and also keep it in the address book of my mobile and PC otherwise if you have to disconnect the battery it always makes for problems. We only picked up my wife's 500 on 1 March and the car radio number was supplied by the dealer as described by other posters.
