I acquired a fiat marea but the previous owner did not
the radio code. Is there some place I can contact given the
year model etc where i can get the code, or how to i go about
changing the code to get the radio to work after th battery went
flat?

Fiat dealer or car radio specialist. You will need some ID and your V5 to get the code. Depending on who you go to it may cost 20 to 30.

And very occasionally you can hit lucky and it doesn't need it at all as I discovered post-flat-battery (sans code).

Sorry. I meant after a flat battery and without having or needing a radio code. Just sounded more interesting.......

Maybe he was after the post called 'flat-battery (sans code)'.

Why else would he ask for the link - lol - I am confused now!!!

He was after that post only it wasn't a post because I meant post as in after as opposed to forum post :D. I am confusing myself here [8)]. Anyway, what I was trying to say was that my battery died, the radio died and didn't need a code to get it going again - it just rejigged itself.

I know what you meant, then I tried to work out what he thought you meant, which is why I came up with my post above [:o)]
