A Plea From a Doughnut - Code Prob

[V]Guys,

Here is the problem.

1. Yesterday my Punto 60S R reg suffered a flat battery.
2. Managed to charge it up again but radio refused saying code.
3. Presume that you have to do something when power supply is interrupted.
4. what I actually did was put the red key in in the hope that it cleared the problem. It didn't, so I pushed a few of the number buttons to see if it was just looking for me to enter any code. it wasn't.
5. Now my radio shows Err no matter what I do, whether I have blue or red key in the ignition.

Please could someone help as I fear a new radio will double car's value.

Is it the standard Fiat fitted radio? They may be able to re-issue the code, I know Ford can (for a fee).
Other than that, there are many places that can do radio decoding.

Because the battery was removed, the stereo asked for the security code number.
This 4 figure number will be found on a blue card with the owners manual.
You pressed a load of numbers which the stereo will interpret as wrong codes.
After about 3 attempts the stereo will lock itself and not work.
Either you get it decoded at Fiat or a specialist decoder or buy another.

Where in London are you?
