    Unhappy locked my radio but none of the codes work

    I had a voltage disconnection and my cd player became locked. There's three 4 digit codes with the radio; 2 on the unit itself and 1 with the manual. But all 3 of them don't work and i'm now on my 5th attempt! Would it be costly to get the cd player decoded at a vauxhall garage? I'm trying to think whether I should just get a brand new cd player.
    Any info would be much appreciated

    Lauren how have you attempted to punch in the code???....... The code that comes with the Owners Manual is the correct code, assuming you have the right book in the first instance.

    The code that comes with the manual isn't working, so i've taken it out and there's another two 4 digit codes written on the unit. But neither of them work so i'm thinking maybe it has been recoded for some reason.

    DONT keep tring the code or it will lock out and will have to wait hours before you can attempt again. Only few radios can be given code from serial. Most need the chip read, then the code rewrote. You can mayb get the code from main dealer or get it decoded.
