New to the forum so first off a big thanks to the moderators/contributors.
i have just bought a 1996 1.6L Expression and the radio is completely dead. I am getting a feed to the plug at the back so not a power problem. Display light unit above is fine on the time and first bit of date but the year and the right hand screen (temp?) are very faint. is this relevant or just the bulbs? I have tried turning on and pushing/holding the AS button but nothing...dead as a dodo. I don't even know when it's on but have tried both positions for long enough to find out!
Previous owners admitted they lost the radio when the battery went dead and tried a couple of times to enter the code but eventually gave up.
So cutting to the chase, is it possible the set is now blocked? Its an SC 201 but just cannot get a peep out of it. If the consensus is it's blocked how much would it cost to unblock and anywhere near East Grinstead, Sussex that does it?
Thanks in anticipation
