car radio code

#1
battery died on my car and now my radio is asking for its code, looked through all my car manual etc and nothing in there just wondering if theres any way of getting it without having to go to the dealer and paying out my arrse for a 4 digit number.

What make of car?
The last two cars I've had to get a radio code for (Citroen and Land Rover) the dealers where very helpful.
For the Land Rover I just rang the last main dealer in the service history and they had the code on the computer. Citroen I had to pop in to the dealer but in both cases it was free.

Should've thought of that before you nicked it :)

Your main dealer should be able to help you out, just show them proof of ownership, it might cost you a tenner though.

Or take the radio out, sometimes the code is written on the body of the radio.

Or do what I did & wait for about 4 years until your car has a problem that necessitates a garage visit where they need to disconnect the battery. Hey presto! When you pick it up, the radio should be working as the garage will re-enter the code anyway.

Have a look in your servicing books it might be in there as a sticker attached to the book or loose in a folder in your glove box. Also if you have access to the stereo sometimes it is a sticker on the unit!!

failing that if you have the PDI form it should be on that
