Hello everyone

I recently managed to get my hands on an OEM Alfa Romeo radio for my car (looking for that retro feel whistle.gif ).

But the radio didn't come with its original instructions book, when turned on it says :security code, which i guess it means its auto-locked due to being disconnected from the battery and without the four-digit password it won't activate.

To make matters worse all the stickers from the radio are long gone and only the serial number remains which is stamped on the radio case itself.

Can anyone help me decode the radio using only its serial number or is it a lost cause? , is there maybe a hardware by-pass to activate it?

cheers

try googling for online code service. also there is whole thread on alfaowner where you post serial and guys help with code. but considering you're missing labels it could be not possible without inner intervention

This is quite easy to do - there are a lot of forums dedicated to unlocking radios. Like shpuncik said, they generally need a serial number though. But it is still possible to do it electronically by reading the EEPROM on the PCB. I have done this with a Kenwood with success. For older radios like this it should still be simple.
