not heard of the "data plate" before...have you managed to take the unit out yet to see whether the code has been written on it somewhere ?...if not you can get the code from your local dealer...

Re: Please Help

The code shouldn’t be written on the radio – sort of defeats the point really – but I suppose you might be lucky. I’ve never heard of the data plate – my radio code is on a card called the Audio/Navigation System Passport – I presume you didn’t get this with the car?

If it’s a UK car, there’s a good chance Alfa UK have got the code on their database, so you could always try them.

If not, try one of the many code-cracking companies. I believe some can sell you the code on-line if you give them the radio’s serial number (this is on the side of the unit so you need to remove it). Again, this seems to defeat the point …

Re: Please Help

if it's the original headunit from the car, a code should not be required.

but what model/brand headunit? i've seen blaupunkt, clarion, and VDO Dayton as being 'factory fitted' to australian 156's.


and what exactly is the situation? stereo removed/changed, why?
