Okay, you know the story - fitted a new battery - discovered i had no ics code...Serial no. BE2569W5013929 Thought i would leave the removal of the ics until the easter hols. With the aid of Doddy's brilliant definitive guide i was able to removal it in no time (although blindly searching for a button, which had fallen off the unit and into a hole around the transmission tunnel was more time consuming). I assumed (wrongly) that i had done the hard part and just needed to put the serial no. into the becker website pay 9.95 and retrieve the 4 digit code. However there are no codes available for the early units (BE2569), mine being an s reg 166. The unit resets itself after you have tried 3, four digit codes and then you have to wait an hour to try again. So i left the ignition on so i could have 3 attempts each hour with the codes i had discovered on the internet (all matching the becker 2569 ics ). Then the battery went flat and i discovered you can't open the boot with the key or with the button in the glove box; however the forum came to my rescue again and i discovered that by pushing down on the lid as i turned the key the contents of the boot were revealed. So i've now tried loads of codes and none of them work - 4444,0077,0687,7170,9102,9012,2394,9824,7237,0784, 2395,9160,5320,9278,4854,9280,7569,0165,7106,3256, 7071,7190,9076,4732,7763,4720, And i've done that thing where you press in the 2 buttons on the unit to reveal the code - but nothing. All these codes are off the forum or other sites relating to the unit BE2569. If i take a random approach to this problem and manage 6 codes per day (bearing in mind there are 10000 combinations of 4 digit numbers available) it could take me 4 1/2 years to find the right combination...any ideas?
