    Hi if the radio has had more than 10 attempt to enter the code the radio will lock itself out . And you need to take it to a Vauxhall Dealer to have it reset . You will need the security code for the car .
    Have you considered that someone could of changed the radio in the car .

      Vauxhall main dealers may charge silly money for this. I believe there are some on line companies who can supply radio codes , for about half the price of Vauxhall, but I dont know if they can reset one thats locked out. Always assuming you dont already have the code somewhere with the car handbook. (or if the radio is a used one they may have written the code on the body somewhere. ) You need special keys to remove the radio. A couple of quid on ebay.

      It might even work out cheaper buying a used radio complete with its code. My 2010 car has never needed a code entered when I disconnect the battery, so maybe later ones dont. Or yours is later still.. If you go for a standard CD30 radio maybe pay a bit extra for the later CD30 mp3 version which can be adapted to take an Aux socket so it can be connected to a phone .

      Or put the money towards getting something with an infotainment screen and advanced features.

        Thanks do you know how much it costs to take it to the Vauxhall’s dealer or how much it costs for the radio with aux as I already have an aux cable in my car.

              The security code is on a piece of card , credit card size. usually kept in the drivers wallet, Drivers pack . Vauxhall Dealer usually charge about £28 for the security code with proof of address and ID
