I thought the code for philips was in an e2prom?

Used to do it years ago, but it needed a laptop and a probe that you attached to the radio (over said e2prom)

I think grundig's can be decoded via the serial number ...

Hi, I had the same problem, there were many places charging 20 quid, but eventually I found a website with a forum were you give in the serial number and someone tells you the correct code for free. I will try to remember the address of that website....I will let you know

Sleepy - I think the answer for the Philips is quite simple and has I'm sure been given on the Frenchcarforum a number of times - as I think there is some confusion in getting the thing to take the code or something.

Quick search gives the following link - but if that's no good I suggest you search there as you will know what you have.
