Many of the items in the car are all security coded together. Your car pass holds details of the security code for your car.
The problem is that a lot of buyers and sellers don’t realise this. This can lead to people purchasing replacement / upgraded parts which are still coded to the original vehicle. Unfortunately this renders the items useless, unless the item is decoded.
I have written my own software ( Pecky’s Vauxhall Decoder ) to tell me the original security code after I have read the contents of the eeprom. Once I have the code, I just use Tech2 to reset the item. Other decoders edit the eeprom contents using generic files which may not be fully compatible.
I can currently deocde the following radios & displays:
CD30 – Blaupunkt
CD30 – Grundig
CD30 MP3 – Blaupunkt
CD30 MP3 – Grundig
CDC40 – Grundig
CDC40 – Blaupunkt
CD60 – Grundig
CD70 – Siemens VDO
3 Line (BID) display.
Graphical Info Display (GID)
Colour Info Display (CID)
Bluetooth Module UHP4

I can also decode these other modules:
Speedo dials / clocks.
