Ah ok sorry I cannot pull up your radio code as you have a European vin. I'm in USA. As for the transmission your shifter goes down to D only correct ?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

YES.IT DRIVES BUT IT DON,T CHANGE.

SO WHAT DO I DO ABOUT THE CODE THEN.

Expert:  Lou P replied 1 year ago.
For the code you can call a dealer Monday and give them your vin and they will be able to tell you the code. For the trans. Does the correct gear display in the dash ?
Expert:  Lou P replied 1 year ago.

Expert:  Lou P replied 1 year ago.
I cannot get a number for you my apologies. I can help with the trans issue but not with the radio code since I am in USA. I will opt out and see if another expert is in uk to assist.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

OK.

I change the trans oil but still stays in one gear.

is there a web site i can go on to get the code

Expert:  Stan replied 1 year ago.
Hello,radio code for the given vin is 22242.Non-shifting issue can be caused by aged battery. When the engine is cranked, transmission control unit can switch to emergency mode due to voltage drop. Best regards,Stan
