Hi there,

Your best bet is to go to your local Holden dealer.

They can look up the radio code from your VIN.

Don't attempt to put in the wrong code, it will go to safe mode, and is harder to get going again.

Your fee should be a one off, unless you become a member, then you have more benefits like more than one question.
