Might have to find a local indie that might know someone?

Guessing all 4 codes were duff :( i can try it again but on a disposable pc (the program decided it needed winsock editing for some reason which knackered the net on my pc until i noticed)

Nothing to lose if you ask those guys, they seemed quite friendly. My local stealer got me the code for my old M reg lx all those years ago.

You can save all the waiting.
Look at the circuit board, and you'll find a ROM chip somewhere near the middle. Near it is a fairly high-value electrolytic capacitor, responsible for the 're-entry' timing. With all power disconnected, discharge the cap, and you can try again straight away.
Sorry for the vague description - it's years since I did this, but I worked it out from scratch, so it can't be very hard!

Morning chaps

Circuit board...flux capacitor..warp drive chip.....I blow that sort of thing up as a hobby and may take out the planet with the Anti-Neutrons, so I don't go that far into stuff :)

Sticky,
Have you tried the dealer with the original reg no - or can you get someoneon the Forum to do it in France for you? That''s how my local cit parts chap did it for mine - or see Pauls post on removing the code chip and checking the number underneath
Regards?
