    Default Freelander 1 Radio Code

    I need to disconnect the radio from the Freelander but before I do this I wanted to make sure I had the code. I cannot see anything relating to the radio code in the hand books etc. Usually it would be hand written down or printer on a little card from the dealers etc.

    Will i be able to get it from the dealers or do i need to send off proof of ownership etc.

    When I turn the radio on it displays "Code Enabled" and then operated as normal. Is it possible to disable the code before disconnecting the radio?

    Cheers
    Lewis.

    You may well find the code on a sticker in the passenger side glove compartment.

    Failing that any dealer will find the code in seconds on their computer - all you need is the reg docs to prove ownership.

    Hi all

    Just encase anyone needs the code for your radio. I emailed 3 Land Rover dealers. 2 responded with the code and the third said i would need to call in with my V5. I did provide as much info as i could, Reg, Vin, SN from radio etc etc.

    I emailed as i do not have a dealer near by so thought id try emailing first.

    Cheers
    Lewis.

    Can anyone tell me what to press AFTER putting in the code? I have tried this several times and think I have pressed every button, knob and switch on there but the code just remains in the display. As soon as I turn it off and on it requests the code again. I was told it was the number 5 by a garage and number 6 elsewhere, but neither of these have been successful.
    Thanks for any help.

    If it's a radio/CD player, it's the RH search button to enter the code.

    If it's a radio/tape player, once you have the four digits displayed, press pre-set 1 to store the final digit.

    Hi shambolic,
    I did all that was suggested and even found the manual online - all to no avail.
    I took it to a garage that had the tools to take the unit out and found it was manufactured in 2006 (!!!) My car is a "51" plate - lol.
    Result - no matter how many times I put in the code - it is the wrong radio !!!
    I am going to take it to a LR dealer and see if they can get me the code.
    Thanks for your help and for checking up on me - thoroughly appreciated.
    Bobby

    Well, as it says earlier in this thread, approach a dealer with your chassis number/VIN and possibly proof of ID.

    I happened to contact M J Fews in Gloucestershire (as the receipt for the previous owners upgrade to a CD player was in the bundle of paperwork that came with the car) Their number is 01453 844131 and they were very helpful. The whole process cost about 10 if I remember correctly. They went away and found it and rang me with the details all within about 24 hours. Hope that helps.
