Hi Guys, Used your service-Radio now working! Thanks very much.. Dave Ruffles


I just wanted to say thanks for providing this awesome service. I just bought a 2002 Land Rover and the battery was dead, and the dealer didn't know the code, and no 'code cards' were in the owners manual. Land Rover wanted to charge me $110 dollars to retrieve the code, and wanted to keep my car for an hour. You guys helped me solve this problem at a fraction of their cost and in just 5 minutes! Thanks again! . Philip Walker
