    B1C37D1E-FB69-4C77-8010-CA43A1B1419B. Hi guys
    I’ve bought myself a new(er) CM2, this time a 2006 with HFT which appears to be functioning just fine, apart from the fact that it’s asking for a four digit unlock code.
    The previous owner (in Aberdeen!) said that he had not managed to get the code from the bloke he had bought the car from, so I’m guessing it’ll need resetting with HDS.

    SO- my question is: Is there anyone in the midlands that could help me out?

    Or any other suggestions?

    Cheers, Simon.

    Have you got the manual, there's a system reset procedure in there that should clear the entire thing back to factory settings.

    Reset won’t work until you can unlock it unfortunately.

    Damn... I was just setting mine up on the replacement and read it in the manual the other day... Declined to set up the password option when it prompted.

    Asking again - anyone have HDS that could remove the locking code from my HFT please?

    Just a thought, have you tried the default 0000 or 1234 code that's often set by factory.

    I’ve tried them all!
    It locks out after three unsuccessful attempts, but each journey I do I try some more using the voice recognition.

    The only thing I can find is having it reset by a dealer... I wonder where it stores the password, do you have a spare BT module you can swap in and see if that works?
