There is no radio code. You just turn it back on. When the car was made the radio serial number was entered in the BSI, the cars brain. So, as long as the radio is the original then it will be remembered.
The only card with a code on was to get a new key fob coded but they stopped issueing those. Now dealer or Lexia equipted garage car tell you the code
If your radio is not the original, then a beep will be heard thru the speakers IF the new head wasn't coded to the car. This does not apply to replacement NON Citroen heads. This is the deterrent to stolen heads being sold on.
