Hi Sir or Madam, welcome to Pearl.com. I'm acramstr. And I will be assisting you today.

what is the number on the sticker you found? The serial number can be obtained from the radio itself. by pressing preset 1 and 6 and turning the radio on.

hi again, the number i found was on the glovebox backside (have to open all the way to where you can get to cabin air filters) it is 16202 and the code does not come up when i press the 2 buttons preset 1 and 6 and turn on the radio, i am not beyond pulling the radio if needed to get the serial number (last resort tho please) my vin nuber for the car is 5j6yh28523l011389 just in case it helps. and thank you for your help.

ok. If you are Sure it is an 03 . Lets try again. Press and Hold the buttons and hold them down a second after you turn the radio on. (start with the radio off) of the screen says ERR disconnect the battery For 5 min to reset the radio.. This will give 2 sets of numbers post these back to me and I can get the code.

ok, i went ahead and pulled the radio to get the serial for it, the element is indeed an 03, bought it used a few months ago, this iswhat the sticker on the back says for serial number dcz20018585.
