Locked out of your radio huh? I can help.

How can I get the seria
Expert:  Jared D replied 1 month ago.

We can try to get it from the display, but it doesn't always work on vehicles before 2001. What does the radio say right now?

Expert:  Jared D replied 1 month ago.

Turn the ignition switch to ON.

Turn ON the device and confirm that the display reads COdE. If you don’t see this message, pull the battery cable for 1 minute, and then go back to step 1.

Turn OFF the device.

Press and hold the 1 and 6 radio preset buttons, and turn ON the device.

The display toggles between two screens: U with the first 4 digits of the serial number (U2200 for example,)

And L with the last 4 digits of the serial number (L0055 for example.)

Ignore the U and L and record all 8 digits

If this doesn't work, check for a sticker on the side of the glovebox. This may be your serial number.

If there isn't a sticker with the serial number then the radio has to come out to get the serial number off of the back.
