What year is your van and do you know the radio's 5 digit code?

Customer: replied 7 years ago.

The van is a 2005 and the code is 54416.

Ok, the battery must be disconnected for 5 minutes. Then reconnect it and enter the code. When it displays error e its locked from further attempts to enter the code.

How do I disconnect the battery?

Expert:  John G. replied 7 years ago.

You will need a 10 mm wrench. It may be easier for you to pull a fuse to reset it instead of removing the battery cable. Find this fuse box and open the lid.
Then find and pull out the "back up" fuse. Its a 40 pull straight up.
