Hello and welcome to justanswer.com

 

The radio may have been changed so the code you have may not be correct. I will need the VIN, radio code, and current mileage to look it up.

Customer: replied 4 years ago.

miles: 52,782

vin: SAJEA01T43FM86780

code: 3554

Expert:  Richard replied 4 years ago.

That is the code according to your VIN so the radio was changed. You will need to pull out the radio and get me the serial number. See the pic of where the number is XXXXX in the radio chassis. To remove the radio you first need to pop off the wood grain surrounding the shifter. Then remove the cupholder and bottom piece then the cubby box inside the center console. There are two T20 torx screwxs holding that cubby inside the console. Once that is removed pop off the leather trim going around the radio/climate control. First pop up the back of it and lift up and slide it back. Then you will see the 7mm screws that hold the assembly to the dash. You will also need to remove the bottom switch pack T20 trorx screws.
