First you need to leave the ignition and radio on for about an hour til it displays code again. I recommend we out a booster or charger on the battery so it does not run the voltage down. Your code should be 1612. If that does not work we will need to remove the radio to get the serial number.
Did you enter the code when the radio was displaying code or please wait?
Ok we will need to remove the radio and get the serial number off it. It is scribed in the radio body.
Here is how to do it if you feel up to the task. Pop off the plastic or leather shifter surround. It's just held in by pins which usually are broken off. Once that is off remove the two 7mm bolts and two 7mm nuts holding the wood grain to the console. Then lift the back of the wood rain to slide the top front down and out. Once that is removed remove the screws for the radio and climate control head. Pull the radio out and remove the connectors. Hope this helps and let me know if you need more info.
