WDBHA29G0XA762954, what is the guarantee that this will work?
Expert:  Marty replied 1 year ago.

As long as you still have the original radio in the car it will work. You need to get the radio out of WAIT mode. Turn the key on to the first click and turn the radio on and leave both on until WAIT changes back to CODE.

I'll reply back in the morning with the radio code.

Thanks! If this works, I will definitely pay you for some additional assistance. This is an older version than I am used to working with.

Good morning, the radio code on file is 62651.

Let me know if it works.
