Expert:  Gary replied 8 months ago.
if you follow this here will it give you the 6 numbers ?1. Turn the ignition ON (The radio should display “LOC”)2. Hold down the Radio Presets 2 and 3 buttons for six seconds3. The radio display changes from LOC to a three-digit number. Write this number down. You now have fifteen seconds to complete the next step.4. Press the AM/FM button5. The radio display changes to another three-digit number. Write this number to the right of the first one.6. You now have a six-digit number, the first three digits are from STEP 03 and the last three digits are form STEP 05
