The radio code for the original radio for that car is 4335.

 

If it says "CODE", you can enter it now.

 

If it says "OFF", the radio has been locked due to an incorrect code being entered three times. To unlock it, you will need to leave the key in position one with the radio on (it will say "OFF" but its actually on) for approximately 2.5 hours. After that, it will again say "CODE" and you can enter the code.

this code is incorrect. We tried it 3 times after it showed CODE. Please help.
Expert:  Andy replied 5 years ago.

Okay, that means the radio has been replaced. I will opt out and forward this to an expert who can look up the code using the serial number. Can you pull out the radio and write down all the numbers on the top of it for him and post them here? Or take a picture and upload it here?

How do you pull out the radio? It's built in.
Expert:  Andy replied 5 years ago.

There are two pop out pull tabs, one on either side of the radio. You need to push them in slightly with a coin or key and they will spring out. Then you pull them and the radio slides out.

Okay did it. Thank you, I had no idea the radio could be pulled out like that. The Serial number is: VO1860 W 3231297F.
Expert:  Andy replied 5 years ago.
Okay, I have sent this to the other expert. He is not online right now but he should be able to help you when he gets the message. His name is Enes. I apologize for the inconvenience, but the only codes I can look up are the ones for the original radio.
