Hello Andy,
I need to find answer on my question .
Your company charged me $25 for nothing.
The job wasn't done yet.
I agreed to pay but I would need help first.
Expert:  Andy replied 1 year ago.

Sorry for the delay, I was commuting when you replied and had some things to take care of at home when I got home. JustAnswer is not my company- they make the charge immediately no matter what. It is only after a positive rating that a portion of the charge is credited to me.

Anyway, the radio code for the radio originally installed in the vehicle is 6621

Expert:  Andy replied 1 year ago.

If the radio says "CODE", you may enter it now. If it says "OFF", it is locked and will need to be unlocked. To do so, you need to leave the key in position one with the radio on (it will say "OFF" but it has power). After about 2.5 hours, it will unlock and say "CODE" again and you may enter the code.

Expert:  Andy replied 1 year ago.

If that code works, please provide a rating. If it does not, it means the radio has been replaced. Let me know and I will forward this to someone who can help.

Expert:  Andy replied 1 year ago.

Again, I apologize for the delay. Let me know how it goes. Thank you.

Hello,

I see you have viewed the information but not yet left a rating or followed up. Did the code work?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Hi Andy,
Code 6621 doesn't work.
Is there any other suggestions ?
Thank you.
Expert:  Andy replied 1 year ago.

The radio is unlocked, correct? It says "CODE"?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
it said "code " I put 6621 and it's got locked again.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
What else I can try? Thanks
Expert:  Andy replied 1 year ago.

Okay, that means the radio is not the one originally in the car. Sometimes when they are replaced, the code is written on the top. Are you familiar with how to slide the radio out?
