Hi there,

You need the PIN code from the vehicle the radio came out of to allow it to function.

How can I get the pin
Expert:  Gary replied 6 months ago.

I would contact the junkyard first, the PIN may be in the vehicles handbook.

I would also get the VIN from that car.

Can you try that first?
