My name is Gary
I am sorry for the long wait
if you follow this here can you give me the 6 digit number ?
1. Turn the ignition ON (The radio should display “LOC”)
2. Hold down the Radio Presets 2 and 3 buttons for six seconds
3. 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 button
5. 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

So if the code is 0261 I can't put that in the format I only have 3 digit option 000 so how should I put all 4 in one time
Buick Mechanic: Gary, Buick Technician replied 3 years ago
