Do you have the 4-6 digit scambled code? Press and hold the 1 and 2 preset buttons for about 5-10 seconds until 3 numbers appear on the radio's display. Write these numbers down. These are the first 3 digits of your vehicle's radio's identification code. After writing down the first 3 numbers of your vehicle's radio's identification code, immediately press the AM/FM button and you will see 3 more numbers appear on the radio's display. These are the last 3 digits of your vehicle's radios identification code. Write these numbers down. Let me know, thanks.
