Hello, if you can perform this step for me, i can get you the factory back up code!!!it will be a six digit code!!!

just post the code back to me.

  • Turn ON the ignition, with the engine OFF.
  • Press and hold the radio preset buttons 2 and 3 for approximately 8 seconds until the first 3 digits of the backup code are displayed on the radio.
  • Record the displayed code.
  • Press and hold the AM/FM push button until the second 3 digits are displayed on the radio

    first three are 725
    second three are 762
    Expert:  ZZDaryl replied 9 years ago.

    0325 is the code

    Now you can go back out to your car, press and release the "HR" (hour) button until it flashes, and enter in the first two digits of your 4-digit code. Then press the MIN (minute) button and enter the last two digits. [For instance, if my code was the number "1848", I'd press the HR button 18 times and the MIN button 48 times]. When you're done, hit AM/FM. The radio is now unlocked.
