That code was listed on a sticker.....and it did not work...what are the steps ot enter the code?
Ok is the radio display showing ERR
no it is showing Codeer
If so disconnect your battery for approx 3 minutes to reset the radio and then enter the code using the preset buttons on the radio.
Ok let's try to reset it by disconnecting the battery and then re-trying the code.
how do I disconnect the battery?
Oh I thought that you had installed it yourself.......would you be more comfortable trying to pull a fuse for the radio?
I will try
Do you have a 10mm wrench or socket?
I have a wrench...not sure of the mm
Ok the battery terminals are tightened with a 10mm nut........that is the size you will need to loosen the battery cable.
Sorry, I am not mechanically inclined. would it be easier to do the fuse?
Do you have to lift the battery out?
No you do not have to lift the battery out but I think we should try the fuse instead. It will be easier on you......you will need pliers or a pair of tweezers to remove the fuse.
ok i have tweezers and pliers
Ok either will work. Let me find the location of the fuse for you.
Ok in the under hood fuse box we will need to remove fuse #9 which will be labeled as BACK UP on the bottom of the lid for the fuse box.
I will have to go out an try..Be back in a few minutes
I pulled the one red marked 10 which looked like it corresponded with the back up block
now what do I do?
Yes that would be the correct one. Did your radio reset to read CODE on the display?
I will see do I need to replace the fuse first?
No we don't need to replace the fuse.......just pull out of the fuse box for about 3 minutes to let the radio reset.
I did not mean get a new one i meant to put the same one back in the slot
Oh I am sorry......I misunderstood. Yes just put the fuse back in and turn the radio on. It should read CODE and you will then use the preset buttons to put the code in.
We are all systems Go! You are the Man!! Thanks for your patience!
No problem at all. I am glad to help.......Thank You for letting me assist you today! Please remember to rate me at Excellent Service and let me know if you ever need anymore help!
Do I need to reset the cd player as well?
No as long as power is on to the radio the CD player should operate just fine.
Thanks again and now I know what a fuse box looks like!!!
