Yesterday morning I started my car up and on the display panel i noticed the time needed to be reset and also the date. I did so but I also noticed that when I turned the radio on a display that says Code _ _ _ _ _ comes up. I have tryed to contact the previous owner with no luck and I was wondering if there is anyway to find this code somewhere on the car. I have no manual either. Is there a way I can use the VIN to find it? Thank you so much.

They need the SN off the radio, and unless it's a newer one where you can hold "M" down while turning it on to get the SN - you have to pull it out of the car, which of course takes a special tool.

Once they have it out - they can look up the code on their computers.

Will the car start? Is there a beep when you attemp to start it? Have YOU started the car since you've had it?

Thank you very much for the information. I took the car to one of our local dealers where a buddy of mine works and he took care of it. I was going to attempt taking it out myself but I figured I should probably stick to mechanical things. :p

once again thank you!
