Well.... my battery went POOF and now my radio will not work without a code.

Hmmm now where did I put that code??....

How does one find out the code if the code is lost???

Feeling a bit like Homer Simpson at the moment.

As previously stated, the code might be in your owner's manual. Possibly handwritten on the inside page. I did mine recently after a battery meltdown, from memory there is a six digit code that you input. If you input 3 times wrongly, then it locks you out. You have to wait around 2 hours with the ignition set to position 1, then you input the correct code (hopefully). Full instructions should be in your owner's manual, yes I know there are a lot of "shoulds" here. Hope this helps :thumbup:

Good Luck:D
