Hi there Ray good evening to you
Ok I will need the serial number from the unit to generate your code
You can try pressing and holding 1&6 or 2&6 on the radio as some units have the function to display the serial number
It will look like this is m076597 or v045763
If the number doesn't come up the audio unit needs to be removed in order to access the serial number
