Default Radio Security Code

Is there a way to retrieve the security code from my factory radio before I disconnect the battery? I need to reset the check engine light (already fixed vacuum leak) but I do not have the radio code. Local dealers want to charge me to look up the code. Thanks in advance!

I think it is on a sticker on the top of the radio.

Once you pull it out it is either there or the back of it.

Welcome to the forum.

I believe we have similar radios, no stickers on the top. The only stickers I have seen are on the 6 disc radios and that was instructions for ship mode. I have pulled the battery terminals several times with the factory head unit and never had a problem when I reconnected it. The radio just needs the clock reset, and if you have pre-set radio stations you would have to re set them but thats it.

Like they said,you will just loose your pre-set radio stations.You shouldn't need a unlock code for dis-connecting the battery.Hope this helps you.
