take it to the dealer and have them charge you to take the deck out and look at the serial number and run it through their computer to give you the unlock code.

the dealer here charges about 40 for that. as its about a halfhour of labour. well thats what they charge for anyways.

I just replaced my HU.

check your manual that came with the car, there should be a card that says code, but otherwise go to the dealer

did you recently disconnect your battery? or lose power? 'cause thats what triggers it in most cases

pull the HU and write down the serial number. Take it to the dealer and they will give you the code.
