Hi apassehl, Try to press and hold the SEEK and SCAN buttons simultaneosly until "1000" lights up in the display. Then use the station buttons 1 to 4 to input your code. 1 to input the first digit, 2 to input the second, and so on. After the code is entered, press and hold the SEEK and SCAN buttons again until "SAFE" reappears. Hope this helps!

Thanks. I've tried that as well as removing the fuse and nothing has worked! Tonight I will try disconnecting the battery to see if that resets the radio... I'll try your method once more though and will report back with what works.

    I went out to start my car and the key will not go into the ignition. It looks like there is a small piece of plastic that should move when you put the key in but it wont. So I cant start my car.
