Re: Radio will not work Reads "CODE"
Somehow you probably triggered the anti theft in your radio.. take it to dealer they can look up your code and you should be on your way in less then 30 mins.. as long as it's not a REALLY busy dealership :D make sure to have photo ID registration and the car with the bum radio...

The anti-theft program has kicked in (usually activated by the wrong code being put in 2 times). Turn the ignition key to position 1, and turn the radio on. After 1 or 2 hours, the word code will be displayed. At this time, if you put in the correct code, the radio should work.

Your radio/nav system needs a code. Go the your dealer's parts department , give them the VIN of your car( should be free $0). Punch in the code through the car radio and your radio/nav system should work right away.
yeah the main ashtray light and stereo light fuses are normally located in the cab of the car under the dashboard you should also find that the interior light is not working as this is part of the same link. these fuse boxes can be in some obscure places such as the pillar which is only only visible while the door is open, or under the acctual dashboard.
