My name is Mike. I've been with the site for just short of two years. I volunteer to moderate postings for abuse, spam, that sort of thing. When I see a one thumb rating (the worst) it gets my attention, so I check them out.
There is a hypothetical situation I would like you to consider:
Two days ago at 3:00am, a crackhead broke into your car and stole the radio along with some paperwork he found in the glove box.
The next day he plugs it in and gets the 'code' message.
'I know', he thinks, 'I'll get the code from FixYa'! I've got the VIN from the papers I grabbed. Suckers...
He gets online and posts this:
"replaced dead battery in 2000 montero sport ltd. radio now says 'code' and isn't usable at all. need the 'code' for my unit. it is the factory model of infiniti cd player. my vin is: JA4MT41RXYP051225"
What do you do?
Now you may consider Kelly's response to your problem as not helpful or you just down rated him because it wasn't the answer you wanted to hear. The rating you gave by the way, is usually reserved for cases of abuse. It is an insult.
For reasons you have superbly demonstrated, not to many experts here provide answers that may cause the Asker to 'Shoot the messenger'.
Kelly provided the correct answer.
It was quoted verbatim from your vehicle manufacturers web site.
And without bothering to even comment, you down rate a person who 'volunteers' there time to help people.
The only abuse here is being shouldered by the person who tried to help you. Hopefully this was a mistake on your part. If so, it can be remedied.
Whether you choose to do so or not, the solution to your problem remains unchanged:
If we were ethically challenged and willing to provide ways to bypass anti-theft devices for the price of a good rating, there-by giving more value to any stolen goods, how long would it be before you really did wake up to the sound of breaking glass at 3:00am?
There is a reason the code feature is there.
There is a reason we don't provide ways around them.
There is a reason you need to contact the manufacturer.
For what it's worth.
