Question about 1987 Jaguar XJ6
There are buttons on the face of the radio itself that are numbered 1
thru 5, and your car would have come from the factory with a 5 digit
radio code, if you can locate the small book that is for the radio
someone should have made a record of it on the inside cover, otherwise
there is no way of putting the code in unless you already have the 5
The radio code was supplied to the original purchaser of the car, but is frequently lost over the years. The only way to get the radio code for these early cars is to remove the radio and jot down the radio's chassis number.

Tips for a great answer:
ENTERING SECURITY CODE
Most vehicles are equipped with Heidelberg V or VI radios that are equipped with a theft protection program. When the battery has been is disconnected or if the radio has been removed, the radio will lock-up electronically and cannot be operated until the security code is entered. On the Heidelberg V, if the proper code is not entered in six attempts, the radio will lock-up permanently and cannot be repaired. On the Heidelberg VI, two incorrect attempts will lock the radio for about 1 hour.
The Heidelberg V may have a code assigned at the factory or a personal code created by the owner. The Hiedelberg VI has a code assigned at the factory and entered by the dealer during pre-delivery inspection. New radios come with the code printed on a sticker but not entered into memory. All codes are 4 digits. To code the radio:
