Wen the vehicle was bought new there should have been a card along wih the owner's manual and guarantee information with the radio code in it. The code is entered using the stereo preset buttons . On some Acura, Honda, Mitsubishi and VW you have to remove the radio from the car to get the chassis number of the radio in order to obtain the radio code from the dealer. Call your dealer and ask if they can give you the radio code if you give them the vehicle VIN number and prove your identity.
