do you know if it is the original radio that came with the car? if it is then all you need to do is go to a dealer and get a "VMI" and on that will be the code. My dealer doesn't charge you just to do this. they might even be able to give it to you over the phone, all they need from you is the VIN #. If the radio has been replaced they might charge you to pull out the radio and get the serial number off it and look up the code.

Thanks! I called the dealer and they supplied me with the code. However, when I entered the code, it still wasn't working. If it was the right code, should the radio have turned on automatically? Once I entered it, the numbers just kept blinking... Or, I'm assuming this is not the original radio in my car. Maybe I have to take the radio out to get the serial #??

After entering the radio code numbers you need to press another button, i.e scan, search or seek, depending on what radio model you have.

I want to replace the aftermarket radio in my 94 E420 with the original. The aftermarket has all of these extra wires attached to the original wires and I'm confused. All of the original parts are there. Any help on how to accomplish this?
