Subject: Re: radio code


There is a third option, which I've now done twice on cars I bought that were missing the code. Brute force it. The first one didn't take long, it was 2322. The second one took a lot longer. 6361. Aaargh. I don't know how many digits are in the new ones, but the old one only had 4 digits, and they were 1-6. So, 6^4=1296. Even on the long one, I found it after a few hours on the freeway punchng in codes when there was little traffic. Ok, one can just pull the radio and take it to the dealer, but where's the challenge and triumph in that?
