    If you have the correct code... you've got this. The only problem, is when you get out of step. So if your code is 4-3-2-1 and you enter 4-4-3-2-1... the radio sees 4-4-3-2 and ejects it, then it sees 1 plus any followed attempt.

    The solution is to either:
    (A) Let it time out, where is will reset any previous entry, or
    (B) Get it back into rhythm by adding a single entry before the correct code. The radio will see the correct code in four attempts or less.

    just tried what you said by adding a 1 before code but it still didn't work pulled radio and even tried switching plugs and checked fuse all looked good it just won't unlock

    Sorry to hear this, because it's beyond any problems that I've run across. Strange that the code that's always worked is no longer working. I will watch to see someone come up with this answer.
