Visit the dealer. To save time, write the serial number down so they don't have to pull the radio. They might also have a way to retrieve a code that can be translated when they call their secret phone number. They also might require a receipt for the radio or proof of ownership.
These codes are designed to make the manufacturer money. They don't do very much to benefit the owner. Be thankful you don't have a Volkswagen. If the owner doesn't know the code for that radio, it will never play again once the battery has been disconnected or run dead. The fix is a new radio. Got'cha.
