Thanks for the information, unfortunately I got this car used and the manual isn't the one that came from the factory and the previous owner never wrote any info in the manual in the car.
So, having as much "Fun" as I could handle using the P.O.S. Haynes manual I bought I have gone ahead and pulled most of the dash and console apart to get the thing out just to get the serial number so I can get the correct code. At least the dealer told me that if I have the numbers and registration I won't be charged for the code.
No wonder the labor rates to work on these cars is so damn expensive since it seems to take at least twice as long to work on these as most any other vehicle I have ever worked on.
One piece of advice to others-DON'T BUY A HAYNES MANUAL. I felt like a one legged man in butt kicking contest trying to use the manual. Biggest problem is not all the instructions are correct and some important information, like having to take apart both sides of the dash to get to some of the million or so screws that hold the console together and the fact that if your seats are not in the fully forward position you can't get to some of the screws are not even mentioned. Instead of the Haynes manual spend your money on a 6 pack.
