I think this is a security feature for the radio. Check your owner's book case and other documentation you got with your car. There should be a card with the code listed.

If you can't find it - you will have to take it back into the Studio so they can look it up and reset it. If that's the case make sure you get a new copy of the code!

Yes, look for a copy of the code with your manual or sales paperwork. If you don't have it, the radio has to be pulled out to get the serial number. Then the dealer can look it up. It takes about 45 minutes to get the radio out, pull the code, and put it back together.

If you have not replaced the battery and is still in warranty have the dealer do it, they should do it under warranty. Know problem with these batteries
