This looks like a 2000+ procedure. The newer radios must be matched with the VIN in your car. The 92-99 radios don't.

I think there was some confusion here about what year we were talking about. 91, 94, or 00? After reading this through the second time, I know it was the 91, and I thought we had a procedure for that here? Anyway, glad you got it working!
