The code is an anti-theft device. Many cars don't have them. You will need to check your manual.

A used battery with no warranty for $100? I don't think so. I can get the Wal Mart special for $60 with an 8 year warranty, 3 of it at full replacement. I've used them in my F150 for 5 years, and WM has replaced two at no cost.
