reset radio code

I want to install a chrysler radio to my 91 lebaron. this cassette-radio is circa late 90s I quess.
it has a sticker that says: date code 2198, supplier 2677, S/N T B AA 219 8 58746, no it does NOT have the 3-letter letters telling who had made it. only a pentastar...

i got it plugged with original harness, fits with similar grey and black plugs no problem. when i put power on it asks for CODE?
main question is; can this be found somehow or reset any way?
Is there anything to be done, do i need a aftermarket radio instead? I tried search several times but no other instructions than getting the all odd and even fm-stations with set-sel-1-1-1-1-1...

i just bought the old cassette player from swap cause i dig cassettes, not cds...dont ask.

thanks for answers!

Does this radio have a separate set button? If so, use the tuner to select a station for preset. Press the set button once, then press the preset button you want to use. It is very likely that the same preset button can be used for two stations. To do this, select another station, press the set button twice, then the preset button. In other words, the preset 1 button would be stations 1 and 7, if you have 6 buttons.You would press button 1 once for station 1, and twice for station 2(preset 7.) The seek button will advance to the next station with a broadcast signal strong enough to be read, and stop there. The scan button does the same thing, but will proceed automatically to the next station in a few seconds. The seek and scan buttons may also work to skip tracks on the cassette.
For the preset, you should be able to set 12 presets in FM, and 12 in AM.

There is a listing in the black bar at the top of the page for "components." Hovering over that will open "stereos." You may find something useful there.
