'05 Matrix Stereo Security Code Location

I recently pulled a stock stereo from an '05 Matrix XRS to go back to a stock radio in my Matrix. Apparently I need a security/stereo code to make it function. I got the owner's manual while I was there, but the code isn't in there. Can anyone tell me where the code is normally located? I can go back to the junkyard and look for wherever it is if I know, but right now I have a useless radio.

Never seen a Corolla or matrix needing a code for the hu.

In the garage,

9th Gen Corolla XRS
2012 Mazda 5

True, never seen one myself but IF there is one... would be a sticker on or inside the Manual, that's at least how Honda does it.

Time for an aftermarket stereo, Matrix/Vibe are so easy to do provided is not a Vibe with Moon & Tunes Amplifier... $10 wire harness from Walmart, plus the $15 dash kit, 15-20minutes to put wiring together, 5 minutes to install and done.
