The radio is locked on a 1995 oldsmobile 88


How to Unlock a Chevy Radio Step 1: Start the vehicle and turn on the radio.
Step 2: Press and hold preset numbers 2 and 3 until a three digit code appears on the radio display. Write this code down.
Step 3: Press the AM/FM button. Your radio will display a second three digit code. Write the second code down. You will now have a six digit code.
Step 4: Call the Chevy Radio Code phone line at 1-800-537-5140.
Step 4: Enter 106010 followed by the # key to direct you to the radio code retrieval system.
Step 5: Enter the six digit code you retrieved in steps 2 and 3 followed by the * key. They must be in order. You will be given a four digit radio code. Write down the radio code.
Step 6: Start your vehicle and turn on the radio. Using the Minute and Hour buttons, enter in the four digit radio code to your stereo system. Press the AM/FM button to unlock your stereo.
How to Unlock a GM Radio Step 1: Start the vehicle and turn on the radio. The radio will display "LOC" indicating the Theftlock system is activated.
Step 2: Press and hold preset buttons 1 and 4 for ten seconds. (If you don't have a fourth preset button, press and hold presets 2 and 3.) The radio will display a three digit number. Write this number down.
Step 3: Press the AM/FM button. Your radio will display a second three digit code. Write the second code down. You will now have a six digit code.
Step 4: Contact your local GM Dealer and give them the six digit code. They will give you a four digit radio code.
Many dealers will give you your radio code for free, while others may charge a small fee. If your dealer is charging a larger fee, consider calling another dealer or doing a Google search for sites offering GMC Radio codes. They usually charge a small (around $10) fee.
Step 5: Start your vehicle and turn on the radio. Press the Hour button on the radio until the first two number of the code appear. Next, press the Minute button until the last two numbers of the code are displayed. Once all four digits appear, press the AM/FM button to unlock your stereo. The display will read "SEC" indicating you have successfully unlocked your radio and it is fully operational.
If radio display reads "INOP" while the vehicle is on, too many incorrect radio codes have been entered. To remove "INOP" from your display and unlock your radio, you must leave the key in the On position for one hour. Once you've retrieved your radio unlock code, write it down for future use. Your radio code will not change and having it handy will save from going from the radio code retrieval process again.

Whant to know how to enter code in radio change battery radio lock have code


It should be a numerical code. Just punch it in on the radio using the programmed station buttons. It won't give you any indication that you're entering the code, but when you put it in, the radio will 'unlock'

I have an 08 honda ridgeline and my battery died and i dont know the code to unlock it. any help? im pretty sure i didnt change it so its probably the factory one.


You need the code for the radio right? If so push and hold the 1 and 6 and push the power button. you will have two sets of numbers come up on the screen write these down and call your dealer. Give them the numbers and tell them you need a radio code. Then input the numbers in the radio and push the fm button.

Need radio unlock code 99 olds aurora


They are all random codes that are stored in the radio. The radio can lock it's self with possible 10.000 differant codes. You will need to take it to the dealer to have them use the gm scaner to retreive the code that is in the radio then they call the gm headquarters and those egg heads give an unlock code for the car. All of the make since?

Need radio code for 2001 mitsubishi galant battery died . replaced battery vin number is 4A3AA46G31E108241


I read on another site that if you get locked out, your radio will show OFF. All you need to do is keep your radio on for an hour. It will reset itself. Your car doe not need to be on. Not sure if this works, but it is worth a try and may save you $80!!

Radio unlock code for 1998 land rover discovery


Give the dealership your VIN# and they will in turn provide you with an 'unlock' code. Input the code and you should have radio. If not, you will need to remove the radio and give the dealer the chassis # found on the case.

Radio unlock code


try taking the unit out. there is a sticker on it with a serial number
call your dealer and tell them that you need a code " service department "
they will ask for the serial number on the radio
once you give the serial number they will look it up and give you the code
do not try to put a " random " code this will lock your radio and you will have to unlock it before putting the code in it.
if the screen shows " code " you are fine, just get the code and voile.
if your screen shows " waiting " the radio is locked up and i will assis you on that matter once you get the code.
