Go to a Chevy dealership with your title, registration, and photo ID. They can look up the code based on the VIN of your car. They may charge you up to an hour's labor for this though, so be prepared. Unfortunately, they're the only ones who can do it.

Turned radio off then battery died, got vehicle fixed but no power to factory radio, all fuses check as good. Is there a trick to getting the radio to turn on again?


when the battery dies or is removed , the anti-theft code of the radio kicks in and the unit will not work again until a special code for that radio is reinstalled
the code could be in the user manual in the radio use section ,or there are sites on the net that may have the code for you

My battery died so i replaced it and now my radio won't come on. Tried holding down power button, turning on and off ignition. Still has no power. the battery was out of the car for about 4 hours.


If your radio has anti-theft system you will have to go to the dealer and get the accss code to reactivate the radio if you dont have the code already. GM vehicles with anti-theft radios will lock when power is lost to the system if the radio is not turned off prior to battery disconnect or dying.

I have a 1993 Honda Accord EX and the battery died and locked up the radio, I have the code to unlock, but need to know how to insert it since my radio display is not working.. Please Help...


disconnect battery and let it set for an hour , reconnect battery, it should power up, if not check your fuses, turn radio on code should come up, using your six preset radio buttons( # 1-6) type in the code and it should reset

2007 yukon xl battery dead recharged battery will not start no security light no gages work when you turn the key on. try to start the engine nothing happen like the security system shut down. can you...


We had the same issue with our 2007 Yukon Denali XL. Died on us twice after sitting for short periods of time; once we watched a DVD with the engine off and battery died within 10 minutes. The dealership kept it overnight to troubleshoot why the battery died so quickly. They said the radio was "pulling" too much from the battery. (They supposably fixed it) But again a few days later the battery died again after sitting overnight. We brought it back to the dealership and they brought in a GMC "expert" to replace the entire DVD/CD/Navigation system. They also replaced our battery with a much larger battery, similar to the ones that GMC puts in there diesel trucks. They had our Denali for 5 days, but it appears to be fixed now.
Getting it fixed correctly wasn't without headaches, but it was all covered under warranty, including the battery. And they are updating the nav w/ the new edition disc as well for no charge.
