remove the door panel, from the inside you should have access to the window. lift the window up unto the raling. Check to see if the railing is not bent or why the window came off the railing.

kevin's suggested answer is all over the internet

easiest way is to call your local GM dealership and they'll call the 800 number for you since they have a current dealership # to use for that automated service, just as M Trent stated as well

I need the radio unlock code for a 98 grand prix


The following instructions will allow you to reset any GM (General Motors), Cadillac, Oldsmobile, Buick, Pontiac theft lock radio.

Requirements: the theft lock radio must be in "LOC" mode.

Procedure:
1. Turn the ignition ON (The radio should display "LOC")
2. Hold down the Radio Presets 2 and 3 buttons for six seconds
3. The radio display changes from LOC to a three-digit number. Write this number down. You now have fifteen seconds to complete the next step.
4. Press the AM/FM button
5. The radio display changes to another three-digit number. Write this number to the right of the first one.
6. You now have a six-digit number, the first three digits are from STEP 03 and the last three digits are form STEP 05
7. Call 1-800-537-5140
8. Press 1 then # (pound). You'll hear "Invalid Code, try again"
9. Press 139010 or 106010 or 206010 or 202107 then # (pound). You will be asked to enter your four or six digit code followed by *
10. Enter the number from STEP 6 then *
11. Listen to the four-digit number and write it down. It will be repeated twice
12. Turn the ignition ON (The radio displays LOC)
13. Use the MN and HR buttons to enter the code from STEP 11
14. Press the AM/FM button. The radio display changes to "SEC". Your radio is now "un-locked" and usable.

If you fail to enter the correct code eight times, the radio goes into INOP mode. You have to wait an hour with the ignition on before the radio returns to LOC mode.

Hope this helps; keep in touch.

I have a locked radio for a 2000 pontiac grand prix thanks to a battery exchange...can anyone help ...the 6 dig code is 292298


Hello! You have done half of the work already! You can take the code, and the VIN to your vehicle; and call your local GM dealership. Tell them that you need the unlock code for the radio, and they will ask you for that information.

Also - there are 2 modes to the TheftLock - "LOC" or "SEC" and "INOP". Once the anti-theft is activated, the radio display will show "LOC" or "SEC" - you then have 8 attempts to enter your code. If after 8 attempts you don't enter the correct code, the display will change to "INOP". It is only at this time that you will need to wait one hour, with the ignition ON; before you can retry. After that - you will have only 3 attempts before the radio enters "INOP" mode again.

Hope this helps and good luck!

If I replace the delco radio in my 2003 grand am gt with another from the auto recyclers, do i have to get the dealer to clear the vin codes? I put one in and it shows locked status. I searched and found...


this is not true. all the dealer needs to due is to depress the #2 & #4 preset radio buttons to get a 6 diget code so they can call GM to get the 4 diget unlock code.
They just a bunch a money, however it does require some time even for someone that knows how to do it.

Radio locked on my 98 grand prix need unlock code


If your lucky the dealer may still have it or the code may be written down at the back pages of your manual. The other place where you can get the code would be www.radio-code.com. before you try any of that, try 0000 to unlock your radio. Good luck and hope this helps.
