Question about 2005 Chevrolet Equinox
GM DELCO THEFTLOCK RADIO UNLOCK CODE:
1. Press and hold presets 2 and 3 for about 5 to 10 seconds until you
get 3 digits on your display. This is the first 3 of 6 digits you will
need, so write 'em down.
2. After doing step one and writing down the code, immediately press
AM/FM button to get the last 3 of the 6 numbers you'll need, and write
'em down. (if you wait too long between steps 1 and 2 and the LOC code
displays again, just start over).
3. Call this number, it's a prerecorded message, so don't worry about
having to talk to anyone...1-800-537-5140. The voice will ask if
calling for Chevy, Pontiac, Cadillac, etc... When you here him tell
to press "2" for Pontiac, press 206010 and hit the # key. He'll ask
for the 6 digit code that you've written down. Enter that and press
* key. He will then give you a code, and the option to get additional
digit codes, but one should be sufficient.
4. Follow the normal procedure in your owners manual for unlocking the
radio with your new code...press the hour set button on your radio
you get the first two numbers of the code, then press the minute set
button until you've entered the last two numbers. Immediately press
AM/FM button once the correct code is entered and the code SEC or
"secured" will be displayed on the display screen. Now, just turn the
radio on, and your ready to roll.
There is an additional step you can take to remove all codes from the
radio and start from scratch by entering your own personalized 4 digit
code so that it won't get you in a pickle again! Just repeat step 4
you should get a display screen that reads ---. This means the code is
out, and you can now program your own code. Of course, once you
the 4 digit code from the GM recorded message, just keep it in a safe
place, because you can use that same code again and again should you
have any more problems with it in the future. Good luck, and yes, it

I just tried this on a 2005 Chevy Cobalt. Could not produce any codes, but after holding buttons 2 and 3 for about twenty seconds, the radio ulocked itself and everything is back to normal. Just had to reset the clock. All the programmed stations were still in memory. - BlazerAWD

THE ABOVE PROCEDURE USED TO WORK ON OLDER GM CARS, IT DOES NOT ANYMORE. IT IS A TOTALLY DIFFERENT SYSTEM. THE ONLY WAY TO UNLOCK IS TO HAVE THE DEALER DO IT WITH THEIR SCAN TOOL. THE VIN # OF THE CAR MUST BE LEARNED, ALONG WITH SPEAKER OPTION, COUNTRY CODE, ETC.- TechJK
