I believe you have another problem, because the radio will keep the calibration of the radio as long as it stays in your van. it will only lock if radio is swaped with another pontiac radio. to unlock it you will need a GM tech II to recalibrate the unit.

Replaced the radio in my 2001 Pontiac Sunfire with a radio from a scrapped 2001 Grand Am. Radio says "locked". How do I get it to work?.


Because you have removed the radio from a power source it automatically goes into stolen mode making the radio useless when stolen. This mode is selected when you change the battery but in that case you would have access to the code to re-enter it. Talk with a radio tech and they may be able to say how to fix or where to go to get the code.

I changed the battery in my 2003 Montana and now my dash guages are dead. There was no short involved--only a simple battery re-placement. The radio also went into "lock".


The radio will go to lock when the battery power is disabled. They have a theftlock system installed where you have set a lock code in the radio, every time the power is removed the lock code has to be reinstalled to work ( this simulates the scenario where someone may steal your radio, therefore it is useless to them without the code). If you forgot your code, you will have to contact the dealer and get the initial radio code to reset it. Procedure is usually hitting 2-3 preset together (displays 3 digit code) then the AM button (another 3 digits) they then call Delcotronics and get factory override code. Quite common problem when code is set but most people forget their code. The dash lights however are not related to the battery replacement, I would recheck that the interior light override switch in the roof console is not set to off.

Anti-lock of radio in Pontiac Montana van


you need to remove the radio and get the id number off of the radio and call the dealer with that code and they will give you the proper one or if you know where it was originally purchased from the first owner call them and they will have it for you.
also look inside the glove box area some people write them in ther or the manul on the inside cover
