Question about 2000 Pontiac Grand Am GT
On the radio screen its saying locked and i can not play the radio
These radios are all RDS radios and they display "locked", not LOC. They read a VIN number from the body control module. The radio has to have a prom set using a hand scanner. There is a fix that involves finding the chip that is programmed with the original VIN # and cutting the power to it by lifting pin 8. Every time it turns on it will display CAL ERR but then it will work.
