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.

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.

Car wont stay Running,Door wont Lock-Unlock, Radio dont work and Trunk Pop don't work

It appears that you have an electrical short somewhere. If you are mechanically inclined and have hours of time and electrical knowledge, good luck! Sometimes these problems can be easily found where the wiring harness runs through the firewall from the fuse panel under the dash to the engine compartment relay box. Vibrations of the engine over time on a vehicle over 10 years old will chafe the wires over time on places where the wires lay over body frame components. Also heat and time on a cars wiring harness over a decade can damage wiring in the engine compartment or along exhaust manifold underneath. Try looking in those places for visible damage before tearing out all the interior or dash.

The radio has code "LOC" on the screen, won't respond to anything I try.

The LOC stands for locked
You will need a code to get this radio to operate.
You will need to have the code entered at any GM dealership & have proof of ownership with your ID
It is a theft deterrent system installed on all radios these days since the 90's

2001 pontiac grand am radio doesnt work and neither do turnsignals

The radio can only be unlocked at a dealership. They use your VIN to unlock it. I had to do this with a friend's car when I installed a new stereo in her '01 Grand Am. Hope this helps.
