First you need to get a number code from the radio. Hit the number 2 and 3 preset buttons at the same time, after 5-10 second a 2 or 3 digit number will appear. Write down then hit the am/fm button for the 2nd half of the number. Once you have it call GM, 1-800-537-5140, when prompted hit 102107*, the automated voice will ask for the code previously gotten for the radio . (ie; 123456*) It will then give the 3 or 4 digit unlock code. Note this is for Delco radios on Chevrolets. I'm guessing there is a different prompt for radios on other GM divisions.

How do I unlock a radio when it displays the word LOC on a 1997 GMC Jimmy?


It is written in your owners manual. you need a code which the original owner would have written down somewhere in the manual. If no code, no radio. Only the dealer can unlock and make new code.

After changing the battery in my 1997 Buick Riv, the radio is stuck in LOC mode. How to munlock??


You should have used a battery saver plugged into the cig lighter before changing it out. The Dealer will have to unlock it now. They have the code it takes to do it. Lots of times car company's did this to prevent stolen stereos from working again once power was cut off. Theifs could'nt get rid of them cause they did'nt work without the code to unlock it.

My daughters 97 saturn was worked on and now the stereo says LOC and wont play anything got any suggestions?


Hi, my name is Ben. When LOC is displayed on the radio it indicates that power has been shut off to the radio. Probably disconnected the battery during servicing the vehicle. Once this happens, there is a code which must be entered using the buttons on the radio to make the radio able to work again. If you don't know the code, you will need to take the vehicle to a dealership service department and have them unlock the radio. Sorry, I can't help you more, but hopefully you have the information you need now. If you can find the code, sometimes it's written in the owner's manual, I can give you the procedure for entering it into the radio.

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!
