SOURCE: UNLOCK CODE
Here is what you do ;
1. Press and hold the 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 them down.
2. After doing step 1 and writing down the code, immediately press
AM/FM button to get the last 3 of the 6 numbers you'll need, and write
those down. (if you wait too long between steps 1 and 2 and the LOC code
displays again, you will have to 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 "1" for Chevrolet. They will ask
for the 6 digit code that you've written down. Enter that and press
* key. They will give you a code, and the option to get additional
digit codes, but 1 should be sufficient.
4. Follow the 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 you are finished.
There is another 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 you don't get locked out again. Just repeat step four
you should get a display screen that reads ---meaning the code is
out, and you can program your own code. Once you
the 4 digit code from the recorded message, store it , because you can use that same code again.
Please remember to rate this fix.

If this is the kind with 4 holes in i, then you need to get the removal tools or use 4 nails or long screwdrivers all at same time and pull out the stereo.
If you do not have the holes, then you may have the kind that requires tools to slide in sides between stereo and bracket to loosen the hold. A butterknife sometimes works for this..

If your key is worn try getting a new one cut.
The ignition lock cylinder and keys do not contain any coded electronic components. The lock cylinder housing contains the coded electronic components. Changing an ignition lock cylinder or replacing a key is a purely mechanical process which does not affect the vehicle theft deterrent system. To replace an existing key, simply cut a new key to match the existing one. If no keys are available, the lock cylinder must be changed. To change the lock cylinder, simply replace the existing lock cylinder with one of the same type.
If you are unable to operate the ignition cylinder with a new key then you will probably need to replace the cylinder and switch.Replacement of the switch involves reprogramming
The system may be programmed with or without a scan tool.
There is a way to get the cylinder out without replacing the switch but this procedure should be performed by a qualified GM technician as it involves removal of the switch and some precise drilling.
