The only place to get the code is from the dealer. You can save some money by removing the radio your self and writing down the sieral number. Write down all the numbers to be safe. Try calling the dealership first, they are not supose to give the codes out over the phone but some times they will.

The same thing happens on my 2003 Impala. I found that my dimmer switch has an intermittent failure where sometimes the dash lights go out even with the headlights on. If I wiggle the dimmer just right, the dash, radio, steering wheel, door locks, and every other light comes on (when the headlights are on). My fix was to mount my Garmin on the steering column in front of the speedometer so when the lights go out I know how fast I'm going. A replacement dimmer (or bypassing the current one and adding a resistor) should take care of it.
Did you happen to disconnect the battery for some reason? If so, all you should need to do is call the Chevy Dealer and talk to the parts department. Explain to them that you need the code to unlock your radio. They will probably ask you for the VIN number. This is what happened to me when I put the stock radio back into my Saturn. The dealer gave me the number and it worked. I hope this helps you!
You need to take radio serial # to chev dealer to get code and there's NO guarantee they can get it off that. Because when dealer actually searches for code they usually need cars' ORIGINAL VIN#.. I don't know if they can cross check by radio serial #... good luck
Unlock the radio? cal your frendly nieborhood GM dealer with the VIN and ask for the parts dept. and they'll type in the VIN and tell you the radio code. Be nice to them as they might require you to come in and prove the car is yours. Insureance card or title or registration.
These numbers are your code to unlock the radio.What you need to do is take these numbers to the dealership and they call the G.M. technical center and they give the dealership the code to unlock your radio.The only ones that can get this code is the dealership because the have to use what is called they`re dealer code number to get the unlock code.I don`t know if they will charge for this or not.When I worked at a dealership we did not charge for this service.It only takes about 5 minutes to get the unlock code.Good luck.
A module which communicates on the class 2 serial data circuit which supplies VIN information to the radio is replaced and not properly setup with the correct VIN information for that vehicle.
The only way to unlock the radio is by using a scan tool.
