2005 gm delco radio, cd/cassette player rds model...how to unlock

This unit was purchased on e-bay for a 2005 buick rendezvous, as stated in the ebay ad, for that model...but after installation, the face reads LOCKED. Is the fact it states RDS on the face a problem? How do I unlock the radio??

Thanks in advance for your help.

I recall having seen this problem posted by another and I think you are stuck going to the dealer (with proof that you didn't rip it out of someone else's dashboard) to get it unlocked. This is one of those things done to ding accessory thieves that often bites original owners after battery changes/failures.

I have a Buick Rendezvous and I was wondering if its possible to put and single-din stereo in this car. The cassette and cd stopped working and I would like to fix it or change it.


Yes it is possible to put a single din radio in this car. Simplest way is to go on Ebay and order a single din radio fill-in kit and a factory radio wiring plug adaptor for the vehicle. Make sure you order it for the exact year make and model to be sure you have the right installation setup.

The cd player in my 05 trailblazer keeps spitting the cd's out and saying check disk. I've tried a cleaning disk but that didn't work


Sorry to say there is no fixing this unit. GM struck a deal with Panasonic to supply CD players for their DELCO radios. Panasonic is not releasing any parts for this unit so you can either find one at a salvage yard or on ebay, craigslist, etc... They are basically a "throw-away" unit.

Radio works ok. Cassette ejects tape, won't play. Cd skips/hesitates but plays. Panasonic 6 disc changer(factory installed) will not recognize cds. It gets err 1 msg. Would replacing the battery cause...


No, replacing the battery is not your problem. Must be pure coincidence..
Tape is ejecting because the deck is faulty. Either a broken belt or a broken plastic gear assembly. CD players in this model were made by SONY and are troublesome. Rather than trying to get someone to fix it, go to your local salvage yard and see what they have. They are for sale on ebay also. They are basically "throw-away" units as SONY struck a deal with GM and GM can't supply replacement parts. PLUS... there aren't too mnay shops around that fix these units.

Will the wireing from a 2005 chev radio cassette


It will work as long as it's for a GM cd radio but as mentioned it will have to be re-programmed by the dealer.

If it's an aftermarket cd player, you'll require a separate module harness with a relay circuit for the airbags and tach information to function. Or you can purchase a re-location kit which allows you to locate your factory radio into your trunk to hold those funtions. The re-location kit is a fair bit cheaper than the module. It's stupid that GM would design a system like that but that's what you'd need.
