Question about 2000 GMC New Sierra 1500

1 Answer

Unlock the radio

My husband has a 2001 GMC Sierra. Everytime something happens with his battery, his radio locks. We have the unlock code in our other computer, but it is in the shop. How do I unlock his radio?
Thanks. The battery died in our 2000 GMC Sierra.....The stereo is locked and we cannot find a code anywhere...The previous owner doesn't have it either..It's not in the manual or behind the glove box as suggested elsewhere...Any ideas?

How do I unlock 07 gmc sierra z71 radio

Try these hacks. If they don't work, a dealership has all the codes, and there is a website that sell radio codes based on serial number.

2001 gmc sierra c3

The reason the radio won't work is because of theft deterrent stuff built in radios now where if power is unhooked from the battery, you have to enter a code to get it unlocked. I would start by looking at your owners manual to see if there is a paper or page that would give the code you need to press to unlock it. If no luck there, I would go to the nearest GM dealer and tell them what happened and they should help you out and most likely not charge you anything.

Good luck

Code to unlock the radio/CD player

Code is specific to your vehicle .. Dealers are not supposed to charge for unlocking and they should have given you the code to write down in your owners manual.

Remote control no longer opens the lock

Sounds like the button to unlock doors on the fob is worn out. You can purchase a new one or used from your local recycle yard.

Radio locked after disconnecting battery

In your manuel there is instruction to unlocking the radio and you may have the code's written in the back. If it does ask for a code try 0000 and if that does not work try logging on to
They can give you the instruction and codes you need to reset your radio. If you have a good relationship with the dealer they may be able to help you out too since they are always disconnecting and changing batteries.
Good luck and hope this helps.
