This just worked for me. Leave the car ignition and radio on but engine off, first position, for 2+ hours until it says code. Hold the preset 6 down while pressing the volume and power button at the same time to turn it off. Keep holding the preset 6 button. Then while still holding the preset 6, push the volume and power buttons again and that should solve the radio problem.

If the stereo has CODE written across the screen you need to enter the security code which is usually on a plastic credit card style card which is found in the owner service and manual pack. Or it may just be written somewhere in the pack.
Unfortunately in newer vehicles, they sometimes need to have the computer re-flashed IF you unhook the battery with the radio on. It's a crummy deal. The dealership will probably have to re-flash the computer. You could try turning the stereo off, then disconnect the cables on the battery for a minute, then re-connect and POSSIBLY it could reset the system and it may work again. Don't get your hopes up, this may not fix it.
If it is a factory stereo,you have to call a Saturn dealer and they will give you a code to unlock.I don't know if the automatically tell you how to do it so you may have to ask.Write it down too because it will happen every time the battery gets disconnected and sometimes it needs to be even though they aren't working on your battery.Good luck!

You just have to go to a dealer and get one, they shouldn't charge you for it. Every time the battery is unhooked the stereo will need the code again, so try and get them to give it to you and not just put it in for you.
