Kevin's suggested answer is all over the internet

easiest way is to call your local GM dealership and they'll call the 800 number for you since they have a current dealership # to use for that automated service, just as M Trent stated as well

GM DELCO THEFTLOCK RADIO UNLOCK CODE:
1. Press and hold 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 'em down.
2. After doing step one and writing down the code, immediately press
the
AM/FM button to get the last 3 of the 6 numbers you'll need, and write
'em down. (if you wait too long between steps 1 and 2 and the LOC code
displays again, just 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
you're
calling for Chevy, Pontiac, Cadillac, etc... When you here him tell
you
to press "2" for Pontiac, press 206010 and hit the # key. He'll ask
you
for the 6 digit code that you've written down. Enter that and press
the
* key. He will then give you a code, and the option to get additional
4
digit codes, but one should be sufficient.
4. Follow the normal procedure in your owners manual for unlocking the
radio with your new code...press the hour set button on your radio
until
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
the
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 your ready to roll.
There is an additional 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 it won't get you in a pickle again! Just repeat step 4
and
you should get a display screen that reads ---. This means the code is
out, and you can now program your own code. Of course, once you
receive
the 4 digit code from the GM recorded message, just keep it in a safe
place, because you can use that same code again and again should you
have any more problems with it in the future. Good luck, and yes, it
does work.

SOURCE: I've a 1997 pontiac grand prix and the radio is in

there is a card that has your radio unlock code. it would have been in the glove box in the cars' manual. the car's 12 years old, so I'm guessing you're not the original owner. if you do have the manual, the card is probably in the manual, or the original owner may have written it there.

if you can't find it the registered owner needs to take it to the dealership to get the unlock code. there is no magic number to unlock all of them.

I replaced my starter on my 2002 GMC Savannah and when I go to start the van the words LOC come up on the radio. What is wrong?


You obviously disconnected the battery, your radio has to be re-coded. Loc means the radio is locked and needs a code to re-instate, did you buy the vehicle new? If not, maybe a different radio was fitted by the previuos owner

It is written in your owners manual. you need a code which the original owner would have written down somewhere in the manual. If no code, no radio. Only the dealer can unlock and make new code.

My daughters 97 saturn was worked on and now the stereo says LOC and wont play anything got any suggestions?


Hi, my name is Ben. When LOC is displayed on the radio it indicates that power has been shut off to the radio. Probably disconnected the battery during servicing the vehicle. Once this happens, there is a code which must be entered using the buttons on the radio to make the radio able to work again. If you don't know the code, you will need to take the vehicle to a dealership service department and have them unlock the radio. Sorry, I can't help you more, but hopefully you have the information you need now. If you can find the code, sometimes it's written in the owner's manual, I can give you the procedure for entering it into the radio.

Radio display reads loc and does not work any ideas keyless entry would not stop horn so i pulled fuse put fuse back in and radio reads loc and will not play


You need to enter a radio code to reactivate your radio. When the fuse was pulled, it cut the 12 volt to the radio and the radio anti-theft came on. Try entering 0000 to unlock you radio, if your radio does not take any more entries. Disconnect the battery again for 1 min and reconnect and then you can reenter codes again, if the code is not 0000. You can go the dealer and they can reactivate your radio, but if they want a crazy amount. Log on to radio-code.com, there is a fee but it's like $24.00. good luck and keep use posted.

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 www.radio-code.com.
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.
