Question about 1999 Oldsmobile Alero
Posted by Anonymous on
The only way I know of is to go to the dealer. it has to be the original one to the car. showing ownership they can retrieve it from GM records. Look in owners manual if you have it some times it is written down by someone that may have had the problem before.

I am a service advisor at a gm dealer. you will need to call the dealer as if you hold radio preset buttons 2 and 3 you will get three numbers, right them down. then press the am/fm button to get the other three numbers. Many "nice" service departments will step you through this. The code is called into an automatic GM phone number and inputed by phone. GM will then give them the four digit unlock code. Its inputted by pressing the hour and minute buttons until the code is shown on the display. After the code is inputted, hit the am/fm button again, turn the car off and on again and it will be unlocked.

I just got a tape unstuck myself. Everytime I would hit eject it would make a clicking noise.
Here is what I did:
First I watched these videos to remove the radio.
Then I unscrewed the bottom panel of the radio.
Unscrew the brass screws holding in the cassette player portion of the radio.
Now flip the cassette player over to see your tape, etc.
When I pressed the eject button, I noticed a little motor with a worm gear would move a a gear which moved several other gears until it eventually moved a black gear which has a little post that moves the metal arm which moves back when pushing in a tape and moves forward when ejecting a tape. But I would get a clicking sound which seemed to be due to one gear trying to move a stuck gear.
I forgot the exact details of how I managed to get the tape out, but when I did get it out I noticed when I turned on the radio, it would act like it was trying to play a tape. But when it found out it couldn't, it would try to eject but would fail once again with the gear clicking sound.
I think I tried moving the black post on the black gear that moves the arm that pushes the tape out. Eventually I got to the point where the arm was pushed forward like it should be when a tape is ejected. At that point I was able to insert and eject a tape without any problems.
