Can you take radio out of one cadillac srx and install in different seria number srx

the radio anti theft comes into play when you disconnect the power supply for the radio. If you want to put it back into the vehicle you took it out of you will still have to enter the anti theft code to get it to work. The anti theft works for the radio and not the vehicles.

My battery died so i replaced it and now my radio won't come on. Tried holding down power button, turning on and off ignition. Still has no power. the battery was out of the car for about 4 hours.

If your radio has anti-theft system you will have to go to the dealer and get the accss code to reactivate the radio if you dont have the code already. GM vehicles with anti-theft radios will lock when power is lost to the system if the radio is not turned off prior to battery disconnect or dying.

Anti theft activated-now car won't start and radio won't work. Radio won't take radio code and car cranks but doesn't start, horn blares, and headlights flash. I don't have the other code for the anti...

to turn off the theft system, all you have to do is put the key in the door lock and lock and unlock the door, this shuts down the anti theft system,now this has nothing to do with the radio, the only way the radio would ask for the code is if it was removed or the battery unhooked,anyway try the unlocking of the door even try the passenger door, hope this helps.

Need code for radio anti-theft system.for a 2001 chevy silverado

You would need to go to a Chevy dealer to have to codes burned in to the vehicles computer. The reason why GM had done this was to deter theft of radios from their vehicles. The radio must have the VIN (vehicle identification number) burned into the chip to match the VIN on your vehicle so it will play

Unhooked radio and now car won't start

Saturn has the anti theft system built into the stock radio. I would suggest either re-installing the radio or get the aftermarket system to activiate your PATS system. (Passive Anti Theft)

If its a factory installed radio and not an aftermarket radio, only dealerships can reset the radio for you. The reason for being is dealerships needs to be sure that his or her radios are not stolen.
