I need system reset codes for 2005 Chevy Equinox. Car is fine, radio fine, just need to reset OS to factory specs so radio will play. Has been checked by three different shops

You need to input the radio code to get it to play. Take it to the dealership parts counter and they can get it for free. It has a theft lock so if the battery is disconnected you need to input the code.

Where can i get a factory wire harness? The harness that goes from the factory radio straight to the car. For a 2006 Chevy Equinox

If some one has cut yours out, then your best bet is to get it at a junk yard. Factory harness is alot of money and will be everything in the dash.

How to unlock a radio for a 2005 chevy equinox

If the owner's manual is still with vehicle, look in the section explaining the sound system. There will be a section explaining how you can reset the radio code, as well as locking and unlocking the radio. If you choose to reset the code, write it down for safe keeping...but not in the owner's manual.

I have a 99 gmc and i want to take the factory radio out but it has theft lock and i'm not sure how to get it out, got any ideas?

theft lock is an electric code that keeps the radio from working if the power is disconnected you must reprogram your code to work again if theft lock is not programed by the owner it needs no code to work if you are going to replace it with an after market radio it is mute any way
