1. Press and hold presets 2 and 3 for about 7 seconds until you get 3 digits on your display. This is the first 3 digits you will need, so write them down.

2. Press the AM/FM button to get the last 3 of the 6 numbers you will need. You only have 5 seconds to do this. If you wait too long before pressing the AM/FM button, the display will go back to LOC. If this is the case, just start over at step 1.

3. Call 1-800-537-5140, press 2 for Pontiac, press 620529 and hit the # key. The computerized voice will ask you for your 6 digit code you have written down. Enter that and press the * key. He will then give you your unlock code, and the option to get additional codes. The first one worked for me so do not worry about the additional ones.

4. Set the code into your radio by pressing the hour set button on your radio until it corresponds with the first 2 digits of your code, then press the minute set button until the last 2 digits of your code are entered. Immediately press the AM/FM button once the correct code is entered and the code SEC or "secured" will be displayed. This part of the procedure is outlined in your owners manual.

5. If you want, you can change your code so you will not forget it, or get rid of the theftlock all together. These procedures are outlined in your owners manual, read it if you would like to change these values.

6. turn on the power to your radio and enjoy.


Hints:

- The first 3 and the last 3 digits were the same on my radio. (for example first 3 were 123 and last 3 were 123) First I thought I was doing something wrong when the display wasn't changing, but I wasn't. Just to let you know it is a possibility.

- The dealer code 620529 is an actual dealer. If GM finds out that this code was leaked to the public, they will remove it from their system. If the dealer code does not work when you phone the 1-800 number, you can search for a new dealer code on the internet somewhere. If this does happen, PM me and I will try to find one that works for you.

Unlock radio with code


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

I have a 2000 Pontiac Grand Am GT. I got it at an auction and the radio says LOC. I cant turn it on. What do i do?


LOC usually means LOCKED because wrong codes have been entered.

To reset , leave SWITCHED ON...UNDISTURBED for as long as it takes to automatically reset itself.

This can often be as long as 24 hours or more as the waiting time doubles after each wrong code.

The radio has code "LOC" on the screen, won't respond to anything I try.


The LOC stands for locked
You will need a code to get this radio to operate.
You will need to have the code entered at any GM dealership & have proof of ownership with your ID
It is a theft deterrent system installed on all radios these days since the 90's

I have a locked radio for a 2000 pontiac grand prix thanks to a battery exchange...can anyone help ...the 6 dig code is 292298


Hello! You have done half of the work already! You can take the code, and the VIN to your vehicle; and call your local GM dealership. Tell them that you need the unlock code for the radio, and they will ask you for that information.

Also - there are 2 modes to the TheftLock - "LOC" or "SEC" and "INOP". Once the anti-theft is activated, the radio display will show "LOC" or "SEC" - you then have 8 attempts to enter your code. If after 8 attempts you don't enter the correct code, the display will change to "INOP". It is only at this time that you will need to wait one hour, with the ignition ON; before you can retry. After that - you will have only 3 attempts before the radio enters "INOP" mode again.

Hope this helps and good luck!

My 2000 grand am anti theft radio is locked and I need help unlocking it


This solution is for a 1999 Grand Am SE am/fm radio with tape cassette player:
Ido not know if this works for other Grand Am products past or prior 1999.
If the lcd display of the radio indicates "LOC" if you do not see anything on the display the small light behind the display is out and you need electronics to go further. If LOC appears here is what to do:
First put the ignition key to the ACC position.
2- press the HR clock adjust button once only ; the display should read 000
3-push the HR button successively until you reach 17 on the radio displayffd4cd1.jpg 4-then press on the MN (minutes) button again until you reach the number 42
5-when the number 1742 appears on the display, press on the AM/FM button once and after on the POWER/VOL button to power up the radio.
