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!

I have a 2000 grand prix gtp with a radio cassette...I want a radio cd player. I went to a junk yard and found a 2000 grand prix gt with a radio cd player....I bought it (the radio cd player), can i swap...


The wires will be the same. The problem is that the radio you bought may have theftlock on it. ( it would be printed on the front). If so you don't have the code for it. there is a slight chance that it will work, probably 1 in a 100. If it doesn't and the display reads LOC not LOCK, then you can take it to a dealer and they can recode it for you. Costs about 50 dollars here. Indy

Pontiac ... check with your dealer.

If you have the same system as I do ... guessing will permanently disable your radio.

Radios locked


let me see if I can re-state this. I may be able to help. Your battery died and you started the car with a jump from another car or battery charger, and now the radio is "locked". Have you every "locked" the radio before? Does the radio come on?, If you can answer these couple of questions for me we might be able to get you an answer. Thanks, Bill

I replaced the battery in my 2000 grand prix and now the radio is locked and the dealer was not able to fix. It says it's due to the anti-lock system. I don't have a code and wonder if I will have to...


you mean the security system? if your up to it, you can run a new fused wire to the hot wire on the radio....is only the radio affected? got to a wal mart or auto parts house and ask them who does their radio installation....I am sure those guys have seen this problem before..good luck to you

How do I put in a radio lock code for a 98 Pontiac Grand Prix?


The radio comes with a preassigned lock code that must be obtained from Pontiac. They will need you to follow these steps to retrieve two sets of numbers for them to call GM and obtain the assign lock code for your radio. STEP ONE: Press number 2 and number 3 simultaneously. Hold until the first set of numbers appear. Then press the AM/FM button on the radio for the last set of numbers to appear. Give those numbers to Pontiac, and they will call for the radio lock code. They will also provide you the steps to enter that code to unlock your radio.
