Try this procedure, I know it works on 2000 and up:

07 Turn the ignition ON (The radio displays LOC)

02. Hold down the Radio Presets 2 and 3 buttons for six seconds

03. The radio display changes from LOC to a three-digit number. Write this number down. Don’t take forever, fifteen seconds max before the next step.

04. Press the AM/FM button

05. The radio display changes to another three-digit number. Write this number to the right of the first one.

06. You now have a six-digit number, the first three digits are from STEP 03 and the last three digits are form STEP 05

07. Call 1 800 537 5140

08. Press 1 then # (pound). You’ll hear “Invalid Code, try again”

09. Press 139010 then # (pound). You will be asked to enter your four or six digit code followed by * (start)

10. Enter the number from STEP 6 then * (star)

11. Listen to the four-digit number and write it down. It will be repeated twice

12. Turn the ignition ON (The radio displays LOC)

13. Use the MN and HR buttons to enter the code from STEP 11

14. Press the AM/FM button. The radio display changes to SEC Your radio is now “un-locked” and usable. The Theft-Deterrent feature is STILL active!

If you dont have the code, the radio has to be removed and a gm dealer can get the code.

How do I unlock a radio when it displays the word LOC on a 1997 GMC Jimmy?


It is written in your owners manual. you need a code which the original owner would have written down somewhere in the manual. If no code, no radio. Only the dealer can unlock and make new code.

I have a 1997 Chevy cavalier Radio LOC. I changed the battery this morning now the radio is LOC. Can you help?


My dealer wants $85 for the code. Another dealer - 2 hrs away - wants $50. This looks more like a GM money-maker than a security feature.

yes you do. your car has an anti theft device in it so it is something you will have to call the dealership about. it should be free so no worries! it should be in your owners manual if you still have it

You can call up the dealer and see how much it's going to cost there for the codes, but try 0000 first. If that does not work. try www.radio-code.com they can get your radio working again. Good luck and keep me posted
