I just got the code for my radio by calling 1-800-537-5140 and choosing the option for my vehicle make. 1 for chevrolet. then i entered 106010 for the customer # and then entered my serial # from the stereo and it gave me a lock code for free. Now i am just trying to figure out how to enter it since my manual tells me to take it to the dealership. Now that you have your 4 to 6 digit code, you can enter it by following the these steps. 1. Make sure your ignition is in the "on" position, but no started. 2. Press/Hold the "HR" button to set the first 2 or 3 numbers. 3. Press/Hold the "Min" button to set the next 2/3 numbers. 4. Press the AM/FM button one time. "SEC" should be displayed. You can now turn the radio on. Good luck!

i beleive those have their own door switches in latch i would try to clean latches with spray brake kleen then blow out, lube with a spray lube like wd40 that may solve your issue. while your doing this remove negative battery cable so the ecm has to recheck doors system.

Does a weak alternator cause DIC panel to be dim or out?

No. The cause of a dim or dark driver info display is a weak/broken solder connection, usually one or more resistors/rectifiers, on cluster circuit board. An electronics repair service that specializes in cluster repair can usually correct this issue and usually at a reasonable cost compared to replacement cost at you local GM dealership. Good luck.
