You need the unlock code from the manufacturer. I had a radio lock up but the company had me send it to them for them to unlock. i had to prove that i bought it and it was not stolen.

Air compressor wont kick on


I just had that same problem!!! The BCM(Body Control Module) was bad in my car.... same as yours 2001 Monte Carlo. It cost 280 for the BCM and 95 to program it. The dealer wanted 695 for the BCM and programming. My. Heated seat buttons begin to work and my reverse lights work now also.
F.Y.I turn your antitheft lock off from your radio before you take it into the shop. I'm having a helluva time trying to unlock mine since the BCM was put in. And for some reason my airbag light is on now also. Just a heads up.

Locked car radio


The stereo has "TheftLock". If the power is disconnected from the stereo, it will not turn back on without first inputting the four digit security code. This renders the stereo useless if someone steals it from your car. If you've never set a code, the factory default code will be listed in the owner's manual. If you do not have one, call your local dealer for the default code.
www.DelcoLockCode.com will get you your unlock code for you. It's only $5 so it's better than going to the dealership.

Cal err locked 2000 monte carlo


You should take it to the dealer and ask for the unlock code and the procedure for your radio for your year, make, and model car and radio combination.

You might be able to punch in the codes yourself, if they are kind enough to tell you how.

Good luck on this repair.

Unlock radio need code to lock radio mufflerman08@yahoo.com


Your '02 is too new to unlock on your own.

There are 2 types of GM Theftlock, Theftlock I and Theftlock II. The Theftlock I is found in pre 2000 vehicles, and Theftlock II is in the later models.


Theftlock I - Uses a volatile user settable code that is input through the key pad on the front of the Radio. If the power is lost (dead battery etc.) the code is gone and must be re-entered for the radio to work. But with the correct procedure the owner can unlock it.

Theftlock II - Uses an EPROM (erasable/programmable read only memory) or a PROM (the difference is you can not alter the prom once it is programmed).

In either case the code is burned in and holds even when the power is lost. With Theftlock II the radio is married to the vehicle by way of the VIN. When the vehicle is started the computer compares the number in the radio with the VIN in the body control module. If they match, the radio works, if not the radio displays LOC and you are finished, there is no easy way around it. The radio will not work until you make a trip to the dealer.


The dealer will use a TECH 2 scanner to change the VIN stored in the radio. The radio does not need to be removed (for the serial number or any other nonsense). The technician just plugs into the computer and resets the VIN in the radio.

Thank you for using Fixya and you may want to try pulling the fuse to your radio for 2 min and then reinstalling it. This may reset your radio and have the ECM recognize the radio matching VIN number to the Trailbalzer.

I am looking for the location of the body control module for a 2002 monte carlo. Can you help?


Hello t_odge1381: My name is Roger and I will help you. To locate the BCM remove the passenger side instrument panel insulator.Disconnect the negative battery cable. (NOTE, Be sure to record the radio access code so you can unlock when done) You should be able to see the BCM tucked up behind the dash panel. Will have three wire pack connectors. You can not just take a BCM from a salvage vehicle and install in your car. Whether it is new or rebuilt it has to be programed to your specific automobile.Otherwise the computer will lock it self out.So to replace it you must find someone who can program the BCM for your car. Should you need further help please just ask. Please rate the answer. This way I know it was helpful. Thank You for using Fix Ya. Roger
