1.) To begin, if your radio is displays LOC, then proceed to step 2. If your radio says INOP, then turn your ignition to the RUN position, and turn the radio ON. You must leave it like this for a minimum of 1 hour (not 59 minutes) to clear the INOP message. I would wait 1 1/2 hours just in case doing it too early causes the timer to start over.

2.) Turn your ignition to RUN (if not already), and your radio to OFF. Press and hold preset buttons 2 and 3 for around 5-10 seconds to obtain a scrambled version of your radio's original factory set code.


3.) Call a GM dealer with this code. Tell them you are with a local shop i.e. I am Joe with Good Year Highway Tire; Then tell them: We have a 2000 Saturn SL we just changed a battery in and the radio is now locked. My mechanic pulled the pre-code. Could you give me the code? This usally works at no charge.

Once you have the code write it down. Keep atleast 2 copies. Hope this helps!

Who would be the dealership for a saturn 2000 ls ,i bought it used and radio needs code


Saturn is a GM product, take it to any Chevy dealer and they should be able to help you. Although, if the previous owner left the car manual in the glove box then the factory unlock code should be there, unless they previous owner changed the code then the dealer will have to reset it.

Locked infinity rsd radio in 2002 chevy venture


Does the radio say "LOC" or does it read "000"? Which AC-Delco radio do you have? Are there 5 or 6 pre-set buttons for selecting a station?

Did you consult your Owners Manual? There is a procedure the dealer can do to unlock the radio, but I know how to get the unlock codes for free.

Need radio unlock code for 2000 saturn


Hello,

The best possible thing I could advise you to do would be this. Sometimes they can do it over the phone. Tell them that you are having issues with your radio being locked. Usually they can look up by your VIN number and get you your unlock code. Otherwise you will have to take it to the dealer and have them hook up their vehicle scanner (Tech-2) and they will be able to fix it. Everyone on the internet has their own secret ways about how to obtain these codes, but with it comes to GM the best way is to take it to a dealer.

Good Luck!
