Hello, you will need to enter your radio unlock code using these instructions.

  1. Press SEEK DOWN, SEEK UP, TUNE DOWN, or TUNE UP. The radio display should show 0000.
  2. PRESS SEEK DOWN to set the first digit.
  3. Press SEEK UP to set the second digit.
  4. Press TUNE DOWN to set the third digit.
  5. Press TUNE UP to set the fourth digit.
  6. If the code was entered correctly, the radio will display SEC (SECURE). The theft deterrent system for the radio is now active and normal operation may be resumed. If the code was entered incorrectly, the radio will display Err for 5 seconds and the LOC (LOCKED) will be displayed again. If LOC is displayed, repeat 1-6.
  7. If the correct code is not entered in 8 attempts, follow the next steps:
  8. 7.1. Turn ignition to ACC position. 7.2. Turn radio power switch OFF. 7.3. Wait one hour before repeating steps 1 through 7. If attempts to unlock the system are made before the one hour period is up, the radio will display INOP (INOPERATIVE). Continue to wait. If the ignition is not in the ACC position, power will never reset internally to allow itself to be unlocked. 7.4. After one hour, repeat steps 1-7.

A new starter was recently put in my 1999 SL2 Saturn; after leaving the shop in my car, my radio will not work; it says LOC. How do I get it to unlock?

If you have the owners manual it will be located on a sticker attached to the manual, if you do not have the manual, you will need to take it to a saturn dealer and pay to have it unlocked.

What is the code to unlock my 1997 Saturn stereo?

Radio code is specific for each and every car. It is specific like anti theft code. You can get it by providing your VIN# and registration details in authorized dealership. Nobody else can provide you. If anybody can provide you that , then there is no meaning of security for your car.

I have a 96 saturn sl2, i disconnected the battery and now the radio doesn't work is has LOC on the radio face. can you tell me the code?

Nobody can legally tell you the code. Contact any Saturn/GM dealership and have your VIN written down as a reference. It might take them a day or three to get back to you, but usually they can track the unlock code from VIN data you supply and relay that information back to you. Also, check your owner's manual - that PASSLOCK security code may have been manually written inside the cover flap, typically 4 digits. Use push buttons on the radio face to enter the code, a combination of pushing the seek/tune and scan/skip arrow keys will usually do the trick.

Outside of that - might have to let the dealership handle it for you.
