Question about 1989 Pontiac Bonneville

2 Answers

Just got my daughters starter replaced in her 89 Bonneville. When it came back the radio did not work. It has "Loc" on the display of the radio. I think it may be an anti-theft lock on the radio. How do I get past that?

Take it to a reputable car audio shop. They can reprogram it and show you how to do it if it happens again. You could do it yourself if you had access to the stereo's owner's manual. Or you may be able to contact the tech dept of the stereo maker and they may be able to give you instructions.

I replaced my starter on my 2002 GMC Savannah and when I go to start the van the words LOC come up on the radio. What is wrong?


You obviously disconnected the battery, your radio has to be re-coded. Loc means the radio is locked and needs a code to re-instate, did you buy the vehicle new? If not, maybe a different radio was fitted by the previuos owner

Radio displays LOC


Your radio is in lock mode. You need to look in your manual, and find your radio code, and the procedure to put it in.
You may have to call a dealership to get the code, or even go as far as taking the radio out. Sometimes they supply a card in the vehicle with the code, some are in the manual, some are on the back of the radio itself, and some are a dealer only thing where they plug your radio in to their equipment to unlock it.

My daughters 97 saturn was worked on and now the stereo says LOC and wont play anything got any suggestions?


Hi, my name is Ben. When LOC is displayed on the radio it indicates that power has been shut off to the radio. Probably disconnected the battery during servicing the vehicle. Once this happens, there is a code which must be entered using the buttons on the radio to make the radio able to work again. If you don't know the code, you will need to take the vehicle to a dealership service department and have them unlock the radio. Sorry, I can't help you more, but hopefully you have the information you need now. If you can find the code, sometimes it's written in the owner's manual, I can give you the procedure for entering it into the radio.

Radio is locked and hasn't been programmed


Go to the dealer and explain what happened. He should be able to sort the problem. (I would expect to pay).

I have a 1991 pontiac bonneville. My radio displays loc because the batery recently died. The batery is OK now but the radio will not turn on and I was told I need a loc code or factory backup code. Please...


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

Factory stereo


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

You can drive to the dealer and have them help you enter the code since they are alway's connecting and disconnecting battery's, The instructions are in the manual and the codes might be written in the front or back page. If no codes were programed try 0000 and see if that works. IF the dealer wants to charge you a crazy amount, you can get your codes here on www.radio-code.com Good luck and hope this helps.
