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.

How to unlock my radio (5000 rds) lock 13 M274131


Take that code and your car's registration to your local Ford dealer's parts department. They can look up the unlock code for you. You will need to input the code to unlock your radio. Write the code down in your owners manual, so that next time this happens [any time the battery is dead or disconnected] you will have to code to unlock the radio.

Locked radio


You have to go to a chevy dealership to have them unlock the radio. They use a special code that will unlock the radio and then allows you to pick a new code. Hope this helps.

My radio is locked i just need the code for a monte carlo 97 GM delco radio


If the code is not at the back of your manual, try 0000 and if the radio locked it self from taking any more codes. Just disconnect the battery and that will reset the radio so you can re-enter the code. If 0000 did not work then log on to Radio-code.com, you can get your cod there for like $12.00 which is cheaper then the dealer and you get to know the codes as most dealer will just unlock the radio. Good luck and hope this helps, keep me posted if you have any more question.

Need radio unlock code 99 olds aurora


They are all random codes that are stored in the radio. The radio can lock it's self with possible 10.000 differant codes. You will need to take it to the dealer to have them use the gm scaner to retreive the code that is in the radio then they call the gm headquarters and those egg heads give an unlock code for the car. All of the make since?

Radio locked on my 98 grand prix need unlock code


If your lucky the dealer may still have it or the code may be written down at the back pages of your manual. The other place where you can get the code would be www.radio-code.com. before you try any of that, try 0000 to unlock your radio. Good luck and hope this helps.

Radio Unlock Code


if you bought the car new then there should be writen in the manual the code for the theft lock system on the radio. if pre-owned then it might ,might not be in there. or if you dont have one at all. go to your nearest GM dealer and have them fix it by finding the code. make sure to have them write it down for you incase this happens again.
