Hi there,

Well if the audio systems are equipped with an Anti-theft or radio code feature that requires a special "security code" to unlock your radio. If the factory car stereo is stolen from the vehicle, the radio becomes inoperable without the radio code. Operating the unit will require a "secret stereo unlock code" known only by the owner. 

A radio code is required if you have - Experienced a dead battery, Disconnected the factory radio harness or Disconnected the battery to the vehicle.

You can please follow the user manual comes with your car to get that code if the code is not in the manual then you need to contact your car dealer.
You can also get it unlock it by following the below link -

Good Luck!!

Thanks

I have a locked radio for a 2000 pontiac grand prix thanks to a battery exchange...can anyone help ...the 6 dig code is 292298


Hello! You have done half of the work already! You can take the code, and the VIN to your vehicle; and call your local GM dealership. Tell them that you need the unlock code for the radio, and they will ask you for that information.

Also - there are 2 modes to the TheftLock - "LOC" or "SEC" and "INOP". Once the anti-theft is activated, the radio display will show "LOC" or "SEC" - you then have 8 attempts to enter your code. If after 8 attempts you don't enter the correct code, the display will change to "INOP". It is only at this time that you will need to wait one hour, with the ignition ON; before you can retry. After that - you will have only 3 attempts before the radio enters "INOP" mode again.

Hope this helps and good luck!

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.
