Question about 1998 Chevrolet Malibu

2 Answers

My radio is locked with theft protection and I can't remember my pass code? Can anyone help me? We did some work on my car and had to disconnect the alternator/battery, now the theft system for the radio has engaged and I can't remember my pass code to unlock it.

I have a 99 gmc and i want to take the factory radio out but it has theft lock and i'm not sure how to get it out, got any ideas?


theft lock is an electric code that keeps the radio from working if the power is disconnected you must reprogram your code to work again if theft lock is not programed by the owner it needs no code to work if you are going to replace it with an after market radio it is mute any way

No, I can't help you, and neither can anyone else on the site-not because we don't want to, but because we're prevented from doing so. If I knew the code, the anti-theft device would be pointless.
Your code (assuming it's the OE radio) is based on your VIN. Call your local Chevy dealer, and they can help you.
