Question about 2005 Chevrolet Silverado
No, the radios are not at all related to the vehicle they are installed in. This would have happened if you disconnected the battery long enough in the same vehicle. The radio and ECU do not have any connections between them that would allow for any reading of each other's codes. They would have to share some sort of data buss. If you want to be sure, swap one of the radios back again and try the code again. If it works then, I am wrong. But if it does not work then, you simply do not have the right code and never did.
But all you have to do is to have the code reset, by anyone who installs that brand of radio. They can't tell you what the old code was, but can tell you what they reset it to. It is supposed to be free. CarToys will probably do it.
