The radio is flashed with the serial number of your truck to operate. If change the replacement radio will have to be flashed as well. Chevy dealers do just that

I HAVE A PROBLEM WITH TOYOTA GLI6 ECU BOX.I SWAPPED THE ENGINGES NOW MY PROBLEM IS THE ECU WIRING,I WANT TO KNOW HOW MY IM GOING TO CONNECT THE ECU WIRES TO THE OLD TOYOTA GL.


Different engine means a different ECU and a different wiring harness from the original in the car not to mention other items. (Never a good idea to try and fit a different engine from the original given the complex electronics). You need to plan the feasibility of these kinds of engine swaps before you decide on doing it. You will now need to employ a professional to work out the wiring but you might have a problem finding a competent mechanic willing to take on the task which will be complex and time consuming.

Need instructions to Unlock the LOC on my 05 silverado radio


The dealership is the only place that I know of that can unlock the radio. Unless you find a "use to be" mechanic with the procedure to unlock it. Installing the radio, research goolge, i have seen a website with info for doing that. I dont remember what the site name is, sorry.

Swap radio but it is locked


Hello I see you have swapped a radio from a 05 trailblazer to an 01 Impala. Gm has pretty much made it impossible to do any kind of radio replacement. Even though the two radios may look alike each one has been programmed to a certain vehicle. This is part of the anti-theft, in most cases if a radio is programmed to one vehicle it cannot be reprogrammed to another.

Radio locked


I had the same problem with my 1999 Sonoma. try this:
(You must be in your truck with a cell phone handy)

01. Turn the ignition ON (The radio displays LOC)

02. Hold down the Radio Presets 2 and 3 buttons for six seconds

03. The radio display changes from LOC to a three-digit number. Write this number down. Don’t take forever, fifteen seconds max before the next step.

04. Press the AM/FM button

05. The radio display changes to another three-digit number. Write this number to the right of the first one.

06. You now have a six-digit number, the first three digits are from STEP 03 and the last three digits are form STEP 05

07. Call 1 800 537 5140

08. Press 1 then # (pound). You’ll hear “Invalid Code, try again”

09. Press 139010 then # (pound). You will be asked to enter your four or six digit code followed by * (start)

10. Enter the number from STEP 6 then * (star)

11. Listen to the four-digit number and write it down. It will be repeated twice

12. Turn the ignition ON (The radio displays LOC)

13. Use the MN and HR buttons to enter the code from STEP 11

14. Press the AM/FM button. The radio display changes to SEC Your radio is now “un-locked” and usable. The Theft-Deterrent feature is STILL active! If you want to disable it, use the instruction in your Owner’s manual. Use the code from STEP 11 instead of your personal code.

Hope it helps.
