Ms Helen, Sorry, but you are going to have to take proof of car ownership and a picture ID (Drivers license) and go to a GM dealer to get the code. Some radio/TV repair shops might can get it for you but I don't know where your at. For sure a GM dealer can get it. Thank you

Just as an aside - Normally, when cars are sold the codes for stereo equipment and such are included with the owners manual, usually on a separate notecard, etc. Although I've never owned a Saturn, I have owned a Pontiac, same year (1999) Eventhough the previous owner(s) didn't take the best care of the engine, they certainly kept the manual and the various stuff that came with it when it was new The very same situation happened to me - new battery and suddenly the stereo didn't work. I was a full days drive away from home (Illinois) down in Florida. The car was in my mothers name... thank goodness the code was in the manual book, tucked behind some old insurance cards.

If you still have it, check in there somewhere, behind flaps, and in any conceivable pocket in the manual book.

2000 saturn radio is locked. how do i unlock


1.) To begin, if your radio is displays LOC, then proceed to step 2. If your radio says INOP, then turn your ignition to the RUN position, and turn the radio ON. You must leave it like this for a minimum of 1 hour (not 59 minutes) to clear the INOP message. I would wait 1 1/2 hours just in case doing it too early causes the timer to start over.

2.) Turn your ignition to RUN (if not already), and your radio to OFF. Press and hold preset buttons 2 and 3 for around 5-10 seconds to obtain a scrambled version of your radio's original factory set code.


3.) Call a GM dealer with this code. Tell them you are with a local shop i.e. I am Joe with Good Year Highway Tire; Then tell them: We have a 2000 Saturn SL we just changed a battery in and the radio is now locked. My mechanic pulled the pre-code. Could you give me the code? This usally works at no charge.

Once you have the code write it down. Keep atleast 2 copies. Hope this helps!

Code for the radio am and fm on security loc i was changing the battery and the radio won't come on it just reads loc


it needs to be called in to the MFG ..or dealer it is a anti theft deterrent and only a dealer can make the call ...Otherwise perhaps the previous owner wrote the code down in the Owners Manuel .

Changing battery 2001 Lumina and radio lock up.


someone (hopefully you) set the 3 or 4 digit security code on the radio. when power is disconnected, like if someone steals your radio, the radio locks and cannot be used. the code can be from 000 to 1999. the hour and minute buttons are used to enter the numbers. 2000 choices - good luck
to unlock the system:
1 turn on ignition - LOC will appear
2 press MN and '000' will appear
3 press MN again until you see the last 2 digits of the code you want to try
4 press HR until you see the first 1 or 2 digit of the code you want to try
5 press AM FM
6 SEC will appear if you got it right - LOC will show if you got it wrong
good luck

Radio stuck in "LOC"


you have locked the radio and will need to leave the ignition on for one hour to let it reset, then push 5&6 to get the code.  Radio should display --- and will let you try 3 codes then loc will display for one hour.  Just turn on the ign with engine off and pull parking brake to kill the drl lights.  And don't leve it unattended ;)   the code will need to be called in to obtain the unlock code.
