Turned radio off then battery died, got vehicle fixed but no power to factory radio, all fuses check as good. Is there a trick to getting the radio to turn on again?

when the battery dies or is removed , the anti-theft code of the radio kicks in and the unit will not work again until a special code for that radio is reinstalled
the code could be in the user manual in the radio use section ,or there are sites on the net that may have the code for you

Need a radio code for your vehicle?

If you ever remove the battery or radio from most vehicles and upon reinstalling what was removed the radio will not work at all until the code is installed back into the radio<br /> This pertains to disconectiong the battery and or the radio<br /> You can have this code installed at the dealer that sold this car when new or you can go the the website I have posted below<br /> The charge to obtain the needed code is far much less to pay from the posted website I have posted<br /> Any dealer will charge you at least one hour book time to perform this installation<br /> Most labor book hours are well over $100 these days<br /> This website has an average charge of $20, some can be more depending on the vehicle<br /> This information is explained in a well worded manner to understand<br /> Here is the website<br /> <a href=""></a><br />

Replaced factory radio and then put factory back in. Screen read locked, Removed chip and now states call truck will not start. New alternator and battery. Whats up?

the radio once it is removed from a power source will automatically go into theft mode and will not power back on until the code is reinstalled
that has nothing to do with the chip
If you have interfered with the chip in the ECM then you will need to reset the CPU program in the ECM using a scan tool
what you have stated indicates that you need a workshop manual to read what not to do with a vehicle

Cd changer error on cd player and it wont operate 2006 Torrent

Changer problems are very common in the Torrent. These radios are very specific to the Torrent and specific to 2006. i usually take the stereo apart and replace the cd changer drive, replace it and then reinstall the stereo back into vehicle.. These Radios are programmed directly into data stream so you can remove the radio and reinstall it without having to get a code for it to work. But if you try and install a different stereo from another torrent it will have to be programmed to your vehicle before it will be able to work.

If I press any button on the radio, it just goes to the adjust time. How do I fix thia problem

I've had some gm radios do some funky things over the years. The first thing I would do is remove the radio from the vehicle and removing all the connections on the back side. Wait about 5 minutes than reinstall the stereo. If the buttons start working again you're all set. Most of the time they do. If they don't start working your looking at getting a new radio.
