Sometimes the code is written onto the body of the set....You'll have to remove it to find out....It's usually written underneath....Good luck

Who would be the dealership for a saturn 2000 ls ,i bought it used and radio needs code

Saturn is a GM product, take it to any Chevy dealer and they should be able to help you. Although, if the previous owner left the car manual in the glove box then the factory unlock code should be there, unless they previous owner changed the code then the dealer will have to reset it.

How do i remove radio from 1996 buick riv

It shouldn't be that hard. There should be screws in the panel. I never removed a radio from a 96 Riv. But remove the panel that centers around the original radio. There are probably other screws that hold the radio in the dash. If you are installing an after-market radio such as Pioneer, Kenwood etc... check with a Buick dealer just to make sure that the original radio is not tide in to the computer in the car. I know later model Cadillacs such as the later 90's or 2000's and up Cadillacs are like that, and if you remove and install an after-market radio the on-board computer won't work. Hope this info helps you!!

I have a 1996 Buick Century and the headlights,brake lights,door locks,interior lights,radio do not work. when the car didn't start from a dead battery, I changed the battery and everything worked. after...

Be sure that the battery cables are clean with absolutely no corrosin on them.[Baking soda and water mix works really well.]Check the fusible link wires at the starter. You can pull on each one , if it stretches, it is burnt in two.

Replaced battery,while doing so radio and power antenna stopped working.Checked main fuse,its ok.Is there another fuse?

There's a dedicated fuse for radio. But most newer cars if you take out battery radio goes into "enter code" mode (security feature). You have to know special code to your specific radio. Info doesn't usually make it to second owners.

Hi, I have a 96 buick century,if i dont use it battery goes dead

The radio in my 1996 Buick century had a clock light that did not go off when the car was shut off, so the battery would go dead after 2 days. Disconnected the radio and all was well. Getting ready for a new radio now.

Looking on the steps to replace the starter on 1997 Buick Riviera

Disconnect your battery (make sure you know radio security code if you have one) Unbolt starter, lower it and remove wires. Some twisting and turning may be required to get it out. Reverse process to install.
