Question about 1998 Chevrolet Corvette

2 Answers

I have a 1998 Chevrolet Corvette (C5), which after changing out the battery, has initiated theftlock. I was not the one who set the code to unlock it, so that poses a problem. On other forums, I noticed you could hold presets 2 & 3 to retrieve a 6 digit code, then call an automated machine to use this combo to retrieve a bypass code to unlock it. Only problem is, the numbers never pop up after holding 2 & 3..

Locked car radio


The stereo has "TheftLock". If the power is disconnected from the stereo, it will not turn back on without first inputting the four digit security code. This renders the stereo useless if someone steals it from your car. If you've never set a code, the factory default code will be listed in the owner's manual. If you do not have one, call your local dealer for the default code.
www.DelcoLockCode.com will get you your unlock code for you. It's only $5 so it's better than going to the dealership.

1998 corvette c5 has miss at idle. I've changed plugs and put in a new throttle positioning sensor. Put products in gas for water. Still misses.


Try cleaning your Mass air flow sensor. When the MAF sensor gets dirty, it can cause your engine to run slightly lean and make sure your engine is running at normal operating temperature with a good thermostat.
At idle, if the MAF is slightly dirty and giving the wrong signal to the PCM. There is a good chance that your engine have a lean condition enough to cause it to have a miss. It's may just be in the perimeters that it will not set a check "service engine light" on, but will cause it to miss.
Start with that and post us back, be glad to help and thank you for using fixya.

Unlock radio need code to lock radio mufflerman08@yahoo.com


Your '02 is too new to unlock on your own.

There are 2 types of GM Theftlock, Theftlock I and Theftlock II. The Theftlock I is found in pre 2000 vehicles, and Theftlock II is in the later models.


Theftlock I - Uses a volatile user settable code that is input through the key pad on the front of the Radio. If the power is lost (dead battery etc.) the code is gone and must be re-entered for the radio to work. But with the correct procedure the owner can unlock it.

Theftlock II - Uses an EPROM (erasable/programmable read only memory) or a PROM (the difference is you can not alter the prom once it is programmed).

In either case the code is burned in and holds even when the power is lost. With Theftlock II the radio is married to the vehicle by way of the VIN. When the vehicle is started the computer compares the number in the radio with the VIN in the body control module. If they match, the radio works, if not the radio displays LOC and you are finished, there is no easy way around it. The radio will not work until you make a trip to the dealer.


The dealer will use a TECH 2 scanner to change the VIN stored in the radio. The radio does not need to be removed (for the serial number or any other nonsense). The technician just plugs into the computer and resets the VIN in the radio.

Thank you for using Fixya and you may want to try pulling the fuse to your radio for 2 min and then reinstalling it. This may reset your radio and have the ECM recognize the radio matching VIN number to the Trailbalzer.

Does the second remote work?  Have you changed the battery and then done any reset required by the manual?  Ten year old batteries are probably shot.
