You will need to go to the dealer to prove ownership and then they will give you the code, they will have you push and hold a few buttons to retrive two 4 digit numbers and then they take that and cross it to a code.

The following procedure will give you a new code that you can use instead of your personal code. Using this new code, you can "unlock" your radio and then "re-lock" it with a new code if you wish. Prerequisites: The radio must be in LOC mode NOT in INOP mode. Let me explain. If you have activated the Theft-Deterrent feature of your radio and loose power, the radio goes into LOC (theftlock) mode. With the ignition on, you must use the MN and HR buttons to enter you personal code in order to unlock it (The instructions are on page 3-27 in your Y2K Owner's manual). If you fail to enter the correct code eight (8) times, the radio goes into INOP mode. You have to wait an hour with the ignition on before the radio returns to LOC mode (go for a long drive somewhere).

Procedure:

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 on page 3-27 in your Y2K Owner's manual. Use the code from STEP 11 instead of your personal code.

Note: This tip originated from LOTZAHP, Austin TX (credit must be given where credit is due). I verified it on an Y2K C5 with a locked radio - mine.





I hope this helps, I found it on a corvette forum, should work fine with your radio. Again let me know how this turns out. Please.

Jake

I've a 1997 pontiac grand prix and the radio is in the theft loc due to a caR BATTERY REMOVAL.Is there an override code to make the radio operational again?


there is a card that has your radio unlock code. it would have been in the glove box in the cars' manual. the car's 12 years old, so I'm guessing you're not the original owner. if you do have the manual, the card is probably in the manual, or the original owner may have written it there.

if you can't find it the registered owner needs to take it to the dealership to get the unlock code. there is no magic number to unlock all of them.

Radio locked on my 98 grand prix need unlock code


If your lucky the dealer may still have it or the code may be written down at the back pages of your manual. The other place where you can get the code would be www.radio-code.com. before you try any of that, try 0000 to unlock your radio. Good luck and hope this helps.

Theftlock on rdio


You have to go to a dealer and have them reset the password for you. I had the same problem with mine and that's the only way to disengage the security feature. They shouldn't charge you for the service as long as you explain to them what the problem is.

The code to unlock the radio is in your owner's packet, each radio is unique and has it's own code, call the dealer they may be able to get the code using your VIN number.
