Hi , LOC means radio is locked....1. You can retrieve a set of factory numbers in the radio that enable you to get a unlock code . If it says INOP you will have to leave the key in the ON position or let the car run for at least an hour before you attempt any unlock procedure .INOP means a secondary theft lock due to too many attempts to unlock radio........2. look at the face of your radio and hold down the preset buttons 1 and 4 or 2 and 3 ( depending on year and model , if 1+4 don't work use 2+3, ) for about 10 seconds or until a set of 2 or 3 numbers come up on the display. Write these numbers down.......3. Next press the AM/FM button, a new set of numbers will now show. Write these numbers down. You will then need to call an 1-800 no. with the numbers you have written down to get the unlock code. Try calling a GM dealer and ask them to do it for you, or some sites on internet will get for you for a fee.....4. Once you have the unlock code enter it by pressing the MIN button until display shows the last 2 digits of the unlock code, then press the HR button until the first 2 digits of of unlock code are shown. Then press the AM/FM button to enter the code. The radio will now display SEC and normal function is restored.

I replaced my starter on my 2002 GMC Savannah and when I go to start the van the words LOC come up on the radio. What is wrong?


You obviously disconnected the battery, your radio has to be re-coded. Loc means the radio is locked and needs a code to re-instate, did you buy the vehicle new? If not, maybe a different radio was fitted by the previuos owner

My fuel pump seems to be pumping gas but my van wont start 02 chevy venture cranks gets fire an gas but wont start


Just because it pumps gas doesn't mean it is at the exact pressure it should be? Most fuel pumps have a psi of 40 to 45 psi, your fuel pump could be pumping at 25 psi or less which is not enough to start your car even though you can see some fuel pumping out. A simple tool to check fuel pressure can be bought at any auto parts store, check the specs on the fuel pump for your 02 Chevy first to see at what pressure it works, then use the fuel pressure gauge to check it. Anything less than what the specs on your fuel pump are suppose to be and you have a bad fuel pump?

Let's say your fuel pump works at 43psi, you hook up the fuel pressure gauge and you find that it reads 25 to 30 psi, that means it's not enough fuel pressure to start your engine.

HELP ME PLEASE


This may be worth a try... works on some of these... 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.
