Radio Loose Connections

you just recently answered my problem with my 2001 Chevy Impala Radio. My uncle knows about cars and he briefly checked the wiring to my radio and couldn't find a problem....I heard from someone else that since I have volume/preset controls for my radio on my steering wheel that the problem could also be in there. Is this true?

Unplug the battery. Open rear right door. Remove trim that holds carpet down and covers door pillar. Once removed take the wiring harness in hand. Remove the gray oem tape bout 2-3 inches from seat. Look for two orange wires that go into one orange wire(these are live wires hense you needing to unplug the battery). Clip the wire before and after where the tape is located. Peel back to expose bare wire. Take splice connectors. Slide the wires into the connector - 2 on one side and 1 into the other. Once you have the wires firmly in the connector crimp it with a pair of pliers. Take a lighter and melt the plastic jacket thats over the splice connector. Use black ul tape, not duct tape to put the wire bundle back the way you found them. Also note that there is a set of black wires set up the same. You may want to repeat the same process with them.

I need a unlock code for a radio for a 02 Chevy Impala

You have to go to the GM dealer and pay to have them program your VIN number into your new radio - just bring a receipt for where you bought it from.

Just changed the battery on my 2001 Chevy Suburban and now the radio displays LOC. I assume this is some sort of anti-theft security. Anyone know what the code is to reset the radio?

I have seen this alot. The best advice I can give on this is take it to a local Chevy dealer and MOST of them will put their code in for free.

2001 Chevy Impala Radio - No Sound

Sound like you have loose connections. Start at the rear of the radio and inspect the connections. Then move to each speaker in turn and do the same. When you find any disconnected or loose connections make them good.
