Radio theft code

I refuse to pay someone to give me a theftlock code for my new 2000 Chevy Trailblazer that I just picked up from an auction. Unhook battery to do some engine work and the dealership wants $30. Is there anyone out there that can throw me a bone please.

Thanks Jason
I have a 2004 Chevy Impala with a Delco Radio, IT doesn't show RDS on the face of the radio. Ive tried pushing 2/3 and 1/4 together at the same time, and nothing comes up with a 3 ditg number. Is there anything else I can do to retreive these numbers that are needed?

The dealer wants the $30 to remove the radio to determine the serial number from the radio. Remove the radio yourself (quite easy to do - two philips screws at the bottom of the facia, it pops off, then four 7/32 machine screws holding the radio bracket and out it slides), then drive to the dealer in the vehicle the radio came out of. The service department will give you the code when you show them your registration and show them the radio itself so they can read the serial number.

What is unlock radio code for audi a6 2000


You will have to go to the dealer these codes are radio specific so each radio has it's own code. The dealer has a database based on the radios serial number, they won't give u the code if the radio looks to be stolen or not for that vehicle unless u know someone that works at the dealer.

How can I get the lock code for a radio on a 97 Volvo 850?


First make sure that the code has not been noted somewhere within the car (underneath the ash tray, glove box , rear of sun visor etc)
 
 
To see if your code is available here  for free then the radio will have to be removed from the dashboard (and if you are lucky, someone may have written the code on the casing ) .
 
If not then POST A BRAND  NEW  QUESTION
 
quoting the radio MAKE+MODEL plus ALL the LETTERS+NUMBERS on ANY LABELS ,BARCODES or STAMPED IN THE METAL CASING
 
Also quote the MAKE of CAR
 
note: Unfortunately not all radios can be decoded using the Serial Number
 
Otherwise try your Main Dealer ...........or take it into a Decode Service who will plug in a laptop to read/recode the memory chip (EEPROM). This takes a few minutes and shouldn`t be too expensive

Dont have code for 2004 chevy aveo radio.i just had to replace battery and relized ther is no code for my radio in manual how can i get one


When you bought the car it should have came with a credit card looking thing that is green and white and says Anit Theft code. If you dont have that you are pretty much sol and best bet will be to call local junk yards and see if they have a radio. Or if you know someone who is really nice at the chevy dealer they can look it up for you. Dont let them lie my father works at one and they can pull up anything on your car.

Hi I bought a ford fiesta 2006 model at the auction, unfortunaly it came with the radio and im strugling to get the code, pls help.


have you looked in the owners manual ?sometimes people leave the code card in there, also another thing to look for is if there is a number some where around the glove box, sometimes they give you the serial number for the radio , if you find that then you will need to contact the dealer to ask if they can give you the code. If the serial number is not found in the glove box then you need to get the serial number on the stereo itself. You will need to take the stereo out to do so

I need the Theftlock radio unlock code for a 2000 Pontiac Montana


it aint working dude because you have a RDS radio, that means your radio transmits data, like when it shows the song and the title of whoever sings it, your screen dont say LOC, IT SAYS LOCKED, YOU HAVE TO TAKE IT TO A DEALER TO GET IT UNLOCKED, THEY USE A TEC 2 DEVICE TO DO IT. Thats why those steps dont work, i gurantee it, because i got a 2003 pontiac grand am and had the same problem.

Unlock code for radio


Sorry to say this but you will need to go to your local gm dealer if this is a theftlock system. You wil need the serial number and proof of ownership for them to give you the unlock code.
