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.
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?

Re: radio theft code
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.

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.
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.
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
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.
