GM radio locked out

I replaced the battery in my 1997 GMC truck and now the radio is locked out.
How do I unlock it my self, or can I?

    I have had a similar problem with my Ford Mondeo Ghia X, but I don't have the manual book for the car.
    Can a local Ford dealer still unlock the audio system?

Changed battery and locked the radio


If you did the web searches looking for instructions on how to unlock the GM "Theftlock" system and they did not work for you, you likely have the "RDS" radio they talk about. Those you can only get unlocked at a dealership.

My radio is locked i just need the code for a monte carlo 97 GM delco radio


If the code is not at the back of your manual, try 0000 and if the radio locked it self from taking any more codes. Just disconnect the battery and that will reset the radio so you can re-enter the code. If 0000 did not work then log on to Radio-code.com, you can get your cod there for like $12.00 which is cheaper then the dealer and you get to know the codes as most dealer will just unlock the radio. Good luck and hope this helps, keep me posted if you have any more question.

Need radio unlock code 99 olds aurora


They are all random codes that are stored in the radio. The radio can lock it's self with possible 10.000 differant codes. You will need to take it to the dealer to have them use the gm scaner to retreive the code that is in the radio then they call the gm headquarters and those egg heads give an unlock code for the car. All of the make since?

Radio Unlock Code


if you bought the car new then there should be writen in the manual the code for the theft lock system on the radio. if pre-owned then it might ,might not be in there. or if you dont have one at all. go to your nearest GM dealer and have them fix it by finding the code. make sure to have them write it down for you incase this happens again.
