My ifno only shows this part is only compatible with a 05 and up monte carlo. If you call your local gm dealer and give them your vin number and the serial number of the radio they will let you know if its compatible or not and if it is they will give you the unlock procedures of the radio.

Car stereo locked on me have digit numbers need code to unlock 1999 monte carlo

When you disconnect your battery and then reconnect it again, it disables the radio. This is an anti-theft protection for your car radio.
The enable your radio the activation code is in your vehicle owner's manual. If you do not have this code you need to go to your vehicle manufacturer's service centre and get them to enter this code for you.

The CD player on my 2008 GMC Acadia wont play CD's & says disk error when you put one in. I blew canned air inside & tried to run a lens cleaner but it wont spin up.

If you tried lens cleaner, the next step is disconnect the negative battery for about 10 minutes but before you do this make sure you have the radio code you will need it later, after 10 min. If still not reading them you have to replace the CD lens. This job should be done by an expert only or check with your dealer maybe the car stereo is still under warranty.

Cd player doesnt work and states ''error 06''

If you all ready try cleaning the CD lens now the next step is disconnecting the negative wire from the car battery for about 10 min. but make sure that you have the radio code before disconnect the battery or make sure that your radio does not have a security code, if nothing happen after this try you must send the radio for repair usually they have to replace de CD lens. Good luck

Please help me, I have a 4 Runner 2003 that has a JBL CD Player and a Cassett player in one built in the dash. Both are not working: The CD Player keeps flashing (Error 3) when ever I put a CD in...

did the error code start with the tape getting stuck? i have heard that if you disconnect the battery for 5-10 minutes it will reset the radio but make sure you have a code for it to unlock it it the radio has security. they say it starts working again if you do this. again this is just what i have heard a toyota tech say when i worked there. it may be that it knows it has a problem with the tape and keeps it inop, as far as getting the tape out, it either breaks the tape or the tape player or both. i worked at a car stereo shop for 10 years and very rare for both to survive.

Have 2003 monte carlo aux input cutting out

If the radio itself works all the time then you probably have a bad connection between the aux device and the radio. It could be a cable, or it could be the jack. Depending on that it is in easy fix or a harder one. You can take it to a place that installs car stereo equipment and have them look at it or just tackle it yourself. If you put in an aftermarket radio you will need a wiring harness and possibly an antenna adapter. Sometimes you need other things that interface between the car and the harness as well such as controls for steering wheel remotes and other special items.

Replaced battery now radio shows loc on 1995 monte carlo

Normal 0 I work at a GM dealership is CA and I’m sorry to have to tell you this, but you will have to take your car to a local dealership and have them unlock the radio for you. It doesn’t take that long but they will probable charge you something for the service.
