Maybe this will help, found online:

".... Call a GM dealer. They will instruct you how to extract codes from your locked radio. Give them the codes you retrieved from your radio. They will call a special number at Delco radio to get you an unlock code. They (the GM dealer parts or service person) will give you the unlock code, and the procedure for your specific radio. Follow the instructions, and you're radio is working!Now, here is the big tip on this- Some dealers will get the code for you NO CHARGE. Others will charge you around 50 bucks. It depends on the dealership, and how much you deal with your local dealership. I worked in a GM parts department, and I had NEVER charged one of my regular customers for the code to unlock their radio.
Also, no dealer will unlock a radio, unless you can show ownership of your vehicle. It's just like getting new keys form VIN# for your vehicle, from a dealer, it's a legal issue."

"... Try this, it worked for my 1998 Sunfire and a 1975 Monte Carlo.
Press & hold the 2 & 3 buttons @ the same time for about 10 seconds; a 2 or 3 digit code will appear, write this # down,press & hold the am/fm button for about 10 seconds: another code will appear, write this # down, then call 1-800-537-5140 and enter 202108 followed by the # key, then enter the #'s that you wrote down from your radio followed by the * key. The call will give you a 3 or 4 digit override code. Write this code # down so you have it if you ever need it again. Enter this # into your radio following the instructions in your owners manual. If you get an override code that starts with 0, you drop the 0 when entering the code into your radio.
If you don't have an owners manual, try this, press & hold the hour button until the first 2 digits of your code come up, then press & hold the minute button until the last 2 digits show. Then press the am/fm button. This should reset your stereo. It did mine...."

1999 Ford Fiesta. The ''3000 Traffic'' radio is locked following the battery dying. Can you help with the unlock code?Serial No.:M044088


It's either in the owner's manual or the dealer will have to give it to you. Get the VIN from the car (registration?) when you call them.

The battery died on my 2001 eclipse, now the radio only says ''off''?


This is the anti-theft device on your factory radio. When the battery died, the radio thought it had been removed from your car and went into anti-theft mode. When you turned the car back on, the radio should have read "CODE" on the display, at which point you need to enter the factory anti-theft code. After 3 failed attempts at entering the code, it will simply read "OFF" and the radio is locked.

At this point:
- find your factory anti-theft code - it should be in your owner's manual, or you can contact a dealer to retrieve it
- turn the key to the ACC position (radio and accessories on, but engine is off)
- turn on the radio so the display reads "OFF"
- let the car sit for 1 hour
- radio will turn off automatically and reset
- turn the radio on again, and it should read "CODE"
- enter the factory anti-theft code

Make sure you have the code before starting the procedure. To enter the code, use the radio preset buttons. For example, if your code is "4321", hit Preset #1 button four times, Preset #2 three times, Preset #3 two times, and Preset #4 one time. Then hit the "Tape" or "CD" button. Radio should now be unlocked.

YOU SHOULD HAVE THE LOCK CODE ON A SMALL CARD THAT CAME WITH THE TRUCK POSSIBLY WITH OWNERS MANUAL OR IN YOUR GLOVEBOX. IF NOT YOU MUST REMOVE THE RADIO AND RETRIEVE THE NUMBERS ON THE BACK OF THE UNIT AND CALL A CHEVY DEALER TO GET THE CORRECT CODE TO UNLOCK THE FUNCTIONS.
