Gm delco theftlock radio wont turn on?


You have to enter the theft code which was set into the radio. The owners manual will tell you how AS LONG AS YOU HAVE THE CODE. If you don't have the code, any GM dealer will help you out and call in to get your code. They will want to make sure you own the vehicle.

I have a pontiac 2004 van i need to unlock the radio


Your '04 is too new to unlock on your own.

There are 2 types of GM Theftlock, Theftlock I and Theftlock II. The Theftlock I is found in pre 2000 vehicles, and Theftlock II is in the later models.


Theftlock I - Uses a volatile user settable code that is input through the key pad on the front of the Radio. If the power is lost (dead battery etc.) the code is gone and must be re-entered for the radio to work. But with the correct procedure the owner can unlock it.

Theftlock II - Uses an EPROM (erasable/programmable read only memory) or a PROM (the difference is you can not alter the prom once it is programmed).

In either case the code is burned in and holds even when the power is lost. With Theftlock II the radio is married to the vehicle by way of the VIN. When the vehicle is started the computer compares the number in the radio with the VIN in the body control module. If they match, the radio works, if not the radio displays LOC and you are finished, there is no easy way around it. The radio will not work until you make a trip to the dealer.


The dealer will use a TECH 2 scanner to change the VIN stored in the radio. The radio does not need to be removed (for the serial number or any other nonsense). The technician just plugs into the computer and resets the VIN in the radio.

Thank you for using fixya, you can try removing the fuse to your radio for 5 min and reconnect it. This will reset the radio back to default and re-read the Vin number to the PCM to match with the radio. At most time this will get your radio working again and all you have to do is to re program the pre-set and clock.

Thank you for using Fixya and you may want to try pulling the fuse to your radio for 2 min and then reinstalling it. This may reset your radio and have the ECM recognize the radio matching VIN number to the Trailbalzer.

I NEED TO UNLOCK MY STERO IN A 2004 TAHOE


There is no actual "security code" in the radio as in past model years. The newer theft deterrent system utilizes the class 2 serial data to determine if the radio is in the appropriate vehicle...in other words it compares the VIN it has stored in it's memory with the VIN of the other modules (body control and PCM) in the vehicle to "check" to see that it's in the correct vehicle.

Each time the radio receives the "run" power mode message, it compares the VIN information it has stored to the VIN information received from a module on the class 2 serial data circuit responsible for transmitting that information. If a mis-match occurs, the radio display will indicate to the user the radio is locked. Once this takes place the radio will not respond to any buttons/commands and becomes inoperative. But the dealer can reestablish the radio into a different vehicle with a scanner.

GM Delco Radio unlock code


There are 2 types of GM Theftlock, Theftlock I and Theftlock II.


The Theftlock I is found in pre 2000 vehicles and Theftlock II is

in the latter models.


Theftlock I - Uses a volatile code that is input through the key

pad on the front of the Radio. If the power is lost (dead battery

etc.) the code is gone and must be re-entered for the radio to

work.


If you do not have the code, you can get it by phone, email, etc.

but you will need the 6 digit Radio ID number.


To get that, just turn on the ignition and hold down the 2-3 keys

(sometimes 1-4) and the first 3 digits will appear in the display.

Then hold down the AM/FM button and the last 3 digits will

show up.


With this number you can get the unlock code. This code is

available all over the place for less then $10.00. Just search

on theftlock. Use the HR and MIN buttons to enter the code

and you are in business.


This may sound a bit complicated at first but you can do it

in less then a minute with a little practice.


Theftlock II - Uses an EPROM (erasable/programmable

read only memory) or a PROM (the difference is you can

not alter the prom once it is programmed). In either case

the code is burned in and holds even when the power is lost.


With Theftlock II the radio is married to the vehicle by way

of the VIN. When the vehicle is started the computer

compares the number in the radio with the VIN. If they

match, the radio works, if not the radio displays LOC and

you are finished, there is no easy way around it. The radio

will not work until you make a trip to the dealer.


If the radio has an EPROM the dealer will use something called

a TECH 2 DEVICE to change the VIN stored in the Radio.

The Radio does not need to be removed (for the serial

number or any other nonsense). The technician just plugs

into the computer and resets the VIN in the radio. It can

be done (if you know how) in less then 15 minutes.

I checked around and the going rate is about $60.00

(none of the dealers I contacted would do it for free).

That works out to $240.00 per hour, but still much

cheaper then a new GM Radio.


If the radio has a PROM then the chip must be changed

and that seems to be factory only, in other words a new

radio! The good news is, only a very few of the high end

GM vehicles are equipped with a PROM so it is highly

unlikely that your radio has this anti theft feature.


Good Luck!
