My stereo says protect on it n it wont let me do anything. It has an amp in the gack oft he car that is attached when i biught the car it already had this installed

This could be one of two issues. Since you aren't saying whether what brand stereo is is or model we can only conjecture at a possible cause.

1. The amplifier was over driven and went into self-protect. These usually self-correct, so it may not be the case here unless the amp is damaged.

2. The radio itself is in security mode. If the radio has a security feature (and most factory and some aftermarket units do), it power was interrupted to the unit it will lock up until an unlock code is entered. This is to prevent theft. If this is the case you need to locate and enter the unlock code to get the unit to work again. Factory units usually have a card in the vehicle literature from the dealer that gives the code. Aftermarket units provide the code with the packaging. If you don't have, didn't get, or lost this data, you'll need to contact a dealer for factory radios and find out what info you need to obtain to get the code. If it is an aftermarket unit, you will need to contact the manufacturer for the code.

How To Find Your Radio/Stereo Unlock Code

<span><span>As a security feature, the Radio or Stereo Unlock Code is meant to prevent another person from using the Stock Stereo from your vehicle without proof of ownership of the vehicle. To obtain the Unlock Code for your Radio or Stereo, you will need the title, VIN, proof of insurance, etc. to prove that you own the vehicle or are authorized to Unlock the Stereo using the factory generated code. At the dealership, this should always be a free service, but some dealerships may charge to generate or lookup the Stereo Unlock Code.<br /><br />When you have your Radio Unlock Code, use the Preset Keys to input this code into your Stereo. You should hear a Beep when this code has been entered, this is an Unlock Confirmation. To retrieve your code, try the following suggestions:<br /> <ol> <li>If you have your Service or Owners manual, usually in the Glove compartment, look for the Radio Security Code in there. Usually it is on a White, Credit Card looking card, in the Manual.</li> <li>You can also check on the Sides of the <a href="/../cars/t8671868-unplugged_battery_post#"><span>Glove</span><span> </span><span>box</span></a>, inside and outside, for the Radio Code. It may be on a Sticker. Sometimes you can also find the Code under the Ash tray, on or around the Door Jamb on the door, or on the <a href="/../cars/t8671868-unplugged_battery_post#"><span>vehicle</span></a>, and in the Trunk, or on the bottom of the Trunk Lid.</li> <li>You can also use your VIN in many cases by calling the Dealer Service Department, and they can lookup the Radio Code using the VIN.</li> <li>If all else fails, you will have to remove the Stereo to gain access to the Serial Number. Write this number down and contact your Local Dealership to retrieve the Unlock Code for your Stereo. There is no charge for this.</li></ol></span></span>

My rado loks, how can I it unlok


OK, the unit will usually lock itself after it has completely been removed from the power mains. For example, when you have disconnected the car battery.

This code is initialized for security purposes. You will find this code in the original packaging of the radio. Have a look at the manual on how to type it in.

Hope this can be of help.

Kind regards

You HAVE to take it to a GM dealership, as each car has it's own code based on the VIN. Usually costs around $45-60.

Radio codes for 2007 g.m.

you have to call a gm dealership and give them your vin # and your code that your CD player is giving. They will walk you through the steps i had to do the same thing when my 2006 honda civic had the battery unplugged. It's the only way to get the proper codes. However if you have the owners manual there is a usually a card they give you with the code on it so that you can store it in your wallet.
