Finding a code for a theftlock radio?

I am replacing a stock radio in a 99 olds alero.
The new radio has a theftlock code on it. How do I retrieve it? other than going to the dealership?

Is it accessable from the radio?

    current awnsure is wrong, you have to get a phone number and call the manufacturer, then you have to give them some numbers off your radio and they give you new numbes to put into your radio, then your radio is un-theflocked

Most of the time on newer cars the radio unlock code is on a sticker that is attached to the side of the glove box and the trunk lid. If you are replacing with a used radio from another vehicle you are going to have problems if you don't have access to the other vehicle. you will then have to call the manufacturer of the radio and do what the other guy said in answer #2

No, the radio won't tell you. If you are putting in another stock radio from an original vehicle it could be difficult as the VIN# of the vehicle usually lets the car manufacturer find the code. See if you can find a serial number on the unit somewhere and call the maker of the unit, they will have the listed pin 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>

On my 1999 chevy cavalier my radio theftlock is on and I would like to know how to put the code in the radio. Thanks Terry


The code entry instructions will depend on the actual make+model of radio fitted into your Chevy ( Chevy do not make the radio...they just put their badge onto radios made by at least 6 of the major manufacturers (such as Blaupunkt , Eurovox , Fujitsu etc)

If you can quote the make+model then the exact instructions can be given

My stock radio plug is cut off


Hello styxrivercan,

See if the color codes on this modifiedlife page match up with the cut wires. If not, I'd try www.installer.com.

Hope this helps.

Pioneer dehp3100ub.stock speakers wont work with unit?


If the vehicle has a premium sound package - you need to use the remote wire to turn on the factiry amplifier.
If you want to use the power from the radio for the speakers, you must buy and install a factory amplifier bypass harness.

My new head unit won't work


My thought is that there is a fuse blown. If you put the factory back in and that didn't light up then there is definately a fuse blown. Correct me if I'm wrong but guessing that you didn't cut the harness, by the fact that you could put the factory unit back in, you probaby don't have a problem with wiring. Aslong as you matched up wiring colors with the harnesses the wires should be fine. The next problem should be a fuse. Not all fuses blown in a way that is easy to see. Just replace the "radio" fuse in your fuse panel and give that a shot. If you still have problems get back to me. Good Luck!

Radio code for 94 del sol


Yes, If it is the stock standard radio, get the VIN# of your vehicle and ring your local Honda dealer. They will have the code on file. Also check the back page of your owners manual, it might be there.

Gm Delphi radio code


Below worked for me just two days ago... you DO NOT NEED to take it to the dealer and you do NOT need to disconnect the battery, this can all be done with a couple clicks on your radio and call into a phone number.
This was posted previously on another post...
Procedure:
01. Turn the ignition ON (The radio displays LOC)
02. Hold down the Radio Presets 2 and 3 buttons for six seconds
03. The radio display changes from LOC to a three-digit number. Write this number down. Don’t take forever, fifteen seconds max before the next step.
04. Press the AM/FM button
05. The radio display changes to another three-digit number. Write this number to the right of the first one.
06. You now have a six-digit number, the first three digits are from STEP 03 and the last three digits are from STEP 05
07. Call 1 800 537 5140
08. Press 1 then #. You’ll hear Invalid Code, try again
09. Press 139010 then #. You will be asked to enter your four or six digit code followed by *
10. Enter the number from STEP 6 then *
11. Listen to the four-digit number and write it down. It will be repeated twice
12. Turn the ignition ON (The radio displays LOC)
13. Use the MN and HR buttons to enter the code from STEP 11
14. Press the AM/FM button. The radio display changes to SEC
Your radio is now un-locked and usable
