Had the same problem, turn key to on position and just let it sit for 10 minutes, this seems to reset the code. It's that simple :)

This typically happens when the battery has been removed or gone completely dead. When the radio loses power for an extended time, it goes into "lock" mode as a security feature.

I don't know a way to unlock a radio in such a state, but probably your nearest GM dealer does.

My factory cd player in my 2001 chevy cavalier wont read cd's so i put a factory cd player from another chevy cavalier and now the screen says locked


Most radios and cd players in cars require a code to get them operating again after they have been disconnected from the battery for an extended time. Hopefully a dealer could help you locate the code for that model.

I have a 2000 grand prix gtp with a radio cassette...I want a radio cd player. I went to a junk yard and found a 2000 grand prix gt with a radio cd player....I bought it (the radio cd player), can i swap...


The wires will be the same. The problem is that the radio you bought may have theftlock on it. ( it would be printed on the front). If so you don't have the code for it. there is a slight chance that it will work, probably 1 in a 100. If it doesn't and the display reads LOC not LOCK, then you can take it to a dealer and they can recode it for you. Costs about 50 dollars here. Indy

1997 chevy blazer put dvd in the player and it kicks it back out


Try different types of CD's, MP3 cd's, CDR's, and store bought CD's that are brand new and never scratched or dusty. If none of them work, the problem is the player, if the store bought works but not CDR's, you can't use CDR's. Hope this helps to get you started.
