Contact your local dealer and when you provide the VIN number and proof of ownership, they will give you the radio code.

2000 saturn radio is locked. how do i unlock


1.) To begin, if your radio is displays LOC, then proceed to step 2. If your radio says INOP, then turn your ignition to the RUN position, and turn the radio ON. You must leave it like this for a minimum of 1 hour (not 59 minutes) to clear the INOP message. I would wait 1 1/2 hours just in case doing it too early causes the timer to start over.

2.) Turn your ignition to RUN (if not already), and your radio to OFF. Press and hold preset buttons 2 and 3 for around 5-10 seconds to obtain a scrambled version of your radio's original factory set code.


3.) Call a GM dealer with this code. Tell them you are with a local shop i.e. I am Joe with Good Year Highway Tire; Then tell them: We have a 2000 Saturn SL we just changed a battery in and the radio is now locked. My mechanic pulled the pre-code. Could you give me the code? This usally works at no charge.

Once you have the code write it down. Keep atleast 2 copies. Hope this helps!

I have a locked radio for a 2000 pontiac grand prix thanks to a battery exchange...can anyone help ...the 6 dig code is 292298


Hello! You have done half of the work already! You can take the code, and the VIN to your vehicle; and call your local GM dealership. Tell them that you need the unlock code for the radio, and they will ask you for that information.

Also - there are 2 modes to the TheftLock - "LOC" or "SEC" and "INOP". Once the anti-theft is activated, the radio display will show "LOC" or "SEC" - you then have 8 attempts to enter your code. If after 8 attempts you don't enter the correct code, the display will change to "INOP". It is only at this time that you will need to wait one hour, with the ignition ON; before you can retry. After that - you will have only 3 attempts before the radio enters "INOP" mode again.

Hope this helps and good luck!

THE RADIO OF MY 99 CHEVY SILVERADO 2500 IS LOCKED. HOW DO I UNLOCK IT?


Look in your owners manual, maybe its written down or has the radio card with the security code in there. If the radio is original you can try and call the dealership and have your VIN number handy. If they say you need to bring it in you can try your repair shop, i've gotten the codes for several of my customers for free.

2000 chevrolet s-10 radio inoperable


believe it or not you have to take it to the dealer to unlock it. Plus before you go there you have to leave the truck running for 30 minutes without touching the radio to get it out of inop mode. The radio got put in inop mode from loc mode by putting in the wrong code 3 times in a row. Once its out of inop you can take it to the dealer and they can call gm and get the unlock code for the radio (should cost 30-45 bucks at most dealers)

I need help to unlock a radio in a 1997 Chevy Cavalier??


InOp means inoperable. There is a 4 digit code that you have to put in on the radio. I don't know if they are all the same code or not, but mine is 0642. read the directions in your car book. If you don't have one let me know and I can scrape mine up. Basically, though any time your battery is diconnected you will have to unlock the radio.
