How meny wires come out of the radio? What colors are they? Are the wires all the same thickness?

Zenith Trans Oceanic Reception

I am not sure, but it sure sounds like the filter capacitors on the input from the power supply are shot. What may be happening is as the radio heats up the caps are breaking down and allowing unfiltered dc into the circuit. It can cause the kind of noise you are talking about. If that is your problem it is the ac going back and forth (alternating between positive and negative current 60 times or cycles per second) By the way cycles per second (cps) is now called hertz. (hz.). Recaping or having all the paper and electrolytic capacitors replaced in your radio may solve the problem. Consult a quality radio service center.

Radio code

Found this on another site.

General Motors coded THEFTLOCK® radios have a backup unlocking code that can be accessed by a General Motors dealer or a Delco® radio repair center if the owner programmed security code is not available. Honda, Acura and Audi anti-theft radios are examples that will require radio removal to access the radio serial number that a dealer needs to obtain the factory security code. Sometimes the original dealer for a vehicle may keep records of the radio security code for factory-coded radios.

Sounds like you may have to remove the stereo so you can see the code on the back.

Then I would take it to a local dealer and prove its yours and give them the serial number.

They should be able to decipher it for you.
