I just bought a 2001 Cadillac DeVille. It didn't have a radio. I bought a radio from the wrecking yard but it says Locked-THEFTLOCK active. How do I get the code to unlock it for free?

I have a similar issue and found this info on a fourum. The radio you have is equiped with theft lock two. You either have to take it to the dealer or try the above work around.

There should be a code in your manual in the section about the radio, or in the section about electrical maintenance. This lockout is triggered every time the battery is disconnected.

Will a cd changer from an 2000 cadillac deville work in an 2001 cadillac deville

Yes it will but your going to have to go tot he dealer to activate your radio. The radio is programed to work with the ECM's VIN number and replacing the radio with another radio will not recognize the Vin number and will not activate.
Thank you for using Fixya and good luck.
