There is a code. This usually happens when the battery dies, when you disconnect the radio or disconnect the battery. Unfortunately only the dealer or delco repair shop can unlock it.
have a great day!

I need the radio code for a 2000 ML 450 bought used and code card is not available. the vin # 4JGAB72E5YA179735


Hi,
According to your requirement you have to purchase radio code or you can use car radio decoder software to decode your car radio. If you have experienced a dead battery, disconnected the factory radio harness or disconnected the battery to the vehicle then you must need radio code. Better to purchase a radio code. Before purchase determine of your radio type and do the following steps. The radio must be in LOC mode NOT in INOP mode. Turn the ignition ON. Press and hold presets buttons 2 & 3 or 1 & 4 for approximately 10 seconds. The radio display changes from LOC to a three-digit number. Write this number down. You will then have fifteen seconds max before the next step must be performed. Press the AM/FM button. The radio display changes to another three-digit number. Write this number to the right of the first one. You now have a six or four-digit number, the first three digits are from STEP 3 and the last three digits are from STEP 5. If you have a four digit number, it will show all four digits at the same time. Then purchase the code mentioning your car model and unlock the radio. You can purchase your code from radio-code.com by credit or debit card.

You will have to contact GM for the code. There are no generic codes and each is unique to prevent use after theft, otherwise a code would be rendered useless in preventing use after theft. Unless the person or place has the code for the radio, you will need to contact GM.

I have an opel zafira and the radio turned into safe-mode but i didn't have the code. the serialnumbers on the radio are: 4660 103 Delco GM 90 493 281 PA6 - GF15 Can you please help me


Unfortunately DELCO radio codes are only available from the Main Dealer or a Professional Radio Decoding Service

They are not available for free from anywhere on the Internet as access is required to the original factory database which is not commercially available.

I have a 2000 chevy venture and the radio it just locked pleae help me it is driving me crazy


Taken from:

GM DELCO THEFTLOCK RADIO UNLOCK CODE:
1. Press and hold presets 2 and 3 for about 5 to 10 seconds until you
get 3 digits on your display. This is the first 3 of 6 digits you will
need, so write 'em down.
2. After doing step one and writing down the code, immediately press
the
AM/FM button to get the last 3 of the 6 numbers you'll need, and write
'em down. (if you wait too long between steps 1 and 2 and the LOC code
displays again, just start over).
3. Call this number, it's a prerecorded message, so don't worry about
having to talk to anyone...1-800-537-5140. The voice will ask if
you're
calling for Chevy, Pontiac, Cadillac, etc... When you here him tell
you
to press "2" for Pontiac, press 206010 and hit the # key. He'll ask
you
for the 6 digit code that you've written down. Enter that and press
the
* key. He will then give you a code, and the option to get additional
4
digit codes, but one should be sufficient.
4. Follow the normal procedure in your owners manual for unlocking the
radio with your new code...press the hour set button on your radio
until
you get the first two numbers of the code, then press the minute set
button until you've entered the last two numbers. Immediately press
the
AM/FM button once the correct code is entered and the code SEC or
"secured" will be displayed on the display screen. Now, just turn the
radio on, and your ready to roll.
There is an additional step you can take to remove all codes from the
radio and start from scratch by entering your own personalized 4 digit
code so that it won't get you in a pickle again! Just repeat step 4
and
you should get a display screen that reads ---. This means the code is
out, and you can now program your own code. Of course, once you
receive
the 4 digit code from the GM recorded message, just keep it in a safe
place, because you can use that same code again and again should you
have any more problems with it in the future. Good luck

GM Radio Locked but will not display codes by pressing 1&4 or 2&3


Does your GM car or truck Radio display LOC and does not turn on? Chevrolet, Buick, Pontiac, GMC, Cadillac, Oldsmobile vehicles used a theft system to lock the radio when power is lost. This system was used from the ealy 1990's to the early 2000's.
jQuery('.intro .thumbnail').each(function(i,e){ jQuery(e).find('img').one('error',function(){ jQuery(e).remove(); }); });
Instructions:
  1. If your radio displays the word LOC, you can retrieve a set of factory numbers in the radio that enable you to get a backup unlock code. If the radio says INOP, you will have to leave the key in the "ON" position, or let the car run for at least 1 hour before you attempt any unlock procedure. INOP means a secondary theft lock due to too many false attempts to unlock the radio.
  2. Looking at the face of your GM Delco radio, hold down the preset buttons 1 & 4 OR 2 & 3 (Depending on year and model) for approximately 10 seconds or until a set of 2 or 3 numbers comes up on the display. Write the numbers down.
  3. Next press the AM / FM button. A new set of 3 numbers will now show. Write these numbers down. You will then need to call a 1-800 phone number with these numbers to get the unlock code. There are many sites on the internet that can get it for you- for a small fee. Or, try calling your local GM Dealer and ask for them to do it. Many times they will do it for free. It only takes a minute.
  4. Once you have the unlock code, enter it by pressing the MIN button until the display shows the last 2 digits of the unlock code, then press the HR button until the first 2 numbers or shown. Then press the AM / FM button to enter the code. The radio will now display SEC, and normal function is restored.
Also, its possible that you need RESET your GM Radio; this is the procedure: While performing maintenance on your car, you may disconnect the radio from the battery in your GM vehicle. GM cars contain Delco radios that are protected by Theftlock, which locks the radio after it has been disconnected from a power source. Iit can only be reset and unlocked with a car-specific security code. Identifying the security code for your GM vehicle is the only way to reset the car radio and disable the Theftlock protection device. jQuery('.intro .thumbnail').each(function(i,e){ jQuery(e).find('img').one('error',function(){ jQuery(e).remove(); }); });
Instructions:
  1. Turn on your car. Your Delco radio will show "LOC" in the LED display.
  2. Press and hold down both the second and third preset buttons. Hold these buttons down for at least six seconds.
  3. Write down the two- or three-digit code that appears in the LED display.
  4. Press the AM/FM button on the radio.
  5. Write down the next two- or three-digit code that appears in the LED display. You should be left with either a four- or six-digit number. Turn off your car.
  6. Call the Delco radio automated customer support line at 1-800-537-5140.
  7. Press "1" and then press the pound sign. The automated voice should respond "Invalid code, try again."
  8. Enter the number 139010 into your phone and then press the "*" sign.
  9. Enter the four- or six-digit number you wrote down from Steps 3 and 5, and then press the "*" button.
  10. Write down the four-digit code given by the automated voice.
  11. Turn on your car. Enter the Delco unlock code using the procedure outlined by your GM owner's manual. Normally, the unlock code is entered with the "HR" and "MN" buttons on your radio.
  12. Press the AM/FM button. If you have entered the code correctly, your LED display will read "SEC" and the radio will be unlocked.

Hope this help.

After changing my battery my rado shows LOC on the display. I didn't have the code when I bought it my chevrolet venturra 1997. Please help me


you will have to take the vehicle to the dealership for them to unlock your radio. for those radios the loc feature should be something that the user sets and is only active when power is removed but can by undone by the dealer they usualy do not charge for this.
