I have a 99 gmc and i want to take the factory radio out but it has theft lock and i'm not sure how to get it out, got any ideas?

theft lock is an electric code that keeps the radio from working if the power is disconnected you must reprogram your code to work again if theft lock is not programed by the owner it needs no code to work if you are going to replace it with an after market radio it is mute any way

Gm 2002 tahoe radio locked

Usually, if you go to a "good" GM dealer...they will take care of this problem for you. It requires them calling a 800 number to get the code. Just give them the run around ...."I bought this vehicle used, and my battery died and now my radio is locked...." it usually will work out for you without any cost.

How do i resest the computer on a 2007 chevrolet tahoe?

disconnect the negative terminal on the battery for about 1-2 minutes this should reset to factory specs and turn out any warning lights that may be on ...however note you will lose the radio settings unless you hookup a secondary power source to it {unless you have the code to unlock it after disconnecting the battery as this on most vehicles comes as an anti theft deterrent ...if you need to reset the radio code if you do not have one check your owners Manuel perhaps the salesman wrote it down in there as well as it may be under warranty as of yet i am not sure of your circumstances but this is how it is done
