First check the owners manual in the glove box. If theres one there.

Otherwise, normally you can goto a pontiac dealer and bring the radio uninstalled, or copy the top where all the info is and your registration/VIN#. They should be able to tell you the code. Or try a local car audio dealer. If it takes them minimal effort (by you doing all the work) they shouldn't charge you..Or throw them a fiver because you'll know the code for your radio forever..

My 2007 g6 wouldn't start today. Cold temps. Had car jumped. Let it run for 15 minutes. Turned off & now it won't start again. The CD display says locked. What is locked ? How do I fix it.

You have a low battery voltage problem, you need the battery load tested it is most likely defective. Most auto parts stores test batteries for free. The CD lockout was the system response to the low voltage, it is a security feature, you, or the original owner was given the code you must input to unlock the radio. If you are not the original owner or don't have the code number then go here (North America only)

Changed engine wont start anti theft light on all the time should it be flashing with key on paul

well you have to unlock your car Radio, the anti-theft will trigger if your battery is disconnected or your radio will lock if its been removed. In your car manual there should be a slip of paper or a label with the code to unlock your radio, if not you have to go to the dealer to have them unlock it

it may have a lock code. if so, be sure that you have the code handy before doing that.
the lock code usually is gave to you in an sticker and is placed in the owners manual in the back or front.

if you disconnect the battery, you will be required for that code as well.

if you have disconnected the battery before and you had not being request a code, then ,you are fine, you dont need a code.

Radio Code

I believe you have another problem, because the radio will keep the calibration of the radio as long as it stays in your van. it will only lock if radio is swaped with another pontiac radio. to unlock it you will need a GM tech II to recalibrate the unit.
