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..

I have a radio out of a 2004 Pontiac Grand Am - it is locked when I try to put in another vehicle - how do I unlock (with what code)


Radio code is specific for each and every car. It is specific like anti theft code. You can get it by providing your VIN# and registration details in authorized dealership. Nobody else can provide you. If anybody can provide you that , then there is no meaning of security for your car.

HOW TO UNLOCK RADIO LEL 0475 ENG After disconnecting the battery and then reconnecting it the radio has locked itself and needs a code to be used again. Any help would be great


unlock code should be on a sticker in glove compartment - sticker will just have numbers on it and no other info

if not there you will need to find your owners manual and it will be there

if you cant get it from either place you will have hard time proving this radio isnt stolen - they put in these unlock codes for the reason of preventing people from stealing radios and they figure real owners will have access to the unlock code since they were given it at time of purchase

good luck

My radio is in lock out mode and will not operate because I entered the wrong code in before finding the correct code in the owner's manual


Try disconnecting the battery for a few minutes and then enter the correct code. This should clear the locked mode.
Let me know if you have any other questions. Thanks.

How to unlock car radio for volvo v70


In the owners maunel you should have a card with the radio code on it.

The radio will only display EEE or OFF when the wrong code has been entered and the radio is locked depending on model - this is due to the battery being disconnected and the incorrect radio code being entered 3 times. You will neet to reset the radio. To do this the radio has to be on for either 2 or 4 hours - see the manual for your model. If you got the code from a card from Volvo, and it didn't work, then the radio has been changed or it has been reset by the dealer and your current code is invalid. You will have to pull the radio and find the serial & model number, and get Volvo to look up the code for that radio or the dealer may be able to lookup the radio code via vin# from Volvo. The dealer can reset the radio and enter a new code. When the radio is "ready" to accept an unlock code the display will say "codE". You will need this code if your battery is ever disconnected.

Its coming on but has the word lock on screen


This happens when the battery is disconnected. This is so thieves cannot steal your radio. Call the dealership and they can give you an unlock code.

My 2000 prado radio gone off,has help on screen and a key symbol lit up


Hi.

The radio is locked with the anti theft code.

This happens commonly when the car battery gets disconnected.

The anti theft code is printed in the booklet with car specifications (not the manual).

If you have misplaced the booklet, the easiest way to get this stereo unlocked is going to a car dealer and having the code calculated for a small fee.

Regards.

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.

Delco factory radio display is saying loc


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!
