Radio Code for 2000 GMC Safari

You mean to tell me that every time I replace the batery, or I remove the positive cable, I have to pay the dealer to put the code back to working?, What a gimic. It would be cheeper to just replace the radio with an after market. I was just trying to keep everything original. Thank you

More or less. I agree that it's stupid. Who would want to steal a factory radio?!?

also, please don't forget to mark this as solved.

Replaced alternator and now radio/CD will not work. I can't find the 3 digit code I was given by the dealer. Bought the Jimmy used about 10 years ago. Vin number is 1GKCT18W1XK521167 How do I reset...

If you call your local GMC dealer with your VIN they will give you the unlock code free of charge.

If you have locked the radio from trying incorrect codes, you will need to leave the key ignition in the ON position for one hour before you will be able to enter your code again.

"not ready" message on XM radio

Remove the Audio Fuse and then put it back in and the problem is solved. So frustrating that I had to find this solution on another site as both the dealer and XM had no idea how to fix it. Dealer tried to tell me it was a bad radio and I'd have to get a replacement from Hyundai.

The car leaked and radio died

Sounds like you have your stereo lock up and you need a code. if you don't have it and is the original OEM stereo write down your VIN number and call your local Jeep dealer they shut be able to find it by the car VIN number. Note: Some times dealers tell you than you will have to bring it over to unlock, that is not necessary truth. they just wan to make you pay for that. or some times the guy than you talk to don know what is he talking abode or is a new guy. if y you don't have luck the first time tray calling a deferment dealer or the same one on a deferment time. Good luck :)

You HAVE to take it to a GM dealership, as each car has it's own code based on the VIN. Usually costs around $45-60.
