Hello... sorry to hear you are having problems. You will have to remove the radio from the dash and retrieve the serial number from the top of the radio. You can then contact a GM dealership service department and they can give you the code. Do not press a bunch of buttons on the radio trying to get it to work because you only have a couple of tries before the radio locks down. Some dealerships charge for this service of giving you the code and some do it as a courtesy. Good luck with your venture and I hope this helps!

Best option is a scan tool or code reader.Alternatively you can disconnect the battery but if you have theft lock on your radio you may need to get the code to reactivate it.

Ingtion switch bad 04 pontiac sunfire


Key Lock or electrical switch? I'll guess the electrical switch...you need to drop steering post to get to it. You can find instructions in most any manual...If no manual, beware of yellow wire it triggers air bag!!! Disconnect battery before doing work and know if your radio needs a code to get it working again before you start! It's not a terribly hard job unless you don't like working in tight places and have no patience.
