    How to unlock your radio....

    I want to thank Cutlass for the link and info and doberman152 for trying it out to verify it works.

    How to unlock your radio:


    1. Press and hold the preset button 2 & 3 or 1 & 4 for older radios, about 6 to 9 seconds Until the first 2 or 3 digits of the display code are displayed.

    2. Write the numbers down.

    3. Press the AM/FM button; write down the next 2 or 3 numbers.

    4. Call 1-800-537-5140

    The recording will ask you to enter a number corresponding to a subsidary of GM ie, press 1 for Chevrolet, 2 for Pontiac...Ignore this and enter the following number 106010 and hit the star button *. Now enter the numbers you obtained from the radio itself followed by the star * key, and in mere seconds, you'll have a valid unlock code.

    5. Use the HR button on the radio to enter the first 2 digits of the unlock code, and the MN button to enter the second 2 digits of the unlock code. Now press AM/FM and you're done. Unlocked radio!

    Read section 3-17 thru 3-18 of your owners manual.
    If you don't have one, there is a sticky at the top of the page in "General Info Stickies"

    Anyone try this lately? I'm curious if the dealer code "106010" in step 4, is still valid. If not, I check out what the new code is at work and update this post.

    seems I read on here in the last couple months where someone used this and it still worked for them.

    I just called the number and it rang endlessly and the recording never started up.
    I'll try again later
