    GM Delco Radio Lock Out

    2000 Chevy S10 pickup, battery died, replaced, radio now locked out due to theft deterrent system. Dealer wants $30 to unlock it; probably a 5 minute job. Does one have self service cheaper options to get the code and instructions to unlock the radio?

    Probally the only thing you can do is take it to the dealer...
    Thats my 2 cents.

    I fished around online for awhile and here's what I came up with. All of it is legit except for where you have to fax this guy your number. I would instead take that number to a Chevy dealer. Hope it helps.

    In order to properly restore your radio to operation you must first obtain the scrambled back-up code from the radio.
    1. Turn ignition on and radio power on.

    2. Press and hold presets 2 and 3 for about 6 seconds until the first 3 digits of the display code are displayed. Write the numbers down.

    3. Press the AM/FM button, and the second 3 digits of the scrambled code are displayed. Write these numbers down. If the numbers do not change when pressing the AM/FM buttons, then your second three numbers are the same as the first three.

    4. Fax me (FAX 1-888-995-9496) your name, your 6 digit code and your naisso member number. I will also need your daytime phone number to call you back to confirm. I will call GM and retreive an unlocking code, which only takes a few minutes. The reason I limit this to members is that I know most of you by name and this will limit the chances of anyone with a stolen radio from contacting me.

    Once you receive your four digit unlock code from me do the following:
    1. Ignition on, Radio OFF.

    2. Press the HR button until the "LOC" disappears and "000" appears on the display.
    Note: if the display does not change from "LOC" to "000" the unit is probably in the "InOP" stage and must be left alone for one hour with ignition power applied. Every three unsuccessful entries will put the unit into "InOP".

    3. Set the first two digits (01-19) of the code with the HR (hours) button. (you will not see the zero if the first digit is a zero as in "02" for example)

    4. Set the next two digits (00-99) of the code with the MIN (minute) button.

    5. Press the AM/FM button to enter the code. The radio will now be unlocked and the display will change to the clock. Continue with the following steps to deactivate the theft deterrent.

    6. Press the HR button until the display changes to "000".
    7. Repeat steps 3-5 above to remove the previous code and deactivate the theft deterrent system. You may set a new personal security code as per your owners manual instructions.

    Delco radio LED began flashing

    From a '97 Pont. Grand Am...Recently I noticed that the led was flashing indicating that THEFT LOC was enabled.Problem is I never entered a code to set it. I recall playing the tape deck the day before and may have somehow unknowingly enabled the code.How can I remove the code so that THEFT LOC is not enabled?
    Part # 16213372
    Model: 2001
    Option Code: UP3

    Help!

    Hi, my name is Peggy and I was wondering if you could help me with a little problem. I had a new stereo in my 1999 Pontiac Grand Prix, but it was stolen. Now I have my old stereo in my car, but it is not hooked up and I need the LOCK CODE. I do not have the owner's manual, so I don't know how to get the unlock code in the first place. Would you be able to help me with this? I would be very grateful. Thank you!

    -Peggy

    I would greatly appreciate any help you can give me, my code the stereo gives me is 412-417,and dont you think its highway robbery to charge someone who legally owns the vehicle to fix something they rigged to break?

    thank you very much.

    The person who was able to get those numbers no longer participates here (at least as I've seen). I doubt you'll get much of a helpful answer.

    On another note, this thread should probably have it's sticky removed.
