DEALER Can do it

And his options end there…………. Doc
Jim 2012-01-12 03:34:41
Yes, but I shouldn’t have
to pay them to do it. Jim

Next time When changing The Battery you will KNOW to KEEP power onto the
Vehicle, Most Garages Here use a 9 volt Transistor Battery,
Someone Said it Cost About $40.00 At The Dealer

He can go back to the guy the radio was stolen from (Notice, I didn’t accuse
HIM of stealing it), and see if he knows the unlock code!

Look in the owners manual as I believe there is a procedure there. I think I
saw something in my ‘burbs manual about this. There should be as there are
times a batt. can go stone dead with no warning (had 4 Interstate batts. do
it to me cause the posts came off the plate connectors so I do believe they
show how to do it.

Do this first
1. Press and hold presets 2 & 3 or 1&4 for about 10 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.
Unlock Code do this next:
Go back to the car, Do this:
1 Press the HR button and set the first 2 or 3 numbers.
2 Press Minute button and set the next 2 or 3 last numbers.
3 Press AM/FM button, SEC “—–“should be displayed.
4 You can now turn the radio on.
If your Radio say “InOP”
This means too many wrong codes have been entered and the radio must
be left power up for 1 hour with battery and ignition applied before 3 more
attempts can be made.

If the instructions I sent do not work-
goto alt.autos.gm NG and post your question, I have seen the answer posted
there with all the step by step instructions on how to retrieve them and how
to turn the radio back on-
There are may sites that offer this help also, just do a goggle or yahoo.
When you post question be clear on car- year- and make, some models have
quarks on how they reset,

Did you write the numbers down somewhere when you bought the truck?
If you don’t have access to the unlock code….then your only option
is back to dealer as far as I know.
