Your radio is showing this message due to :
A scan tool is needed to see if the vin# ***** be reentered into the radio to get it out of lock mode.
This is my 1st answer, but does not have to be my only answer. You the website and myself expect you to have a great experience with my help. Please let me know if you are pleased by selecting a star rating above or by replying and saying your pleased. Not rating or rating 1-2 stars does not benefit you nor me in any way. Follow up and reply as often and when needed, there is no extra charge to do so.
The dealer does have the tool needed, it is hit pr miss at independent shops.
How are you supposed to get what? There is nothing to get for this issue. The radio needs an attempted reprogramming to see if that is all that is needed as well to see if that fails indicating the radio is bad.
Your welcome, are you pleased with my help?
Sorry you were not pleased. I have no control over the questions customers ask us. You happened to have asked a question that can not be resolved at home DIY unless you have a dealer level scan tool. That does not make me a bad tech nor does it make my answer wrong it just means you asked how to address a concern that you do not have the means to fix yourself which is not uncommon. Working on cars is not easy and quite often does require special tools.
Sorry you feel my assistance had no value.
