URGH! Hate to have to say it, but in the whole GM service manual, they do not show a picture of the face plate of the radio. So, I don't know what to tell you. Really makes me feel silly after trying to answer your question with what I thought was an easy answer and and easy fix. I am going to opt out of the question for you, so the other fellows here will know you still need help. I will then send a pm to a couple of guys who nay have something that they can post to show you. Really sorry, be patient and someone will get back to you soon. Thanks
Assuming the radio is factory, Bob is 100% correct on the procedure.
The HR and MN buttons should be on the very bottom left of the radio. They are hard to see because they are not illuminated, below the "Tune DISPL" knob and are the same color as the faceplate. Here is a picture of the radio that is supposed to be in your car. Please confirm this is what you have!
If this helps, please give the accept to Bob!
