Chevrolet Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
I am sorry your having this problem
this is NOT the original radio out of this truck ? a used one from another truck ?
was it programmed to your trucks VIN number once installed ?
Ok no Problem i just needed to ask that is all
these radios now since @ 2004 range and newer for theft reasons are programmed with a scan tool with the programming for your cars VIN number
the radio once plugged in talks to the other computers and they all check each others VIN number programming
since the VIN number programmed in this radio you installed does NOT match the truck that is why it is locked
I am sorry to say the ONLY way to unlock this radio where it will work fine in your truck is a shop with programming software and a programming scan tool need to program the radio while it is in your truck to your trucks VIN number
there is NO way around this at all
most honest shops can do this for you for 1/2 labor charge worse case
like a said any shop with programming capabilities it does NOT have the be the GM dealer to do this
how are you making out ?
