Greetings...... “Hi, I’m Don (aka MOLurch) and I look forward to helping you!”

Factory GM Radios are "Class 2 DATA Type Radios" since 2002.
You cannot UNLOCK GM Radio without the use of GM Dealer Scan Tool & GM Computer to upload the V.I.N. to the Radio & BCM (body control module), unless you purchased the Radio from a company that can do this when you supply the V.I.N.
You need to take the vehicle to GM Dealer for them to UNLOCK
