thanks...........
I was afraid of that..........
IF you have the Factory Radio, the Factory Radio is a Class 2 DATA Type Radio
Meaning, there is NO Customer Input to UNLOCK.
Use of GM Scan Tool is needed to Program the Factory Radio
Dealer connects Scan Tool
Downloads Vehicle Info & Radio Serial Number
Dealer Uploads info to GM
GM sends Dealer UNLOCK Code
Dealer Programs the Vehicle BCM & Radio
apprx 1 hour labor

there is NO other way........other than replacing Factory Radio with Aftermarket Radio, Install Kit, Wiring Adapter & Antenna Adapter

sorry
