IF this is the Factory Radio;

ALL GM Radios since 2001 are Class 2 DATA Type Radios
There is NO Customer Input to UNLOCK the Radio without GM Dealer Scan Tool
The Class 2 Radio has to be Programmed to the Vehicle it is installed in
There is no other way
apprx 1 hour labor
.

You can try a reset, but it is likely that it will not work
Disconnect Negative Battery Cable for 1 minute
Reconnect Negative Battery Cable & try radio
