There is NO DIY for Unlocking Unit

You "have to" go to Dealer
Dealer connects Scan Tool
Downloads the Radio & vehicle Info
Uploads to GM Computer
Downloads Unlock Info & setup from GM
Uploads to vehicle


labor = apprx 1 hour


No other way...............
unless you remove Factory radio & install Aftermarket radio
