If it is a Factory Radio there is No Code. You have to have the Chevrolet Dealer Connect the Tech 2 Scan Tool to Reprogram it.
Disconnect Positive + Battery Cable
Wait 2 - 3 Minutes.
Reconnect Battery.
Turn Ignition ON
Turn Radio On.

If that does Not work, then Dealer will have to reprogram

please clarify. i asked what IS the radio unlock code, not WHERE do i get the code. if you did not have a code for me, then there was no answer.

You do not understand...........
If you have the Factory Radio:
It is a Class 2 DATA Radio
Those GM Radios do NOT have Codes.
It has to be Reprogrammed at the Dealer by the Scan Tool

Class 2 DATA Radios store information about the Vehicle & is Uploaded to GM ( V.I. N., Year, Make & Model , etc. )
