How did your radio become locked? Does it say locked or LOC on the display?

I bought another radio from a junk yard because the one I have the cassette,and cd player does'nt work. The new used one says locked.

Ok the problem is that these types of radios are specifically programmed to each vehicle so that they can not be stolen and easily used. The radio you purchased can be programmed to your vehicle but it needs to be done using a tech II, all GM dealers should have this tool and many independent garages.

So I have to pay a dealer $90.00 to give me a code!
You will need to pay someone to program the radio there is no code for these radios, these radios need to have things like the VIN # XXXXX into it for it to work(it is for the security) Sorry there is no other way. Independent garages are usually much cheaper where I live in Michigan we do this for $59.00.
