How do I unlock the security code my radio 1997 Chevy venture

 

Radio should display "LOC"

Key On

Press & hold Buttons 2 & 3 together
Should be 3 numbers that appear on Display
Write them down
Press & Hold the AM/FM Button

Should be 3 numbers that appear on Display
Write them down

 

This is the Factory Code....NOT the UNLOCK Code

 

Post those numbers "in order" here & I will get the UNLOCK Code

 

Note: DO NOT enter any number that are NOT the UNLOCK Code or Radio can go into Total Lockup

Do you just put in 1919 or do you put it in on the clock
Expert:  Don 'Mo Lurch' replied 6 years ago.

 

sorry.....yes.......using the Minutes & Hour Buttons

 

  1. "LOC" appears when the ignition is "ON."
  2. Press "MIN" and "000" will appear on the display.
  3. Press "MIN" again to make the last two digits agree with the code.
  4. Press "HRS" to make the first one or two digits agree with the code.
  5. Press "AM-FM" after you have confirmed that the code matches the secret code that was written down. The display will show "SEC," indicating the radio is now operable and secure.
