Hello
Oldsmobile Mechanic: Gary, ASE Certified Technician replied 2 years ago

can you do this and give me the 6 digit number code ?

1. Turn the ignition ON (The radio should display “LOC”)

2. Hold down the Radio Presets 2 and 3 buttons for six seconds

3. The radio display changes from LOC to a three-digit number. Write this number down. You now have fifteen seconds to complete the next step.

4. Press the AM/FM button

5. The radio display changes to another three-digit number. Write this number to the right of the first one.

6. You now have a six-digit number, the first three digits are from STEP 03 and the last three digits are form STEP 05

Oldsmobile Mechanic: Gary, ASE Certified Technician replied 2 years ago

tell me them OR follow this with the numbers to get the code to unlock as seen below

IF it still strays locked then one of 2 things is happening the speed gauge is wired in wrong or is tapped into the radio wires and locking it or too many unlock attempts have been made which you need to leave the key on for ! hour then try to get the 6 digits to gt the unlock code
