We have radio for a short time then it says locked and nothing we push will unlock it . Radio goes out and security message Locked
Oldsmobile Mechanic: david craig, ASE Certified Technician replied 7 months ago

unfortunately, we are not allowed to give out radio codes any longer per Just Answer, due to liability issues. You will need to contact your local dealer and they will be more than happy to help you as long as you provide proof of ownership. Thank you.

The radio also locks. It's definitely an anti thief message. So is that an I don't know?
Oldsmobile Mechanic: david craig, ASE Certified Technician replied 7 months ago

you need to have the radio unlocked by the gm dealer. they have to hook it up to the gm web tech line to do this.

Customer reply replied 7 months ago
I've already called the dealer and the minimum cost is $150. Not worth it. Thought you would have a better solution.
Oldsmobile Mechanic: david craig, ASE Certified Technician replied 7 months ago

you have to have it hooked up to the internet through gms techline connect. how in the world do you expect me to do that for you?
