Hi my name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist with this today.In some cases I may need more info to assist better.I apologize for any delay.

Your radio has to be set up with a dealers Tech 2 scan tool plugged into your vehicle or anyone else that has the Tech 2 scan tool.Below is the procedure they follow to set this up for you.They may charge anywhere from a half hour to an hours charge to do this.

RADIO SETUP To setup a new radio for the vehicle, complete the setup procedure under the Special Functions menu of the scan tool. If the new radio is not properly setup, the radio will display a locked message (LOC) or Calibrate. IMPORTANT: - The radio set up will configure the following systems: - Steering Wheel Controls - LEARN VIN - Diagnostic Trouble Codes - Class 2 Radio Messages - Without learning the VIN, the radio will display a locked message (LOC).

Unfortunately this isnt like the older radios where a code could be entered to do this.

If more help is needed, use the reply tab to continue our conversation.
