Customer Question
I have a 2006...

I have a 2006 pontiac g6 gt with a LOCK radio. The previous owner told me he had switched out the battery and the radio got locked. He referred me to a specialist that would charge 35$. I looked up codes and tricks and nothing works.

Mechanic's Assistant: How many miles are on the car? Has this ever happened before?

227307 & no jus this time he said

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your G6 GT yourself? What have you tried so far?

Yes. I tried the press & hold 1 & 2 untill 3 diget numbers come on then to input the 1st 3 of the identification number. Then again with the last 3 digets of the identification number.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

I jus tried looking for the microchip theft lock and couldnt find it
