The radio will need to be unlocked by dealer with scantool, there is no way around it. The Vin needs to be reprogrammed into the radio, they will charge around $60 for this. The vibration usually means wheels need to be balanced or you have a failing axle. If vibration seems to stop when letting off gas this means axle is worn. If vibration continues when letting off gas then have the wheels balanced. My goal is to provide 5 star service so please let me know if there is anything else I can do to help, thanks.
