sorry for the delay............
Greetings...... “Hi, I’m Don (aka MOLurch) and I look forward to helping you!”
This is the "cross over year"
Your Saturn Radio "might" have a Code that you can enter OR it "might" only can be done by GM Dealer
Do this:

If the code is unknown, perform the following steps to retrieve the "scrambled" code:

  1. Turn ignition ON.
  2. Turn radio power OFF.
  3. Press and hold preset buttons "1" and "2" for 5-seconds .

A 4-digit code will be displayed.
This number is ***** the UNLOCK code.
Do NOT try to enter any Code, unless you know the correct code, or Radio Lock Up can occur.
Record this number as it is needed before I can get the UNLOCK Code
Post the Number here in order
I will get you the UNLOCK Code, but it will be tomorrow before I can post it
You will need to Accept the "Offer for Premium Service" that I post tomorrow
IF there is NO Scrambled Code numbers, then the Unit will have to be Unlocked via GM Dealer
Let me know what you want to do

If you still need the code, it will be Monday, after you supply the needed info I posted, as Saturn / GM Radio is closed on weekends.......thanks

Your advice did not help me at all. Did not work and got more thorough information and suggestions from nice guys on the internet who try to assist people for FREE. If you can further assist me and get this radio working, I do not mind paying the 26$ I was charged. At this point you have not helped me at all....just wasted my time and money. I will give no additional money, when it appears I will probably have to purchase a new radio and have it installed.

Oh, by the way, the nice guy on the internet even supplied the phone number that you want additional money for me to obtain. Refund my money for get my radio working.

sorry you are confused.........I never mentioned a "phone number"

please reread my you have not given me any information to obtain the code
You either have the Radio that has a "scrambled Code" that I need to get the UNLOCK Code or you don't.......
Follow my instructions I posted & see if there is a "scrambled code"....
When you give me the needed info, I will help
Also, this is not a "FREE" site, & you apparently know that by the Deposit you posted

IF you would like help with this, I will get you the UNLOCK Code when you supply me with the info I asked for, otherwise, ask customer service for REFUND

let me know what you want to do.
