Theft lock was designed so that, if the feature is not turned off, any time the radio loses power it will lock. A security code is needed to unlock it. You may be able to go to your local Chevy Dealer with your vehicle identification number and proof of ownership (registration and driver's license) to get the code to unlock it. HTH. -Jim
