Or, if you have a "Theftloc" radio that the lock feature wasn't disabled on before you did the repair you'll need a code to unlock the radio so it will work again. Anytime a Theftloc radio loses power it locks itself to prevent usage if it's stolen. By changing the ignition switch the radio lost power. It probably "thinks" it was being stolen. HTH. -Jim
