For $12, you can get the code here: ...or you may have to take the radio out and get the serial number off the back...get all numbers..maybe take a picture with your phone, the go to the Dealer, with your ID and they will get the code, probably free ..also you can try this: ...but that one something just does not seem right..but who knows? may work

Help me

So I have to take radon out

No press and hold the 2 and 3 button on radio your first code will pop up. Then hit am/fm button 2nd code will pop up. Then call 18005375140. It's free it asks for a code...... the code for a chevy is 106010# then it will ask you for the 6 digit codes you have. It will give you the code free to unlock it. My codes were 342 and 353 and my unlock code was 0144 hope this helps.
