Did the stock radio have security system in it.if it did you need part to bypass security system.

It did but I threw the radio out. Where do I get the part?

It ended up being a crappy replacement key that I had made at the hardware store. My original key works fine, so I tossed the key out and no more problems. Lesson learned get originals keys duplicated at the GM dealer not hardware store.
