Radio problem with my 2003 Chevrolet Impala.
Question = I need my radio unlock code.
I purchased an original Radio CD cassette player
for the 2003 Impala. I had the mechanic replace
the radio and now it displays a message
"LOCKED" The mechanic says that the dealer has
to provide me with the code to unlock the radio. I
called the dealer and the dealer wants a $100.00
to unlock the radio. He says that he has to take the
and reinstall it again so that he can see the VIN
number that the radio came off. The place that
sold me radio says that the VIN number that radio
came from is listed on the receipt. I checked the
receipt it sure is listed there. Is there anyway that I
could get the code myself without having to pay
the dealer $100.00.
Hello and welcome.
On this vehicle, there is no security code to enter
for the radio. This system looks at the vehicle VIN
# and matches it to the radio. After a radio is
replaced, the radio must be programmed to the
vehicle. This can only be done with a dealer

Repairs done prior = Just regular maintenance
I changed the remote batteries.
Question = I have the same problem as the one listed below, but I
have more miles on my vehicle. Is this problem covered under the
100,000 mile transmission warranty? If not, I am guessing that
they would want an arm and a leg for this repair. Probably not
worth the money is my guess. What do you think?
Yes, it sounds like this is your problem. Being a 2007, and that
there is a bulletin, the dealer may offer some assistance with this
repair. Also, depending on your VIN#, your car may be under a
recall for similar problems that would be of no cost to you; that will
also repair the remote problem
