Good luck!
Most dealerships do not want to type a few simple codes into their computers to access the codes. Lazy, stupidity, just plain ignorant...who knows.

I tried the following link once, but got nowhere because the GTO's radio is obviously newer than 2003 : http://www.radio-code.com/GM-Pay-Page-radio-code.htm

You'll need the VIN out of the car it came from. If you get the one from the dealer matching your car, it's the wrong radio. You'll either need the security card from the car the radio came from or you might be better off to call Blaupunkt to get the code. As far as I know, GM's system doesn't reference off any of the codes on the back of the radio. You could just have the dealer do it though as I think they can code them together using a Tech2 even without the security code. I'm sure they'll want in the ballpark of at least $75. Don't quote me on this part, I don't know for sure the Tech2 can do it.

As far as getting info from the dealer on your car, all you need is a DL and registration. That shows ownership.

If you need to get the code from one of those older radios on that site, there is plenty of info on how to get it for free.. 7 bucks is a total ripoff.

Can you post a link?
Most of the sites I've tried take me nowhere.

If I buy another stock radio with the unlock code, I will write the code on the metal frame of the radio with a black permanent marker. I mean, really...who wants to steal the stock radio from our cars?? Aftermarket radio's, DVD players, GPS's, etc. is the craze now.

Sorry if im the only one that feels this way, but if u bought a replacement radio for your gto and you didnt bother to ask for the code, which you know the gto has a coded radio as a anti theft feature. it kinda just throws a red flag to me, plus with your only 1 post. it makes me not want to help.

thats simply because they have no way of knowing if its a stolen radio. its the same with getting a new key cut. if you cant provide the right documents, there not gonna help, and i dont blame them. thats how it should be.

I too have the same problem. I took mine to the dealership and when I went to pick it up, $90 later, after you enter the code every time you turn it on, the radio just flashes for three minutes and then shuts off. The dealer gave me the impression they don't know how to fix it. Help!

Good lord.

I just went yesterday to a GM dealer here and he gave me an entire printout of key code, frequency code, trunk code, radio pin for free. You should take it back and tell him it did not work. Try and get a refund.

Guys are right though, there is some kind of posting in the dealerships now i think that are saying you have to provide proof of ownership before they will give you any codes at all. In both the ones I have been too anywayz..

Lmao you paid $90 for them to give you the "test" code that code will work with all locked GTO radios but as you can see it's only good to test the unit. Man I would firebomb that place

I already spent another 80 at the radio shop to diagnose the problem in the original unit too. Ugh!
