  • If you fail to enter the correct code eight (8) times, the radio goes into INOP mode.

Saturn radio unlock codes

Since 1998, many company's in the automotive industry have relied on our radio unlock code service to get their customers up and running! Now you can get the same great service at! Serving the industry since 1998.

Many Saturn vehicles come equipped with radios that require a special security unlock code. This radio code is not required, unless the radio is removed from the vehicle, or the vehicles battery is disconnected.

Saturn radios are quite different from most other manufacturers, as GM allows you to enter your own code. Most manufacturers will come with the radio security code already stored to into its processor.

Never fear however, if the previous owner has entered their unique personal radio code, our radio code retrieval process will override any other code that has been entered into the unit!

Saturn calls this feature "TheftLock". Its purpose is to prevent unauthorized use of your radio and will not allow your stereo to operate without the proper code.

Saturn began using the antitheft feature, "TheftLock" around the 1990's and is still used in many GM vehicles.

You will find the "TheftLock" radio code feature on most Pontiac, Cadillac, GMC, Chevrolet, Saturn, Geo, Oldsmobile, Hummer and Buick vehicles.
