Radio unlocking and programming $90.00-$170.00
Any time a replacement radio is installed in a 2003 or newer GM truck the radio will lock and not operate. Here at digital-dash-solutions we can successfully unlock and fully program your GM radio or NAV provided it's the correct radio for your truck. Below is a detailed list of the radios and NAV's that can be unlocked and programmed.
Please contact us with the year, make & model of your vehicle before purchasing this service. We can unlock some car radios, contact us with your request. Please be sure the radio you are attempting to install is compatible with your vehicle before you send it to us for unlocking.
Although the radio you are sending may be listed as one we can unlock, this does not mean it will work in your vehicle once unlocked. Compatibility is fully your responsibility.
Information on GM truck radio unlocking & programming...
Unlocking... The VIN (vehicle identification number) is stored in the radio for security reasons. If you install a used radio into your car or truck the VIN in that radio will not match the VIN in the your vehicle, when the VIN doesn't match the radio will lock up and not allow any functions to operate. When we unlock a radio we will clear the VIN so it will automatically learn the VIN of the next vehicle it's plugged into, once the VIN is learned the radio is "married" to that vehicle. Once the radio is "married" it will operate only in that vehicle.
Programming... When we program the radio it will set it up for the country, amplifier type, speaker type and the amount of speakers. The tuner can be set for the following countries: North America, Japan, Europe, China, Israel, Guam and Middle East/Saudi Arabia. The speakers can be set up for the following: Short bed, long bed, utility, extended cab, crew cab & Avalanche. This will assure the balance and fader will work properly.
