Having problems with your 2006 Chevrolet HHR ?
How do I get a Radio Unlock Code?
\015 The original equipment radio in my wife's HHR was dying, so I upgraded her with a used OEM 6-disc version of the same radio and replaced it. The eBay storefront I purchased it from (legit in case you're wondering) said I may or may not need to deactivate the theft code, and lo and behold I do. Is there an easy way to go about this without going through a dealer? I know they're going to make me pay through the nose if they can. I have the VIN number of the donor vehicle, etc. if that's any help.Thanks!\015
These radios vin lock to the vehicle meaning it reads the vin programmed in bcm. it sees the vin in radio is different from car. the only way to fix this is to have the radio reprogrammed this can be donr by a dealer with a tech 2 this is only way to do it there is no code to enter.
You will have to go through the Dealership for this Code. It should be FREE If you just call and Ask for the Parts Desk with Your VIN# and the Serial # off the Head unit. You will find a Lot of Codes online But, If you Enter 3 Incorrect Codes, It will lock you out and then you will have a BIGGER Problem. Be Careful! Please Rate My Response! Thanks!
