Unlocking a Radio That Displays LOC When Code is Unknown
IMPORTANT: Starting in 1995, a factory back-up code can be used to erase the original code if it is unknown.
Have account number ready to enter when asked. Account number is your five digit dealer code followed by one of these numbers:
* Chevrolet - 1
* Pontiac -2
* Oldsmobile -3
* Buick -4
* Cadillac -6
* GM Canada -7
* Saturn -8
Read all steps before starting the procedure.
If more than 15 seconds elapse between any of the steps, the radio automatically reverts to time and you must start the procedure over from step 1. In order to unlock the Theftlock(TM) system when code is unknown, perform the following steps:
1. Press and hold push buttons 2 and 3 until a three digit code appears on the display.
2. Write the three digit code on a piece of paper.
3. Press the AM/FM push button, a three digit code will appear on the display again.
4. Write the three digit code on a piece of paper.
5. Call Delco Electronics at 1-800 - 537 - 5140.
6. Follow the computer prompts to obtain the back-up code to be used in place of unknown code.
7. Press MN and 000 will appear on the display.
8. Press and hold MN until the last two digits agree with the back-up code.
9. Press and hold HR until the first one or two digits agree with the back-up code.
10. Press the AM/FM push button after you have confirmed that the code matches the one you wrote down. If REP appears on the display, repeat steps 7 through 10.
11. The display will show "- - -" to indicate unknown code has been removed.
If the back-up code does not unlock the radio, try reversing the first and last three digits of the display code.

Don't know for sure, but wouldn't you be able to get to it by dropping the transmission instead?

Yes you R&R the transmission and either clutch or flexplate depending on transmission.
Book says that for manual transmission it takes a professional mechanic with all the lifts, tools, etc. about 3.6 hours and for the automatic, about 6.5 hours.

#520 of 607 2005 Suburban wiper blade replacement
Jan 22, 2010 (11:13 am)
Dumb question. First time to change blades on this car. Wipers don't pull far away enough from windshield to allow for existing blade to be turned away from the windshield. Tried turning wipers on and off again. What am I missing here?

I have a 2001 Tahoe that seems to have the same problem. When stopping at slow speeds the ABS turns on and it is annoying. I called Checy and of course my vehicle was not eligible for the recall. My question to you is: Did you try shooting some brake cleaner and blow some compressed air to see if this would fix your problem of did you just go out and purchase the new sensor. Was it the process of elimination that caused you to make your decision OR did you just gather some informaiton and change the sensors? How did you determine it was the wheel hub bearing? Anyhow, did you do any other maintenance while you installed the wheel hub bearing? Thank you for any input. I'll assume that the recall was for the year 1999 to 2001 so it would be pretty much the same process as far as repair.
#522 of 607 97 suburban bucking when warm
Mar 28, 2010 (6:18 am)
I have a 1997 chevy suburban k2500 and I've been having this bucking/ hesitation problem for alittle over a year now, when the vehicle is cold driving there is no bucking or anything but when it starts to get warmer it will buck when I accelerate from a stop. It also tends to buck when I'm on the highway cruising at 55 and even at 70. I'v changed the fuel pump, fuel filter, air filter, pcv valve, spark plugs, plug wires, cap and rotor. Intake manifold looks pretty gummed up in there. Could it be that? I'v used injector cleaner and all that too but nothing seems to work. I dont tow anything but I have pulled a couple of cars out of ditches even so I dont think it's the transmission. I can't imagine what it would be so any input or suggestions would be great.
