Long thread. Read the whole thing as there appears to be some differences in the specific years (and it's a little old)?

there's a number to call a guess for this? but the posting is old when the saturn dealers were still in operation. hopefully the number isn't one of them otherwise there's a problem.

Yes it still does. That's why I said to read the whole thread. The valid account codes have changed over time. 800-537-5140 and enter 106010* as soon as it answers. I just tried it and it got me to the enter radio code prompt.

Hey Off track.
I also have a 2001 with a code issue with the radio.
I have had no luck with holding down the preset buttons. Nothing happend.
Radio says LOCK...

No one from chevy seems to be any help.
Called the customer support # also. They gave me A # of a dealer in tenn. He was no help. he said bring car to a gm dealer.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

Default Re: radio unlock code

Is this what you tried?
----
1. Turn the ignition ON.
2. Turn the radio power OFF.
3. While pressing and holding presets 1 and 2 for 5 seconds, a 4-digit number will appear on the radio display. This 4-digit number is not the same as the customer's stored 4-digit code, but is needed before technical support is called.
4. Record this number. It is the radio display code.
5. Call the technical support system at 1-888-225-2306, using a touch-tone telephone.
a. Your retailer code,
b. The 4-digit radio display code obtained in step 4.
c. In response, you will receive the factory unlock code. Record this number.
