How to Unlock a swapped CTS stereo console??
I bought my CTS over a month ago, the CD player was jammed and the dealer was too cheap to buy me a new one under my 30 day warranty, so he swapped it with another 03 CTS he got on the lot a month later...
They switched them today, and now they are BOTH locked and neither car seems to have the info/code to unlock them....
How would I go about getting this, and can I do it myself or would I have to take it into see GM??
The dealer ought to know how to do this. He hooks up a Tech2 programmer, and simply clears the VIN from the radio. Once that's done, the next time the radio is turned on, it saves the VIN from the CAN bus into memory, and it's 'married' to the car until the next time it's cleared. It can't be cleared any other way. Any GM dealer will have a Tech2. It doesn't need to be a Cadillac dealer.
