: Unlocking stock navigation...bought a used one

11-16-04, 02:03 AM
A friend of mine bought a used navigation system for his 04 lade off ebay. It wont work in the truck and the stealership wants an arm/leg to "unlock" it for this vehicle. I think it just needs the vin reprogrammed in it or something. Anyone got a shortcut for this?

There is no short cut. The radio has to have the Vin removed by the use of a Tech II programmer that only dealers have. They cost around 3k. From what I have read dealers charge about 25 to 35 dollors to do this. Keep in mind it only takes about 2 minutes to perform this funtion.
