: Radio off Ebay

03-26-05, 09:54 AM
If I buy a radio off E-Bay (factory Cadillac) how do I turn off the theft lock. I need to take my car in for the fuel rail recall, can they do it at the dealer? I'll ask this one more time too (this will be the third time). If I use an aftermarket amp and speakers in my non bose '97 STS will this radio work? I really want the RDS and CD/Cassette combo. Is the pigtail the same? All I want is the radio to function as a pre-amp, so basically I just need it to power up recieve am/fm signals and work my factory CD changer and have my steering wheel controls work. Does anyone have the wiring diagram for this radio and for my '97? If I need to re-wire it I can do that.

How do they know if it does work if it's locked?A dealer can unlock it but it will cost you, if it comes back stolen then that's another problem.

Need the old vehicle's VIN # to unlock it most of the time
