Hey folks,

Just started driving my brothers wrecked and rebuilt 08 cobalt. I plan on doing a few things to it but first off my radio is locked. I already called the dealer and they quoted 160 bucks to unlock it. ridiculous...

I would tend to listen to tem but my dad suggested I ask the other professionals(you guys) first if they knew of any other way to unlock it.

Another friend suggested I just purchase an aftermarket stereo.

Any advice is appreciated

Kyle

To get an aftermarket radio to work is going to cost you a lot more than 160 to unlock it... Does it display anything? You could try pulling the fuse and disconnecting the battery for a while and see what that does

I'm pretty sure you need tech 2 software to do it, but than again I could be very wrong.
I do agree that purchaseing an aftermarket one would be more expensive.

There's a thread on here that shows which chip to clip out to unlock your radio. Just a matter of searching for it.
