Did her battery go dead? As far as I know, only the dealership can pull up the unlock code. However, I'm told the code stays the same, at least for Honda's radios, so you can write it down and try using the same code the next time that happens.

Hmm...might want to check the fuse box for moisture. The Cavaliers weren't known for stellar electronics, but I had hoped that they sorted that out for the Cobalts.

I think that Delco Electronics stole the design from Lucas Electrics...

Know what I mean?

She probably just reached her Govt. Motors monthly allowable radio listening quota. Just wait, it will reset on it's own at Midnight the first of the month.

:whistle: hehe

the cobalt head units have to be unlocked at the dealer, using a mmm I think its called a gm tech tool 2? Something like that. The HU is vin locked (i think) to that car, so even swapping a stock for stock wont work and they need to be brought to the dealer to be "unlocked".

delco is their team leader. he decides what radios the gremlins fix, and which ones are not worth saving.
