I just bought a 2001 Alero off of a buddy of mine (58K miles for $5K... the car is spotless! ) and was wondering how I could get the Theftlock code for the factory radio. Just in case I have to remove the power from the battery, I want to be able to unlock the radio without having to go to the dealership and pay $20 to have them unlock it for me. I've also heard that the '01 Alero's radio uses the VIN and that the car's computer automatically unlocks it. Any help would be apprecaited. And, if you have info for the same topic, but for a 2000 Bonneville, that would be awesome as well.
