How Do I Unlock a 2007 Silverado Radio?

I have a 2007 Silverado that did not have the factory radio so I purchased one from a salvage yard. I sent the truck and the radio to Bolivia. They plugged it in and it says "Locked". I called the dealer and they want me to bring it in but the truck is actually in Bolivia, South America and there are no dealers there. I have to foward any info that I found there to the owner of the truck. Can anyone help with this?

man it looks like you are screwed, all new radios are being made so if they ever get stolen they can not work on any car, unless taken to the dealer and they can program the radio but it needs to be installed, in other words you need to bring the truck in to the dealer so they can program the radio.
or go aftermarket, is so much easy and almost anybody can hook them up!

with the vehicle running, try pressing and holding the radio power button down for several seconds and see if the radio comes out of theft lock....

Hi ericnotteling
They are 20x9 LoneStar wheels, on 285/50R20 no need for a leveling kit or a lift with this set up
I got them on ebay for $688 shipped!!!
from a seller named wheelindex here's a link to the seller

wheelindex

I just checked his online store and I didn't see the same wheels but they have some others that look kind of the same, and prices are good too

take a look at their store and see if you find some nice wheels for your ride.





sorry I just got carried away!!!
