  1. Hi!

    I have a radio that I pulled and replaced from a 2003 Chevrolet S-10 pickup
    truck. The factory radio is one of those types that will supposedly check
    the VIN and lock out if it doesn't match.

    This radio has been sitting in my closet and will probably end up staying
    there...but I was thinking that with all the spare speakers, wire, lumber
    and 12 volt power supplies that I have around that I could build a little
    cabinet for it and make a shop radio out of it...and clean up some of the
    junk that's lying around here in the process!

    I have a pinout of all relevant connections, so that isn't a problem. I just
    need to know if the radio will run as is or if I would have to "fake it out"
    somehow. I've seen pictures of these radios being sold on eBay and run from
    a seemingly regular +12V supply, so there must be a way to do it.

    Anyone know anything about this? (And--no--I did NOT steal the radio..see for the whole story if you
    think so...)

    usually these radios need a code...its should be in your manual that came with
    the car...if you lost the manual and code then your dealer will help you...

    that's the only's anti theft protection.....

    good luck
