Locked Chevrolet Malibu Maxx Radio

how do I get my raido off lock and have it read in english

You might try opening your owners manual and looking up “radio” to see how to do that. If the radio is “locked”, you may need to punch in a security code to unlock it. How to obtain that code should also be in your owners manual.

Since 2000, all GM radios require a factory scan tool to unlock them.

The VIN is programmed into the radio so it recognizes the vehicle, so radio will operate.

The dealer will charge about $50.00 to unlock the radio.
