Default Theftlock red light on

I have owned this car since new and have disconnected the battery countless times. This time, the theftlock light is on solid red. Light has never come on. I assume, next time I disconnect battery, stereo will lock and i don't have a code.

Understand you can call GM at 1-800-537-5140 and then enter the Pontiac division dealer code followed by the radio serial number code.

Problem is i don't know the pontiac dealer code. The radio code is easy to get off the display.

Anyone know the dealer code to enter.

thanks

i took the stereo out and re-installed it at least 3 times, and unhooked the battery many more... never had an issue with my 97.
sorry i can't help

Whew!!! Got the light to extinguish by setting a sec code and then going thru the disarming procedure. Really thought I'd be locked out if I even tried to attempt.

Happy camper now.
