Default Radio locked

I am buying a 95 se and the radio says loc on it. I can tell they put a new battery in it. Is this something a dealer has to do or is there a way for me to unlock it.

If a dealer has to do it, i will make sure they get it unlocked before the final sale.

Yeah, I was reading all the Tech info for this year. that will be the first thing I take care of. Will probably do the uim and lim just to be safe. Engine was clean on top and no signs of leaks.

That seems like a lot of money..especially since I was only able to sell my immaculate 97 SLE w/ 80k for $2,700 after two months of trying to sell it.
