radio locked

I didn"t get an owners manual with my recent purchase of the 96 Saturn. Apparantly after replacing the battery the radio went to LOC mode and is useless at this point. I did get the four digit serial #, now I need the code to unlock it. Saturn wants $30.00 to give me the code to unlock. Anybody have any ideas on saving money for this?

Have you looked in the owners manual? There is a sequence of buttons you press on the radio, I don't recall which, and the radio will display a 4 digit code. You will then have to call Saturn with this code and they will give you another code to unlock the radio. I believe you will have to take this to a dealer to make the call.

I believe you have to let the car run for an hour and then the code can be entered. A guy I work with went through this with his Grand Am.
