Hey everyone, I'm absolutely brand new to this website so I apologize if I format anything wrong, or if this is the wrong place to post this.

I just got my first car, it is the Bonneville listed in the title, although it has several issues I am working to fix, one of which being the Radio Theft Deterrent feature. The previous owner set a password on the radio and I am unable to access the vehicles audio features, I have read through the manual and if I can remember correctly, it is a four digit password. The Radio has buttons for numbers 1-6, I am thinking I might be able to guess the combination in numerical order? For example, 1111, 1112, 1113, so on and so forth.

Is there a simpler way to unlock the audio features? I would love to know. The radio also does not display any lights or anything, i'm not sure exactly how this system works so I figured I would create an account to ask those who would know best.

Here you go.

If that doesn't work, google "pontiac radio security hotline" and keep going down the list of links.

Hey thank you so much man. I really appreciate this a whole lot.

This is a very confusing process, and I don't really understand why these measures are in place, but I should be able to figure it out using this guide. One question though, on my Pontiac the Radio doesn't display or turn on. I wonder if it's disconnected or something. We've been using a Bluetooth speaker like a bunch of bums cause I have been told many times that it is "impossible to use the radio"

Thanks for the link

The bulb is probably burnt out. That's also a pretty common issue and you can definitely find info on replacing that bulb via Google.
