Default Using Tahoe CD Player in another automobile?

Hello all,

After having my stereo stripped from my car AGAIN I decided that was enough, I am not dumping hundreds to thousands into my cars anymore for music.

I started my hunt for the best stock/OEM system I could find for a decent price.

The tahoe comes with a great looking base cdplayer, the best I have found thus far readily available for $50-100.

The problem is the deeper I look into it the more issues I see coming up.

The wiring harness it uses looks to be pretty standard and I think I should be able to find the wiring diagram, the issue I am worried about is the Theft Lock.

I would only be using the required terminals on the cd player (power,speakers,ground ect) but it appears it verifys the VIN somehow and if that doesn't match it will lock up, does anyone know if this can be bypassed or if it just doesn't get a vin signal will it still lock?

This cd player also looks basically the same as a few other cars including the cobalt, does anyone know if they all share the same theft lock system?

When I had my 04 Denali it came with the navigation/radio but then a year later the 05 NAV. was touch screen. So I bought one of of eBay and took it to the dealer because it had to be programmed, it cost like $100.
So your dealer can do it they call it a Tech 2 tool they used for mine. Now I have a 07 Denali and love it.
