You can get a $100 bill out of it or more on Ebay easily, even though they have the security lock function. Any dealer can unlock one.

Chevy GMC 2003-2005 Truck Factory OEM Radio AM FM CD Player used oem
2003-2005 Chevy GMC Truck AM FM Radio Factory OEM CD Player Part Number 10357894 | eBay

Millions of those trucks are still on the road and most owners are really only interested in having the stock one replaced when one craps out.

This isn't true at all. Anyone that has one of the higher end automotive scanners can learn the vin to the radio in about 2-3 minutes. I do it all the time with my snap-on, solus ultra.

What's this about radio VINs? I never knew there was such a thing. The original OEM radio in my 1990 Chrysler Town & Country went out about a year ago and a radio/audio shop couldn't find the needed parts. They found a re- conditioned one and it worked fine. Just plugged it in.

I never was asked for the vans VIN nor did the shop require it.

Put it on Flea-Bay and sell it. I bet it goes quick.

I sold an old AM Bowtie radio in Flea-Bay for 200 bucks. It was on my shelf in the garage forever collecting dust so I chanced it on FB and made out. Turned out it was for a 57 Chevy.

Didn't know, I'm not a Chevy person and I don't do old cars. Don't even know how I got it....

On gm vehicles there is a theft feature that requires learning the vin of the vehicle it is placed in if it was in another unit.
Im not sure that a radio that old, and that style has to have it done. I know the older nav radios did though. I program the newer 07 and up gm radios quite frequently.
You just go into the radio module area on a scan tool, and then you go into a certain area and hit the vin learn button on the screen.

Honda has a 6 digit code you have to enter on their radios if the battery goes dead or is removed. Or if you don't know the code you can call a dealership parts dept and give them the radio serial # and they can give you the code (or at least they give that info to repair shops)

I dont know what other makes take or have for a similar feature. Gm and honda are the ones that I've had the most dealings with.

I imagine that almost anything for a 57 Chevy is valuable to that car's owners.

Thanks - I didn't know that until now. I knew that re-programming of some components is necessary after the battery is disconnected and reconnected.

I guess that I have to do that procedure if the radios in our 2015 Impala and 2016 Buick Envision ever go bad.

Thanks again.

Thanks for the replies! A very interesting discussion and I learned some
stuff too!

FYI- I followed the Ebay link and saw that radio listing but it's not sold...
IF you click the little word "advanced" next to the search button at the
top of most Ebay pages you can do an advanced search! (imagine that!)
I searched for sold items using the key words 2003-2005 Chevy GM OEM radio

I got a few hits of actual sold radios. Most were guaranteed and unlocked and under $100. One used - untested went for $28 plus shipping.
How do they unlock them ahead of time??

I'll have to think about it.... sort of a hassle.... getting ready to bug out....
mind is cluttered.... I need coffee!
Thinking I'll just give it to a member who'll give it a good home and
forgetaboutit.

Thanks again for the input!

So I landed here!

I just changed out the original factory radio in my 04 Chevy Silverado.
It works as good as new but is just AM/FM/CD.

I swapped it for a new JVC that has blue tooth, siriusXM, usb and understands mp3.

I wonder if my old radio would have any value to someone? I'm not trying to make money off it. I just hate to toss it in the landfill or junk it a the next
electronics recycle event in my neighborhood.

I know if it were me on the other end, I would not want it as new much better (more features) radio/players are so affordable now days.
If it was really old I could see someone doing a restore might want it but this doesn't sound likely for an 04 model.

Thoughts?
Try this; locate chevy forum, silverado offer radio there. They pay shipping.
