can I take out my radio that says theftlock,out of my 98 malibu & install new cd on 1998 Chevrolet Malibu

I have a 98 chevy malibu w a radio that has the words theftlock on it.The radio works but I'd like to install a new stereo.Can I just unhook the battery and do the removal/onstallation or will something need to be done first regarding the theftlock?

It's only for the factory radio can install any stereo you want problem!
thanks,I wasn't sure if it was wired to the ignition or something
U welcom.... If you haven't already got the stereo....check out Crutchfields......can't beat them!....they got everything you need to do this install.... And i do mean everything!
I got my pioneer from crutchfield yesterday & put it in,but my fm reception is poor.I didn't do anything w the blue wires because one said sytem remote & the other end of the harness said "power antenna".I think the problem may lie with the ground wire though
Contact Chruchfield...that's another good thing about them....troubleshooting!
