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

Rookie cbe0621eac06868b3efe0d8d1d3611e23c60d3114864ea2ec19a68cfbd3eebab
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 itself........you can install any stereo you want to.....no problem!
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
