From another Aveo forum--

"I joined this site ONLY to say thanks to the person who listed the codes for GM Chevy Aveo radio. I also was frustrated with the dealerships, who did not provide a code upon the sale (bought used) and wanted to charge me $99 to get the code for me, after my battery died. I tried the codes and one worked!!!!

I think a radio thief could have gotten this code with less frustration than I had. In my opinion it is just another way for the dealership to make money."

Check your manual for the steps to enter the code.

Thanks for the codes. We had the same problem with a used 04 Aveo I bought for my daughter. Took less than 2 minutes to get the right one.

I have a 2004 Chevy Aveo. I bought it for my daughter about 2 years ago, she mentioned that the radio didn't work prior to moving to California. I recently removed it and noticed the wires cut "yes, I can imagine" one of her friends tried fixing it.

I have connected all the wires and the radio lights up when I turn on the headlights but no display for me to even try inputting a code. Any help would be appreciated. Oh I also decided to purchase a new radio and connected all the wires and a no go.

Fuses are good, just no idea what the heck I need to do.

My vehicle is a 2004 Chevy Aveo LS hatchback. My radio did same thing end of last year. Try these codes below and instructions. Mine was 2152.

1156, 1165, 1325, 2145, 2151, 2152,
2253, 2346, 2453, 2654, 3116, 3221,
3241, 3251, 3265, 3346, 3451, 3462,
4136, 4314, 4316, 4362, 4513, 4524,
4853, 5241, 5253, 5312, 5436, 5445,
5624, 5813, 6361, 6451, 6645, 8253

1. Turn the ignition to ACC or On Mode.
2. Turn the radio on look at disolay to see if AF or COdE appears on screen. If AF (go to step 3) and if COdE (go to step 4)
3.Enter AF Code (Usually Zipcode from dealership purchased from)by pushing the preset pushbuttons. COdE will then flash on the display.
4.Enter one of the codes from above if it flashes 3 times then it's the correct code if Err appears then within a few SEC's thennit incorrect move to next code.

If incorrect AF code is entered an incorrect frequency level may be chosen and the radio reception may be affected if this occurs reset the audio system by removing and reinstalling the audio fuse then repeat steps 1 through 4. Hopefully this will work. Good Luck.
