Is there a way I can leave it unlocked before I remove it?

If not does the new buyer need my VIN? I found other posts saying you just need to hook it up and then take it to the dealer to get it unlocked.

When the radio is installed into the new vehicle the radio will request the VIN via data communications and compare the VIN stored in memory to what the vehicle reports. If they do not match, then it goes into lock mode. The only way it can be unlocked is to program the radio via a Tech2 to learn the new VIN to store.

The radio cannot be cleared of the previous VIN prior to removal. The radio will need to learn the new VIN anyway via the Tech2 once installed so it would be a moot point anyway of clearing it before hand (if it could be done).

THanks guys, I just sold it on ebay - I hope the new owner knows what he is doing. The Buyer who wanted the VIN didn't win it...
