Oldsmobile Silhouette Radio Locked And Transmission Code P1811

Oldsmobile Silhouette GLS. ABS light. I bought this vehicle 2nd hand. Regular maintenance performed.I just purchased and this vehicle has minor issues, the radio is in locked position and I believe it is because the engine had to be jump started when we purchased. It had been sitting idle for a few months and may need a battery. Drove it for 1.5 hrs runs great.

How can I unlock the factory installed radio,cd,cassette without PAYING AN ARM AND A LEG??? Help. It was the quietest ride I have ever been on. Thanks in advance.

Yes, these are great minivans. Very quiet with a great ride. I actually own a 2001 Chevy Venture, nice ride, but not as good as the Oldsmobile.

Anyway, to unlock the radio, you will need to have it unlocked with a dealer scanner. These are not like the older models where you can enter a radio code. Expect to pay 1/2 hour labor for this service.

2001 Oldsmobile Silhouette Engine light code P1811. Why does my trans slipping when shifting from 1st to 2nd gear.O.K. After warms up.I took it to a Cottman transmission dealer and the code was p1811.

They said they would have to do a software rebuild--clutches and whatever else. Will tis take care of the problem? NO check engine lite came onever.

Yes, most likely the clutch plate material has come apart on the 2nd clutch assembly. P1811 is component slipping. The transmission would have to come out and disassembled.
