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.

ANSWER:

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.

Answer:
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.
