If you take the car to a dealer they can plug it in to a scan tool and get the codes by calling into GM and inputting them into the stereo for you[was no cost when I asked]. The code is made up from the vehicles VIN. I am assuming they plug in the scan tool to verify the radio is from the car it is in and not stolen.

If you are asking about how to get a stock stereo to unlock it's own security system once you've dicsonnected and re-connected the battery, then I recommend that you stop by any GM dealership. It takes them about thirty seconds to get the code that they need and about thirty more to get the stereo working again. It's usually free, why not let the pros do it?
