does the 2011 require radio or head unit unlock code if the battery is unpluged?

i know most 2000+ cars require a unlock code when you unplug the battery and replug it in. my dealer did not give me a code. so i was wondering if the new camaros require such code? thanks

No,It goes by your VIN....


Theft Deterrent

The radio theft deterrent system is intended to disable or limit radio functionality if incorrect vehicle information is received by the radio. The radio disables functionality if the VIN information received by the radio does not match the VIN information that has been learned by the radio. The radio receives this information via serial data. A possible cause of incorrect VIN info could be the radio was originally installed in another vehicle.
The radio has the following theft operating modes as part of the theft deterrent system:
• Normal Mode: The radio has learned a correct VIN sequence and the VIN information received via serial data matches the learned VIN sequence. In this mode the radio has full functionality.
• No VIN Mode: The radio has not received or learned a correct VIN sequence. In this mode the radio has limited functionality.
• Theft Detected Mode: The radio has learned a correct VIN sequence and the VIN information received via serial data does NOT match the learned VIN sequence. In this mode the radio may be disabled or have limited functionality. The radio display will indicate that theft protection is active.
