Some trucks and gm cars have two kinds of systems one without a amp,and one without so judging by what you're saying you probably have one with a amp so yes you can but it is complicated and you would need to bypass amp so just get the kit that's required for your vehicle.
if I'm not mistaken, the dash face is held on solely by clips (there may be 1 Philips head in the cubby)... start at the bottom (gently tugging) and work your way to the top. The radio is held in by 2 (10mm screws). If your using and aftermarket kit, make sure you cut the correct tabs off, you might have to add some washer to align it properly. often aftermarket kits will be slightly skewed, unfortunately there is no easy quick fix for that... if you have anymore questions let me know...
Likely it's not much different than ones just a bit older...remove the bottom panel and any screws along the bottom of the plastic dash face plate. The top is held on with clips and it should pull out, exposing the radio mounts. Go from there. They make a face plate adapter for the radio and a harness extension to help with wiring, available where they sell aftermarket radios.
i have a 2002 ford escape and i bought a double din radio and it did not fit and found out it is actually a din and 3/4 with out serious mods (cutting a bigger hole in dash) double din wont fit i bought a single din stereo and a din a 3/4 dash kit works fine
I work at a Chrysler Jeep dealer and sell parts, and I'm sorry to tell you but this is a little problem we have run into many times with these vehicles. The factory speakers are **** and of course we have no wiring diagrams showing how to install aftermarket speakers without replacing the head unit with an aftermarket one. I just had to do this with my Mitsubishi Galant when I bought some Focal component speakers for my doors. I went with the Alpine radio and it seems very nice and I think it will do great for your speakers also. Hope this helped.
hi there. I am not sure about the speakers. But there is a wiring harness available for a aftermarket head unit. I have a '97 sentra the base model XE version. I have just put in an alpine head unit and you defenately hear the difference even on factory speakers. But you will need 2 kits to install an aftermarket head unit in the car. 1. A dash kit. I got mine from canadian tire for about 20 bucks, it comes with instructions on how to put it together and its straight forward, just make sure u get the one for your year and make of car.
2. The wiring harness. there available at mostly every car audio place for about 10 bucks. again make sure u get the one for your year make and model of car. installing this is difficult so unless your good at electronics get it professionally installed. you have to splice the wires into the back of the aftermarket unit, then the plugs plug right into your existing factory car harness.
hope this solves your problem, the dash kit is easy to put together and install into the car, but the wiring harness is a bit difficult, i had my harness installed for about 40 bucks and u save money if u put the dash kit togehter yourself because thats 1 less thing they have to do. good luck.
You have to run wires and antenna wire to trunk from head unit pull down the flap where the amp is and unplug the factory plug from the stereo think box is what i call it its the unit in front of the amp you will need to unplug the larger of the plugs it has like 10 wires in it and then unplug the antenna wire and you will connect it to the antenna wire you you ran back to the trunk do not splice any wires if you get a wiring kit for it it should have evrything you need
I cant really assist in this matter but I can let you know that I have a system in my 2006 Chevy Cobalt and that I have an aftermarket cd player installed. I had to pay $130 for a special adapter for it to be wired into the system because GM's newest idea of installing the stereo and airbags on the same wire scheme, is kind of a dumb idea.
