Hummer radio wont work


If you have swapped out your old factory radio with another factory radio from a different unit, it will not work. It is coded to the VIN#, Just to replace a radio at the dealer you must link up and download the current configuration from the old unit using the GM TECH-II, then remove the old unit and install the new one, upload the old config files to the new unit and hope it works. Sometimes it doesn't and you have to keep swapping units back and forth to download and upload and eventually maybe getting a successful upload. If all your doing is replacing the factory unit with another factory unit, it will work if you take it to a dealer and they do the process explained above. Just don't throw out your old radio, they will need it because all of your old config files are still in it!
I hope this info helps!~subyguru~

What's a good after market radio for a 2005 impala


there are 100's of replacement radios for vehicles, what you need to keep in mind is,,, if your factory radio has the vehicle info on the radio screen, its connected to the computer and all that goes along with it, I have an 02 Malibu, and had a new radio installed, But they had to route wiring to the trunk, ( thats where they put the factory radio and wired it in ) so that all my factory functions still worked, I was a little displeased with Chevy for having this attached to a radio, and since the CD player stopped working in the original, I was able to purchase a new radio, amp , and have it and the old one installed , rewired, and it still cost me less than Chevy wanted for a replacement of the old radio, Just due to the CD not working, so be sure and check around when looking for a replacement,

How do I remove the radio from my 2002 chrysler voyager ?


The one piece face (trim plate) must be removed first. This is a pop off design so be careful to lightly pry up the edges to release...you will need to unplug the lighter etc...Just 4 bolts hold the factory unit in place...after removing these 4 bolts you can pull the radio forward so you can unplug the factory wiring harness...(2 connections) and you should be able to reach behind the radio to unplug the antennae. If you are replacing the factory radio, you should invest in the necessary changeover radio that you are using...For a smooth replacement it is highly recommended to use all of the factory wiring to insure safety, and performance. Hope this helps.

Looking for a wire diagram to hook up a aftermarket sterio from factory on a 2001 chev malibu


In this car you will need an stereo adapter. Some functions of the cars warning system are in the radio. You use this adapter to replace the factory radio. The adapter facilitates replacement of a factory radio while retaining all factory safety warning chimes and audible turn signal indicators. These adapters are compatible with amplified and non-amplified audio systems. Will retain all safety warning chimes. See this web site for more info. Autosound Central. With the right adapter you do not need a wiring diagram. It will be plug and play.

I have a 2005 malibu and want to replace my radio but keep my mileage and information screen, how can I do this.


assuming info screen is in the factory radio
couple ways of doing this
first and easiest is leave factory radio in place
and find a location for new radio (in glove box, under dash, (under seat if have remote) then just remove speaker wires from factory radio and install on aftermarket radio then run power and ground to aftermarket radio

option two
relocate factory radio to trunk or under seat (problem with this method is u have to look in trunk or under seat to read gas millage or info )
u will need to lengthen the data wires and run them to the new location of factory radio

I have a 99 gmc and i want to take the factory radio out but it has theft lock and i'm not sure how to get it out, got any ideas?


theft lock is an electric code that keeps the radio from working if the power is disconnected you must reprogram your code to work again if theft lock is not programed by the owner it needs no code to work if you are going to replace it with an after market radio it is mute any way

1997 Honda Civic EX Keyless entry programming


If you still have the factory radio, there is a way to split the power wire for the factory radio to the aftermarket radio. All you will need are the power and ground for your aftermarket radio, so the rest of the wires should be untouched on the plug for the factory radio. You can simply re-install the radio within the dash and retain the keyless entry as well as restoring your dome light function. Here's a PDF of some instructions. If you did not keep the radio, I would suggest looking online or ins ome junk yards, because it is needed. www.installdr.com/InstallDocs/Honda/PDF/466013.pdf
