The reset for the radian/cd to work needs to be done by the dealer.

either your connectors need cleaning or maybe a break in the wiring. Is there on spot where both wires come together if so check there.If there is any plugs, pull them apart and clean them with contact cleaner

After Market Radio Installation


Hey man, you have an amplified system. use a 70-1858 wiring harness and jump the blue/white wire from the aftermarket radio to the pink wire on the second plug. this will power on the factory amp with the aftermarket radio.

Thebestplayert@269My Factory Radio display has stop working.But it still plays sound.Can i replace this with an aftermarket stereo or do i need to buy the same stereo that is in it now?


First make sure the key is pushed all the way in the ignition, I have had other cars that if the key was not pushed in all the way the radio display would not work. If this is not the problem, I would replace the radio with an updated aftermarket radio/cd/mp3 player. I have a newer Grand Marquis and the radio went out so I priced used replacement radios and they cost as much as an aftermarket radio. You can find these at any car salvage yard (junk yard). A used radio would be easier to install as you would just have to plug it in using the same cables in the back. To install an aftermarket radio you will need one or two adapter cables and will require splicing wires. I have installed quite a few radios and I opted to do it myself. You can have the radio installed by a dealer but installation cost run from $75.00 to $125.00 depending on type of car and radio. If choosing an aftermarket radio make sure the look will fit the car. You may not like the look of something with widly glowing LED lights a few month down the road. I am very pleased with the unit I purchased as it looks more like an OEM radio and doesn't shout steal me at car thieves. I can play mp3's and plug in both ipods and other compatible electronics.

Can i install a cd player that i have and subs with amp in a 2006 chevy cobalt two door and if i can can u send me directions


technically you can install any radio in any car. first off i would check places like best buy for a easy wire harness and a dash plate. if you can track down these 2 things it should be as easy as plug and play. directions will come with the product.

CD Player Rejects CD's


The dealer fixes everything...at a very steep price if not under warranty. If out of warranty i suggest you look into aftermarket stereos. Try a reputable stereo shop that won't rip you off.

I AM TRYIN TO INSTALL AN AFTERMARKET CD PLAYER IN MY 2006 CHEVY C


Some cobalts have the controls on the radio - some on the steering wheel depending on your trim level.

After you have the 2 side panels off - the radio trim will simply pull off in the same manner.

Wiring difference


If your installing a stock radio/cd player from another Dodge the wiring plug is the same and will fit.If your installing a aftermarket radio/cd player(JVC,Pioneer,etc)you will need to buy a adapter plug that wires up to the radio and is a direct fit to your factory wire harness,so your not cutting your wires.When you buy the adapter plug it comes with a wire diagram of which wire is what.Your aftermarket radio should have a diagram also,either on it or in the manual.Hope this helps you.

Cd changer doesnt work


This sucks on multiple levels. If you have the 6 disk CD changer that is part of the Monsoon sound system upgrade, these radios are expensive as all hell to try and replace, not worth it. The really crappy part is that EVERYTHING is controlled through your radio; trip odometer, fuel economy, oil life, and a multitude of of other settings. If you dont mind not being able to see all that stuff, or see any warnings that may come up on the display, then by all means go for an aftermarket deck, but you will probably want to mount your factory radio in the trunk if you ever have to change a setting, or if you had to ever reset your anti theft if it ever becomes activated. The other fun part is that if you have the Monsoon system, wiring your aftermarket deck can be a pain in the *** as monsoon speakers run both a high +/- and a low +/- set of wires, that is why its very expensive to replace a monsoon speaker if you blow one as aftermarket manufacturers do not make them, and or are where you were before, spending alot of cash.
