Start by removing the trim around the shifter, its friction fitted so it will pop off with gentle force. Then you can remove the larger piece of trim that surrounds the shifter and extends up to the cup holders, I found that prying from the cup holder end seems to work best. Now you will be able to remove the trim that runs down the side of the center consol and includes the cup holders and power plug, you undo the 2 screws near the shifters then pry it off down the sides and pulls clear from the dash. Only then can you undo the bolts that hold down the bottom of the radio frame. From there it becomes alot easier. Push on the frame where you just pulled the bolts out of while prying gently at the radio consol. The whole thing will come out the factory unit comes out easily then you can put your dash adapter (schoche makes a decent kit) and aftermarket unit in.

Had a new altanater put on and now the radio won't come on checked the fuse and its still good 1999 mercury cougar


If it is a factory radio, you may need to enter an anti-theft code. If it is an aftermarket radio, they tend to pinch or fry wiring in the area around the dash, and it may be unrelated to the replacement of the alternator

    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 want to replace the radio in a 2002 grand am


    Easy get the radio you want, then go to wal-mart and look for a wire install plug, and a radio install bezel. The plug will plug directly into the factory harness in the dash and all you have to do is connect the color coded wires from the new radio harness to the aftermarket one. The bezel will fill in the extra space from the size difference from the factory to the new radio.

    Need to know how to take apart dash to replace radio


    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.

    Want to replace factory radio with aftermarket


    It wont mess up the ECM but you'll most probably lose the door chime and the lights on chime. They both work through the factory radio, chiming through the left speaker.

    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

    Original radio wiring harness


    Google Volvo wiring diagram. They are available free. The diagram shows the wire location and colors. Otherwise, run a continuity test with a simple meter to discover a connection with some resistance between a pair of wires. If you here a click or two, from the speakers, you have found the right pair. Continue and label the pairs left, right, front,rear, until all are identified. Then reconnect. A pain but not rocket science.
