Question about 1988 Cadillac Eldorado

Open Question

1987 Eldorado Bose Radio Upgrade

I want to upgrade the original bose tape radio to a late model bose cd player. Reason for this is to keep the factory look. Can I do this?? From what I understand the Bose head units make low level signals for the speakers. Thats why there is a mini amp for each speaker. There are 4 speakers and they sound great. Does this apply to all bose factory radios??
For example: I want to install a Bose CD player from a 2002 corvette.

I may have to rearrange some wires but, Will it work?

or Does anyone suggest a preticular radio to use.

I had the same problem. disconnect the battery cables. then reconnect them. this will reset the cd player and it should relaese all your cd player problems.
this happened twice to me and the above worked fine both times.

Hopefully you got the unlock code with it, otherwise, write down serial number and model number off back or side of deck, and give dealer a call, they should be able to give you the code .

is it a new cd/radio ? the wiring is the same for a radio with or with out a cd player , the cd should work once the radio is connected , the other port you mention may be relevent as the original radio was a factory installed , these are usually designed to be useless to be used in other vehicles as a theft deterrent , i would remove the new radio and have a good search in the radio space as there may well be the second connector you require , be very carefull as there are many sharp edges and the apeture is not very large , the second connector , if there, will most likely be taped to another loom so as to keep it away from touching other parts so a good torch and have a search , keep me posted if you wish

you might have to take it to the dealership to have the radio reprogramed. it should only cost 40 bucks. these radios are very tempermental and have a mind of their own sometimes. My profesional recomendation would be to have an aftermarket cd player in. they are much nicer and have way better quality than the factory radio's

After Market radio install on a 2001 Passat


Metra makes a preamp harness that you can use if you have the partial Bose system. My A4 had that (where the front speakers were run off of the headunit with speaker-level feed, but the deck put a line level signal to a rear amp to power the speakers). This harness would let you use the aftermarket deck with your factory speakers, if you have the partial Bose system. Best bet is to do a Google search for "Metra 2001 Passat" or something like that and I'm sure it'll show up.
