This is pretty easy really. Hopefully mine is that same as it is an LE.

There is a piece of trim that goes horizontally down the centerish area of the dash. Mine is made to look kinda like wood. A small part comes off to the left of the steering wheel and a larger to the right. This is just clipped in and will pop off.

Under is you have access to some hex head screws. at least on on the left of steering and 2 or 3 spread across the right. The rest of this piece is clips that can pop off.

Once you get it all loose you can work it around the steering wheel till it comes off. This is probably the trickiest part on and off.

Once it is off there are 3 screws holding the radio I place. I recommend you find a GM wiring harness and installation kit that matches your make/model and put your stereo in it first. It will make a little shelf in the dash to help take up some of the space the stock radio used up and the kits attach points will match with the screw points where you removed the old one.

I can't help much with the wiring harness but I recommend you do not cut into the connections in the dash . find a harness that fits the connection mine came from Best Buy but I'm sure you can get em many places. Wire the radio to the harness then you can just plug in the connections (Harness and Antenna)where the stock radio was removed and screw it in place then replace the dash in reverse order.

How do you get the stock radio deck out of a 1991 buick park avenue?


*It's a bit tricky but not difficult, if you know how the dash in the Park Avenue is put together. But before you do anything, safety first. *Disconnect the negative cable from the battery before doing any electrical work on a car. This prevents shorting out your cars electrical system.

*If you own the 90 -91 Park Avenue model, simply pull off the decorative trim away from the radio to expose the torq screws that hold the radio into the dash. You will need a torq screwdriver of the right size to remove the radio.
Available from your local autoparts store.

*If you own the 91-92 model, it's a whole different ball game. This since the dash is much more tightly compacted. It's a combination of a snap together assembly and Torq screws. The dash is held together in columns or sections.

*The torq screws on these models are hidden behind the heater vents in the upper dash. First pry the wooden trim (Which surrounds the climate control module) on the bottom of the dash off, gently but firmly until it comes free, exposing the Torq screws on the lower dash. Remove the heater vents (hiding the upper screws ) by popping them out with a straight blade screw driver. Then remove all Torq screws visible to the eye, only from the column that is holding is holding the radio in place.

*You will then be able to remove the black colored plastic off the dash to expose the radio. (Use care when removing the lower dash column as some climate control and airbag sensors might be embedded).

*Remove all Torq screws holding the radio in place, (and keep track of all screws) pull the radio out of the dash, and disconnect electrical connectors. If you'll be replacing the stock radio with a non factory radio, make sure all electrical connection watch up, since security feature in the radio are integrated into the radio. (some of these effect basic function on your vehicle like the headlights) If you will be reinstalling the stock radio, you will have to have it unlocked by the dealership. The DelcoLoc system will now think the radio is stolen, because of it's internal security features. Installation is the reverse of removal.

Hope this helps.

My factory radio went out in my car...so i had a new one put it in. After the guy installed the radio we noticed that my park lights and dash lights werent working. We checked the fuses and they were all...


I really hope that this guy bought a wiring kit to put in the aftermarket radio, because this could be simple. Your stock radio runs the dash and parking lights threw it's display and that needs to be looped with the new radio. On the aftermarket, there is a orange wire that does this. Since the stock wiring is different with every make and model of auto out there, you need to buy the wiring kit that plugs into the car's harness and matches in color to the harness of the new radio. Putting together the orange wires will give you back your lights. If this person cut the orginal plugs off of the car and wired it direct to the car, you may want to see if the plugs can be put back on and the wiring kit installed or you going to be going through a nightmare of figuring out what wire is what on the car side. Those wiring kits that plug into the car and wire up to the radio are cheap and can be bought at Wal Mart for about 20 to 25 dollars. Good luck

Stereo removal


you will need to unscrew your dash and pull off the front plate of your dash, then you will need to unscrew the stock radio, then you will need to go ahead and pull out the adapter from the back of your radio. Next you will need to attach your adapter harness to your car harness and splice the color coded wires to the harness on your new cd player.After that, you will need to plug your antenna back into your new cd player, Note that some cd players will require an adapter, these can be found at circuit city or at your local car dealerships.-Shocker
