    It doesn't show anything on the display and just get static on the speakers.

    The one that we swapped it with was a factory radio and it was working when taken out of the previous vehicle.

    CD will not stop accepting and rejecting CDs even when no CD is present. Is there a way to shut off power to the CD player without killing the radio and cassette. Help driving me CRAZY!

When you say tried different radio and it didn't work, does this mean the tuner acts like it is functioning, but you hear nothing out of the speakers?

If so, this stinks of a bad ANTENNA...

    Hmm, perhaps you have 2 bad radios? Although not likely, not impossible. I don't recall the GM wiring harness having separate feeds (+12v) for the radio and the cassette, but I don't know for sure. Do you have access to a known working factory radio that you could swap in there right quick like and see if you get the same results?

    If not, perhaps a cheapie aftermarked CD/Reciever combo is in order...

    There are (2) wires that have 12vdc on GM radios in most cases... one is the main supply wire and one is the feed from the dash lights. Have you checked to make sure you have juice on both?
