You can buy a harness adapter at most big box stores ( Best Buy, Walmart and so on. It will have a wiring/color code, and once attached correctly to the new head unit, it will be plug and play. Good luck.
In most vehicles the "chime" is located in the dash around where your 4 way flaser is.
It could simply be the door switch also which is a little button that depresses when you close the door to open the circuit shutting the dome light and chime off.
They are easy to change and inexpensive.
Hope that helps.
there are instructional videos on eBay.com, crutchfield.com, and on youtube.com. you will have to click around and do some searching but they are there. if your new radio is not factory, then you will need some adapters to connect it to your car's wiring harness, and possibly some mechanical adapters to make it fit in the old stereo's dash recess.
if you look in the yellow pages you can find car stereo shops where they do this for a living. they have all the adapters in stock and though they want to sell you a stereo, they will install yours also, for a fee. if you have never done this before, you are better off to pay someone. i have done maybe fifty in my life and i gladly pay someone else 75 bucks to do it now.
I had the same problem when I changed out the factory cd player. I finally found the problem was that grand am gt cars have a couple of amplifiers with crossovers in them for the speakers and the after market stereos put out sound that has been slightly amplified already and when you hook up your new stereo to the wiring harness your sending amplified sound from your stereo the the factory amp then to the speakers this sometimes messes with he sound and clarity of the sound. My car is 2002 and the factory amps are located 1 under the glove box and 2 in the trunk behind the carpet on the drivers side. The amp and crossover in the front is to split the signal for the door speaker and the tweeter by the mirror and the amp in the trunk is to split the signal for the two way speaker in the back by the back window witch if they are like my factory speakers have 2 wiring harnesses connected to each speaker. the only way I could get mine to sound good was to run new wires from your stereo directly to the speakers and bypass the factory amps. This may not be the only way to fix this issue but it was the only way I could figure it out. I hope this helps
