Question about 2006 Chevrolet Impala
I am trying to get my system hooked up in my 2006 Impala. I get to the aftermarket CD player installation and have problems. I have the CD player wired to everything correctly, or at least I thought so, I can not get it to shut off with the ignition... Any solutions?
Find a test light and probe your wires you are trying to hook into. You should have one that stays hot, or has power all of the time, and one that only has power when the key is in the on or acc position. Hook the new radio memory power to the one that is hot all of the time and the main power to the one that only has power when the key is on.

Radios in the 2004 Impalas are tied to the vehicle's VIN through the computer, so it may be somewhat difficult to get the code. However, the following steps should work:
1. Press and hold the buttons for presets 1 & 4 (may be 2 & 3). The word "SEC" should show.
2. Press the "MIN" button. "000" should be displayed.
3. Press the "MIN" button again to have the second two numbers appear. Record these numbers.
4. Press the "HR" button for the first two numbers to appear. Record these numbers. -- Note: Your number sequence should be the numbers from the "HR" button followed by the numbers from the "MIN" button.
5. Call 1-800-537-5140. This will get you to the GM unlock code automated line. Ignore the prompt and enter "202108#". Next enter your code (remember, HR then MIN) followed by the * key. For example, 1234*. A 3 or 4 digit code will be given to you. If you get a code such as 0532, drop the zero when entering it into your radio.
6. Enter the code into the radio IAW the applicable manual.

SOURCE: installing CD player
here is the wiring schematic.
Constant 12V+ Orange Switched 12V+ Yellow Ground Black Illumination Gray Dimmer Brown Antenna Right Window Trim Front Speakers 6 1/2" Doors Left Front (+) Tan Left Front (-) Gray Right Front (+) Light Green Right Front (-) Dark Green Rear Speakers 4" x 6" Side Pillar Left Rear (+) Brown Left Rear (-) Yellow Right Rear (+) Dark Blue Right Rear (-) Light Blue
And you will need a Wire harness... Metra #GMRC-LAN-01
And a mounting Kit Metra #99-3305
And antenna adapter Metra #40-cr10
This is for the basic radio... if you have upgrade NAV/Onstar/Premium sound.... there are different wiring harnesses available.
Let me know if you need more help.

The only thing that is left for you to do is to remove the stereo and then disassemble it and remove it yourself. A little daunting but needs to be done. Sounds like it went in wrong and then became jammed

I have a 2001 Impala. My security light will flash and sometimes the car won't start. My dad told me turn the key to the start position, place your foot on the break, put your car in the last gear it was in (D, R, or N). Then shift all the way back into park. Make sure you shift all the way into park. Take your foot off the break. Then turn ignition back to off. Your car should then start right up. He said the sensor still thinks the car is in D, R, or N although it's in park. So it confuses the system and it doesn't start because it doesn't know which function to do. It pretty much locks up. I'm pos. this will work. My car does it every few months. Hope this helps.

That interface most likely is not going to work, because it is not compatible with all the gm radios, don't work good with XM and rear video system,
the problem is the wiring and the software on the interface,
the PIE GM12-AUX v2 works with all the radios in gm vehicles,
radio needs to have a BAND button and CD/AUX
