SOURCE: 2005 town and country factory stereo removal

It's actually not too hard when you figure everything out. I just installed an aftermarket stereo and couldn't get any sound until I stumbled across a solution on this site. First you need to get the correct wire harness which I bought on ebay for $1.99. Then you need to get the install kit. I got mine at Radio Shack for $10.00 cause they're going out of business. You can get it at Best Buy too or any other car stereo place. To get the old stereo out. Take out the cup holder. There is a button on the top rear of it that releases it. Then remove the 2 screws at the bottom. Gently pull the entire trim that surrounds the stereo, cd changer and ac controls. You will now have access to removing the stereo. It's very easy after that. After you connect the wire harness and install the new stereo you need to run a wire from the red ACC wire on the stereo to the NBS relay in the fuse box under the hood. That's it! Good luck. Sorry I have no pictures.

SOURCE: trying to remove a factory stereo in my 2001 chevy

If this is the kind with 4 holes in i, then you need to get the removal tools or use 4 nails or long screwdrivers all at same time and pull out the stereo.
If you do not have the holes, then you may have the kind that requires tools to slide in sides between stereo and bracket to loosen the hold. A butterknife sometimes works for this..

SOURCE: I have a 2005 Chevy Malibu Maxx. It has a TC

i think it stands for traction control. most cars with that say ETC which stands for electronic traction control. if you have a manual for the car it should say what it is.

How do I remove the fuse box under hood of a 2005 chevy Malibu?


Look at the sides of the fuse box. There are four tabs. Insert a flat screw driver and push away from the box, while pulling up. They just snap into place. You will also have to remove some harness clamps to get the box far enough out of your way.

Factory Remote Starter works sometimes


Could be an engine or data problem.. If the check engine light ever came on, the computer is locking out the remote start. This is to prevent the car from running unattended that may have a problem. Have the compute scanned first or any codes, correct the problem and the remote start problem may go away.

I own a 2008 Chevy Malibu and none of my gauges are working. They are all stuck on zero even while I'm driving. How do I fix this problem?


check fuses. did this happen all of the sudden? did you or someone recently change the stereo, reason I ask this is there is a continuous power wire that connects the factory stereo to the guage panel usually a yellow wire, and if it's no longer connected or incorrectly connected then that would cause your gauges not to work

Chevrolet 2005 Malibu. CD is stuck in the stereo. How do I remove the dash around the stereo. So I can remove the stereo to get fixed


Sometimes you can press and hold down the CD's forward and backward track buttons or play and eject buttons to release the CD. Contact your Chevy dealer and ask a Service Consultant if the Delco unit has this feature.

Stop by an AutoZone or O'Reilly's and they have a ECM scan tool that they will "lend" you to download the codes. I'm pretty sure AutoZone does this for free...
