How do I get to back of radio in 2005 Chevy Express?

Is there a way to plug satellite radio directly into the factory radio on a 2005 Chevy Express (with patch cable - miniplug/RCA)? If so, how do I get to the back of the radio?

    Thanks, but can I get the instructions without buying their product? I already have the satellite radio, I just need to know how to get to the back of the factory radio.

    1. Remove any media you may have in the existing radio, like cassette tapes or CDs. Set the parking brake, and turn off the ignition to the van.
      Pull away the small trim-panel that's located underneath the steering column. Simply grab the backside of the panel and pull firmly away from the dashboard.

      Push down on the two white plastic tabs on either side of the factory radio and pull the radio towards you. The radio will slide out from the cavity in the dash.
      When the radio is clear of the dashboard, unplug the connectors on the back and you've completed removing the radio.
      Just keep in mind to read your manual about the security lock code to you radio. Not sure if it has been set with a lock code or not, you may have to disable the security code so can use your radio again when you plug it back in. If you have disconnected it already and asking you for a lock code, you can go to the dealer and have them help you unlock it and if there charging you a crazy price to unlock it. Log on to www.radio-code.com.
      Good luck and hope this helps.

Where to find spark plugs for 2005 chevy express


You didn't say what size engine, but I think all of the 2005 models have direct ignition, which means each cylinder has a coil on top of the spark plug.
Are you talking about that ?

Where in the hell does the antenna wire plug into on a 1990 chevy k1500 with factory radio, did not see a place on equalizer or radio itself.


In most cases the antenna plug directly into the back of the radio. But GM came up with this crazy 3 piece stereo system. You have the display/selector, the tape deck/EQ, and the tuner. The antenna will be pluged into the tuner which is buried deep into the dash above the acceleator slightly to the right. I have installed close to 100 stereos and this threw me for a loop. Follow the tape deck/eq wiring harness to find it. Happy hunting.

My 2005 chevy cobalt factory radio is locked


There are only 2 things you can try to fix this yourself: turn off the engine and open the driver side door (to turn the radio off). Wait 5 minutes, start your car.
If that does not solve it, turn off your engine, disconnect the car battery, wait about 5 minutes. Reconnect the battery (negative pole first - black connector) and try your radio again.

If neither one of these two fix your problem, I am afraid only a GM service center or dealership can fix the problem. The Cobalt is notorious for all kinds of electrical issues.

Thanks for using the fixya forums!
