Thats a very touchy area, if you have a diagram from the dealer, you have electrical skills to go with it. otherwise you may short out your whole radio and/or wire harness. most radios today have wheel controls but they are not all compatible with your car. go on ebay and get the right one or go to the dealer and ask him to recommend one that is compatible

This is the diagram but you should have factory belt diagram sticker is still somewhere under the hood
If not:

To replace the serpentine belt on a V6 3800 you must jack up the motor and remove a motor mount. You must then use a breaker bar with a socket (13/64") and pull it toward the front of the car to release the belt tensioner. Put the new belt on, tighten it, put the mount back on, and lower the jack.
Driving without a belt can cause the motor to overheat, will cut power steering, and will not recharge the battery, so you should probably get a tow
Good Luck

What's all need to install a aftermarket radio in a 05 Dodge caravan? Been awhile since I did it yrs before but the wife's van radio is going out CD player and radio itself


Radio, aftermarket radio kit(used to mount the radio), and an aftermarket wire plug. This plugs into the radio and your existing harness. Otherwise you have to cut and splice wires. I use a volt /ohm meter to cut and splice.

Can I take the factory radio out of my 1997 buick park avenue and put in an aftermarket?


Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome. You sure can. The wires may need adjusted in the back and you might have to account for extra room, but yes you can make that switch.

Steering wheel radio wires, i need a wire color diagram to steering wheel for the aftermarket radio i need to know the wire colors that controls what.


The wires that control the radio from the steering go to the Body Control Module (BCM), not directly to the radio. The BCM sends data over the serial bus to the radio.

I am trying to install a Clarion NZ409 Radio/DVD player in my 1997 Dodge 2500 extended cab diesel truck. I need to hook up one wire to the parking brake signal cord so that video will play only when the...


You can do like I did installing it in my 04 Civic Hybrid - find another wire that supplies a constant +5VDC and then it will believe the parking brake is always engaged and allow video. It's not legal to watch video while driving, but in my case, there was a wire bundle of around 30 or 40 wires harnessesd together that I wasn't about to jack with.

Also note that Clarion will not warranty any self installed NX or NZ 409 units. Something I hadn't realized when I got mine off e-bay.

CTS in dash navigation system


There is a company called PAC that specializes in modules like you describe - keeping the steering wheel controls functional with an aftermarket radio.

Click HERE to visit their site. You have to choose a compatible manufacturer. Basically - it is turning the steering wheel controls into a "remote" hidden in the dash.

CLICK HERE for the PAC installation guide for the 2006 CTS

For best results and compatibility, look for a shop in your area that carries PAC - it is a common manufacturer in the BIZ, and have them install it.

The simple answer to your question is YES as long as you use the module compatible for the brand of radio you are installing.
