all you gotta do is carfully pry the dash panel off (prying from the far left end is easiest) completely remove panel. then there are 2 clips that hold the factory sterio in place. push on the both clips while pulling the radio out. simply disconnect the wiring harness from the back of the radio. using an adapter avaliable at your local radio shop (scosche p/n gm02, mdarb and gm1483b) wiring harness, dash install kit, and antenna adapter. then simply match the colors on the new radio's harness to the adapter harness, crimping each connection with a "but plug". then simply follow the instructions included with the dash install kit to assemble the kit.connect the antenna adapter to radio, plug in all cables. test to see if everything works properly before the final install. install sterio into dash install kit, re installing kit where origional radio was. then simply put the panel back in its place by firmly pushing on it untill it snaps into place. then enjoy your new radio!

generally it would just need to be reset... unhook the battery for about ten minutes and hook it back up. make sure you have the unlock code for the radio FIRST and you know how to enter it.

Yes you do have to take it to the dealer, This is a common problem in these trucks. This is caused by a bad encoder sensor in the shifter on the side of the transfer case. The sensor can be replaced with out having to replace the shifter assembly.
THe best test is to get the code from the system. This sensor is a sliding resistor and the material wears off causing a false reading. That is why the lights were showing Nothing, but you were able to drive. The code for the sensor is C0327.
TBS: #PIP3480M: Rattle Drone Or Buffeting Noise At Highway Speed In 2WD Or DTC C0327 - keywords 246 2hi 2high 4WD auto awd buffet buzz case click indicator knock lamp light service tick transfercase transfer vibrati - (Mar 4, 2008) Vehicles involved were built approximately between 01/01/04 and 03/06/06. The noise condition if not noticed by the customer may cause eventual encoder sensor wear causing DTC C0327 set in the Transfer Case Control Module (TCCM).
An updated TCCM calibration has been released to apply light pressure to the transfer case clutch pack and reduce the rattle. The calibration was released on 3/18/07 and the title line will read "to correct transfer case rattle at highway speeds and possible DTC C0327". For Rattle only (no current DTC C0327 set), Install the updated calibration and if necessary follow the diagnostics listed below
If the vehicle has a current or history dtc C0327 and can be diagnosed to the encoder sensor, re-flash with the updated calibrations and replace the encoder sensor as necessary.
Important Note: All NV246 transfer cases built 02/25/06 and beyond are manufactured with pressed fit parts to help reduce the rattle. Inspect the ID tag on the transfer case for this build date and verify the tccm has the latest calibration before repairs are initiated.
Thank you fur using Fixya and good luck.
