Question about 2002 Pontiac Bonneville

Open Question

Install aftermarket stereo / head unit. Is it possible

I am looking to upgrade the factory audio head unit in my 2002 Bonneville SLE. First I checked with Crutchfield and they stated that they have nothing that would fit. After questioning them they said it has more to do with the fact that the factory radio handles some of the warning chimes etc. I then went to a site called AutoToys and they said that I can replace the factory head unit with an after market and that they do have a wiring harness that will tie the OnStar (and assuming chimes etc.) into the radio. Is this a gamble I should take assuming that the interface does what it says or am I stuck with the mediocre factory stereo? Any advice is welcome.

SOURCE: installing after market stereo

Dave,

You will need to go buy a wiring harness adapter from your local Walmart (usually cheapest there) or Local Electronics place (ie Best Buy). The wire harness that goes out from the radio goes into the Adapter and the adapter plugs into the car harnesses. Also these Adapters come with the wiring diagrams for your vehicle. They typically run 10 - 15 bucks depending on where you get them. Thanks for using FixYa!

Sincerely,

JC

SOURCE: Installing aftermarket radio. Wheres the accessory??

Did the radio play after you took the key out?
And do the chimes come through the speakers?
If so, then you need to get a harness to go inbetween the radio and the car harness.

SOURCE: I want to disable XM radio and OnStar on my 2005

I have disabled factory xm/onstar units from many cars with no issue. i believe the onstar/xm units are both located in the trunk of you car behind the carpet (usually labeled accordingly). If you can find the fuse dedicated to the unit you can pull that. I have found the fuse is sometimes located on the unit. If you cant find the units then you can pull out the radio and unplug them from the back (more often than not it will be the smallest harness coming out the back). A quick way to test... have your car on and pull one plug at a time... make sure, once you have located it, test you audio (some harnesses are for amplified audio systems). The only neg. effect i have seen (rarely) has been the loss of the door chime.

No sound how do icheck amp1994 jeep cherkee


Is your stereo OEM (factory installed) or aftermarket? If OEM, is there any hum or static? Can you change frequencies or bands? Is it a digital display or analog tuning bar? If aftermarket, same questions, plus are your connections on the back of he head unit properly mated? Are the speakers factory or aftermarket? As you can see, there are several possibilities. Answering these questions will narrow down the list of possible problems.

Have 2002 rodeo lse...what is brand of stereo? Want to purchase new factory stereo...bought one previously, that looked like installed one, but did not work because of tuner or amp issue.


There were probably different stereo unit options available but the particular stock stereo in my 2002 Rodeo was a "Clarion" Model No. P1-9993M (cassette player). I've since upgraded to a better aftermarket head unit so you are welcome to my old one if willing to pay shipping (ha,ha).

These cars have a factory amp system that will not operate correctly with an aftermarket stereo. You have two choices. You can either run new wires to the speakers your self which would bypass the factory amp. Or you can order the premium sound system Interface here http://www.myinstallkit.com/FORD/1990%20(90)%20FORD%20THUNDERBIRD%20Radio%20-%20Stereo%20Installation%20Kit.htm scroll about half way down the page.

Stereo Upgrade in 1997 Sentra


hi there. I am not sure about the speakers. But there is a wiring harness available for a aftermarket head unit. I have a '97 sentra the base model XE version. I have just put in an alpine head unit and you defenately hear the difference even on factory speakers. But you will need 2 kits to install an aftermarket head unit in the car. 1. A dash kit. I got mine from canadian tire for about 20 bucks, it comes with instructions on how to put it together and its straight forward, just make sure u get the one for your year and make of car.

2. The wiring harness. there available at mostly every car audio place for about 10 bucks. again make sure u get the one for your year make and model of car. installing this is difficult so unless your good at electronics get it professionally installed. you have to splice the wires into the back of the aftermarket unit, then the plugs plug right into your existing factory car harness.

hope this solves your problem, the dash kit is easy to put together and install into the car, but the wiring harness is a bit difficult, i had my harness installed for about 40 bucks and u save money if u put the dash kit togehter yourself because thats 1 less thing they have to do. good luck.

Installation of new cd player in 2002 VR-X Lancer


There are aftermarket wireharnesses available. I suggest the $15-25 purchase. The wires usually match color for color to the aftermarket stereo saving a major head ache if attempting to figure out the factory harness. These adaptors are available at many audo part stores and local installation shops. To check the harness you need, Metra, on of the main aftermarket wire harness manufacturers has an application chart on line, see metraonline.com or a search for American International or Scosche.
