This is the radio itself. depending on the year of the vehicle there is no computer for it (controller box). what year is the vehicle? i can tell you more. but even if it is linked to the bcm in the newer years symptoms are usally tracked back to the radio head unit itself.

can you tell me the issues you are having with it?

Can you remove the factory stereo with the computer in it without it messing anything up?


Depends on year, make and model. I changed mine in my 03 Tahoe but had to rewrite the Sirius, nav, xm, and voice control box. Took me a bit but real happy with how it turned out. Changing radios is not like it used to be so I advise you go to a decent radio shop

I have a 2005 malibu and want to replace my radio but keep my mileage and information screen, how can I do this.


assuming info screen is in the factory radio
couple ways of doing this
first and easiest is leave factory radio in place
and find a location for new radio (in glove box, under dash, (under seat if have remote) then just remove speaker wires from factory radio and install on aftermarket radio then run power and ground to aftermarket radio

option two
relocate factory radio to trunk or under seat (problem with this method is u have to look in trunk or under seat to read gas millage or info )
u will need to lengthen the data wires and run them to the new location of factory radio

The 2003 impala will not start / you turn the key and nothing happens. the door locks do not work / the heater does not work/ and there is a clicking noise in behind the glove box. the battery is brand...


no start and door locks are consistent with security system activation. Is your security light blinking? Are you using the factory key with the resistor on the blade? Do you have another factory key you can try?
Not sure why the blower would be affected. Does the radio work? If not, check the radio fuse inside the car, as I think it runs the blower controller. Also check the HVAC fuse under the hood--#29--this one affects the security light.
I think the body control module is behind the glove box, but not sure why it would be clicking in these circumstances.
Let me know what you find out and if you have questions along the way.

Engine light stay on and off 1995 VW Jetta GLS


It's just bad timing. Aftermarket radios have nothing to do with cruise control. Cruise control is attached to your cable line for your pedal near your throttle. It'a normally a box attached next to it. That is running on the battery separately and maybe a sensor to warn if it's not working properly.
The radio factory radio, is attached to many sensors in cars. If you have one that worked with volume contols on steering wheel than you might of sparked a problem. If that is the case (where you could control factory radio on steering wheel), than all you need is to go to the dealer and ask them to reset your gauges and warning lights. let them know whats up. Might cost you nothing. Also when replacing certain parts, the cruise control might have been tampered with and doesnt work.Or has been detached. normally you will have a blinking light steady, blink and it disappears. But check with dealer for the reset.

After they have done this, check to see if it occurs again. If it does, than it might be a shorted out wire connecting one of the sensors from the large important parts you had replaced earlier and it was just result of coincidental timing.

especially when replacing timing belt and water pumps. Even mechanics make mistakes!
Good luck.
