The Vehicle interface unit VIU and the Vehicle control unit VCU and the receiver is located behind the glove box in the passenger footwell. the onstar button is located int he overhead console. the modules are vin specific so they cant be swapped out without GM. you can remove them I have a 02 and since its no longer supported by onstar i yanked out the VIU and VCU and the cell phone receiver. then took the GPS transponder off the front driver side of the windshield and the rear attenna off the back glass and got an overhead console minus onstar and put it up. They unplug and cause no problems The fuse is fuse 32. The actual guts of the Onstar system is in the frontmost overhead compartment that is between the driver and passenger seats. However, if the option wasn't purchased you'll just have an extra slot for sunglasses.

Where can I buy onstar fmv to installin my 2013 mkx lincoln


Hello Sandra Eldridge,

Your title says what kit you prefer... From what little I know about OnStar... "OnStar FMV" appears to be the (SMART) MIRROR
approach... My best recommendation would be to get YOUR
"FMV" from CRUTCHFIELD (see below)...

"PAIN-LESS AND WELL DONE"

I checked ontar.com and your car IS ON-STAR capable...

Sadly I always make things more complex than they need to be:
I don't think the LINCOLN "sound system" is inferior in ANY WAY... and think there has got to be a better solution than by-passing an already REALLY EXCELLENT human interface...
for a "SMART MIRROR" (FMV)... So BEFORE you choose THAT SOLUTION... I would ask you to find out WHAT SERVICES
are presently in your existing MIRROR.

CRUTTHFIELD technicians can do that for you... Phone them... Talk to them...

ELSE take it to your LINCOLN DEALER and ask what service THEY COULD equip in a new car... BECAUSE I can't park without my CAMERAS any more

(just kidding... never scuffed a tire!!).

Years ago CRUTCHFIELD offered a 3-SIXTY-3 solution for my NAVIGATOR... radio navigation system to integrate BLUETOOTH.
I was QUITE DELIGHTED to deal with their technical staff

I have felt the EXTRA SECURITY of knowing the VEHICLE is being tracked... (watched over)... and felt quite secure

I think onstar is a much safer choice than fumbling with your cell-phone trying to use siri while driving.

Hope it all works out well...

Sorry to pose another question while I'm supposed to be offering a solution.

Can't activate onstar in the vehicle by the blue button on a 2004 envoy


Is the LED on the right side of the mirror green or red? If it's red, or not illuminated at all, there is a problem in the onstar system that needs to be diagnosed with a scan tool. Also- that model may also still have the analog onstar system. GM had an upgrade program that ran for a few years that allowed you to upgrade your onstar to digital hardware. If you're still running the analog onstar hardware, it's not going to work. Again, going to a reputable dealer would be the best way to find out what's going on.

I want to disable XM radio and OnStar on my 2005 Pontiac Grand Prix. Can I remove the fuse(s) for each Unit without harming my vehicle? Can I disconnect any wiring harnesses? Where do I find each Units...


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.

Onstar & Navigation...Can I have Navigation if I disable Onstar?


hi, i have been reading up a few things on your problem as such, apparently you can disable the onstar system by removing/unplugging the box that is located under the rear seat, i do not know if this will deactivate your satnav though, i suppose it is something to try and see what happens, if it does not work unfortunately the only way to do it is to get the dealership to deactivate it, but looking at this a bit more, as it is a subscription service surely you can get the company who the subscription goes to , to disable it for you at their end? just a suggestion.....hope this helps

The module is located behind your instrument gauge cluster. You must remove the gauge cluster first and then you will see it.

Instrument Panel Carrier Replacement
Removal Procedure
On vehicles equipped with a manual transmission, remove the shift lever.
On vehicles equipped with an automatic transmission, perform the following
steps:
2.1. Apply the park brake.
2.2. Insert the ignition key and turn the ignition switch to the RUN
position.
2.3. Depress the brake pedal and shift the transmission to the 1
position.
2.4. Turn the ignition switch to the OFF position.



Caution: Unless directed otherwise, the ignition and start switch must be in
the OFF or LOCK position, and all electrical loads must be OFF before
servicing any electrical component. Disconnect the negative battery cable to
prevent an electrical spark should a tool or equipment come in contact with an
exposed electrical terminal. Failure to follow these precautions may result in
personal injury and/or damage to the vehicle or its components.
For Vehicles equipped with OnStar® (UE1) with Back Up Battery:
The Back Up Battery is a redundant power supply to allow limited OnStar®
functionality in the event of a main vehicle battery power disruption to the
VCIM (OnStar®module). Do not disconnect the main vehicle battery or remove the
OnStar® fuse with the ignition key in any position other than OFF. Retained
accessory power (RAP) should be allowed to time out or be disabled (simply
opening the driver door should disable RAP) before disconnecting power.
Disconnecting power to the OnStar® module in any way while the ignition is On
or with RAP activated may cause activation of the OnStar® Back-Up Battery
(BUB) system and will discharge and permanently damage the back-up battery.
Once the Back-Up Battery is activated it will stay on until it has completely
discharged. The BUB is not rechargeable and once activated the BUB must be
replaced.

How can i find my car from my home computer using onstar


I believe you will have to call onstar and request the location information. They will be able to tell you the address or general location of the vehicle.
I am unaware of any other means to track the vehicle unless you report it stolen.
Good luck.
