Hello. There is really no sense in swapping because the 2002 Onstar is analog format where as the 2009 is digital format. Onstar is only digital now making the analog equipment obsolete. That said, *OnStar services require vehicle electrical system (including battery), wireless service and GPS satellite signals to be available and operating for features to function properly. Subscription Service Agreement required. The U.S. Federal Communications Commission (FCC) ruled that wireless carriers will no longer be required to support the analog wireless network beginning in 2008. As of January 1, 2008, OnStar plans to offer service only through equipment that operates on the digital network which may require the purchase of a system upgrade for eligible vehicles.

Each on star unit is programmed and assigned to an individual vehicle's VIN number. In other words, you can't mix these units from vehicle to vehicle.

    I checked out the link, and i had a hard time finding a solution that clearly stated that someone was able to get this swap to work without Dealer and Onstar involved. Then there is the Digital and Analog question, SID and serial number assignment also.

Need radio code for 2002 Chevy Impala


Did you happen to disconnect the battery for some reason? If so, all you should need to do is call the Chevy Dealer and talk to the parts department. Explain to them that you need the code to unlock your radio. They will probably ask you for the VIN number. This is what happened to me when I put the stock radio back into my Saturn. The dealer gave me the number and it worked. I hope this helps you!

How do i remove my present onstar system and replace it with a digital system? Also whete is my current onstar system peices located st so i can remove them? 2002 buick rendezvous cx.


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.

I have a 2002 chevy s10 extreme bouth it in 2002


Go to faxonautoliterature and put your truck in on the home page. When your truck page comes up, scroll down to the bottom. They have a manual there on swapping motors. From experience it should give you part numbers, modifications needed and pictures, everything you'll need to know to do your job. It cost's $24.95. Hope this helps.
