2005 Pontiac Sunfire aftermarket audio system install

Hi,
I have a 2005 Pontiac Sunfire and Have an aftermarket stereo system (pioneer) CD player (1100MP), 800 watt mono amp, 10'' subwoofer and a pair of 4''X6'' speakers for the front doors. Was wondering what kind of harness and wiring i would need and a suggestion of an indash kit for a 2005 sunfire. Also am hearing that I can get an adapter to keep all dash information working and warning chimes.

Any help on this isuue would be greatly appreciated!

You can go to Walmart and in the stereo/speaker department they have dash kits for different vehicles.Just read the box to determine your vehicle. Also, they have amp kits for different wattage amps, but if you had rather buy each item you will need, a Power Wire (to the battery 4g or 8g), a ground wire (to the chassey), a remote wire that should run to a wire from your cd player saying remote (any size is fine), speaker wire (14g or 16g is fine) a set of RCA cables, and if your cd player dosnt have RCA jacks you will have to have a converter.

How do I fix the clock display on my 1999 Pontiac Sunfire?


It appears to be that the radio clock display has malfunctioned, and is due for a replacement radio, which could be an aftermarket or oem radio, maybe found at a junk yard.

Tools required for oem replacement radio, torx keys set.

Before working on the radio or other electronics, disconnect the battery cables with 8mm wrench.

Replacing the oem radio is much easier, if you obtain oem radio, compared to aftermarket radio, due to being direct fit.

The radio is same for 1995 to 1999 Pontiac Sunfire and the Chevy Cavalier, regardless of sub models, such as SE,GT, VL,VLX,Z24. etc.

Parts needed for the the aftermarket radio install :Stereo assembly, stereo wiring harness adapter, radio antenna adapter, and dash install kit.wiring diagram for the wire colors / functions, along with tools, such as torx key set, screwdrivers,wire crimper, wire stripper, double ended wiring connectors, hair dryer.

The oem stereo removal video is for the 2000 to 2005 Sunfire / Cavalier, but are the same or very similar procedures.

How do i wire a aftermarket cd changer to a factory gm car stereo pontiac sunfire 2002


It will all depend what specific system you have in the car and how it is wired. There were a few audio system options in that model of Pontiacs including the Monsoon audio system. Based on what you get today in the aftermarket like JVC there will be wiring changes required including the connectors that link the car sound systems to it.
Please see the pontiac 2002 manual to check which system your model has. Page 3-7 onwards.

Also some information on which JVC you were planning to fit in.
A typical one would look like this .

Installed an aftermarket pioneer stereo in my 2005 Montana. I bought the recommended installation kit, antenna adapter, and wire harness kit. Stereo will not power up. What do I need to do? Please help...


There always the possibility that your Pioneer stereo was DOA but I recommend going back over your installation checking especially for functional matching of the adapter wires. The colors may differ

pioneer keys. Long thin with a tiny barb at the end. You need keys, and remove the radio trim piece. Take to local shop and they can do it in 2 seconds.
