Question about Blaupunkt Alicante CD32 CD Player

1 Answer

I need a radio/cd, that would work with my steering wheel control

I bought Chevrolet Kalos in January, which came with Blaupunkt GMDAT CDP (E) radio/cd, however, the audio equip. was faulty. It had a habit of switching on and off whenever it felt like it, so I took it to Drive Vauxhall Chevrolet garage, because it was still under the manufacturer's warranty.
Unfortunately, their service dept. messed me about so much, that in the end they did not send the equip. to Chevrolet and by the time I managed to persuaded them to act, the warranty expired. I still have Network Q warranty in place though.
Many weeks have gone and now they installed Blaupunkt Dresden MP34, but couldn't connect it to the steering wheel controls.
I am furious, because they keep telling me that there are no radios out there, that would connect to my steering wheel controls.
I find this ridiculous, because the car is only 3 years old.
Does anybody know, which radio/cd equipment would be compatible with my Chevrolet Kalos 1.4 SX and would actually work with my steering wheel controls?
I am due to take my car to the garage again, so I want to make sure they are not fobbing me off as usual.

Many thanks

Im sorry but i must be blunt the people who installed your deck were lazy instead look up factory wheel control module on google there is a system that (as long as the deck has any type of remote) allows you to hook this up run a small wire with a out put laser to the front of your deck acting as a remote control if this infact is not the case use crutchfield.com enter in your car information look threw the decks when you find one you like look in eccesorys if its not an option it wont be there :) honestly the jvd avx 820 is amazing for the price check it out it will work with your controls

How do I remove the Blaupunkt CD/radio from a 2007 Chevrolet Kalos. I wish to replace it with an updated unit

A pair of extractors are required (available from Ebay etc ) but these can be made from 2 pieces of bent, wire
coat-hanger or 4 small drills(using the blunt end) or 4 small Allen Keys
or 4 small screwdrivers or 4 nails or even 4 darts.

An assistant is useful to pull the radio out whilst you are releasing the 4
securing clips

note: on some radios , these 4 holes are protected by 4 small screws. These
can be unscrewed using the appropriate size of Allen key.

Do you have the steering wheel controls? If so, my guess is the "source"button on the steering wheel control maybe sticking. If I remember, I'll look at my Impala and see if the contol can be disconnected at the steering wheel.

Chevrolet kalos blaupunkt radio removal problem


Remove the secuirty panel from the front o f the unit.
with a small fine flat bladed screwdriver remove the two facia strips - one either side, CAREFULLY! they are on clips.
You should find four 10mm bolts holding the whole frame in, remove these and you may need to fit a subframe to re-fit your new unit.
Fit your new unit or frame into place, replace the bolts - don't over tightem them - and the trim.
Fit your new unit - Happy motoring!
