Since noone else gave you a good answer I will. I lost some cables to mine a while ago and found this awesome jerry rig solution; Go to radio shack, and ask for '14-16 gauge star ring terminal connectors' Should come in a pack of 10 and be about 2$. On the back of the unit where these connectors fit, there should be two prongs. You will need two star-rings for each connector slot. Wire up your connectors and crimp the ends LIGHTLY with a pair of pliers. The star-ring connector connected to the negative wire should be inserted to the left prong, (left if you are facing the back of the unit), and the right prong is the positive. If you did everything correctly, you should be able to make your own wires for sony stereo systems whenever you need to. Saved my ***, hope it did the same for you. Here is a link to what they look like. http://www.shopping.com/radio-shack-non-insulated-crimp-on-star-ring-terminals-10-pack/info
The connectors for all GM oem radios for this car/year are the same. The place that sold you the new radio should be able to provide a patch cable with a connector at one end that fits the aftermarket radio, and one or more connectors at the other end that fit into the connectors in your car. If you can't get that patch cable from them, try sonicelectronix.com. These cables are usually unique to the brand of your aftermarket radio. Although it's a bit late, It's a good idea to check that these patch cables are available from the seller before buying the radio.
If you can't find a patch cable and the cable that came with the new radio has no connector(s) on one end, you will need to splice those wires to the correct wires going to the old radio connector, and for that you will need the wiring diagram for both your car and the new radio. You should be able to get the wiring schematics for your car from Alldatadiy.com, and your new radio should have come with a connector pinout description.
the 1103 uses an onboard charger. Charger's life span is about 3 years; some fail in 6 months, some in 6 years keep in mind. You can charge the 1103 using an offboard charger which are available for about $50.00 on Ebay. Search for electric wheelchair charger. You want one that has a 4 to 6 amp rating.
The offboard charger has a 3-prong connector on one end and the other plugs into a grounded wall outlet. Plug the charger into an outlet and the three prong connector into the female three prong connector located at the bottom front of the joystick. Give it a good overnight charge and it should be back up to snuff in the morning.
Check to make sure that the radio is on AM not FM or LSB or USB. There is Also a power control on the front of the radio turn it up half way and see if this might be your problem.If it still does not have any power out put,put the radio on usb or lsb make sure that your modulation is turned up and talk into the mike to see if you have any output.If you do have output on ssb mode the am regulator is most likely bad. ( Q 51 & Q 53) wich is located in the right hand side of the radio.
I tried to locate one for you on eBay, but had no luck. You best bet would be to go to the Raymarine website, and find a local dealer or contact Raymarine directly. Here is a direct link to their customer support page:
