Hello,

Follow the below steps:

  1. Review your car's owner's manual to see if it has any tips on removing the current stereo. It may have a diagram of the wiring and the area where the stereo is installed.
  2. Disconnect the battery to avoid an electrical short while working with the wiring.
  3. Use a screwdriver to remove the retaining screws holding in your car stereo. Grab hold of the stereo and pull it toward you to remove it from the dashboard.
  4. Get a pair of DIN tools to slip on either side of the stereo, if the stereo connects to the dash using spring clips and bolts. These thin tools slide in easily, release the clips, and allow the stereo to come out easily. You may need to remove dash panels when bolts hold in the stereo. Take out the bolts and screws that hold the stereo in, and then simply pull it out.
  5. Look at the wires on the back of your car stereo. You should see 2 wires attached to the stereo. A wiring clip protects the stereo from vibrations and holds the wiring harness steady.
  6. Pry the wires up from the stereo and loosen them using a pulling/pushing motion. After working the wires back and forth, you should be able to pull the wires straight out.
I hope the above helps.

Good luck.

I need a new cable that connects the CD to the sub-woofer.


CDs are round discs that have audio files on them. I assume you want to connect your CD Player to a subwoofer... try Amazon.

What does the plus/minus button on the chevy malibu shifter do?


Hi there,
I suppose its a sports mode function where the + enables you to upshift and the - to downshift.
Try using this mode when you are driving as you might like it if you used to drive manual cars before...
Cheers

Programing stations


I have included a step by step to store your stations. The cables are meant for a sub and yes your system does support a sony cd changer. To install a changer you have to pull the deck and there is a outlet on the back.

Amp and sub bass playing through all speakers


You need to go into the setup menu and find out if the radio has a sub low-pass filter that redirects the bass to the pre-out for the subs, and away from the main speakers. Fiddle in the audio menu.

Amp help


it might not be the amp that is not working it could be the sub or sub's. Try takeing a sub out of the box and look down the hole in the center of the magnet on the back of the sub and look and see if you can see any wire's or any thing that has come unwound in the sub and if you do see wire's then you have blown your sub. If you dont see any wires then you could completly disconect your amp for 20 to 25 minutes and then plug it back in and see if that fix's your problem. If none of this works then you can take your amp to an audio store and have them test the circut board in your amp.
