Depending on your knowledge of such things and how much work it will take to get the original radio out. You can look up the radio you are removing on the internet and get a pinout on the connector to tell you what pins supply power and which are speaker connections. Then make the connections accordingly to the new radio layout for power spkrs etc. Sometimes it seems the auto industry puts the radio in first and builds the car around it. I hope this helps .

best buy or most stores that sell new car radios sell wiring adapter kits that simply plug in to your existing harness. It is the easiest way to install an aftermarket radio

You can purchase a in-line amplifier to boost radio signal, or just buy a new deck for less than $100 and get it installed. Great deals out there for decks below $100 installed. Try Best Buy or Fry's electronics.

ok - here is ur best bet - - - remove the radio - - ask a local radio sales and installer like - best buy - etc - - to see how much to install it - - then have them do it - better yet - put the old radio back in first - and see --

could be other things but for say 70.00 u get ur car right - electronics are today - best left to the pros
some of the common radios have built in amps - these amps can draw way too much power -- so let the pro get at it - worth the money in the long run

I need a new radio, not sure which one.


Go to a scrapyard and buy a radio that comes from the same car you have, with the same steering wheel controls. The only difference will then be that the new one works. make note of any security codes and get vin# from vehicle radio was removed from so that anti-theft feature will not prevent it from working. Radio and wiring harness will not change if you obtain radio from identical vehicle.

Metra Part# 70-8113

This is the only part you will require to retain factory amplifier when you switch to an aftermarket radio.

Best Buy does not use Metra Products.

They use cheap American International.

I want talkback on my cobra 29ltd classic radio how do i do this myself


Open the case on your radio. Solder a 100 ohm resistor between the pa jack and ext speaker jack. You can add a switch if you like to turn it on and off. The lower the resistance, the louder the talkback.

Gauges dont work after new cd player install


you will have to go to the gm garage and ask for the wiring diagram to match the wires up. but the way to fix it the right way is to go to the junk yard and cut the harness out of a car and splice the wires back together then go to wall mart or best buy to get the right wiring adapter then you can match them colors up to your new radios wires and plug into your car
