We have put an aftermarket car stereo in a car with the controls on the steering wheel. You have to check to see if an aftermarket wiring harness is available for that year and model.

Yes, an aftermarket stereo radio can replace a Bose radio in a 1997 Nissan Maxima. Remove the old radio from the dash and put in the new one. A new mounting frame might be required to make the new radio fit properly.

Contact crutchfield radio / electronics they will provide you with a free wiring harness when you purchase the radio thru them which will allow you to connect your radio without effecting the cars other electrical systems. the 1996 to 1998 Honda civic has the keyless entry module built into the factory radio, you will have to wire the factory radio in-line with your aftermarket radio, most people then hide the factory radio under the center console. your other options would be to go without keyless entry or install an aftermarket unit.

To remove the stereo off of a 1999 Honda Civic loosen all of the mounting screws for the center console. Pull out the console is loosen the stereo mounting screws. With everything off pull the stereo and unplug the radio.

You ask the government for welfare money, then use it to buy a radio instead of feeding your kids.

To install an aftermarket stereo in a 2003 Montana you need to first buy a trim plate or a mounting bracket. Remove the dash panel. Disconnect the ground cable from the battery. Remove the factory stereo. Unplug the factory wiring harness from the radio. Connect the new radio. Test it and reassemble the dash. Reconnect the negative battery terminal.

This vehicle has the round dash panel surrounding the radio and climate controls. If your climate controls are the 3 turn-knobs and not the full electronic controls, then yes, you can put in aftermarket stereo. Just be aware that the dash panel replacement, along with the wiring harness (which is very very long) won't be cheap. Normally you can easily pay 65-80 or more. Then comes the fun of the install. The tuner pack for this factory stereo is in a box that is mounted in the trunk where the antenna is located. You will have to access that and then your purchased harness/antenna adapter will plug into the factory wiring plug and antenna. You must then run that long stretch of wires all the way up to the front and behind the dash up to the factory opening. These will then connect to your aftermarket radio. Hank

no. first check fuses. check ground. check for voltage to memory, and switched power to radio. the only time the antenna would affect the radio in that manner is if the ground was connected to the antenna.

There is no way possible to remove the stereo and replace it with an aftermarket stereo. I have talked to 15 Nissan Dealers and Nissan head technical office. They all state that it can not be done. --+Skifo How Much

Yes, but you'll need to buy a dash kit in addition to the radio. You're looking at about $75 for the dash kit and another $15-30 for the wire harness, etc. Also, unless you get a double DIN radio to replace the stock one, there will be a large pocket in the middle of the dash.

No. Worst case scenario is you will have to reprogram any aftermarket Radio/DVD/Stereo.

I have installed the radio and when the ignition is in the on position it works.When I start the vehicle,it shuts off.Why?

Depending on the year you need a certain chip which will plug into the back of the stereo. The chip controls the sounds the vehicle makes on the inside ( dinging chimes etc. ). The chip will run you about 80$. After that it's all plug and play.

how do i install a aftermarket radio in a dodge caravan

only the dealership can unlock the radio,and they charge more than its worth,better off getting an aftermarket stereo and having it installed!

The steering wheel controls are probably bad The only fuse is the radio fuse and if the radio works the fuse is OK Also if you do not have the original stereo, and your new stereo does not have a place to plug in those controls they will not work.

pull it out and disconnect the harness. put a new harness on so when you sell it you can out your stock radio back in.

You should remove the factory car radio. It really is inexpensive. Just remove it, put an aftermarket alarm in, and an aftermarket deck. Any other attempts or circumvents usually cause problems. I have a 97 civic and that process is exactly what I did and it was the best decision I have ever made.

if its a factory radio, then the fuse box... if it's an add on radio, you'll have to trace the power wire to the fuse box or battery d

Same as most cars. You need a dash kit to adapt the DIN size aftermarket radio to the GM DIN and a half opening, then you need the appropriate wiring adapter so the plug from the aftermarket unit can plug into the Lumina's plug.

if your stereo is no longer illuminated, sorry for your luck. these bulbs are inside the radio unit, and are soldered in place, if you are familiar with how to solder, you might be able to disassemble the radio, and replace them, but its probably less frustrating and time consuming to replace the stereo, with a new or aftermarket unit.

If the face plate of the original factory radio is Oval, like the 1997 escort, you can get a new radio faceplate that will accept a standard aftermarket radio from crutchfield. Mine cost $49 back in 1997. It even takes the original A/C and rear defroster controls.

there is no accesory switch wire on the 02 must run your accessory wire from your aftermarket radio to the thick brown wire coming out of the ignition to the left of the radio bay and put a fuse in the wire close to where you tapped into the brown wire on the wire from your radio also your door chimes will work again

You have to go purchase an aftermarket wiring harness. that will plug into the factory harness then you can wire it to the aftermarket radio.

Turn key to be able to sift gear. Place gear into 1st. Use flat screwdirver to pop off dash piece that surrounds stereo. Remove stereo. Install New Stereo. Put everything back in its place....

To remove a stock stereo from a 2005 Honda Civic LX all the mounting bolts need to be off. The center console will have all the necessary screws removed to reach the mounting bolts. When all the bolts are removed the radio unit will slide out.
