stop at you're local parts store and buy an adapter they're usuall under 10 bucks, take you're new aftermarket stereo with you to make sure it's the right fit Was there a plug in for the aftermarket with the wires? You may have to clip the old plugin off and splice the wires together. Hopefully the aftermarket came with a wiring diagram. If not trace what wire goes where and start splicing. If you are not comfortable doing this you can just pay a shop that puts these systems in to do it.

There isn't one. If you wand an AUX input, you need to buy an adapter or an aftermarket stereo. There isn't one. If you wand an AUX input, you need to buy an adapter or an aftermarket stereo.

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.

who says you can't? I replaced the stereo myself on my 93 ford explorer with an aftermarket stereo with no problem.

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....

If you're looking to install an aftermarket stereo system then you need to purchase a dash install kit. You can pick them up at Walmart if need be, they're about $20. The dash install kit comes with instructions for how to safely remove the factory stereo and install the aftermarket one.*If you want to keep some of the safety features, such as the "dinging when you manually turn on the driving lights and turn the car off" you'll need to pick up the wiring kit to go with the dash install kit.

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.

I put an aftermarket system in my intrigue, and don't recall a "stereo accessory wire". Do you mean the power antenna wire? Or is this a wire on your aftermarket box? Here's a GM diagram: http://www.installdr.com/Harnesses/GM-Wiring.pdf

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.

You can install an after-market stereo in an on-star equipped vehicle, just go to crutchfield.com, but you lose the on-star functionality.

Usually, Infinity Sound makes them. If you bought it second-hand it might be an aftermarket stereo

The Factory radio for the 1997 Nissan Maxima was a capable stereo for its time . Now they have made aftermarket stereo CD players which has more power and also other features which weren't available in the late 1990's .

As far as I know the car's computer signals the radio to produce the chime. I noticed that when i installed an aftermarket stereo, the chimes all disappeared. This isn't a huge problem, you just have to make sure that you don't forget to turn off your lights. If you want to get rid of it, you could install an aftermarket stereo. not the best solution, i know.

The color codes are different depending on the model and year. Your best bet would be to go to a best buy, circuit city, or aftermarket stereo shop and buy the wiring harness for your car. They are relatively inexpensive and easy to install.
