take off the dash then you need to unscrew the CD player and pull out the wire. (make sure that you have the harness for the new CD player and for the car.) splice the old wires and reatach them with the new harness wires,(they should be color coded and matched) then plug the new car adapter harness into the harness for the CD player. After all that, plug your antenna adapter into the back of the CD player and then screw everything back in. Note that you might need the dash installation kit, because usually the CD players are smaller than the stock players. -Shocker

CD player installin my Buick, i had to take apart part of the dash and unscrew 4 bolts holding in the stock CD player. and then you have to have an antenna adapter, dash kit, and a factory harness which you can get for pretty cheap. and then you just use the instructions that came with the factory harness and CD player, done. :D

Can you use an aftermarket DVD player to replace the factory DVD player in a 2003 Chevrolet trailblazer?

Assuming the aftermarket DVD player is for automobile: If the DVD manufacturer states that it could be used for the Trailblazer, it is likely that it will work. You might have to modify the bracket holder, the fascia and some other trim pieces. If you try to use a DVD player that does not design for the vehicle, the electrical connector and wiring will be incomparable with the ones in the vehicle and it won't work.

Visit your local Best Buy store, they have a mounting kit that adapts an aftermarket CD player to fit the opening. They also have a wiring harness that plugs directly into the factory wiring.

Do you have to put a CD player for subwoofers?

no, a factory CD player can be used in a vehicle that has subwoofers attached. as long as the factory CD player in the vehicle has treble, bass, and subwoofer controls on it, it will be fine. if not, an aftermarket CD player will be the solution. with subwoofers, you need to control the amount of power that are ran through them. the amplifier is a control, but if not set correctly on the CD player, you could blow your subwoofers.

Why doesn't my CD-R play on my car CD player?

If you have a factory CD player, an old aftermarket CD player, or a cheap aftermarket CD player it most likely is not CD-R compatible or your music is in a format that the player doesn't support such as; AAC, WMA, and a few others. Your only option would be to get a new CD player that is compatible with mp3 cds, or if your stereo supports an external CD changer(alot of radios do, even factory radios) you can get a CD changer that supports mp3 cds, or just live with only listening to regular cds in your car. To get a better idea of your options you should go to your local car audio shop and talk to them about your issue. Also there is a possibility that you have a defective disk, burner, or had a problem when your disk was burned(happens alot). Try the disk in another player(not a computer). Aftermarket= did not come on the car originally.

What dose aftermarket navigation system mean?

An aftermarket navigation system simply refers to a navigation system that was not originally a part of the original car or place of installation. For example, if you do not like the CD player that came with your car and you decide to get a new one and have it installed. You have just purchased an "aftermarket" CD player. The same applies for a navigation device.
