you are better off leaving the factory CD player because the theft system, pwr locks, etc. are all connected through the CD player and will not work if u remove it unless u re-wire the factory CD player to the trunk.
you have take to factory out of the car. And connect the wires together
In mine...the factory mounted CD player is in the center console.
I don't think there was a factory CD player for the 1988 corvette. The Bose was a cassette player that measures 1.5 din
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.
Yes, there was a factory CD player in a1992 Buick Regal. It was separate from the radio like the cassette player. It was referred to as a Remote or Slave CD player.
once a CD is stuck in the player, the player is no good. to take the player out,you have two covers on each side of the player covering a pair of holes. you need to purchase these removal pins from an auto part store like oreilly's or a Mazda dealership can remove for you sometimes for free. to remove the CD, you will have to remove the top half of the screws of the player and remove the CD hold down
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. -ShockerCD 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
is it factory or an add on?
Yes you got it
