Biggallo55, can you put your year and trim level in your sig file?

Not all Bonnevilles come with a separate amp for the rear speakers, heck not all Bonnevilles came with rear speakers at all. (Mine didn't!) But maybe all Bonnevilles with steering wheel controls come with a premium stereo, with rear speakers and an amp for them.

In any case, yes, it sounds like a stock 95-99 CD head unit will fit your needs pefectly and maintain 100% compatibility with your steering wheel controls. I do see them frequently on eBay, and they should be fairly well available at salvage yards.

And, as I look at it, I don't know why I referred you to that article. You have a '96, you should be able to plug n play without any modification if you get a 95 or newer CD player. The article is good if you're putting a newer CD in a 92-93. All you need to do is yoink your tape deck out, connect the wires to your new CD unit, bolt it in, and start listening to your favorite Polka CDs!

I believe some of the newer Eclipse HUs can be interfaced with steering wheel controls.

On the wiring harness I have on mine, it has a brown wire and a brown with a black stripe. I didnt know what they were for and started looking around and found out they were for steering wheel controls.

I guess you can actually download something and burn it to a cd and it will upgrade the software on some of the newer HUs to work with steering wheel controls.

I didnt research it that much, because I didnt need too since mine is older. But im sure other companies might have something similar.

eclipse radios can only be interfaced w/ toyota/lexus SWC'* without purchase of a mod box to adapt them to other makes, since eclipse is the OEM premium sound manufacturer for Toy/lex

I will use rca jacks that will be used on high level inputs to the amp. With a stock deck but with cd player, that would be cool cause then not only would I keep the controls on the steering but also dont need a cd changer.
did not have a 2-wayu alarm?
