Audio (and aftermarket electronics) This is your place for alarms, remote starters, to brag about your system, exaggerate your db levels, or simply ask questions for stock or aftermarket audio. No Flames! (except from roasted amps)

Yeah. I put electrical tape over all the wires, just in case. Thanks though.

id go and drop the $10 on the wiring adapter kit at autozone. that way, you know for sure everything is correct. GM sometimes changes the wire colors between years. if you just wire the new stereo to the adapter thats designed to plug into your stock stereo'* plug you should be golden. plus that way, you retain the same key on, key off 5 minute delay feature if your car has that. in your new adapter harness, yellow is hot, red is key on hot.

I actually finished it all up about 5 weeks ago. I got the wiring harness, and the faceplate, cost about $60 total at Canadian Tire. Looks and sounds great now.
