I would sugguet getting a single din sized player. U can get a better player with more features for a smaller price that way. I would sugguest trying nexxon.com, ikesound and thezeb.com. as far as the power goes it isnt much. not enough to even do anything. if u want good sound u may want to buy some after market speaker and an aftermarket amp.

Are you trying to read burnt cd'* or commercial ones? Alot of the older head units (pre-97) dont like to read the RW cd'*, they can be burnt in different ways, depending on the software thats used.

(Willwren) did the adaptor not work? I think most of the cd players you buy now have the IR port on them, but was under the impression a IR port wasnt wasnt needed for the adaptor since you'd be using the controls on the wheel.

Push the button on the steering wheel, and a signal is sent to the SWI-X. It translates that electrical signal into an IR signal to control the HU. This means the IR emitter has to be at least a foot or two away from the HU, line of sight, no obstructions.

It was a PITA to set up, and operation was flaky at best. This was about a year and a half ago that I tried it in the Bonneville. I threw it in the trash, put the stock stereo in, and added an FM-modulated CD changer in the trunk. I'm a happy camper now.

Hmmm, that does stink. I'll have to check out the setup this kid has in his car and see if he has the same problem.
