Default HELP! - CD Player Install - 2000 Bonneville

ok so I am trying to find the adapters and such to get an after market CD player installed in a 2K bonne. I want the volume controls on the steering wheel to continue to work.

long story short, I picked up an adapter from ebay that says it works and it will not even fit the connector and after searching around here and other forums it sounds like there is not a direct plug and play product out there.... I am a little confused by this....

so I have the cd player and the hardware mounting kit.... what else do I need?

if there is not an adapter what do I need to buy to get this installed?

I hit a few posts here that said to buy a Cadillac adapter and cut it up?

any help will be greatly appreciated.

thanks in advance.

with that ribbon harness all you will have is connections for the CD player, and you will lose your chimes that play through the front door and ive heard of some issues with the way power is handled with that harness, if you can put out a little more money im pretty sure the model is GM14B, that is a harness that will keep your chimes and will power everything correctly

all of this is just to power and connect the head unit, nothing on the steering wheel

for that first what kind brand of head unit are you trying to put in?
if it came with a remote you can use the PAC-SWIX you can google that and find one about $60 i would say, same for the radio ribbon harness

doing an aftermarket upgrade right on our cars isn't cheap
let me know if you need any more help

wow, thats pretty steep, ok option 2 can I get a gm replacement? I know once they are removed from the car (with out proper procedure) they lock themselves. our cd player quit working completely.

I have a low end sony cd player i was going to throw in it but if a GM replacement is easier that will be fine. I am hesitant about ebay but also do not want to spend a fortune.

any suggestions?

yah it cost me a lot to put in the aftermarket stuff,

you can get a gm replacement, it would be used but you could check out Morad Parts Company - 3800 Motors, Transaxles, & Stock Parts, they have an ebay store where you can buy stuff and have it shipped unless you are around here in cleveland

I found this on the net, Instructions to the CR2-GM32R made by PAC. http://www.pac-audio.com/instructions/c2r-gm32r.pdf This will allow you to save all your chimes. The link to the cheapest place on the net is here---> PAC C2R-GM32R (pac-c2rgm32r) Buick Wiring Harnesses In-Dash Receiver Accessories & Installation Car Accessories and Installation Car Audio and Video - Sonic Electronix

This saves your "Dock N' Lock" system. I have done a lot of research as well as priced components.

yah thats about what i payed for mine, then you still need the antenna adapter, the steering wheel control interface, about another $70, if you still want to do it go for it but a factory replacement might be cheaper

one other thing trying to get an aftermarket radio fit into the not very deep opening in the dash was a PITA, i had to use a soldering iron and sacrifice a tip to actually melt some plastic out of the back of the dash
