Default new ride, audio in question

So i got my new Bonneville and i would love to keep the stock look. In my old bonneville i had a stereo with a slide out 7 inch touch screen and it took forever to install and was nice. i was able to pull that from the wreck with only minor scratches.

my main question is, is it possible to install an audio in to our stock stereos? i would love to be able to do this ahha, it would make things really convenient


thanks in advance.

haha thats fine, its the same car, different color.


and the names dan hahaha


i found something on here about taking the stereo all apart and patching it in like that, and i could manage something like that, but i was looking for something as simple as, replacing the tape function with an axillary in function.

You can get an adapter from PAC (and others) that will add AUX inputs to a CD changer input.

Those are expensive though. $70 is the cheapest i found, and your stereo must be trunk cd-changer compatible. (i think all 00+'* are, aren't they?) aCid added a direct line in on a 96+ radio, and i followed his lead on a 93 radio, so i assume you could do the same thing with yours without too much trouble, and for about $10.

If you start to tackle the project without help or an FSM, one thing you'll need before you start is the pinout for the plugs in the back of the radio so you know which wire is which inside the radio. One of my radios had the pinout stamped in the radio chasis and one didn't.

This is all well and good but NOT for a 2000+ Bonneville. If your signature is accurate, you have a 2000 Bonneville. Your radio is unique to 2000, 2001 and 2002 ONLY. A modification to a '96 radio will not apply - they are in no way similar! The ONLY way I know of to get an aux input is with the afore mentioned adapter into your changer wiring. If you don't have the changer harness, it can be added:
