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)

Just shot this video this evening.

Enjoy!

P.*. I just got an iPhone...I shot the video on it and uploaded it to YouTube in a couple minutes. This is my first "smartphone." I am amazed by what these things can do. Something, isn't it?

Great job! I didn't think it was possible, either, but I guess splicing in the BCM and the OBD-II connector would do it. Now, go confuse some dealership techs.

Hey, thanks!

You're exactly right. I took a Dash Integration Module (DIM) out of a 2001 Bonneville, secured it in the spare tire well, and wired it into the car and created my own data bus. I also soldered in the 16-pin Data Link Connector (DLC) to allow a Tech 2 scanner to interface with the Class 2 Data bus, reprogram the radio or the DIM, etc. The DIM also converts the steering wheel control voltage to a Class 2 signal. In addition, I obtained a 12-disc CD changer from a 2001 Aurora and a CD changer harness from a 1997 Camaro and connected that to the radio, also adding the changer to the data bus, so everything communicates via Class 2 just like in a newer vehicle.

Funny you mentioned the confused GM technicians. I've had a few puzzled looks already.
