never done an install on a set such as that,, but I have seen Silverados and Sierras with aftermarket head units where your tape deck is. I assume yours is like my Sierra with the tuner right next to the gauge cluster with the tape deck more in the center of the dash?

yeah its set up as such..but i got it figured out there is a silver box kind of looks like a small 2 channel amp under the dash to the right of the steering column and you pull that down and your factory plug/antenna wite is on top of it so you just yank that box out plug in your connectors and put the cd plaer in the dash

Yet i have no sound....Seems there is a hidden issue as my stock tuner would turn on adjust volume change station but no sound not even static........And now my aftermarket cd player is doing the same everything works but i have no sound at all...any ideas

Do you have the FSM for the truck? A schematic would tell us if there'* an amp in line.

On my 95 SSEi the amp didn't require power to pass the signal through, on the 97 SSEi it needed power or you had no sound. Seems you are dealing with a similar situation.

An FSM??????Thing is igot detailed instructions on the install and it said nothing about an inline amp and there are no stray wires that would go with the setup..


heres what i was told and its what i did have everything working but sound

To Install it: 1st reach under the dash and look for a silver (looks almost like an amp) box with a wired plug coming out of the bottom. These are all of the wires that go to your factory stereo. after unplugging it you can easily remove the factory stereo.
Remove the silver box, there is only 1 screw holding it in and it is directly on the bottom. After you remove it, there will be a connector on the top of it which will plug into your Wiring Connector that you should have bought earlier. The antenna wire also plugs into the top of this silver box. After all this the factory stereo should be completely un-installed (no cutting of any wires should have been required)
Next you should take off the piece of plastic that contains the center vents and cubby hole. It is easy to pry with the glove box door open. There are 2 bottom clips that are to be pryed out and the top 2 slide out the bottom. Now you can reroute the set of wires and the antenna wire to the new location of the stereo, this may be kind of tough. Take the Wiring connector you bought and the wiring connector that came with the stereo and crimp all the appropriate wires together using splice connectors and a crimping tool...they should be the same color, but check the instructions that came with the cd player and wiring connector to be sure. After that the connections should slide togethor and the cd player should turn on with the key on. The rest you should be able to figure out since it is only mounting the cd player in the new plastic piece which is very straight forward.
