Lightbulb Sirius Install Idea 2000+

Since I know the members of this forum like new ideas on adding toys into their Bonnevilles I thought I would share the clever use of the overhead cubby hole I came up with.

I had the Sirius unit from my old Grand Prix which had an aftermarket deck w/AUX input and I pondered for a month trying to find a neat and clean way to add it to the 2002 Bonneville. After pulling down the overhead console I was able to tap into the wiring to the cig lighter in order to have the Sirius power up automatically with the key and turn off after 10 minutes via the RAP. Also removing the map lights helped me hide all the wiring above the headliner and run the antenna along the front edge of the headliner and down the passenger side to the trunk lid. I then ran an audio feed down the drivers side A-Pilar and behind the knee bolster to a cassette adapter with all the wires behind the radio trim.

What do you guys think?

Nice! why dont you try to get that pac peice for an aux input? then you dont have to use the cassette tape method. Very nice utilization though! You are the type of installer I like working with. You didnt rush to a decision of where to put the unit and it paid off in the end. two thumbs up on the install! Now get an aux input peice and stop using that 1980'* technology
