Default Hooking up a GM 12 CD changer

Has anyone installed a Pontiac 12 CD Changer in the trunk on a GXP that did not come with one from the factory?.Does anyone know if the wire harness is in the trunk on cars without the CD changer and if so where is it located?I installed one on my 1999 Trans Am and the wire harness was already in the trunk.Just plugged it in and mounted it.Very easy.Also what years CD Changers from GM work fora 2004 GXP and will other GM cars work?I also have XM Satilite Radio.Thanks

We kinda touched on this in an unrelated thread...
http://www.bonnevilleclub.com/forum/...ic.php?t=47072

But, if we're going to get an answer, we probably need a dedicated thread.

I have also installed a GM CD changer in my F-body, using the existing wires.
So, one of the first questions to answer is; where is the CD changer located in the GXP trunk? Does anyone have a picture handy? If I had a clue, then I'd go looking for the wires.

I believe that the CD changer is mounted on the passenger side of the trunk, in the wall, near the top. The carpeted trunk molding is different too and the changer is behind it, with the face sticking out. I have not seen one in person, i am basing this on pics i have seen.

Default Send photo and part no.

That would be great if you can send photo and can you get the part or model no. that is on the side or back of the 12 CD Disc Changer.I found one and want to make sure its the right model no and will work.Does your 2005 GXP have XM Satilite radio also.I don know if that makes a difference or not.The model no. on the one I found is 25659167 and its on a white sticker on the CD changer.Thanks.

Mine does have XM radio too. there seem to be slot of trim pieces around the changer but I will try to get it removed soon.

the Harness is NOT in the trunk if you didnt get it from the factory your screwed....unless you make a custom harness

its a fair amount of work, and some special GM Terminals to complete the connections at the Stock Radio
