I just did the whole process today.. got a gm wiring harness ( I wanted to keep my door chimes), gm atenna adapter and a mounting kit and i found that the hardest part of the whole process was trying to shove the stupid deck into the mounting kit with the huge cluster of wires right behind it

Eh. Most people are feeding you a line because they don't understand why they need to put radio replacement modules in. The long and short of it is that the shop is liable for all work done, and in most parts of the world it's actually illegal to disable door chimes, as it's a safety mechanism.

Theoretically, you should be able to request they do it anyway (similarly to how you can request to have dvd players play whilst driving) and as long as you claim all liability, they'll do it. But again, most shops don't KNOW this, so they feed you that line to avoid trouble.

That, and in other cars it DOES disable important systems (abs, drl, etc.), so they assume the cavs are the same way, lack of knowledge again.

You have to tap into the windshield wiper fuse, yes.

some ppl just need to stop being lazy and read this post. EVERYTHING YOU COULD EVER WANT TO KNOW is right hear. just ask for a 2000 tracker harness or scosche gm-05b ( same thing) problem solved. you need a switched acc line and the rest is straight forward. I walked outta best buy cause the guy was a straight up dumba$$ and didn't know his facts. This site is my second bible (Of coarse holy bible is #1). This beats gm's service manuel because there are ppl that have actually completed projects gm says wasn't possible. Thank you john for the wisdom you have given me from everything you have ever posted (and sry there's only 1 god and it's not you sry). Thanks much to others also.

Another question John. I did the eco swap in my 99 and had to change my interior harness obviously but I'm having trouble with the rear speakers. the harness is out of an 01 ls w/ the 2.4l. I have four wires per rear speaker. Don't recall colors and this time but they DO NOT match the color scheme of the monsoon harness. I'm assuming it's a premium sound system. I did not have the head unit or speakers from the 01 and I have a cheap pioneer and polk 4x6's in the front as well as pold mmc 690's in the rear w/ electronic crossover that I originally had in the 99. Any info would be helpful. searched everywhere but no luck. Otherwise i'll rock to the 4x6's until I get this solved or I stupidly blow them.

Pull it directly out of the back and but the $10 adapter. Do not cut it.

Just to make a note - I used the Geo Tracker harness this weekend to install a deck into my 2000 Sunfire GT, and after hooking everything up I had no sound coming out of the speakers. After doing some quick .org searching I realized that the Tracker harness doesn't have a wire in the right PIN to run the pink wire that powers the Monsoon amp... odd. I had to move the pin over 1 slot and hook it up to the acc power wire and all was well.

I just wanted to post this up because I didn't find anybody that had my issue, but I DID find Lanman's list of the wires @ the deck which was tremendously helpful, so I hope this helps somebody in the future.

FYI the radio mount bracket and the harness for aftermarket radio are the same as needed for Colorado and Canyon pickups.
I just swapped my panasonic radio from my 06 GMC canyon into my fiances 01 cavy.

alrighty guys, sorry for bringing back the dead

but @!#$

i bought a factory radio from the yard

i guess its rds
who knows

00-02

i tried the holding the buttons thing, doesn't work

people say i have to get a tech 2 plugged in so they can unlock it
but i dont wanna spend 100 to do it

so

can anyone tell me how to, or what wire to cut and whatnot

please help. thanks

If it has the three letters "RDS" on the front plate, then it's got the RDS feature. But RDS has nothing to do with the security lockout.

The ONLY way to reflash a 2000+ GM class 2 radio, is to use a Tech 2 diagnostic tool to "relearn" the VIN from the BCM.

There is no wire you can cut. I don't know where you heard that, but it's 1000% wrong. Holding buttons only works on the pre-2000 radios. You do not need the old VIN, the radio does not care.. the only people that might is the GM dealer who reflashes the BCM, but they may only want that to verify it's not a stolen radio. But who really cares about a ten year old factory radio?? No one I know of.

Guess im the only one with problems. I have no power going to my cd player. I have a black wire coming from the cd player itself (a long one) and a black one coming from the harness, do I connect them? Or do I ground one to the body? If so which one? I have two orange and one blue one with nothing connected to them. Is this how they are suppose to be? THen I fuse taped the windshield wipers. Now I have a red wire from the cd player and a red one from the harness. Do I hook them both to the fuse taped wire to make a three way or do I just attach one of the wires if so which one. Thanks for the help if anybody can help me.

The red wire is the power constant, connect those together. Yyou run the switched wire from the wiper fuse to the switched power on the back of your head unit.

Black is ground, you can connect those.

I know if you read back through the beginning it has this explained.

I've got a 2000 Sunfire GT convertible and want to replace the original factory radio with a factory radio from a 2005. Is a 2005 Sunfire radio with MP3 a direct swap? Understand I would have to take to the dealer to reflash the BCM. Also, I've read the 2000's were 2 DIN, but the dash opening is 1.5 DIN. Any other considerations? The reason for the question is factory radio application guides are for either 00-03 or 04-05.

Thanks,
Jay

Yup, plug and play. Same connector and all. You might get lucky and not have to go to a dealer... but most likely you will to get that BCM flashed.

are we still using the same plugs or are there newer plugs available now (7 years later from post date) that make for an easier plug and play?

I have a 99 sunfire and have an in dash I want to use in my new 02 cavy.

any sort of new info or tips?

a friend put mine in for me he took the factory cd player out and he just cut the plug part off and wired them together (he had to touch them together til he found out what went to what) it all worked fine but after a few weeks all of my clusters started to mess up and the one day i tried to drive it and it would not come out of park so we had some guy come look at it and he unplug-ed something and now it comes out of park but my clusters (only shows how many miles i had be for it messed up dosent keep counting) maplight cig radio dont work what do i need to do to fix it and do i need a new harness or what

He cut the harness? Well that's the first mistake. What year is your car?
