    Default 2000 Suburban - CD Player Dead. What now?

    The CD player which is part of the OEM radio is dead. I do NOT want to muck around with replacing the radio.

    1. Is it possible to install a 2nd CD player, and say, put it in the glove box and simply plug it into the back of the existing radio?

    2. Are there CD players without the radio, faceplate, buttons, etc - that can sever as a 2nd player? I know that I've seen these things in the past that guys installed in their trunks but can't find them on the web.. Not sure what to search for.

    Thanks in advance.

    You WILL have to replace it. What you want would be even more work to do, its easy to do if you are just replacing with another OEM cd player.

    replacing it with an aftermarket cd is cheaper then trying to buy another oem cd player

    But I've seen guys post about the problems that they encounter with the alarms, OnStar, speakers...etc. when they install a new radio... this is NOT my area of knowledge, but I read about having to buy an "adapter" for $150 or so... Zooks!

    Salvage yard for a factory radio replacement or even ebay if you don't want aftermarket, shouldn't be to bad on the pocket.

    you should be able to purchase the mounting kit & a wiring harness adapter for less than $50. Circuit city, Radio Shack, Crutchfield et al will be able to help you. VERY easy to do. Your vehicle doesn't have On Star, does it? My 2001 Silverado 2500HD did, but I swapped in an after market radio with the mentioned kits in about 30 minutes - never had a problem with it in 8 years.
    You're driving is WAY more offensive than my swearing, assjack!!!
