i was wondering if i had to by the adapter for the factory an aftermarket radio to work thanks zach
If you are talking about an adapter for the wiring harness, then you can go to best buy or some place like that to get the adapter that will plug into the factory wiring harness and into the back of the after market radio.
usually you can get most adapters at best buy or any car audio store
can i use the cheap one or do i have to by the one for the bose radio
I have a Trailblazer 02 with a Bose system in it (UQA).
I changed to a DVD player into the front and removed the bose system.
I could not use the Bose amplifier due to the lack of the special interface needed to get the ding dong sound back and it is to expensive.
I simply removed the radio unplugged the two larger connectors from the amp. then connected my DVD's internal amp. to the speakers.
It works fine, and I'm happy.
If you want to keep using the bose amp, then yes you need to get the more expensive one for the bose radio.
It can be done but i've heard that its a pain in the butt to do custom systems if you have a stock bose system. Something about the wiring and you cant use the bose amp.
I was very irritated on the blonk, blonk sound every time I opened a door, or started the engine without the seat belt on.
Now it is silent..... so nice, until yesterday, when it hit me....
Crap!! The end of fuel warning sound was also lost when I unplugged the Bose amp and radio.
Well I may have to save up to one of those units that keeps the irritating blonk, blonk sound, or build something of my own.
You could just watch ur gauges...
It's not good to run ur tank empty u know...
Yes, true. But I was use to that the car was warning me....
