(Just ignore all this if you could just give me a run-down on how to install an aftermarket head unit with this adapter assuming I have the premium non-bose sound system with on-star.)
I have installed subs in my car with the factory head unit, that's all the experience I have with audio so I have a few questions about installing a head unit.
1) This question may answer them all. Where do I plug in the rca wires in the picture of that adapter? Does my car have a factory amp or something that they plug into?
2) I have the premium sound system (cd player, not bose, I don't think) with on-star. Is there something I will have to do to install a head unit other than just a plug and play wiring harness thingy having to deal with the factory amp (if there is one)?
3) What all is there to do involved with the wiring harness? Here's my knowedge of all I have to do so far:
Remove dash, take factory radio out (unplug a couple connectors from the back).
Connect those connectors to the aftermarket harness.
Plug the harness into the new radio.
Expansion on my knowledge of the instructions would help loads.
