2001 Impala LS... I want to remove the OnStar electronics module from my trunk and the antenna mount from the rear window... I have never used the OnStar... Before I disconnect the electronics module I want to be sure that disconnecting it won't throw any DTC codes or cause any other electronics issues... Should be simple but "you never know"... So I ask before I unplug!

I have completely removed the module in the truck of mine with the issues. No codes or anything. Of course my OnStar was not active.

OK. My OnStar has never been active... Does GM still offer OnStar or is it dead?

Your car has an analog Onstar system and wouldn't be useful even if you wanted it. Rip that sucker out and be done with it.

You can use the GPS chipset in the circuit board if you really wanted to, but that's about the only use for the old school OnStar units. Wink

You're all good. I wrapped the connector in electrical tape and tucked it away behind the carpet in the same area.

I did the same and I went to extra mile and removed the antenna. Tucking that connector back up under the headliner was a bit more challenging, but I liked the look of the clean back glass.

I removed the exterior portion of the antenna but never bothered with the part on the inside of the window - the windows were tinted around the antenna and I didn't want a gap in the tint.
