Non-Beretta Stock GM Radio/CD Player?

Postby 2.2H8TA » Tue Dec 20, 2011 5:00 am

Has anyone ever installed a radio from another GM car in they're Beretta before?
I'm trying to figure out what will fit/work. I'm sick of this POS alpine deck I have. It don't read CD's right, and it skips going over bumps.
I'm thinking something out of an 00'-05' Monte Carlo, Impala or Malibu.
Looks like this.

Will this fit? Anyone used something different? Will it all hook up right?

Look up a cd player wiring harness for your car and look at the list of other GM's that use the same plug. That will tell you if it will plug in, then all you gotta do is make sure the radio physically fits! :wink:

Many of the TheftLock system units will not work. Not to mention some of them have "ears" in odd places, such as the radio in my brothers S10, which came from a much newer vehicle. The theftlock was disabled, but he had to cut the dash to fit the unit due to mounting ears on the top corners.

Pretty much any unit from the same year(s) GM should do fine.

And if you're problem is just CD issues, it just may be that you need a good head unit, more than a delco one.

My Sony head unit I bought is rock solid, no skips to date. Love that radio. I used a faceplate adapter, and supported the unit with wood above and below, so it can't flop around. (keep in mind, they are small pieces, so they don't block the radio vents, but they make the radio fit tight to the adapter)

Good luck.

Thanks for the info above. I want something from a GM car, because the stock radio is much easier to use, and read. (Buttons and such)
I can get a used stock radio cheaper than buying a new aftermarket HU. Whatever I get just has to have a CD player in it. I'll use that list above, and try and find something worth getting. Thanks for the help.

sometimes you just have to inspect the wires and where they are in the connector, and shift a few around i have heard.
