Hi guys....I have a 2001 Chevy Impala that has OnStar and I seem to be one of the owners who have come across the problem of the radio going in and out; more importantly the audio has become intermittent.
I've read on other boards that this problem is because moisture has come in contact with the connector to the amp.
In any case, I want to replace my system and fix this issue of not being able to get any sound because of moisture to the amp.
I want to go with a JVC or Kenwood double din head unit but does anyone know of what else is needed as far as connections so that I can have OnStar (not that I use it mind u but I think it is part of the communications with the car's computer on some vital matters), radio steering controls and just an overall good sound using the stock amp.
You will need a $100 wiring harness adaptor. Call and talk to Crutchfield.

You have an oxy-moron above - generally the stock amp is the weak point of the system in any case and may well be causing the intermittent audio in your specific case.
Ideally you want to bypass the OEM amp when you install the new head unit.

Okay - a few things to clarify ....
Hope This Helps!!!
Anyone else have suggestions?
