i bought an aftermarket radio from crutchfield for $79
I did the same thing. Now I have Bluetooth connection for hands-free calling and to play my own music.

Edit: I don't recall whether the OEM radio had problems or whether I was just modernizing. If I rembered for sure I'd offer my old one. I think it is collecting dust in the garage.

Also, I dimly recall someone refurbs old ones so folks can keep the OEM look. Might search eBay or Amazon.

What am I missing here. I looked into it myself, miky2001, tlynch. I checked Best Buy and Crutchfield and there is more to it than just 79 bucks. There is at least another 100 bucks in installation and wiring kits and even then you are lucky if only half of all the functions and features still work. I looked into it and sorry to say but the after market solution is mediocre and won't do. I haven't decided yet what to do but probably will stay with OEM and pay the crappy reprogramming fee, especially since I value my 6 CD changer.

My total was $102.99 from Crutchfield. The radio was $78. Because I am lazy and don't trust my soldering, I paid an extra $25 for them to prepare the wiring harness connector. Antenna adapter, receiver wiring harness, dash kit and instructions were included. I pulled my cassette deck and replaced it with another storage slot later.

I'd like to think that if my old one was busted, I would have tossed it. Since I have it on a shelf, I assume I pulled it so that I could add Bluetooth hands free. If you PM me your address, I can send you my old one to try out.

The part number on my radio is 10359577. tlynch, what is yours? Won't we have a problem swapping radios, because that is the whole problem with these GM radios, they need to be programmed to a specific VIN in order to do anything
