View Full Version : Replacing factory CD player - Searched
I've searched for this, but couldn't find anything. My stock CD player in my 04 Sierra (non-Bose) is toast and I'd like to replace it with another factory unit. I'm just wondering if it's possible to install a radio out of a newer vehicle, like from an NNBS, or would I have to find one from a truck that's the same year as mine. I really appreciate any help I get.

You'll need one from at least the same body style truck. I can't remember if any '03-'07Classic radio will just plug in, or if it will have to be programmed since its not original to your truck. You could also just pick out an aftermarket radio to put in. I personally left my stock CD player in my '05 since it's so simple and easy to operate. Also draws less attention from the thieves. I just put brand new components in the front doors and new coaxials in the back doors. Sounds great for only $100 invested. I just put a new Kenwood head unit and components in my buddies '05 Silverado, too. Sounds great.

Yea, if u want stock ur gonna have to stick with a radio from the same body style. There are websites that you can go to where you type in the code that the new radio gives you and for a small fee of like $5 they give you a code which you type into the new radio to make it work with your truck. Just don't get one with RDS or it'll be wayy more complicated. You can Google programming a factory Chevy/GMC radio to find out exactly how to do it. I don't remember all the details but my dad had to do it with his '03 express work van and it was quite simple.
