    A big part of it is how you search for it. Simply searching "Onstar" and "Onstar Module" didn't bring up his item. Searching "Onstar Bluetooth" did though. There are a few similar ones on there. I paid $195 though, so it wasn't a steal, just a good find.

    I still have mine for sale if anyone would like it.

    Like I posted before - $226 CDN (that is what I paid for it) plus shipping. It is (P/N:20787642) and comes with the bluetooth antenna.

    I will ship it any where any way.

    I will be returning it middle of next week (March 10, 2010) to the junk yard where I bought it.

    Just let me know if you want it, how you want it, and how you will pay for it.

    Thanks
    Roger

    Rog, I sent you a private message about it last week. I would have happily bought it. Matt, there you go.

    Sorry Scout. I tried to reply on my blackberry browser, but the browser is lousey at best.

    I guess it didn't work. Your was cheaper than I would like to sell for since I would lose money at that price. Anyway....

    Matt it is yours if we can work it out. I PM'd you and emailed you directly - hopefully it/they worked.

    Sorry for these last few posts.

    Roger

    For those interested, I found this on eBay. I just ordered mine from Roger and am awaiting customs... Sorry there seems to be no "buy-it-now"

    Pardon my french, but F those guys. I saw they were parting out a CTS-V and emailed asking about the box. They said they didn't have any such thing.

    Good to know. Glad I bought elsewhere then, still I thought I'd pass it on.

    Box installed with no issues. That silly little bolt that holds it in didn't give me any issues. Now I need to have the OnStar setup done. I did notice that it won't connect to OnStar now. Did you guys call on the phone?

    My bluetooth is flawless. Wonderful mod.

    Good to hear everything went well! You have to do two more things to have it working perfectly: 1-Go to your Caddy dealer and have them do an initial setup on the Onstar module (programs the box with your vin and vehicle options), 2-Call Onstar and have them associate the new module to your vehicle in their database (tells them the phone number is your vehicle instead of the donor vehicle).

    You don't necessarily need to set up an account with Onstar but they need to know your module is for your car in case of emergency.

    just so I am understanding correctly; if you have no interest in onstar, then all you need to do is swap in the new box, and you have bluetooth working with no other setup needed?

    Uh Oh... that's not good. I saw your message and it sounds like you have one of the modules affected by the 8.0 recall.

    The reason why the 8.0 module was recalled, was that there were certain batches of the 8.0 modules that wouldn't connect to OnStar (It would LOOK like they are attempting to connect to Onstar.... but all you would get is an endless beeping and a connection would never be made).

    While yes that is technically true, I do not recommend it. While you may not want the OnStar, it could cause problems for whoever may purchase the car after you if they want OnStar..... either that or just make sure you hold on to the old module and swap it back in whenever you decide to sell the car.
