    Converting Tape to CD in a 96 Deville

    I have a factory tape player right now, and I want to put a factory CD player in there. Is it any more difficult then buying the male harness to the CD player and connecting it to my factory one? I know I don't have a security system in my car, because I can take the factory radio out and drive around fine.

    Re: Converting Tape to CD in a 96 Deville

    Couldn't I use any GM cd player that fits in the space? Or what about a non bose CD player from a 97 or 98 Deville?

    Re: Converting Tape to CD in a 96 Deville

    lemme repeat
    ALL CADILLAC CD SLOT RADIOS HAD EXTERNAL AMPS
    ie less you have bose or active audio you sure can power up a cd slot unit, sure you can play the cd fm am and tape but your not gonna hear a dang thing

    and no no other gm player will work they have 24 pin radios cadillac has 32 pin, olds used a 32 pin radio but it too was BOSE and requires the bose or an amplified system to hear the music
