    I'm on vacation still in the snowy northeast but it would seem that the module isn't the problem. This might be beyond your troubleshooting abilities, it's definitely past mine.

    If I get a new radio will any 2003 cts radio work or do part numbers have to match exactly?

    Re: Radio not working

    part numbers often change/supercede so the exact number might not match but you will need the same radio

    i can check part numbers to see if the replacement matches your part number if it's not an exact match

    a dealer will need to program the radio to your car and will need some extra info to ensure that the radio isn't stolen (usually a proof of purchase or something like that... they will let you know what their policy is)

    Re: Radio not working

    I'm dealing with the same issue with my CTS. I ended up taking it to the dealer after I replaced the antenna module and checked all of the fuses, connections etc. The dealer had it for a few days and the only thing they could come up with was a bad radio. My remotes did not work after I replaced the antenna module and from what I have read it does need to be programmed to vehicle.
