    Install CD player in 99 DeVille

    Hello all, for Christmas this year I would like to have a CD player installed in my wife's 99 Cadillac DeVille. I would like to know what other owners have done to put this capability in their car. She certainly doesn't want me to mess up her pretty dash, so I don't see how one could be installed there. I'm planning to stop by the local car stereo shop for their input, but I thought I would ask here as well. I was thinking of a 10 disc player in the trunk with a simple button somewhere on the dash.

    Perhaps instead, a nice mp3 player and a line in interface to keep the look stock, no discs to fool with and your music collection can leave the car with you?

    It can be a pain in the backside because your theft system is integrated into the radio. It can cause little gremlins to cause headaches. Even more so if you have the Bose system. The easiest way I heard was to keep your stock unit connected in your trunk.

    They are pre wired in trunk for factory cd changer... do a search for part numbers on the forums. Pick one up off ebay or salvage yard.
    I have 1 in my 97 and works just fine. its plug and play BTW.

    Re: Install CD player in 99 DeVille

    I've been looking through Google and eBay, and find many different p/n that suggest they will be acceptable. Here is one example, is it okay?

    that unit was designed for the 2000 and 2001 Deville -
    mounted in the glove box -

    or 1998 through 2001 Seville -
    mounted in the console -
    ----------------
    the pre 2000 Deville used a 12 disc changer - mounted in the trunk -

    as did the 2002 and older Eldo -

    Some details on this would help. I found a guy on ebay that wants $115 to intall a line in jack on my radio.

    There are detailed instructions on forums to do just that. Search for aux input post by N*caddy.

    Re: Install CD player in 99 DeVille

    Finally had a chance to pull back the passenger side cover in the trunk and found these two plugs that I believe are for the factory CD player. However, my wife now expresses the opinion that she may prefer to simply purchase a cassete tape connector for her iPhone. Has anyone taken that approach and had success?

    Either the cassette way or an FM modulator for the iphone will do what she wants. I think you can also get something that works off of those CD changer wires in the trunk.
    If I knew there was such a demand for those changes I would have grabbed a couple when I've seen them. My deville is a year or two off to be pre-wired for it.

    Cassette works perfect and is easy. Pick one up for $5. You will probably have some tape hiss at low volumes
