    Question Which Bluetooth VCIM do I need?

    Hi all,
    I'm trying to swap the Onstar VCIM in my 2006 DTS Performance for one that has bluetooth. I've found several different Bluetooth OnStar Control Module VCIMs on ebay, such as Part Numbers: 20787107, 20827036, 20833261, and 20756237. I really don't know which to buy, if any. If anyone knows which would work in my vehicle, please advise. Thanks in advance.

    Do you know where the module is located in your car?
    There are a few boxes in the trunk of my 06 DTS and I have not been able to determine if any of them are for the On Star. Does it make a difference if the radio has navigation?

    Unfortunately, I do not know where it is, as I have yet to search for it. I wanted to be sure that one of the VCIMs would work for me, before I began to locate and/or remove parts.
    I want to retain my onstar capability and I don't want to add an aftermarket setup.

    Sorry, I'm in the same boat. I have a 2007 DTS with On Star, 6 disk CD, XM, MP3 and wheel audio controls. Sure hope someone can help. Good luck.

    Your onstar module is located in trunk, behind center trim cover. You can pull cover down or take out. Its only a few plastic clips. Once you do this you can see the onstar module mounted on a support . It has two nuts holding it on.

    You are making this harder than what it is. I hate you bought one you can't use. Here is a picture of the bluetooth logal. This is found on everything bluetooth somewhere. cell phone earpices .... On our DTS VCIM that came with the car, on the right side of the CVIM is where the two sqaure plugs goe, a black plug and a white. One the left side there are there is two round connections that is close to the same size, one blue and the other burgany. Now, the you will need for bluetooth one will look the same as your old one,except on the left it will have three round connection connection the same size. the extra cconnection on left is for antenna. You will also have the word bluetooth or the loga or both. Now on some GM CVIM the three conections on the left are three different sizes. You need the one with all three is the small round connection that look the same. I have tested several out of few different gm cars that, had the same three connection on the left sde and they all work. I last one was out of a buick Lacerne that had the same part # as a 09 DTS. That was the first one that I did not get the red light in onstar mirror.

    Macklobell I have been trying to send you what you ask for , but you have to much mail and you must delete some, so i can send it to you. I think you can only have 10 private emails stored.

    Can you also send the part number to me? I'm taking delivery on an 08 Lux III today or tomorrow and also want to replace the Onstar module to one that I can use blutooth on. Mine has the nav/dvd; does that make a difference?

    Thanks in advance,

    Stu

    Phili1,
    You seem to be in the know. I'm also looking for a VCIM module and don't know where or what to buy. I have a 2007 DTS with On Star, 6 disk CD, XM, MP3 and wheel audio controls.

    Thanks
    Larry

    I think we're on our own to search junk yards.
