this might work but your going to lose some features on your car. and what about the climate control?

The seat memories go through the radio if you have that. Check your manual and see what other functions are controlled with the radio.

Yeah, on a different car and different generation. :thepan:
Looks like you just wanted a reason to post pictures of a DTS in the STS section?

I think you'll lose the ability to change all of your driver settings such as seat position, MRC, security. All customization is changed through the radio. Remove it and you'd setter be happy with your choices!

Good luck!
