: CD Changer for 2003 Deville

I have a 2003 Deville base....with a base radio.

The CD player in the radio bit the dust, I would rather not go through the pain to get another from ebay, get to the dealer to deal with the theftlock, etc...

Anyways, I want to just install the CD changer option. The cable is in back of the glovebox already, but I am having trouble actually finding the CD changer.
It looks like there is a cutoff in compatibility in 2002, so I guess I need to get one specifically for 2003-2005 model years?

Can anyone point me to an aftermarket one that's compatible, or if I should just keep scouring ebay.....

Keep watching eBay for a 2002-2004 CD changer. I bought one last week for $24.95. They come up frequently. The models were 98-01 and 02-04.

So a changer from an 01 will not work in an 02 ? Everything I see on eBay says 2000 - 2002

Ah yes...the joys of marketing. Never trust the sellers claims of compatibility on eBay as many have no idea what works with what. If you ever need to know for sure, I would either check in here or with a dealer. The 98-01 changers will not work on the 02-04 cars and vice-versa because GM changed the way the different units communicate with each other over the serial data bus in the cars.
