View Full Version : Hard to swap one fact. '93 FW stereo for another?

04-07-05, 05:22 PM
My '93 Fleetwood, of course, was only ordered with the standard cassette player head unit, but even it doesn't work. I want to swap it out for another stock cassette/CD version, but am wondering how difficult it is or what is entailed in getting into the dash of a '93 and replacing one for another.

It's stock for stock, so I can't imagine it would be too difficult. Any comments?

Sorry man, I have been really busy...
Ok, replacing the stereo for an equal one is practically plug and play. Visit this site:

However, switching to a different unit is a different story, in most cases is not possible. I don't know if it's your model's situation.

Wow, thanks! Even more than I expected to get--very much appreciated!

Since I want to stick with the same head unit from the same car and same year, just one that works and has a CD slot, it should be as simple as can be--unplug and plug back in, just like I suspected.

:coolgleam Now, just gotta get the new HU and have it replaced sometime this May/June (away at college until then) and finally be able to listen to CD's in the car--what a novel idea :rolleyes:

Any idea what this one is? Says it came out of a 1994 Fleetwood Brougham (same thing as my '93) but it's the "Active Audio" version. Looks almost identical and is clearly the same size, but I wonder if it really is and if it would really work, plug and play:
