I just bought a 96 Sedan DeVille this afternoon. I would like to upgrade the head unit with a dvd video hu. This is the one I am looking at:

Would this work in my 96? It says it will work in cars with a 4" high opening, and my opening is around 4 3/4"

I did search the forums, but could not find this specific information.

Thank you,
Brett

yuh a dbl din will fit
but you have to make a dash kit, only a single din fit kit exists thus far

So if I pick up the Metra 2004 kit I can dremel/sand it out to fill up the sides right?

I do not have the bose system, just the basic cassette player.

I ended up buying a Panasonic instead because the JVC was not a touch screen.

yup
youll also need to break out some of the plastic at the back of the hole in the dash to make room. youll see what i mean

Cool, I think I'm all set now. I bought the Metra 03 data cable kit, the antenna adapter, the HU, and the Metra single din kit with pocket. I also picked up an overhead flip down lcd monitor that mounts on the roof, so the kiddies can watch movies while in the backseat.

Has anybody else here installed one of these overhead flip down monitors?

nope, no sunroof. My new Caddy is pretty much just a basic model. But thats OK, its in beautiful condition and has that wonderful Cadillac ride.

No bose. Just regular CD and cassette tape. Steering wheels controls ( I would like to keep these working) And Actually I dont care about upgrading the speakers, the HU could enhance the SQ ( I guess) The same as above or like 99 Classillac has, that would would pretty sweet in my ride

pm me on how to pay you. I also need to know how to mod the metra kit. I am not going to install, so i have to be able tell an installer how to mod it (never can be sure) people say they can do stuff but can't.

Thanks in advance

I didn't post pics of mine yet, the link is to another thread here of another members finished job in his 99 DeVille.

As far as similar or not, I really have no idea whatsoever. I don't know what the 2005 STS looks like.

hi all,
i've been searching and clicking through search results for several evenings now, and I need a confirmation on the information that i've gathered. I have a '94 sedan deville, stock stereo still in place. (just cassete and tuner.) Will a 2 DIN unit fit in there? if so, i know i'll have to custom make a trim fit kit....(that'll be no prob...) Can I get a wire harness for this thing? (what i mean is a plug that goes into the factory plug on one end, and loose wires to connect to the head unit on the other) And last, is there enough room in the dash, or will i need to "rearrange" some things under there?

Thanks for the help!
