    Vincentm...so yours started working when you installed your HU or you did something else? Get a door key copy and put in wallet. I've had to break into my cars toooooo many times (sometimes even breaking windows X_x) for it not to be worth it! Buick used to give out plastic keys with their cars, that was in a plastic card for slipping into a card slot in your wallet, just for that reason, lol.

    For future reference, my valet button problem was a blown radio fuse! I replaced (with no head unit in still) and valet buttons work, thankfully.

    This doesn't include my year, but would it still work?

    Aight, GMOS-06 arrived and head unit's in! Valet buttons working! Cigarette lighter isn't, but it could be dirty, blown fuse, a bunch of small things. I'm not too worried about that. HOWEVER the GMOS-06 cuts music off to chime the low fuel warning...is this stoppable by the volume control on it, or is this just a problem I have to accept? The fuel warning gets on my nerves regardless. Seems like it starts going off at a quarter tank. Has anybody programmed this out or something? Other than that, a brake bypass and dash kit, and the radio'll be done.

    For the cig lighter, pop the hood, take the cover off the fuse panel and wiggle the cable going to the inadvertent power relay. Did so on my 97 Eldorado and voila it works. Overtime those wires need a kick in the pants.

    Appreciate that...I'll do it when it stops raining. You have the same chime-music tradeoff I'm having or your HU not do that?
