My radio display is blank, but the radio/CD works fine. Without that display, I can't reset my FOB preferences. Can I replace with one from the salvage yard, and if so, how complicated is that? Looking for advice, and perhaps links to resources for DIY. Thanks.

You should be able to replace with a used one with no problem, but I reckon you will more than likely have to get it programmed with a Tech2.

Correct. A donor from a salvage yard will suffice but it will require a Tech II to get the VIN matched up to disable the TheftLock, any GM dealer should be able to do this once the radio is installed. They might require you to show proof of purchase before doing so. Make sure and get one from a 2008+ so you have the ability to fix the clock/date with the recent software update developed.

Personally, I would get exactly the same MY as you own because there are slight differences. The 08 did not have the speed limit notice and 09 did. Just an example of the differences. Good Luck
