I've been looking for a new radio for my car because I want a aux jack and a different interface, but I like the factory radios for some reason. I have a 06 G6 looking for a 09 model head unit. So I did my research found one on eBay for about 70 bucks but before I bought it I wanted to see if the dealership would actually program it for me. They ended up saying no giving me what sounded like a bs excuse. Has anyone else ran into this problem or is it just me? If so is there anywhere else I could get it programmed.

2009.5 and 2010 G6s have a head unit with out the DIC (Driver info center) beause its built into the speedo. I have an 09 with the dic in the stereo like yours. You can buy a headunit like mine. It has an AUX right in the front. But these OEM radios only last so long.

I actually went in again today and they said they could do it, but as long as i install it myself. But the downfall is if it doesn't work that's your money down the drain.

Thanks! But yea you can't put the newest OEM stereo in. But there are other G6 stereos that will work for your year that have an aux and CD changer and all that stuff

*Update* instead of buying a 09 model I got a 08 Saturn vue one. Only because the led is red. And picked up a wiring harness for it. I also went back to the dealer and they told me, as long as they don't have to install it and the wires are connected they could program it. The hu isn't installed yet but ill upload pics and keep the updates coming

Good luck. That's the one they were talking about above. I don't know if anyone has successfully gotten one to work yet.

i really liked my oem stereo when it worked, then the 6 CD changer kept breaking on me and finally got an ipod connector and used it for a few more years until recently i upgraded my radio all together and so far pretty happy.
