I have a 2006 G6 Coupe and a double din Pioneer and I have some questions.

Number one, if you have a double din headunit, how can you still keep the DIC? What do you need to buy? I've seen people say to buy the Metra 99-3303, but that's for a single din, so I guess that's what I don't understand. And I've seen others say that you also need another part for it.

Number two, what happens if you do away with the DIC completely? Does that mean if you open your door or the gas light comes on, your car won't chime?

Number three, is there a way to mount DIC somewhere in your car where it is visible? (i.e. To see "Miles to go, Trip, Oil Life")

Anyone who has any solutions, if you could reply with the list of parts needed, it'd be greatly appreciated. THANKS!! =)

1) you need the metra 99-3303. Basically you extend the wires and put it where you feel neccessary (for most of us, that is in the glovebox). That is the only way to retain the DIC. Then you just get your dash kit for the deck and mount it where the radio would go.

2) Dont know, never tried it.

3) I've heard of people mounting it on the center console but i've never actually seen pictures of it. I guess if you wanted to you could make a fibreglass pod for onto of the dash to mount it. and them just run the wires to the windows down the side of the dash and up behind the deck.

Hope this helps.

Thanks so much! I'm having it professionally installed at a local audio shop. So, with the Metra 99-3303, they would just trim it to show only the DIC part of it?

If that's what you wanted I'm sure they would. Though unless you tell them to make something to hold it or whatever you want, I'm sure they'll just stick it in the glovebox as that's the easiest and quickest thing to do

If I recall it was color matching wires and I used the Pac module/DIC. I believe I had to use the power amp wire with the red wire for my android head unit because it would lose sound on everything except the radio.

I'm having the same issue. I know this is old. But did you ever figure it out? If you did can you tell me what you did to fix it? Thanks
