My 05 g6 radio died on me and I want to replace it with a factory radio. What I need to know is what radios will fit in my car? 2005-???? and does any other models have the same radio??

i would think the reason its got a different part number is because its a single disc versus the 6 disk.....what are the part numbers you have?
I haven't got the 6 disc out yet, but the one I bought is #15849574. My concern is that its not a monsoon and won't work. Is there a way to find out because taking everything apart?

If the part number thing is a problem I'll give you a shout.

If you have a Monsoon sound system, then you will want to replace it with a Monsoon headunit. The number of discs it holds shouldn't matter or the graphics it displays for its buttons.

aww damn then, i heard someone put a monsoon in a non-monsoon vehicle and gm did the programming to make it work. I better just go down to the dealer.

Well, I'd go ask the dealer since they probably know more than I do.

EDIT: Just checked with ALLDATA and you will have to get the new radio reprogrammed for your car. Whether that has to be monsoon or not, I don't know.

I would've gone safe with getting a Monsoon headunit, but go ask. Here are the wiring diagrams of both with and without monsoon.

Got the radio in the car, went to the dealer today. Just as I expected they say their not sure if it will work, but not only about the monsoon but about the different style(6 disc to single disc). Plus a $100 bill for something they're not sure will work or not.

On that note I'll be looking for another shop with a Tech II. The radio I have could have come out a monsoon car, the seller just wasn't sure. But as of now it just reads "LOCKED".

That definitely involves reprogramming since the car doesn't recognize the radio so it's locked.

Keep me updated.

Went to another gm service/dealer today and got the radio successfully unlocked. People were a lot more friendly and knew what they were doing. I didn't even tell them I was going from a 6 disc to a single disc. It ran me $86 after tax this time. My invoice reads "unlock and reprogram with tech II". . .. doesn't get more accurate than that. Thanks abyssul for all the input.

I love notes from tech, so useless i find. I wish they would tell you what was done. I guess they do but knowing how they did it would be cool haha

They pretty much just plug in the TechII into the car and change a few settings for a easy $85 dollar price tag. Quickest money ever.
