    So I have been looking all over and cannot find the information I am looking for so I thought I would post a new thread. My cobalt is a 2005 base model 4 door. About a year and a half ago, I put in a new Pioneer head unit. I used the PAC interface to keep the retained accessory power (RAP) so...

    I just attempted to install my new head unit, but the wiring harness that I bought was one wire short. I read that if you don't buy the expensive adapter that this would be a problem but you could wire the red wire from the head unit directly into the fuse box to a key controlled fuse... can...

    I don't know if anyone has figured this out, if they have, mods delete the post, but the 2010 cobalt doesn't have a ignition switch to turn on a head unit and I didn't want to run a line from the head unit to the fuse box. SO I used a multimeter and I fgured out none of the pins on the harness...

    So, I'm looking into buying an aftermarket head unit from a buddy so I decided to run and see what it'd run me for a wiring harness. I drive an '06 cobalt ss/na. They told me that it's gonna be around $100+ for the PAC harness. I do not have onstar, so I'm here to ask if I need that harness for...

    Hi all, I'm new to the Cobalt modding scene, but last year I purchased a 2010 Cobalt LT2 which did not have OnStar or XM Radio installed in the vehicle. Fast forward a year later and I really want to get satellite radio. I've looked around and found some kits such as Pac-Audio.com Product...

    Ok, so there have been a ton of threads recently about car audio, so I figured I'd throw out some basic info all in one thread for people to refer to to consolidate and make life easy... Our cars are double din, means we can take the big touch screen head units or the smaller, more classic...

    This question is short and sweet. Do I NEED to replace my head unit to wire up these subs and amp my buddy is selling? I'm not sure the brands (not that important, the whole set is 50$) but I was told I need to replace my head unit to wire it up. If you don't have to, how difficult will it be...

    Hello everyone. I have an 05 Cobalt with the Pioneer System, no OnStar. I just ordered a Kenwood KDC-X993 from Crutchfield and they told me i needed a $60 integration module or i lose my sub functionality. Is there any way around this? I didn't really want to spend an extra $60. I was planning...

    Hi, I recently crashed my Cobalt and ended up buying a different car. Unfortunately, I can't/don't want to change the head unit in the new car. I'm selling (based on a decent offer) an Alpine CDA-9886 and rear Alpine R-type speakers (I can still use the front ones). This includes all harnesses...
