so i learned today that when you install a aftermarket head unit you need to not be cheep and buy the 115 dollar wire harness. its connected with the airbags and all bunch of crap. if you buy the cheep walmart 10 dollar one, you will short circuit a million things in your coablt. just from my experience. thats what i found out.

you can be cheap. you dont need a wiring harness, just snip the wires on the factory harness. thats what ive done in the past

yeah and i love your quote under your signature haha
why thank you lol. its cause my old car was a 2000 civic and it was pretty quick(I could beat v6 stangs all day and my top speed I'd hit was 227 km/h) but by the time i got my cobalt, it needed a tune up so bad i couldn't beat his 117hp honda fit:notrust:...

Hmm I guess it's good that my dad got pushy about buying the recommended one then. Now if it would just freakin get here already so I can use my iPod again...

When i was installing ym headunit, i went to my local car audio place and said i need a wire harness for a 06 cobalt lt.

The guy went in the back came out with a package that said 04-05 ion, told me it would work and charged me 20$.
Never had a problem with it.

ya i cant see paying that much for any harness. ive done a couple cars where i felt like being lazy and just got em to buy the harness and they were under $20 from a stereo store and worked perfect
