1995 – 2006 Chevy / GMC Stereo Install

1995 – 2006 Chevy / GMC Stereo Install

Watch a full tutorial as a 2004 GMC Sierra / Chevy Silverado will have a brand new Pioneer MVH-210EX Double Din Touch Screen Radio installed. This install applies to both the Bose and non-Bose vehicles. We will also be retaining the factory steering wheel controls as well!

This video applies to GMC / Chevrolet (Chevy) Sierra / Silverado / Suburban / Yukon / Tahoe / Avalanche models for years 1995, 1996, 1997, 1998, 1999, 2000, 2001, 2002, 2993, 2004, 2005 and 2006. This video also includes dash trim and stereo removal, wiring, installation, and testing.

NOTE: years 1995 – 2002 only fit single din radio replacements. Years 2002 – 2006 will fit single and double din replacements. If you want to add a double din radio in years 1999 – 2002, you will need the Dash Bezel Adapter: Metra DP-3002B Double DIN Dash Kit.

Well the rest of the vehicle evidently went through a dust storm but the radio looks great.

What did that crux adapter cost you?

Chalkyeye says:

Soooo would everything be the same in my 01 suburban?

Marvelous0622 says:

Wow clean work man. So satisfying watching someone install a radio so clean. Drives me nuts when an install is done half assed

Hunnid Round says:

Where can I possibly find the screws???

Hawks55 says:

I have a 2004 GMC Yukon Denali xxl with factory Bose system . Has two harnesses and a green connector . I’m getting no sound to my new Sony double din and only powers up when yellow and red wires are all connected . Can’t shut off . What am I missing? Other harness are three green wires , a black one , and a pink / black stripe wire and orange black stripe wire . Please advise

Ivan Ortega says:

I followed the steps, i have sound through the radio, but no sound from blue or usb. Any idea where I can find the issue?

Trent Hopper says:

Did the steering wheel adapter come with the CRUX SWRGM-48

Joseph Arnold says:

With an 02 Chevy with a 1.5 din how would I go about installing a double din and having it look clean. Right now I wired up a double din unit and just trimmed my bezel but it does not look clean also had to use 2 pieces of wood one on each side to fill the gap

Obstrends says:

Hi, great video, I mirrored everything g you’ve done except when I plug everything in I don’t have much sound coming out, it does work but very low volume. I’ve checked my connections and settings on the radio and can’t figure it out, any help would be greatly appreciated

Trent Hopper says:

Do not get a Walmart radio. I learned the hard way, it sucks very bad buzzing sounds

missiletm says:

Good video and explination but, Why not clean everything up before reassembly? You spent all that time wrapping the harness for a “professional look” and then reinstalled the dirty bezel over the dirty components. That just doesn’t seem very professional IMO. Also, how long before that usb adapter comes loose when the hot glue softens up on a summer day when the windows are rolled up?

Nate B says:

Does the Crux adapter work with the bose system including the factory rear DVD player?

david branch says:

will this also do a back up camera

Kaleb D says:

My 2005 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 has two harnesses, one like the one in yours, and a smaller black one beside of it. Where can i find an aftermarket adapter.The truck does not have on star, steering wheel controls, or the Bose sound system. Any help would be appreciated.

Cameron says:

Thanks I’m no longer intimidated

Adam Schliermann says:

I have a 2003 gmc sierra that has a bose system , I did every you did but for some reason my head deck won't get power. The radio interface gets power though, when plugged in it chimes. But I do need the remote turn on wires connected together and there is 2 of them.

Daniel True says:

Does the Mute/OnStar button on the steering wheel operate the bluetooth mic after the conversion, or just still work as a mute?
