If its like the 1999 model (probably is), you have to remove the front bezel, taking off the removable knobs and taking off the volume control nut. In mine all the bulbs are s…older in place, I changed all ten so I wouldn't have to go into it again. Takes some electronics skill but its not to bad.
Answer . you have to remove the dash panel by removing the four screws holding it in place, then removing the four screws holding the stock stereo in place, unclip the wir…es and then re-connect them to your new stereo deck that will need a new cradle for. Secure the new deck in the cradle and then secure the cradle to the factory mount, replce the dash panel secure it and your done. (this entire process took me about 30 mins on my 98 grand am)\n. \n. \n . A word of caution. Make sure the Factory radio does not have a enabled anti theft. If you remove your radio and this is active your whole car could shut down and without the code you are looking a some major dollars for some garage to fix the problem. Run it over to a GM repair shop they won't cahrge you for a quick glance.
Answer . \nThere are four Phillips screws that hold the dash panel on. Two above the instrument cluster and two more in the pocket under the A/C and heater controls. Rem…ove these screws, pop the dash panel off by pulling it out gently. Unplug the harnesses on the lighter, dimmer switch and fog light switch. Remove the three torx screws that hold the radio in place, pull the radio out. Unplug the wire harness and antenna cable from the back of the radio. To put a standard sized DIN sized CD player in, you will need to get a dash installation kit. You will also need to get an antenna adapter since the plug on the antenna cable is smaller than a standard size antenna plug. Its also a good idea to get an adapter harness to make wiring the aftermarket radio to the stock harness much less painful. All of these can be found at most electronics stores or car audio shops. Wire the adapter harness to the aftermarket radio harness. Its color coded, so its pretty simple. I recommend soldering them and covering the solder with heat shrink tubing, but crimp caps will work, too. I don't recommend using electrical tape or wire nuts. Slide the aftermarket radio's mounting cage into the dash installation kit. Bend down the appropriate tabs to hold the cage in place. Insert the aftermarket radio into the mounting cage, making sure it snaps into place. Plug the adapter harness into the factory harness, and into the aftermarket radio. Plug the antenna adapter into the factory antenna cable and into the back of the radio. Now would be a good time to test the radio to make sure everything works. Insert the radio/installation kit into the space where the factory radio was, making sure the wire harness is tucked to the bottom or side of the radio and will not be pinched. Replace the three torx screws that held the factory radio in and plug the lighter, dimmer and headlight switches back in. Pop the dash panel back in place and replace the four screws that hold the panel in.
Answer . What you need to acces is the factory amp/control for the radio which is under the dash right and above the gas pedal. Wire your radio harness and get your antenna… adaptor. Unbolt and remove the factory amp and using the harness you unplugged, plug that into your nes harness and plug your new antenna adaptor to the mini gm antenna. remove the center panel between the cluster hump and glove box. pull the wires up from the bottom left of the hole in the dash. Take the new dash kit and put in the cage from your radio, put the a/c vents in the new dash kit, remove the two clips from the factory trim piece and put them on the back bottom edges of the new dash kit to hold in the bottom. Now plug in the harness and antenna, slide the radio in the kit and place the dash kit in the hole, top in first and push the bottom in. TAH-DAH new radio, and replace the speakers while you are at it you should have 4 4"x6" speakers.

Yes all vehicles have PCV Valves. On your Equinox you will need to remove the engine plastic cover that says Chevrolet 3.4L. You do this by disconnecting the electrical wire f…rom the oil pump located on you left side and unscrew the entire oil fill spout. Then just remove the cover. On the bottom right on the valve cover you will see a metal bracket with a small hose coming out and going up to the intake manifold. Remove the hose and you will find the PCV Valve however I am still puzzled how to remove the metal bracket holding the pcv valve on. I suggest taking it into a service center to have it replaced. PCV valves for equinox's runs between $3-$5 but it will cost some labor to have it done at s service center so shouldn't be more than $30.

Alright, well there are two ways to go about doing this. The first way (and simpler way is to buy ALL of the necessary parts. 1: Your new stereo 2: a radio antenna adapter 3: …An installation kit 4: (the thing i didn't have and couldn't find without ordering) A wire harness. The wire harness cost like 110 to 130 dollars at bestbuy/circuit city, and i can't even begin to imagine the look on my face when my whole stereo installation toppled over 300 dollars just for a new stereo. First you want to disconnect the ground on your battery. then second you want to unscrew the screws that are to the left and right of the climate control. One's near your gas pedal-ish and has a plastic cover on it. The second is by the auxillary cigarette lighter. Once those are out you want to begin to remove the climate control. take a straight edge and begin moving it around the front of the climate control to pop it off. Second you can either remove your gear shifter or you can put the key in, put it into 1 or 2 and then work around it but either way you need to get plate that covers the shifter out of the way. i didn't completely remove it, just muscled it around until i could see the hoses coming out of the back of the climate control (CC). remove them all in whichever order you want. once you get all of those out of the way (make sure you don't rip out the small light that is near the bottom where your storage tray is) you can take out the CC and set it aside. Now there are 3 screws to get rid of your old stereo. 2 on the left and 1 on the right. unscrew em. slowly take out your stereo so you don't rip out any cords. Unplug the stereo. it should have connections in the back. one is the power/speaker wire etc the other is the radio. now you can remove your stereo. Now that that's out of the way this gets easy. You can now take this next part to a work bench and out of the car so your back gets a little relaxation from all the leaning forward... work on this as long as i did because no one else provides a way to do it without having you pay money... solder or crimp the wires from A) your new decks wire kit to B) the wire harness you bought that fits your alero. Not sure if the colors match entirely becuz like i said... i didn't have a wire harness and i went thru hell. Not quite sure how the colors work out so that's yours to figure out. once that's done, you don't need to do much more wire work. now you need to assemble your new stereo. pull it out of its box and follow the instructions provided on how to mount it. once you get it all together, (shouldn't be that hard) you need to adapt your radio wire. Plug the radio cable (its thick and black) from the car to the adapter then let it chill. If your new stereo has an iplug cable like mine, run it to where ever you want. i drill a hole in mine at the back of the storage tray so now its down there by the front cup holder/ little light. Plug all your stuff in where it goes theres only like 3 or 4 things. For me i had my iplug, the rca cables for my subwoofer, the speaker wires and the radio wire. Put it all in, push it back and out of the way hopefully it's not too much of a pain. screw your deck into the mounting kit and back in place. put it all back together like you took it apart. you're done. THE HELL WAY: so i didn't have a wire harness, and i know you all are like, what a retard but heres for us who wanted to save 10 bucks....or 10 days of time to order said part. Do everything up till the wire harness part. What i did was entirely clip off my old wire harness. So yes, i had a bunch of wires hangin loose. The reason your battery is disconnected is becuz if certain wires touch (not sure which ones. all of mine touched at once) a large spark will happen and you will blow 3 or 4 fuses (that i know of) If you did blow it... you have 3 spark plug boxes. ones in the door jam of the driver side. one in the passenger side WHICH YOU WILL NEED becuz that's where the lights to the dash are. and one inside the trunk. i blew a 10 amp 15 and 20 amp and i know i blew one more cuz my chime no longer works when the doors open but the keys are still in. Back to installing it. You have to match up the colors of your system stereo with the colors of your new stereo. that's right so you'll need to do some reading. As for the alero's stock color coded wires Left Front Speaker Positive Wire (+): Tan Left Front Speaker Negative Wire (-): Gray Right Front Speaker Positive Wire (+): Light Green Right Front Speaker Negative Wire (-): Dark Green Car Audio Rear Speakers Size: N/A Car Audio Rear Speakers Location: N/A Left Rear Speaker Positive Wire (+): Brown Left Rear Speaker Negative Wire (-): Yellow Right Rear Speaker Positive Wire (+): Dark Blue Right Rear Speaker Negative Wire (-): Light Blue In the end there were a few wires i didn't use. 5 of them. brown, purple blue i think a green and something else. sorry for not being helpful, go buy the wire harness and you won't have this problem. i just used electrical tape to cover those up and i didn't worry about them. crimp the wires from your new stereo to these colors as defined and then put it all back together as mentioned before. If you get lost or are confused with any part of this, just go ahead and mess around till you figure it out. If I can do it by myself without any help but the color of the radio wires, this should be a cake walk for you.
Your vehicle has a computer system that lets you know when to change the engine oil and filter. This is based on engine revolutions and engine temperature, and not on mileage.… Based on driving conditions, the mileage at which an oil change will be indicated can vary considerably. For the oil life system to work properly, you must reset the system every time the oil is changed. When the system has calculated that oil life has been diminished, it will indicate that an oil change is necessary. A change engine oil light will come on. Change your oil as soon as possible within the next two times you stop for fuel. It is possible that, if you are driving under the best conditions, the oil life system may not indicate that an oil change is necessary for over a year. However, your engine oil and filter must be changed at least once a year and at this time the system must be reset. If your system is not working then change your oil every 5,000 miles if you use conventional or every 8,000 miles if you use synthetic.
