I used the wiring harness adaptor to install mine so I didn't have to deal with different wires out side of hokking up the adapotr then plug and play. Does your new radio have a power antenna option? If not you will have to wire the it to a keyed power source if it does then you can isolate the power source and it should work when you turn the radio on but not when you have the cd palyer going. (at least that is how mine is set up) Finding the wire for the power antenna shouldn't be too hard. Good luck.

You have to get an antenna adapter. GM uses a small antenna end. Aftermarket stereos use the large ends. It is usually 12" long with the GM female on one end and the large male end at the other end. Circuit City's to Walmarts carry them.

That year has a control head that is seperate from the receiver itself. Some where there is another box under the dash that has an antenna coax going into it. Hast to be an antenna coax somewhere.
