Is there any way to "key" a new stereo for a 2006 pontiac G6 without taking it to the dealer? will changing the cables fix this issue or will I still have to take it to GM to get it keyed so it will work?

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

CD changer will not accept cd's-- keeps saying error.  If I replace the unit with ANY other
unit, I have been told it will need to be "keyed" at a dealership in order to work.  Is there
any way to get around this issue?

Unfortunately the stereo is tied into the security system so it's off to the dealer.

I've been told that you can buy a jumper wiring harness, push the factory radio back behind the dash and out of view, then plug in the new radio. HTH. -Jim

I called a car stereo place about getting a different stereo, and he told me that the stereo would work because they give you the cables/wires to connect -- I am skeptical despite the fact that he ASSURED me that I would not have a problem. Just need to know before I actually spend big money on a new stereo and then have to take it to dealer for additional cost.

I'd talk to them in person. Get some kind of assurance that if the stereo system you want won't work with your car that you can return it. Or maybe they can install it for you. That way if it doesn't work it's on them. HTH. -Jim
