Hey I got a 2007 Impala with bose I want to install a double din is there anyway I can get away from buying the expensive pac harness its like 100 bucks I just want my radio and factory amp and speakers to work i dont want onstar or chimes to work. I was told I can use a regular metra harness and hook up the amp to power up directly but not sure to to do that.

I've heard that you NEED the PAC. I guess yours are more expensive. For 7 gen Scosche is $100, but like $50 on ebay.

You only need the PAC one to keep the gm/onstar chimes. There's been many many many people that have run a reg harness and lost the chimes.

I don't remember which one works with the bose. I wanna say it was a PAC one also, but not the same as the one that retains the chimes.


Oh and if you're worried about keeping the steering wheel controls then follow the link Troublemaker posted.
