the factory reloc is just to keep your RD settings so you can reset the dummy lights thru yuour radio. There are other ways of resetting the lights w/o the radio, but the radio is the easiest.

You will nee a special harness if you want to keep onstar. Otherwise a standeard harness should do the trick. Check out crutchfield.com they're pretty good on prices for most things.
