Phew! That helps alot! I will have to find someone to do this for me. I might be able to do simple but this is beyond me. It might also explain why sometimes my passenger floorboard is moist. Thanks!

Thank you for that info, do you know if this is the same area where the connection will be on a 2000? I just noticed the seatbelt buzzer not working and payed it no mind then the radio started fading in and out, i started to buy a new amp that is how i ended up on this site. thanks for sharing this info.

Hey guy! I landed on the site trying to find out how to fix my 2007 impala ss radio that keeps goin in and out. I've read along throughout your thread and your problems are the very same as mine so it seems to be an ongoing problem with these vehicles even through a generation change. I do have an aftermarket radio in which i had to install an additional harness to keep all of my factory settings (onstar, chimes, etc...). At one point i though it may have been the harness, which I've replaced one time, but starting to think it is the amplifier or switch that has been constantly mentioned. If ANYONE has any additional guidance on this problem, PLEASE let me know! Eventhough I have 2007 it may actually be the same problem and switch could be in nearly the same location but i AM UNSURE!!!!!! Thanks in advanced!

This is how my problems with my Chevy Impala started and it was in the summer ,so the cold had nothing to do with it, First it started with radio not working sometimes,then radio would stay on when door open and have to manually turn it off,rear defroster quit working,chiming when you take key out,then my battery started going dead,A 2008 car,a new car that I am paying 450 dollars a month on and of course that started when all I have left is a power train warranty! I bought it because my used car was breaking down,bought a new battery ,still went dead,The dealership was no help,I am not letting them look at it since they will charge me who knows what even if its something minor! I have a brother who is a mechanic ,hope he can find out the problem,I am furious,Have always been a Chevy lover but the love is slowly fading!
#1554 of 1571 2006 9C3 Impala Radio issue HELP PLEASE
Jan 10, 2011 (6:45 pm)
Hello - I have a 2006 Impala 9C3 (unmarked police car) that has an issue that's driving me insane. I am trying to listen to my Sirius Radio via the AUX jack - it has been working fine for a year, now all of a sudden the radio is switching from AUX to FM for no reason (no one is touching the band selector switch). When I hit AUX it tells me NO DISC (it's also the CD) it will not stay in AUX mode. The FM wireless transmitter is nothing but static, so this AUX mode was perfect.
Any ideas? Thanks in advance.

Make sure you hook up the blue wire coming off of your harness to the blue/white wire on your aftermarket radio. That should fix the problem.
