#1 of 37 '04 Pontiac Grand Am and Pioneer CD Decks
Sep 07, 2006 (3:01 pm)
I wanted to know if anyone knows which pioneer cd decks are compatible with an '04 Grand Am. BestBuy's website says none in it's stores will fit yet Circuit City has one that is suppose to. It's a Pioneer AVH-P5700DVD. BestBuy has it but says it's not compatible. I am just browsing right now though and plan on changing it probably in a few months to a year. I like the AVH-P6800DVD model, but I am not sure if that will work for my car. If anyone can help me out please do. I really appreciate any help I can get to make a decision on what to buy. Thank you.

Visit the Crutchfield website at www.crutchfield.com and read their recommendations for this car. There's an issue with loosing some chime functions if the factory radio is removed. If I'm not mistaken a 1.5 DIN size receiver fits best, but does need a trim plate. I'm assuming you don't have the factory Monsoon system.
#4 of 37 Idle Problem

I ran into a puddle of water and it flooded the car out. Now my car idles all the time and when it is in gear I don't have to push the gas, it automatically accellarates. Anyone have any clue of the problem?
#5 of 37 Problems with the stock radio in my 99 Grand AM Se.
Jul 24, 2007 (2:36 pm)
Recently I had a pressure hose replaced,which the battery needed to be disconnected. Because of the power loss the theft lock has locked the radio.I know how to reset it,but the display screen hasn't worked properly since the day I bought the car. Which means it only shows some of the time half of the numbers. What I want to know is there a diagram for this type of radio? I want to find out if the people at the dealership who told me I need to replace the radio itself, as the guy at the car radio place told me it's just a bulb and wants $110.00 to replace it. Are pulling my chain.

I don't think that changing a bulb will fix your problem, since it sounds like your LCD display has gone out. The dealer won't try to repair the unit, only replace it. Check with the sound place to see if they are really talking about a bulb, or if they are quoting a price to replace the LCD display. Also, these factory units are on Ebay all the time for real cheap, but you have to make sure they have the security code included. I used to have one that came out of my 99, but I think I threw it away.
#7 of 37 '00 Grand AM HD decks?
Oct 10, 2007 (8:06 pm)
I'm interested in upgrading the factory deck with an HD one. I am not interested in getting a deck that I have to buy a separate HD tuner for. As such, it seems the JVC KD-HDR1 is the only one that matches the criteria. The only problem is that I can't find anywhere if this will fit the '00 Grand AM.
Is there anywhere I can find out if this will fit the car? Any info is appreciated. Thanks all.

That's a 1 DIN receiver, which according to Crutchfield will fit but will protrude from the dash 1" when installed. Also, since the factory cutout is about 1.5 DIN a filler panel is required, which they provide for free. Not the best solution, but that's what is takes I guess. Go over to crutchfield.com and you can get all the info.

The Aftermarket JVC HDRadio will fit the 1.5 DIN Pontiac hole. You can buy the vehicle adapter harness to go from GM connector to the new radio from either Circuit City or other audio shop. Also Radio Shack has antenna adapter as well since GM old antenna connector is different from the JATSO antenna connector most Aftermarker radios use.
