Default After Market Deck

I bought a new Sony stereo for my 2006 LTZ and I was recently told that I need to buy some type of bypass for the new stereo...(something to do with the fact I have on-star). I have the basic double din installation kit but I was told I'd need more than that to install.

For people that have installed stereos in this specific generation, what did you all need to install a deck?

You will need a interface module also to properly install your headunit. You will also need a separate module to retain factory steering wheel controls if you desire. Also going to depend on if you have a factory installed amp or not which kit will work correctly.

With either amp or no amp you will need a Metra AX-ADGM01
Without Factory Amp you will also need AX-ADBOX02
With Factory Amp you will need AX-ADBOX01
You will also need an Antenna Adapter I believe for your car should be 40-CR10.
If you want to retain factory steering wheel controls ASWC-1

Don't try to install with out these as it isn't like the old days some of these are data wires tied into the CAN bus of the car and can cause you major issues.

These are all Metra/AXXESS part numbers so that if you need them right away you can get them at your local BestBuy or most car audio shops. I pulled the parts directly from Metra's website you can also call Crutchfield to double check them if you like.

Where is the factory amp usually located? I'm not sure if I have it or not...

The factory amp should be in the trunk, under the rear speaker deck.

You will also need those if you want to keep the power accessory retention.
