Question Need HELP PLEASE on CD - AnyOne know How ?

If any of you have seen my thread "https://montecarloforum.com/forum/ge...ndering-29446/" You'll know that if my great aunt get's a new car, I'm most likely going to buy her 1997 Monte Carlo LS (27,000 mi) from her. However, it has only a cassette player(never been used). But, I would like to put in a factory CD player. I can get one at my local salvage for $50.

My question is...what would I have to do to get around the Theftlock so it (the CD player) can work?

You would have to have it programmed by a tech at a GM dealership. You would be much better off by going with an aftermarket deck, even if you mount it out of sight to retain the stealth look.

I do not want an aftermarket deck in it. The car is too perfect and pristine to do that too. I either go original factory CD player, or keep the cassette.

Hi Kyle,
If all else fails, you could consider something like the below adaptor
