I've been looking all over for a plug so that i don't have to cut the wiring harness to the radio, but all i find is the 2002 GM models and down, the audio shops tell me that they are all the same, do anyone agree, can anyone help me out, Thanks

I have a 2002 GM suv too.  what you are looking for should be the same for '03 and '02.

"03 is COMPLETELY DIFFERENT. Do you have the Bose speakers? Onstar? Steering wheels controls? All make for different adapters. You also have to get the chime box for your door chimes to work. Email me and I can get them to you. premieravp@aol.com

Like premieravp said, the 03 is a totally different beast and is reallya  pain if you have the BOSE system.  At bare minimum you will need a special adapter tjust so that you have a switched wire, it's digitally controlled, and are able to keep you door chime working.  If it's BOSE with On Star then you are really in for some fun as the On Star is integrated in to the radio and just to make matters worse ithe radio is just a controller with the BOSE system and the real radio and everything is in the rear left side of the SUV.  Let's just say it's fun.

Thanks the12volt.com personnel

Hector, your best bet on a brand new vehicle, a major investment at that, with the equipment you have and it's value as well, is to head down to your specialty shop. You will be rewiring the entire vehicle, it is definitely worth having it done for you. Your vehicle can sound amazing providing the quality of the install and proper procedures have been followed, for example, are you prepared to solve noise problems? Not that I am here to doubt your willingness to try, go ahead if you want, we'll be here to help you if you need it. This is a very time consuming and intricate install for the amateur installer and I would hate to see inadvertent damage caused to your investment.

Thank Rob, I have installed plenty of systems and alarms with remote start but my biggest fear is all the gadgets that this Yukon has. Thanks for your advice

I know circuit city usually has the plug that you will need,  and since the only real thing that was added to the standard radio is the bose system from what you say, then you shouldn't have too much of a problem, besides of course having to replace and practically rewire the whole stereo system..   i also recommend replacing all your door speakers as well.  bose speakers sound great, but they just aren't very loud...

I didn' use my harness, I ran new wires to the fuse block. Dude at Sounds Great told me that it would work, liar. My door dont chime anymore or my radio stay on after I turn ignition off. I can live with that.

On the new gm vehicles they decided to run some extra things through the radio...  i guess you have already figued that one out...  go to someplace like Circuit City or Car Toys..  or any other big company that sells and installs car stereo and get the proper parts from them...   obviously you will need the door chime bypass...   the harness to put an aftermarket radio in a vehicle like yours used to just call for re-locating the factory, but thankfully not anymore.
