Question about 2005 Chevrolet Impala
I'm trying to install an after market radio (Dual XDVD276) in a 2005 Chevy Impala. The factory female plug of the wiring harness has been removed. (Not by me) How do I connect the radio to the car without the female plug to connect to the male connector on the back of the radio?
You will need to splice the wires as it will be hard to find the right connector to attach to the harness wires. Use the wiring diagram for the car (get it at Alldatadiy.com) and the one that came with the Dual unit to figure out which wires connect to each other.

You will need to go buy a wiring harness adapter from your local Walmart (usually cheapest there) or Local Electronics place (ie Best Buy). The wire harness that goes out from the radio goes into the Adapter and the adapter plugs into the car harnesses. Also these Adapters come with the wiring diagrams for your vehicle. They typically run 10 - 15 bucks depending on where you get them. Thanks for using FixYa!

By using an amplifier with "HI INPUT" jack. You would use the signal from the actual car speaker wires. just tap into them and extend it to the amp input signal. I would recommend a SONY amp that's cheap and reliable. You can get one 800-100watts from ebay or walmart for about 100 dollars. Get a amp wiring kit and you are good to go. Contact if you need more help. Thanks for using FIX YA.

There are 2 10mm bolts in the compartment hold of the center console that must be removed. Two similar 10 mm bolts must be removed at the front of the center console, near the driver's and passenger's lower legs. The top of the center console, where the shifter is located, snaps out. With this top piece removed, the cigarette and auxilary outlet can be disconnected. Four more bolts near the shifter bracket need to be removed, and then the console is free. Hope this helps someone. I needed to remove the center console to install a component for a car stereo.

In the wiring diagrams there is a COMPUTER DATA LINES SYSTEM wire. From what I have read the radio won't cause the car not to start. Did you make sure you didn't drain the battery? Is the Theft Deterrent light on? If it is you're going to need a scanner to get the codes. This is what the Theft Deterrent system does with the radio.
I think if the Theft Deterrent light is on you will have to start there if not just diag a no crank condition.
