Question about 2005 Chevrolet Silverado
You will need to purchase a separate module that will allow the factory options that originally are routed through the radio to still work. Believe it or not, many GM vehicles will not start with the factory radio removed unless the separate emulator installed.

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!

SOURCE: trying to figure out if
yes, the special harness is to convert the connection from your truck to fit the connection on the radio. the other option is to cut the harness off the truck a manualy connect all the wires. but trust me from experance. its worth the 20-25 dollars for the harness to save about an hour on the time to install it plus the hassle. not to mention is more of a profesinoal job and alot easier. you can get this part at any circuit city or best buy in the radio installation dept.

Go to this site...very helpful. You have to run your own power wire to power the aftermarket radio. I just finished an install 20 minutes ago.
