1995 SL2
Default Can 1995 SL2 use 1996-2000 head units?

I have a 1995 SL2, and I have the head unit with the equalizer and so on, but the tuner is busted so I receive no radio signal at all. What I want to do is get an OEM head unit such as this with my stock harness or would I have to use a different harness?

You can use a headunit from any 95-99 saturn s-series the one you showed above is from a 00+ and those wont fit since they dont have the rounded edges on the top corners.

Default Re: Can 1995 SL2 use 1996-2000 head units?

My 95 SL1 came with plain old am/fm no frills radio. I bought an am/fm cd player with equalizer off of ebay and it installed just fine. I also bought a new set of speakers all the way around from Saturn. Saturn sells speakers that are made specifically for the EQ radio. They sound much nicer then the regular speakers. I have picts posted of it. I did lose my nifty storage tray though, but its worth it.

I have a for a regular shape DIN head unit holding kit, but what about the wire harness?

I may be doing somthing wrong, if so please correct me. But the what I saw on that link to Ebay did not indicate that they are units for "S" series cars. I saw LS, ION, and VUE listed. The years you gave would be ok but they have to be from a "S" series car if you want it to just "bolt" in and fit in the center console trim with no modification.

I dont care about fitment, I just want to know about the wiring, if its similar to the ones that came in my 1995 SL2. From what it seems, the AM/FM CD headunit is the same in all models.

Ok, well I guess I was a bit confused. I presumed that you were planning to use an OEM unit from another "S" series car. So with that said, first, yes anything from 1995 to 1999 for sure and I can not say for sure about 2000 from another "S" series car will use the same harness and will go right in with no modifications as the dash and consoles were the same for those years. As for units from other series cars such as "L", or IONs, I can not answer about where or not the harness is compatable. Nor can I say whether or not the harnesses are compatable for years prior to 1995.
