Year and Trim: 2001 SSEi
I replaced my head unit today with a "black button" version of what I already have. I'm not sure the technical nuances between either unit, or even how to tell if the one I already had was Bose, but I simply replaced the stock unit with the new one. I turned the car on and heard audio for a few seconds. I understand Theftlock will kick in, which it did, but what I want to understand is if I will need to make any changes to the car once I bring it to a dealer and have them reprogram the head unit for my car (to disable Theftlock)? I just want to make sure this unit will work in my car. I heard the audio, but I don't want to break anything.

As a side note, I'm reading up that it might be Theftlocked but it looks like I can possibly bypass this. However all these instructions reference reading codes on the display. My display doesn't come on though, it stays dark. Is this part of Theftlock?

I am not 100% sure it will work once you get it unlocked because the volume control for the amp is built into the radio and they may nor work exactly the same in a Bose and Monsoon. But there is only one way to find out....

Hate to say this, but upgrading to the newer style head unit isn't worth your time.

What is unsatisfactory to you about your factory system?
