:dontknow:
:dontknow: :withstupid: I some how double posted here at the exact same time. oh so sorry, I hope my questions can still be answerd
:btruestory:
I found this on ebay, no mention of Bose Heritage.

Will this work as Bose HU?

Also this stereo claims to be unlocked, well here look at the ebay page,

http://www.ebay.com/itm/UNLOCKED-2000-2003-Pontiac-Bonneville-AM-FM-CD-CASSETTE-Radio-TAPE-COMBO-Stereo-/182094463674?hash=item2a65ad02ba:g:wg4AAOxyYSJSAcS~


I found it on ebay.
I am wanting to go back to OEM Bose,
I guess my primary questions are
1. is this BOSE?
2. will these work on my car?
3. are these prices good?
4. What is Locked/Unlocked-Need for factory unlock or syncing?

I am wanting to go back to OEM Bose,
I will buy the parts and work my way back to revive this system as long as the HU is good, which remanufactured should be a good indicator

What I know about my car,
I have 8 Bose speakers installed in all the right places
Wires in dash to OEM Bose HU were cut by Nephew, and car is in shop (as of this writing), trouble shooting many many problems.
Steering wheel controller does not work with Kenwood HU
Is this what the Bose HU looks like.?
I also found this one that has a :dontknow: RCA Jack for alternate input.

I think the 2000+ radios can detect if there's a bose amp installed or not, someone else please confirm this.
As long as the wiring is correct, the radio should be plug-n'-pray. Why's that? These radios require a Class II data bus connection which is provided by your car's body control module. On that data bus, the VIN is sent to the radio. If the VIN stored in the radio doesn't match the VIN being sent from your car, the radio will go into Theftlock mode and you will need to take it to a dealer(or someone with a Tech II) to get it unlocked. If the radio is already unlocked then you don't have to worry about that.

The radio with the aux jack is a ripoff. You can pick up a car radio for cheap at the local junkyard.
