    did he swap in a bose head unit? what does the part number on the sticker say?
    bose head units have NO amplifiers, so it will sound very quiet

    regardless, the easiest solution is to just simply swap head units back to the original.... these are modular head units, which means you can take out the CD unit portion and swap it over to your original head unit... swapping the entire head unit is not necessary and in some cases, not compatible because of model year or option differences

    He did indeed swap the unit from another car.. he traded it to the other guy cause he was selling it so that unit is gone.. guess I will have to find him a compatible one to replace the 6cd changer lol... thx for reply.. sorry I took so long to answer back.. appreciate the help
