    After Market Radio Install on 2016 Cruze Limited

    Hello All

    I have a 2016 Chevrolet Cruze Limited LTZ RS and am thinking of doing a few mods starting with the stereo. I want to add CarPlay by switching the radio for an aftermarket unit. I was told by someone that all of the vehicle’s functions are tied into the radio. Is this true? Any help would be sorely appreciated

    Some of them are and most want to retain them.

    It would help if you post what is in the vehicle to start with. What are the RPO codes? Some of the info you seek is in these two long threads.

    With a LTZ, I doubt if he has a base radio. There's some add-ons that will retain some functions. I think the RP5-GM31 is one.

    I just looked onto Crutchfield, added my vehicle and it said the PAC RP5-GM41 Wiring Interface is supported for my vehicle

    RPO stands for Regular Production Option. Almost all RPO's are three characters. Some common ones here are the Cruze motor designations: LE2, LH7, LUW, LUJ and LUV, for example. Z28, Z71, LS6 and LT1 are some other, well known RPO's.

    For the Cruze, all the RPO's pertaining to each car are listed on a sticker in the trunk, IIRC. [correction: glove box door]

    I couldn't find a list of all the RPO's for a 2016 Cruze, but I found one for 2017: https://www.gmfleetorderguide.com/NA...ehicleID=19784

    Below are the ones I culled from that list which may pertain to your car.

    HTH.

    Unfortunately, almost none of the RPOs you posted Doug apply to the 16 Cruze Limited. Only SiriusXM and the base driver information center have the same codes.

    Sugarbear, if you want me to look up the various radio options your vehicle came with you can send me your VIN by PM. However, when it comes to aftermarket upgrades, they usually are not relevant since you will be adding retention modules.


    @ChevyGuy I sent you a PM a couple days ago about one of the tools I have here.
