Hello all! I need help with a project.
I want a mylink system in my base cruze.
I know that there are other threads on here but none of them are able to show us how to do this without using aftermarket systems designed for the Cruze.
I purchase a dashboard for an LT with Mylink for an LT.

I removed the entire dash harness.

Does anyone have a video of this install or provide instructions for installation for OEM to OEM?

I have all wires and harnesses.


The regular unit has one harness ( the large harness.) The mylink unit has the large harness and a small harness.

Any idea on how to wire?

Thanks all!

Not sure about wiring but I've honestly heard this is impossible/nearly impossible. Pretty sure even if you get it all hooked up you would still have to take it to the dealer to have the bcm programmed to the new radio. Best of luck though and I hope you can figure it out. If you can get it to work please let us know what is involved!

There's a certain thread on here where someone successfully does it, but like Terryk2003 said either the stereo itself or BCM/ECM will need programming by the dealer or by a site that specializes in that sort of thing...and that can add to the cost of parts greatly depending on how much they charge of course....if I find the thread again I'll link it....he explains how to do everything.

This thread is about adding MyLink to the older Cruzes that didn't have it as an option...so by all assumptions I would think it's the same for you to add it to your Cruze that didn't come with it.

Just out of curiosity, what features do you like from the MyLink besides Bluetooth, Pandora, and having a LCD display at eye level vs where aftermarket puts it lower down the center stack?

GTPrix is a member here, but also google GTPrix and it will pull him up as White Automotive services. MVI can be reached at gm-navigation.com/. MVI's number is 866-428-3585 - ask for Anthony.‎
Did you contact these members in that thread you posted in about how successful the others were at this conversion?

Quick search and username meaning, are you in a 2014 Cruze LS with or w/o infotainment buttons on your wheel?

Hi guys I'm new to the forum. I purchased a non-navigation unit off of ebay with the tough screen and the keypad/ control. I just really wanted Mylink. What do i need to install this?
Is this the unit you have now or something completely different? Also is this a radio out a 2014 Cruze? 2014 features are different than 13 and 15/16.

Hello all,

I am new to the forum. I have installed heated leather seats into my base model Cruze. The driver seat is a power seat and it works with the base model plug. I also purchased the heated seats AC controls and was wondering if it is anyway possible to get the heat to work on the seats.

Any help on this would greatly appreciated.


Thank you.
Not possible at the moment. It's not a plug in and work situation like how your seat did. You would have to install a rocker switch or something else as the cars BCM won't allow you to control it like factory.

Hi Anthony. I believe on that thread he his installing a pioneer aftermarket system designed for Cruze. I basically took an OEM unit and ther harnesses out of a junk yard car. My current OEM radio has one plug in the back ( the big wiring harness) the junk yard Mylink system has two wiring harnesses and trying to find out how to connect that second smaller harness.

Hello I wanted the car to look as factory as possible . A nice after market unit will increase the chances of someone breaking into my car. Still that may be the only option.

Yes this is a ls with no Mylink.


This is a different Mylink . The first one did not come harnesses this one does in fact I have the entire dash harness.
