Are you sure that the first is not D9B? D98 denotes an Accent Stripe... which the GTA did not have.

D9B - Vehicle Speed Sensor
U62 - Dual Front/Rear Coaxial Speakers
UB3 - Instrument Cluster (Specific)
V73 - Vehicle Statement, US/Canada
WW1 - Aero Package (White)
W62 - Aero Package
1SZ - Option Package Discount
11Q - Molding Color (White)
52P - Wheel Color (Gold Metallic)
6ZW - Front LH Spring (Computer Selected)
66I - Interior Trim (Medium Beechwood)
669 - Seat Belt Color (Medium Beechwood)
7ZW - Front RH Spring (Computer Selected)
8NL - Rear LH Spring (Computer Selected)
9NL - Rear RH Spring (Computer Selected)

Hope this helps.

Fairly hard to come by. I see them on ebay from time to time. There are multiple places online that will repair them. You may actually find a repair shop on ebay too. I had mine repaired by a shop I found on ebay.

Re: RPO codes

Or if you want to spend LOTS of money, you can send them off for repair through your local GM dealer!

Online is definitely your best bet.

Re: RPO codes

The unit I had I got online for $50, but then spent almost $300 through GM having it refurbished to like-new condition.

Then I sold it....

Between the purchase price and cost to repair, I figure that I am into mine for about $275-$300. But since I dont have any cassettes to listen to, the cd function is worth it not to listen to endless commercials on the radio.

Re: RPO codes

I do not like to listen to radio either, for the same reason....I hate commercials or people talking and I have to wait and hope that the song that I am in the mood to hear is played.

I have the cassette style stereo in my GTA and what I did is get a ipod and put all of my albums on it. I then purchased one of those connectors that looks like a cassette tape but it has not tape inside. Instead, it is connected with a wire that I plug into my ipod. So now I can use my ipod by connecting it into my stereo through the cassette player.

The thing that I am talking about is sort of like this one:

http://www.bing.com/shopping/Portabl...rce&FORM=ENCA7

And what I think is incredible is I have more than fifty of my albums downloaded onto my ipod and I can play any of this music without having to change a cassette or cd, just simply push button and select the song, artist, album that I want to play.

I also like it that I did not have to change anything about the factory stereo or do any type of wiring installations or altercations to my factory cassette GTA stereo in order for this to work. My GTA stereo is still all factory.

Re: RPO codes

Wes, the only reason I removed my U1A CD unit was because of the steering wheel controls. If I had an '87 or post '89 GTA, there would be a CD player in there in a second.

Yumiko, how is the sound quality? I replaced the factory stereo in my Pilot with a Kenwood that has a mp3 jack in it and listen to my ipod all the time. And I have Sirius too so commercials arent even an issue.

The quality sounds ok to me. I actually tried the wireless connection where you have to put the radio to a special channel and then the piece that is connected to the ipod is like a transmitter. That one was very bad and so much static. But I am very happy with the way I have it now with the blank cassette tape I put into the stereo and then the ipod connects to this blank cassette tape with a wire. It sounds good to me, very clear also. I like the ipod connected to my stereo so much because I have over fifty albums on that little ipod and I can just take it with me wherever I go, I can even listen with earphones if I want to when I am walking or something. And I did not have to do any alterations to the factory cassette stereo or system in my GTA for this to work. So to me, it was the perfect solution, instead of bringing around so many cassette tapes, having to fast forward or rewind. And even with a cd player, you would have to bring around all of your cds, and put them into the stereo each one that you want to listen to.

I used to have a cd changer connected to my aftermarket stereo system in my GTA, and even with a twelve cd capacity cd changer, I still had to put in different cds in the cartridge all the time when I wanted to listen to other music that was not in there already. And the ipod that I have is a little bit smaller then a single cassette tape. Very handy and convenient. And the sound quality is fine to me. The brand that I am using is "Phillips" but I am sure there are other brands that are available and perhaps even better quality then the one I am using.
