I have a 98 chevy malibu w a radio that has the words theftlock on it.The radio works but I'd like to install a new stereo.Can I just unhook the battery and do the removal/onstallation or will something need to be done first regarding the theftlock?

It's only for the factory radio itself........you can install any stereo you want to.....no problem!

I got my pioneer from crutchfield yesterday & put it in,but my fm reception is poor.I didn't do anything w the blue wires because one said sytem remote & the other end of the harness said "power antenna".I think the problem may lie with the ground wire though
