        Walmart has (well, mine did) a crazy octopus looking antenna adapter that should cover what you need. Its a hack way to do it though.

        The one you should use is by Scosche...

                The one local to me didnt have much of an assortment, instead offering the cheesy octopus affair. It was enough to get me going, but I replaced it with a real one after the weekend.

                    Ah. I guess different walmarts carry things more suited for their location. One walmart by me has an entire aisle devoted to Scosche products while another has just a little 4'x4' board with the wiring basics by the cheap HU's...

                    I am curious about this octopus thing though... Was it every possible proprietary antenna connector to a standard connector type adatper?

                      I cant find it listed on the website, but i found a pic online. Weird *** deal if you ask me, but it served its purpose. Took up a lot of room too! I know it had the end I needed for my car, not 100% on the GM connector

                        And that thing was probably cheaper than the single converter because it is walmart and that is what they do!

                        Interesting to say the least.

                          I guess they figure if your buying your car stereo stuff at Walmart, you deserve this kind of quality

                            IF I saw that thing on the ground I would stomp on it and hope it didn't bite me first!!

                            TO the OP, I'm glad you got you problem solved, but if you post more could you please use descriptive thread titles? Help! Doesn't tell us anything about your problem and makes every one either read the post when they may not be able to contribute OR ignore it even though they may be able to.
                            Its not the cards you're dealt, its how you play the hand!
