This doesn't pertain to a W, but I'm not getting any bites on the Buick forum. My brother has a 97 LeSabre with a non theftlock tape/radio. The deck no longer works and wants to find a stock CD radio. Aside from dealing with unlocking a theftlock unit, should it be drop in replacement? Thanks in advance.

most of the 1.5 din units should pop right in. I just gave my buddy a cd player from my old 98 blazer for his 01 impala

Double check the wiring if it has the same plugs so you don't end up sending power or ground somewhere naughty.

It will be from a same gen LeSabre, but I'll make sure before he would pop it in.

I do believe the 97 LeSabre radio will be double DIN and have a 32-pin connector in the back, but any similar head unit should work just fine. Buick had some nice cassette/CD combo units then.
