    Are Vue and Ion radios backwards compatible to Scars?

    I have a wonky CD player and some of the later model Saturn radios have aux input.

    Curious if I any of the Vue or Ion radios will work in a 2001-2002 S?

    Not sure, the anti theft stuff might get mad. If they even fit.
    It's not my fault, blame the radiation.

    That's about the same price as a junkyard radio that probably doesn't fit

    Tried to get an ion radio to work in my 01, didn’t like the can bus signal for the turn on even with the external ion amp. While keeping a stock looking one might be nice, aftermarket is really the way to go.

    First generation Vue's radios work with S cars, however second generation and up they are the same as the Ion, which won't work. I got a Cobalt one to plug in to my SC2 once, but as stated above, it didn't work at all so that was a bummer.

    I’d almost bet that the radio from an 03-04 ION may work, since it looks nearly identical to the base cd unit used in the third gen S series...

    Too many mods to list in sig, I don’t believe in “stock”...
