Factory Options: OnStar and CD Changer Empty
PostSubject: Factory Options: OnStar and CD Changer   Factory Options: OnStar and CD Changer EmptyTue Apr 03, 2007 1:47 am

Two of the rarely ordered factory options were the CD Changer and OnStar. OnStar was available from 1998—1999.

Factory Options: OnStar and CD Changer Phone
^The handset for the factory Onstar mobile phone was from the era of transportables with this style being used in several high-end luxury automobiles.

Factory Options: OnStar and CD Changer Phone-Mount
^Mounting equipment for the OnStar unit was fastened directly to the outside of the center console.

Factory Options: OnStar and CD Changer Handsfree
^The handsfree microphone was routed along the A pillar, and above the roof lining, exiting out of the front overhead light, and Homelink console.

Factory Options: OnStar and CD Changer Trunk-Black-Box
^Factory CD changer located in an add-on black housing affixed to the rear seat bracing.

If anyone has any further clarification (i.e. when was the CD Changer available) on any of the above, please do not hesitate to post it so that we can better represent the facts. Thank you.

I had the OnStar option installed in my '98. There was a module installed behind a plastic cover where the CD changer is shown in the pics. I have the microphone in my car, but no mobile phone on the console. I've never subscribed to the OnStar service.

Did you save all the pieces? Such a rarity makes your Riviera all the more valuable.

Had the option on my 97 so it's definitely not restricted to 99 and up.
