sorry for the delay............
Greetings...... “Hi, I’m Don (aka MOLurch) and I look forward to helping you!”
This is not unusual for this Unit.......
Problem is, it should be tested via GM Dealer Scan Tool to isolate between the Communication Module, Radio & if any Updates are needed.
IF the Display is dark / blank & the CD is activating, then it could be a software update or Programming issue.
apprx 1 hour labor.
IF the unit is defective, many times you can find the same Model Number Unit On-Line, E-Bay, etc for less than repair.
The problem with replacing with another Delco, is the Dealer needs to Program the Next one.
