2003 DTS: has the bose stereo w/ Nav.

Customer Question
Hello, My 2003 DTS...
Hello, My 2003 DTS has the Bose stereo w/ Nav. The other day it died. no power at all. I removed the back seat, do not see an amp. What else can I check, is it possible there was a failure w/ the anti-theft & the VIN stored in stereo cleared? I just replaced this stereo 2 years ago, hoping not to have to do it again, its about $1500!!
Also, no door chime, guessing this runs through the stereo speakers.

the amp is located behind the rear seatback and not the seat bottom. if you have remove it and still don't see it reply back. now if they all stopped working at the same time is would suspect a bad amp, but i would pay a dealer to diagnose it to make sure the radio didn't loose it's programming before spending a lot of money without being sure. good luck. and please accept my answer. thanks T-MAN

How do I remove the rear seat back?

Do I have to bring it to Cadillac or can any GM dealer fix this?

Cadillac Mechanic: Triston, ASE Certified Technician replied 8 years ago
you really need to take it to the dealer (any GM dealer could do it) only because after you replace the bose amp it will have to be programmed. make sure the amp or the radio doesn't just need to be re flashed. good luck. and please accept my answer. thanks T-MAN
