If you feel confident; you can change radios and add USB without losing your custom backlighting. With minor changes the USB radio can be used with your current faceplate. This is what I suggested and what the post I linked to on the Solstice Forum shows how to do. Best of both worlds!

Well..................

I bought a brand new unlocked OEM radio and then swapped radios. The brand new radio makes the same irritating screeching sound as my original radio. So the original radio is back in the car. Next up is changing Monsoon amps. I have no idea if there are differences with them like there are with radios. Here is mine. I took these pictures when I had the car apart during its mild restoration.

I will be communicating with HoosierGXP.

The screeching sound used to happen after playing the radio at higher volume for extended periods. It has since gotten worse. Now I can get the screeching sound to happen immediately upon turning on the radio and cranking up the volume. It is odd that the screeching sound now continues after turning off the radio. I actually have to turn off the vehicle "AND" remove the key to stop the screeching.....wierd!

I sure hope replacing the amp will solve the problem.

That's 'sounding' (hah!) more and more like it's the amp, then.

BTW, I've never heard of any changes in the amp, nor anti-theft locking. But then there's very few (if any) that have reported changing the amp :/
