I have an '03 Chevy Impala, and I wanted to upgrade its OEM radio (head unit) with an aftermarket one. I just have one concern.
I recently realized (after reading the manual!) that the car has a "secret" settings menu. If the key is at "ON" (or "ACC"), you turn the radio off, and hold down "DISP" for 10 sec, the radio says "settings".
This menu has things like "reset oil life", whether the doors auto (un-)lock when shifting, whether the lights stay on after leaving the car, etc. I think it even has a option to sync remotes.
I was wondering if it would be possible to access those settings with an aftermarket radio. My Googling has turned up almost no info. The best I can find is this: http://www.crutchfield.com/p_120GMRC01/Metra-VT-GMRC-01-Factory-Integration-Adapter.html
It keeps the chirp sounds, when you open the door, for example. That's great, but is there an adapter to change my car's "secret" settings?
