Bose Lux Amp Upgrade in GMT800 Questions

Ok I know I'm about 8-10 years late to this upgrade, but I think my Bose premium amp is going out. After doing some research, I would like to do the Lux amp upgrade. I want to keep my UC6 radio and just reprogram it for the Lux amp. Has anyone done this lately? With research, I think I've indentified the programs for the tech 2 at the dealer. I'm just hoping they will still work when I go to the dealer (have the programs been updated since 2005 when it looks like all of this upgrade info was started.) Also, I've found all the wiring changes I need to make to the amp wiring harness to convert to the Lux amp. Any other tips would be much appreciated.

Thanks!

Pretty sure you can't do that.
You have the Premium BOSE amp meaning you have the non-lux deck. The deck/radio isn't reprogram-able like that to the best of my knowledge. You would have to source a lux regular deck,(instead of the NAV), to marry up with the lux amp. Should be pretty easy because the regular lux decks are far more common than the navigation ones.
Specifically, you should be looking for this:
LUX, Non-Nav Radio with 6 CD RPO Y91/Y92
Unknown Vehicle type-----------------15179349

This page has one of the better and often updated walk-throughs:

You can do it, that is exactly what I have. I have a UC6 LUX radio and LUX amp.

It's a really easy swap once you get the radio reprogrammed.
Here is how I would do it.
1. Unplug the current amp.
2. Get the radio reprogramed.
3. Verify the radio was programmed to the correct settings by pushing the 'Tune EQ' button. It should give you new audio options like 'driver', 'rear', 'spacious', etc.
4. Change the wiring harness and test the new amp before installing completly. (You can pull the back half off the center console with a few screws and have full access to the harness in about 2 minutes.)
5. Fully install the new amp.


It is a awesome swap and for the price beats just about any aftermarket sound system.

Check out my thread about some details about installing the amp:

Check out my thread with some information about programming the radio:
https://www.dieselplace.com/forum/76-...us-needed.html


It can be done, just make sure whoever is doing the programming is competent and STAND THERE AND WATCH. For the love of god, do not let the tech leave your sight while programming. It is far too easy for them to mis-understand and screw stuff up. This is a mod that is not endorsed by GM and most dealers will give you a hard time trying to program things different from what they are meant to be programmed to.

Sweet! Glad to see there is a way to do it - and thanks for documenting it as well!

*edit* - I just read those and you said you were unsuccessful in reprogramming your radio? Post #10 was the last one you had in that thread.

Cmon guys....the toughest part of reprogramming a UC6 6 disc to LUX is convincing the dealer tech that it CAN be done.

If you are wondering about the programming tree,

Go to https://tis2web.service.gm.com/tis2web
plug in your VIN
select radio programming
select radio part number
go thru the steps to select your program tree one by one. -- In Audio, select the program for Y91/Y92.

write down the program numbers to take with you to dealer.

Make sure to leave amp unplugged until after radio is programmed to lux.
A Non-lux radio will kill a Lux amp.

Yes, I was unsuccessful programing using my non-genuine copy of TIS2000. I was able to program it correctly once I paid the $50 bucks or whatever for access to GM's updated TIS2Web service for 2 days.
I should have updated that thread...

Moral of the story is that it is totally possible given access to the correct resources (Tech2 and GM programing).
