sherifdude, that part# should work according to VT2CA's write-up. Are you getting the part from somewhere we don't know about?

Why not. If it has a part number I should be able to buy it. Never heard of something having a part number and someone not able to buy it.

Welcome to Crash/Fire/Theft. One of my product lines is OEM bluetooth retrofits for various vehicles and its a PAIN IN THE ASS to get new parts and USED parts are even worse as they seem to be blocked from being transferred to another user for 1 year (as of late).

GTPprix is correct Crash/fire/theft. Only the dealership service department can order the part and if yours is bad they will order you the non bluetooth version.

Regarding the one year thing...the OP got his "new" module from another car. Maybe the other car did not activate the OnStar

yeah, sorry. The other one didnt sell for very cheap. That said, the week before I did this writeup one sold for $150 with only one bid. So I think there are deals to be had just try to get one from someone who is tearing the car apart and doesnt know what the part can do, like I did...

If thats the case hes fine, there have been some instances where OnStar wont transfer the module if its still active. This seems to be the MO as of the last two weeks or so.

I'm sure they didnt activate on the one I bought as the car was converted for racing with 35 miles on it. Also, when I setup with onstar there was no conversation as to where I got the box and they transferred my current account over to that hardware without issue.

Even though it was for a race car, i bet onstar was activated at the dealership. Most dealerships do activate it when you take delivery.

If that's true than it wouldnt matter if the box had been activated as the one I installed works great, w. onstar BT and all. I tend to think it doesnt matter regardless bu GTprix prob has more experience than me. I'm learning as I go.

Say you can get your hands on one of these OnStar boxes. And then you install it. How do you connect with your phone? I've connected my phone with my Dad's '09 Impala before and you have to push a phone button on the steering wheel before you can attempt to connect your phone. My car doesn't have this button since it's a 1SS so will it connect without the button?

You can use the buttons on the radio, can even dial with the knob and enter button within the phone menu, I just dial on my phone and it connects automatically

I tried calling my dealership and he had to call GM about this. They told me that you can't order this part unless it's fire/crash/stolen and even then they'd replace the one you had. I told the parts guy about this post and he told me that you'd have to have the dealer re-program the Onstar. I was like Yeah... no... Either way I was left empty handed. I don't want to pay 250 bucks on ebay for this. This sucks. I don't understand why GM won't let you buy this part.

It says its for a buick though. That's what I get when I search for that part number# 20842731 I wonder if it'll work. I don't want to waste 282 bucks for it not to work.

They will end up canceling the order as per the G8 forums.
Any other aftermarket bluetooth will cost at least $250, I'd say it's worth at least that.

I just can't see spending 310 dollars total for something I don't know will work in my LS camaro. I'll hold off for a while. Maybe someone else will be bold enough to order it. I don't have that kind of cash laying around.

Hey guys I bought that 2010 Camaro Bluetooth OnStar VCIM part #20842731 with Bluetooth antenna off Ebay for my wife's Yukon.

Unfortunately it cant be programmed for a 2007 GMT900 truck its only good for a few 2010 GM products like the Camaro so its no good to me.

It came out of a 2010 Camaro being stripped for racing so its has never been activated and its in perfect shape.

Im selling it for what I paid $290 with antenna included.

email me if your interested
