Dorman Launches New Line Of Replacement Radios

The new Dorman replacement radio line provides coverage for popular GM, Ford and Chrysler applications.

COLMAR, Pa. — Dorman Products has launched a new line of replacement radios. Increasingly, radios are designed into vehicle dashboards as complex modules using customized sizes and shapes. Over time and regular use, original radios fail for a variety of reasons including: burned out backlighting, CD mechanism failure or jam and general electrical failures. Typically, replacing a failed original radio with an existing aftermarket replacement option may result in gaping holes in the dashboard in addition to the potential loss of steering wheel radio control functionality, according to Dorman.
 
Dorman says its new line of OE replacement radios are completely remanufactured and tested to ensure a direct-fit replacement every time. Dorman’s radios are easy-to-install with plug-and-play connections that require no programming, the company says. The new Dorman replacement radio line provides coverage for popular GM, Ford and Chrysler applications.
 
In addition to offering easy direct-fit replacements, all Dorman radios include an auxiliary jack (an upgrade over original units not including this feature). This upgrade allowed drivers to conveniently listen to music from smartphones and MP3 players through their Dorman replacement radio.
 
To correspond with the launch of Dorman’s replacement radio category, a new installation video was recently added to Dorman’s YouTube Channel to illustrate how easy it is to install these radio replacements. To view the video, click here.
