Default 2005 chev equinox radio interface help?

I got a 2005 chev equinox ls and I want to replace the factory stereo so I figured it would be simply buying an interface and dash kit and stereo anyway I bought a LC-GMRC-01 interface but it doesn't work was told it would.Now my question is what interface would I need I'm not sure if I need one with onstar and factory amp etc I was told factory amp was under the back seat but theres none there and I don't see onstar anywhere sorry didn't have the SUV long and always owned Hondas.Any help would be greatly appreciated

factory amp would be under the right fender internal plastic finisher. Look at sonic electronics website or metra for the correct harness.

Looks like you get a lot for the price. I'd try it!
