Need codes to hook up radio to 1999 buick century ... Cars & Trucks

Possible solution to stalling '99 Buick. My '99 Buick Century would die for no apparant reason with no error codes. After 4 days at a Buick dealership and many frustrated mechanics, the problem was corrosion from under the battery location. The wiring harness had small amounts of corrosion internally. Check the wiring under the battery for any corrosion. This has been the problem on more than 1 vehicle that we are aware of. No service bulletin has been issued by Buick.

I have a 1983 buick century 3.0L V6. The current problem I am having is I can run the car with no problem at all for about 30 minutes. After such time my choke/oil light will come on and then the car will chug and eventually die. I have been told by friends that it may be the choke, or the fuel filter. Was looking for any insight to this problem, as well as what type of choke my car would have.
