If the radios do not have the same connections on them, you can buy a wiring harness from a car stereo dealer in your area. If you are lucky, the radios will have the same connectors, and the one radio will just plug into the other vehicle and work fine.

I had the same problem with Dodge Grand Caravan as well. I have a 2001 GCV and these radios go out all the time, plus each speaker has separate amps which some speaker will stop working. You will need a new stereo, however the dealership will charge you over $350 for the same replacement. I chose to go to BestBuy and buy a new Stereo for around $100 which has iPod connections which is a plus. Next problem!!! Since each speaker has its own amp, in order to get the new stereo to work, I had to install a relay by tapping into the passenger side kicker panel master amp power supply to bypass the chip. Best Buy guy will know what to do. I suggest install the stereo yourself with a kit and go back to install an amp bypass relay switch. Hope that helps.
Stock Stereos **** and Dodge make is difficult to go aftermarket.....Good Luck
In the mix of wires there will be a constant wire. this is usually labeled on the back of your deck this is the wire that need to be hooked into the hot wire. this will provide constant power to the radio that will help it keep the time,position on cd when powered off and other info.
sounds like your having a problem wiring the cd player. are you using the correct wiring harness? I just installed a cd player in my 1996 avenger and had no problems, the only thing i had a problem with was that the stock radio was malfunctioning seemed to be fixed once i installed the new cd player
