I bought a '96 Mustang with an Alpine CHM 5620 CD player already installed. The unit appears in great shape and looks as if it were installed by a pro. It seems to load up the CD cartridge and change CDs...

This model of cd changer doesn't have the fm modual built into it. So I am wonder how this setup worked before. Most of these units had an FM tansmitter in them and you would just turn on your factory radio and set the fm tuner to a certain frequency like 89.5 or 91.3, not excatly sure on the right number, but somewhere low in the range. Turn on the stero and try tuning into differnet stations.

But like I said this model is desgined to be used with a aftermarket head unit with the proper wired connection going from the cd changer to the head unit.

Wont play through stereo

the changer plays through the fm on the radio, you need to find out what station it is tuned to. should be between 88 and 95 or so. you could just try seeking until the changer is picked up.

Will the Audiovox SP-6cds hook to an Audiovox GM250 radio?

Yes - the radio has cd changer controllers.
The Changer is FM modulated - and the radio becomes the controller.

Cannot get the unit to come on

most chargers use the power from radio so if radio is working you should be getting power to changer bemore of a wire issue so you need to find out where power cable is going if seperate to radio possible it will have fuse and earth cable that could have come loose
