Question about Verge VMP508 CD Player

How to install car stereo / CD / MP3 ?

Does anyone have advice on how to install a radio / CD into a car dashboard? I have never done this before, though I am generally handy with things.

I have a chance to buy a used Verge VMP508 in-dash car unit for $40.
AM/FM CD / MP3 / "CDC"
This will replace the factory AM-FM-cassette unit.
My vehicle Dodge Caravan 1999.
First, how do I know if it will fit or not?

Thanks a gazillion,

Car stereo


There should be a display. OE radios tend to use the car's general purpose computer display.
If there is a code It is likely to be an OE product and the code and audio manual (and spare keys) should have been passed on by the previous owner. If such things are not with the car the resale price should be considerably lower reflecting the trouble and expense not having such things can cause subsequent owners.

If the previous owner cannot or will not help I suggest you contact your local VW dealer.

I have satelite radio system in my car it came with a remote.the name of the radio is a dualcd-rw x07500 cafrinae. you help me get the radio stations on there?


First, you attach the receiver to your car's dashboard using the included plastic stick-on holder. Next, you plug the power cord into your car's cigarette lighter to give the receiver its juice, and then you slip the attached cassette adapter into the audio cassette player of your car's stereo (this passes the satellite receiver's audio signal through to your car's speakers). Finally, you'll use a thin wire to attach a small antenna, about the size of a walnut, to your front or rear window--or for clearest reception, outside the car on its hood (though attaching it to the hood will require a professional installation for best results). Then just turn on your car's stereo, but use the attached receiver to cruise through satellite stations.

The benefit of this plug-and-play approach is that you can set up satellite radio in almost any car with little time and effort. The downside is that this approach adds a lot of ugly cable clutter to your car's interior. Also, even though the receiver is small, you have to take care to attach it to your dashboard without blocking an air vent so your car's air conditioning and heating is not affected. Finally, if your car has those nifty stereo controls built right into the steering wheel, you'll find that only the volume controls work with satellite radio--you won't be able to change stations with your thumbs.

If you want to keep your car's interior looking as spiffy as possible, you can buy a different kind of satellite receiver commonly known as a "head unit." These units, such as the XM Commander, replace your car's existing receiver, so they don't need a cigarette lighter's power or a cassette-tape adapter. They're a much more elegant option, but unless you're handy under the hood, you can count on spending at least $100 extra for installation fees. (If you're in the market for a new car, note that many 2004 and 2005 models include built-in satellite radio options.)

Hope that helps........

How does the display on my CD/radio work?


Sorry to hear the display is blank even though the cd radio appears to function. The display is usually an LCD with back panel lights that makes the characters visible. Most likely the small rice globes behind the panel are blown. Usually needs some sort of desoldering and resoldering to replace. If you can take the player out from the dashboard and take it to the local audio repair shop you will save quite a bit of money to get this fixed.

I am assuming your CD radio looks something like this.

I think you may have to take the radio out of the car and open it to see what really going on. I cant think of any thing else that can be done to correct this problem but that.

2005 gm delco radio, cd/cassette player rds model...how to unlock


I recall having seen this problem posted by another and I think you are stuck going to the dealer (with proof that you didn't rip it out of someone else's dashboard) to get it unlocked. This is one of those things done to ding accessory thieves that often bites original owners after battery changes/failures.

Radio install


it's not that hard to remove the panel you'll need to pop up the defrost dashboard trim with a flat head screw driver and then you'll reveal the top screws for the center panel, then you'll need to pop out your ash tray and reveal the bottom screws. after all screws are out you'll be able to remove center panel by hand. then there will be 4 bolts holding your radio to the dash that you'll need to remove and you're done.
