Re: car radio replacement
Does the radio power up but give no sound? If this is the case, you need to make sure the factory amplifier is first turned on. the aftermarket radio should have a remote turn on lead for amps. The Dodge caravans sometimes have Infinity sound systems in them and there may be a green wire with a red stripe in the factory side of the radio plug. This should be amp trigger. 12volts to this wire should give sound. If at all unsure, please consult a local stereo shop.

If your installing a stock radio/cd player from another Dodge the wiring plug is the same and will fit.If your installing a aftermarket radio/cd player(JVC,Pioneer,etc)you will need to buy a adapter plug that wires up to the radio and is a direct fit to your factory wire harness,so your not cutting your wires.When you buy the adapter plug it comes with a wire diagram of which wire is what.Your aftermarket radio should have a diagram also,either on it or in the manual.Hope this helps you.
all you have to do is remove the trim and checkout the plugs and the wires to see if they are the same and it came out of one caravan to the other you should not have no problem at all because in the wiring one of them is for the cd player also
The whole front plastic cover over the stereo and heater controls is screwed in with two screws at the bottom of the cover, just above the cupholders. Take out those two screws and then pop off the cover, which is held in place by clips up the sides and at the top. There are four bolt/screws that hold the radio/cassette/cd (whichever you have) in place. Unscrew them and replace the stereo. Plugs SHOULD fit, and if they do just replug it and you're good to go. If the plugs DON'T match up, get a wiring harness from Best Buy or Walmart.
But be warned! Just because the stereos look VERY similar and fit very nicely into the other spot in the dash, they may NOT have matching wiring plugs. I just put a 2003 Neon CD player into my 2002 Caravan, and the harnesses didn't match up and neither did the antenna.
